Do you sit Forsett or R Jennings (both Q) for Ryan Matthews? - Htown Tiger
Both my starting RBs, Forsett and Jennings, are questionable. Looks like both will possibly play, but you question how effective both may be with lagging injuries. Do you sit 1 of them for a healthy Ryan Matthews (against NE)? And if so, which one? Jennings plays Tenn Forsett plays Mia...

Give up: Foles & R Bush, Receive: Brady & D Martin - Htown Tiger
Obviously, pre-draft this would be a no brainer. But given how bad TB is, and how it looks as if age is catching up to Brady, its a tougher decision. My current RBs are (can only play 2, no flex): Reggie, R Jennings, Sproles, Deangelo Williams, Ryan Matthews, and Bobby Rainey. Jennings is bas...
