Ask the Geeks: Week 9 (Part 3) 

Wow! This has been our biggest Ask the Geeks week yet, so let’s keep it going…

Kyle asks: What two should I start out of these three RBs? LaMont Jordan, Laurence Maroney, Jamal Lewis.

Brandon’s take: Sorry Kyle, but I’m not digging your RB options this week. However, if you have to go with two of those, I’d recommend Laurence Maroney and Jamal Lewis. After a solid start, LaMont Jordan has been terrible the past few weeks and it looks like Justin Fargas and Domanic Rhodes will be stealing carries all season long. While Maroney and Lewis aren’t great plays on a week-to-week basis, they should do better than Jordan will.

Matt’s take: Jordan posted an absolutely horrible yards-per-carry average last week (just barely over 1.0), so with so many options in the Oakland backfield, it’s hard to see the coaching staff giving him a full load. This is a backfield to avoid completely until further notice.
