Jets and Patriots MNF game - start Shonn Greene or Danny Woodhead?
"Patriots run game will maybe pick up 40 yards total against Jets D. Go with Greene he is there bigger back to pound them early and often."
You, sir, are an idiot.
Greene had 52 yards, a 3.5 yard average and no scores in their first meeting. LT did all the damage running but while he's fallen off a lot since week 2 the Pats run defense has gotten better with the youngsters getting experience. Greene also only has 1 TD this year.
Woodhead has scored 3 more TDs then Greene and they are equal on total yards even tho Woodhead has a lot less touches.
I'd love for you to explain how the Jets will hold the Pats to 40 yards rushing on a cold, windy day in Foxboro. It makes absolutely no sense.
Should I try and buy low on Shonn Greene by offering Addai straight up for him?
I would say YES because Greene is going to come alive. Im kind of in the same boat, but if you don't need Addai i would go for it. The Colts Offense is so spread out, so hard to tell who is going to have a big game. Look what happened with Donald Brown last week. That should have been all Addai.
Hope this helped.
Do you think that Shonn Greene should be one of the finalist for the Heisman Trophy?
He is no doubt the best RB in the nation. Problem is twofold. On e is he is a one year flash. He didn't have the grades to play Div 1 his first two years, and will be going pro after this season. Almost impossible to play one year and win it, regardless how good.
Also, most of Heisman is hype. Iowa is terrible at promoting it's player. Main reason Chuck Long and Banks didn't win it.
Should I start Matt Forte or Shonn Greene for fantasy?
I say Matt Forte. Lion Defense is not good and the Ravens D even though they are getting older are still the Ravens D until the prove otherwise. I think you have a week to week pick on these two unless one comes out on fire. Both should be solid this year though.
Should I start Shonn Greene this week against Miami?
dont play Greene, He will be productive in the upcoming weeks due to the fact that the Jets have the most rushing attempts in the NFL. BUT Miami is 4th against the run, and Greene is splitting carries. You cant start him this week
How many combined rushing yards do you think LT and Shonn Greene will get this week against the Steelers?
Here are my predictions:
LT - 28 yards
Greene - 21
That makes a total of 49 yards. The Steelers will not allow either runner to top 30 or 50 yards for that matter. They still rank 1st in rush yards allowed with 60.1 yards per game. Point being, they don't allow 100 yard rushers. I pegged both backs lower than 50 yards because essnetially LT and Greene are not top 5 NFL backs. Greene has been known to show bursts of speed, but he is too inconsistent. As far as LT goes, his best days are behind him. That being said, the Steelers will win against the Jets, and they will stop the run as they have all season. They have Troy Polomalu one of the fastest safeties in the game, which adds to the run stopping ability, and don't forget that Harrison is still a linebacker that can snuff the run.
Will Shonn Greene get the goal line carries for the NYJ and be a weekly FLEX play for my fantasy team?
NOO. Do not drop Lynch. Greene is merely a Leon-Washington replacement. Nonetheless, Thomas Jones is still the top back. With the Jets toying with Oakland last week, Greene saw plenty of opportunities. Look for Greene only to handle 5-10 carries a week. Close games mean less carries for the rookie. Remember, Jones is still a top 10 back in this league. His opportunities certainly will not dwindle as he has done everything for the Jets this season.
Marshawn Lynch is in for a few big weeks this year. He is constantly receiving more carries than Fred Jackson. Last week, Lynch had 17 carries to Jackson's 5. Similar numbers the week before that. Also, Lynch is a top receiving threat in the passing game, and if your in a PPR league, Lynch is a no-brainer to have on your bench, and start during nice matchups, including next week against Houston. Lynch should find the end zone.
