RB2 question? Mike Bell or Caddy? Bell looks to the be the goal line back when the Saints get into goal line situations which could make him a good RB2 candidate. However Caddy looks to be the clear #1 RB in TB however he is facing the (better than people think) Pats run defense. I'm leaning towards the guy who will get the carries (like Benson) but I'm not sure what if anything Caddy will put up on the ground. The rest of my team is in my sig.

PPR 10 team Money League
QB Tom Brady; David Garrard*
RB Maurice Jones-Drew; Cedric Benson; Mike Bell*; Cadillac Williams*;
WR Reggie Wayne; Wes Welker; Marques Colston; Derrick Mason; Roddy White*; Santana Moss
TE Dallas Clark*; Visanthe Shiancoe*;
DEF Falcons*
K Elam*

I need to pick two of Westbrook (@ Wash), DeAngelo Williams (vs Buf), and Thomas Jones (@ Oak) [and I guess Choice (vs Atl), but he's clearly #4].

I was shocked to see Washington was #4 vs the run, but they are #17 vs RB passing. I'm expected to win this week, so I'm looking for the highest minimum here, not highest potential. I'm leaning Williams and Westbrook, since Jones is kind of up and down, but he's got the better match up...

Rest of the team:
QB: Rogers
WR: Colston, DeSean Jackson, VJackson
TE: Heath Miller
K: Prater (or some scrub, if he doesn't clear)
Def: NO

I need to start two of these running backs...

Matt Forte
Thomas Jones - sat him last week, doh!
Marion Barber
Rashard Mendenhall

Leaning towards Barber against Atlanta and Jones against Oakland. Is Barber healty after that bye week or is Choice going to steal carries and scores again?

Forte has been a bust as my top pick, but he does have a Cincinnati team that just allowed Slaton to get back on track. Mendenhall is studly, but he is goes against that wall in Minnesota and he's not catching his way to victory like Ray Rice.
