The best of a bad bunch to start

Due to bye weeks and roster I have to start 3 of the following RBs. Which do you guys think has the chance at the better week?

Alfred Morris
Adrian PEterson
Dion Lewis
Ameer Abdullah
Samaje Perine

Painful, I know…


I think Lewis is a good start and maybe peterson just because he’s used so dang much he’s got a high chance of racking up points. the rest are a coin toss.

Peterson, Lewis, Abdullah

I say Peterson, Lewis, Abdullah. You’re in a bind, but maybe not as bad as you think. Look at workload and base it off opportunity.

Morris (PHI): 3, 3, 1, 11
Peterson (HOU): 26, 15, 41, 23
Lewis (OAK): 11, 14, 17, 15
Abdullah (CHI): 16, 14, 22, 13
Perine (NO): 0, 0, 2, 10

Just based on the expected number of touches, I think you have to rule out Morris and Perine. Morris is going against a pretty solid defense in PHI, and Washington will be throwing the ball more after falling behind NO early. That means Thompson will be the workhorse, not Perine.

I’ll agree with the previous recommendations.
Adrian PEterson
Dion Lewis
Ameer Abdullah

My league gives points for kick & punt return yards. Dion L. gave me 29 pts last week!
