Advice? Running Back Help!???

Post by Vega.. » Fri, 01 Nov 1996 04:00:00


Well, here we go again.  I need to start 3 of these 5 running backs! Do you have time
to throw in your 2 cents? (oh, 10pts for rush TD, 7 pts for rec TD, and 1 pt per 10
yards combined!)


Edgar Bennett   vs. Detroit     (  ???  )


Rodney Hampton  vs. Arizona     (  ???  )

Eddie George is a starter every week.  Is there anyone else in this lame crew of RB's
that deserves a weekly start, or should I just try take advantage of weak opposing D's
and keep switching them up?

Luckily, I have Bledsoe, Marino, Rice, T. Martin, C. Pickens, J. Reed, C. Johnson, J.
Morton, A. Del Greco, Kasay, and the San Fran D, and don't rely too heavily on my
running backs.  Although, it would sure be nice to pick the right ones for once!

Thanks,
L.A. in Vegas

In addition to George, I would plug Bennett and Hampton in this week.

Bennett, because with GB's receiving corps hurting now, they are going
to have to go to the running game a little more (and also to the TEs).
This doesn't mean that Edgar will be used on the goal line, but he
should get more carries.

Hampton, because the Giants seem to have learned how to pass protect
lately, giving more time for Dave Brown to throw and complete, which
makes their running game much more effective.  With the passing game
going, the play action works better, and opponents can't stack 8 men
on the line against them.  In essence, because they can pass now, they
have more balance, which improves the running game from where it had
been earlier in the year.
