It really comes down to Jones-drew or Slaton.

The last 6 weeks Jones-drew is one of the hottest backs in the game, if not the hottest.

He is going against the vikes D and Slaton is going against the Browns weak D.

When someone is really hot I like to stick with them.

I would vote Jones-Drew.(but Slaton would not be bad either) smirk

Vikes rushing D is tough but Jones-Drew also catches passes out of the backfield which the vikes arent the best at stopping. Just look how Warrick Dunn shredded them last week doing that. Im personally starting MJD but tempering my expectations, i could see 35 rushing yards, 55 recieving yards and a TD

Thats a no brainer, AP and Slaton if you ask me. Unless the Williams boys dont play then I would have to consider MJD.

AP is a must start every week.

I think Slayton is the other guy you need. MJD is to inconsistant for me to like. Hightower had his 3 weeks in the sun already.

couldn't agree more....

Peterson is by far the most feared back in the NFL now....LT (dont know whats going on there) Westbrook (more receptions but needs crutches to get down the field) and everyone else appears to have a RB by committee...

Slayton is a pleasant suprise this year i say go with these two and you shouldn't be disapointed

I would say AP and Slaton also. MJD is a matchup guy just like Micheal Turner. They are both awesome when the matchup is right, when its wrong they turn to average at best. Slaton will have a big game. Just checked out MJD stats in our yardage league. 4 weeks he has scored over 20 points and 5 of the other 6 weeks he was under 10 points. Granted last week he did have a good game in what seemed to be a poor matchup, but i would play the odds that this week will be tough.

Im trying to figure out which of my recievers to play. I have R White against the panthers. Calvin Johnson against the bucs and Santana Moss against the seahawks. I have to use 2 of these guys....

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
