Pick 2 outta 4 RBs

In a PPR league, I am starting Steven Jackson, but have Ray Rice on bye. I need to play 2 of the following 4 RBs:

1. Jerome Harrison (vs GB)
2. LeSean McKoy (@ WAS)
3. Felix Jones (vs ATL)
4. Justin Fargas (vs NYJ)

THANKS!

I'd go with 3 and 4, tho that may be because I've heard of them and know they'll get some carries.

I'd say Fargas and McCoy. I wouldn't want to play Felix until I've seen him run once, and you never know if Harrison will even get any touches in Cle.

Fargas is far and away the better play of that group. Felix and McCoy are probably pretty close for second though.

Thanks. Isn't Fargas slated to get most of the carries? If that is true, how come Michael Bush has a slightly higher +/- in FO's Fantasy Matchups post?

Been wondering that too. Last week, they got close to the same number of carries, but Fargas put up 4 more points. Would love to see some clarity, as I have both Fargas and Bush and I need to start one or the other.

Anyone?

Fargas is the starter. 5 of Bush's 8 carries last week came in the second half of a blowout loss. Fargas got 5 carries and 62 yards in the first half. There's no indication that Bush will have an increased role going forward.

Fargas is worth playing if you're thin at RB. Bush isn't worth a roster spot.

Definitely Fargas and McCoy based entirely on the fact that they will get the lion's share of carries on their respective teams this week.

I'm also going with Fargas and McCoy, based entirely on the fact that this question is from last week, and we already know how each of these backs did then.
