I need 2 RB's. Who do I start?

Matt Forte
Steve Slaton
Felix Jones (not sure how much action Felix will get this week)
Tashard Choice (they say he will get most of the carries)

I say Forte and Slaton. Steve has over 150 yards receiving the last two weeks, and they'll continue to air it out at home against SF...As for Forte, I just say he's a better option because Marion Barber will start and is expected to be good to go, and like you said you never know who will get the backup carries.

Zacky's got it. I have Choice but chose (ha) to pick up Leon Washington instead because the Cowboy's backfield is unsettled as far as who is going to do what. (I was trying very hard to incorporate the chick from Total Recall into this post somehow about having to choose between three, but just couldn't pull it off!)

I think ESPN is predicting a pretty good week from Washington, although I would expect Thomas Jones to get redzone carries.

Cotch is out, so I'm hoping that Leon can get a bunch of catches as Dirty's safety valve.

Well Sanchez has had problems completing passes to his own players, but against the Raiders he can't screw it up. Right? Right???? lol.

Barber (quad/thumb) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Atlanta, the Dallas Morning News reports.

I sure hope so! I too am starting Leon, as Chris Johnson has a bye. I got him and Stewart, but my WRs are good. I agree, Slaton and Forte!

I still cannot fathom the fact that Washington got so close to 100 yards, even with Thomas Jones' 200+ yards, and the Jets STILL lost...IMO that should've been the story of Week 6.

Yep! Reminds me of Chris Johnsons career game against the Texans, which the Titans lost, of course!

I feel so bad for Chris Johnson right now. He's one of the top RB's in the game right now, and no success team-wise to show for it. I think he still had like 100 yards and around 5.0 YPC in their 59-0 whopping last week.

I just read that not only is Choice going to be used extensively this week, but Jerry Jones said that Choice will see an increase in touches the rest of the year.

Too many different sources...here's what CBS Sports says:

Cowboys RB Tashard Choice, who had a solid outing in Week 6 (92 yards, touchdown), could see a reduced role in Week 7 as Felix Jones is expected to see the field on Sunday for the first time since Week 3. Dallas is hosting Atlanta, who rank 23rd against the run. (Updated 10/23/2009).

Hmm, I am kind of leaning toward Slaton and Choice right now.

Matt Forte
Steve Slaton

people that make decisions like starting Choice over Forte are the same type I will crush on my way to the top. Don't do it!! Did you draft Forte in the 1st half of the 1st round to start a 3rd string RB?

PS, I will be starting Forte and Slaton in my league where I have them and Pierre Thomas as my flex.

I agree with you! You should never bench your studs, EVER!
