Choose 3 RB

Rashard Mendenhall vs. Tampa Bay
Arian Foster vs. Dallas
Matt Forte vs. Green Bay
Clinton Portis vs. St. Louis.

I know the obvious choice is Forte, Foster, Mendenhall, but all three have tough to very tough matchups while Portis' matchup seems much better. Should I bench one of my three top scorers or am I overthinking things?

PPR matters big time. I am guessing traditional scoring. In that case, I'm benching Forte. GB DL is going to eat CHI OL up, and GB Offense will force CHI to pass anyway.

I think Forte matters in the passing game, however. Portis will get some easy TDs against STL. I almost have to say Foster. RBs are more impacted by matchups than most other positions.

Portis looks terrible. He got two short gift TDs last week. Start your studs.
