RB Starting Conundrum


#1

This may be a no-brainer, but I’m having reservations and would appreciate some wisdom from the crowd.

I got David Johnson, Joe Mixon, Jordan Howard, Peyton Barber, and Kerryon Johnson.

1 and 2 seem easy enough with Johnson against Washington and Mixon against the Colts, but I’m having hesitation with just throwing Howard in there going against Green Bay. In his two matchups with the Packers last year, Howard only managed to get 107 rushing yards on 33 carries, 2 receptions for 10 receiving yards on 2 targets, and 1 rushing touchdown.

As improved as that Bears Defense will be, I still worry they’ll be playing from behind and Howard’s usage will go to crap. I think Peyton Barber against the Saints (or even Kerryon against the Jets) could put up a better game.

Thoughts?
