    So I'm in a rut with both my leagues and was wondering who you would start in these situations:

    First league (Need to fill the other RB slot, other is filled with Mendenhall):

    Ryan Grant - playing against the Saints (is their D line good?) and the Packers already chose a 50/50 split carry between him and Starks
    Brandon Jacobs - Second RB / goal line carrier, but playing against the Redskins who are garbage and last year Jacobs racked in double-digit points
    Mark Ingram - Probably a no-go right? facing the packers D line...

    Other League (both RB slots - right now I chose Ryan Mathews and Brandon Jacobs):

    Ryan Mathews vs Min - starting back for the Chargers, but may not get the goal line balls
    Brandon Jacobs - look above
    Mike Tolbert vs Min - handcuff to Mathews, but does get the goal line balls
    Willis McGahee vs Oak - will get all goal line carries and then some, but Moreno is the starting RB.

    Let me know who you would start
    Brandon Jacobs in both, and Ryan Matthews on the second team...

    Agree. And possibly win a game, depending who they draw....

    I hope the Lions make it. My friends and I all have our individual teams, however we've adopted the Lions as our 'joint team' that we all want to do well too!

    Thanks Patriot and alexsong, this helps.

    Lions could very well make the playoffs, and I too want them to make it after their steroided defensive line (Silver Crush!). Besides the defensive line, Stafford HAS to stay healthy, otherwise their playoff dreams are shattered. Packers will take North, Eagles will take East, Saints have the edge on the South, and Rams will probably take the West. I'll put the Falcons taking 1 wild card spot and that last wild card spot is up for grabs - Giants (i'm biased), Cowboys, Lions.

    Just watched America's Game 2010. Perhaps a bit over-dramatic but it was a great watch. Didn't realise Charles Woodson was such a **** when he came to Green Bay.

    Agreed. I'm expecting fireworks, both before the game and during. Loads of Madden-style passing and hopefully, we'll see a good running game from both teams.

    I'm going with a narrow Saints win largely due to their Ds ability to shut down the Green Bay rush.

    Brees VS Rodgers, last two superbowl winners squaring off, this is gonna be good:cool:
