I'd go with Parker and Bell.

 

 

 

Sorry Grits, missread your message.

 

1. Parker; with a (for now) supporting coach behind him

2. Fragile Freddie (before he get’s injured...4th quarter)

 

Bell has to many bells around him and ? marks.

I'd start FWP for sure so he shouldn't even be mentioned. As for the other one Taylor against that Dall D doesn't inspire me. And while Shanny is always playing around in Denver I think MBell will be his guy especially in GL situations. So I bench Taylor.

Parker and Taylor for me. Everyone who is starting M.Bell is going to feel like they got slapped in the face when Tatum is eating away at his carries throughout that game.

I would bench Taylor. I'm a Jags homer and I saw nothing during the preseason to convince me that we won't be seeing the same Fred Taylor and the same Jags offense that we've seen the past two seasons.

 

Personally, I would rather roll the dice on Mike Bell.

Well I started Parker last night and he did well ... it would have been sweeter had Sabin got his challenge in on time and then FWP ran in a TD though.

 

So now it is between MBell and FTaylor

I'd go with Taylor @ home. Proven starter with little rbbc concern at home. I'd take a "wait and see" approach on any Denver RB game 1.

I started Parker as well, and could have slapped Sabin for his half hearted effort to challenge that play.

Personally, I would be very reluctant to start Fred Taylor. I'd go with Bell.

I am going to say Taylor.

 

He has alot to prove and he is public about him wanting to get away from "Fragile Fred"

I don't trust the denver game (last year was a mess). Tatum can get 3 TDs this week and then next week Mike Bell will get 3.

 

Its a tough call but I think I would roll with Fred for week 1 then make my decision other weeks.

My first thought was to bench Taylor but I did read that Fragile wants to prove that isn't an appropriate name for him. I would say go with Taylor this week and see what happens with the Bells in Denver.

True. Start Freddy. He's going to get all the carries. Stay away from DEN as long as you can.

Bell.

 

Sharing carries against StL will be more productive than the full load against the Dallas D

I'd start the better matchup here. Both players have a lot to prove. But would who would you rather prove it against is the question? The Dallas or STL D? Personally, I would run Bell. Yes, Taylor is tempting but I would play matchup and go Bell.

Grits...you're already jumping off the M. Bell bandwagon?

 

 

No. But if I have a viable alternative I will certainly consider it. Sometimes a wait and see attitude might be prudent just in case I am wrong (just this once)

Don't start a player because he is healthy now and you have to "use him while you can." Start Mike Bell and don't worry about it. I agree with the others; even if he gets 15 touches (I am betting closer to 20, depending on if Denver is close or way behind of course), he's better off than Fragile is against the Cowboys.

 

I started LJ, FWP and MBell this week and will not make any changes.

I'd start the guy that's going to score the most points.

As it turns out I should have benched MBell for Fred Taylor ... I gave up 5.6 points starting MBell over Taylor. The game is still up in the air.
