Fred Jackson (@ Mia) or Jermone Harrison (vs Cin)

Fred Jackson (@ Mia) or Jerome Harrison (vs Cin)? Assuming Jamal Lewis is out, Jerome will get 99% of the carries, while Fred will be splitting. Wht do you guys think? I think Cincinnati's run D is a little easier than Miami's if i'm not mistaken.

99% of 0... carry the 1...

I'm not confident there'll be enough carries for Harrison to hog. The Bengals are playing well right now, and the Browns, as usual, are miserable. Cleveland could be behind in a hurry, falling faster as Anderson heaves INT after INT. With Chad Henne making his season debut, the Dolphins aren't likely to pull away, so the Bills figure to have more carries to go around.

Plus, Jackson's much better than Harrison. I can easily see him doing more with half as many carries. I'd stick with him for now and see how the split shakes out.
