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....

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
