Ask the Geeks – Week 12

Atg ButtonHere are our responses to the first question(s) for the week. Remember, you can always ask us questions by clicking the Ask the Geeks logo on the left sidebar (or this link).

Shirley asks: Alright so I picked up Warrick Dunn but today I saw that he has a back injury and that he’s questionable for Sunday. If he becomes probable, I may have to grab him again. So in dropping Dunn, I picked up Ryan Grant who’s been doing relatively well lately. In addition to Grant who’s playing the Saints this week, I also have Chris Johnson and Thomas Jones who are playing each other. Which two should I start: Thomas Jones, Chris Johnson, or Ryan Grant? I’m leaning towards starting Grant and then one of the other two. Thomas Jones is going up against the strong Titans defense but Chris Johnson and the whole Titans running game has been struggling these past few games. I need help from my FF guru!

Brandon’s take: Hey Shirley, I’m not sure how Ryan Grant was available in your league, but props to you on the great free agent pickup! You definitely want to start him this week against the Saints. In terms of your other two guys, the Jets and Titans have two of the best run defenses in the NFL and in my Hits and Misses post this week, you can see that I’m not especially high on either of the Titans running backs. By the way, Warrick Dunn practiced in full on Friday and is ready to start this weekend, so if you can still grab him, you might go with he and Ryan Grant. If you can’t get Dunn (don’t drop T.Jones or Johnson to get him!), than start Thomas Jones with Grant. Hope this helped!
