Who to Start Message Board
Darren McFadden vs. PIT
Adrian Peterson vs. SF
Andre Brown vs. CAR
Mikel LeShoure vs. TEN
I can only start two. I feel like the two starters have extra tough matchups, but should I leave them in just in case they have a bad game?

I completely disagree. Just because you used a first round pick on someone doesn't mean they are a 100% must start.
Not only is McFadden having a tough time learning the new offensive schemes, he's playing the Steelers who gave up only 64 yards (on 16 rushes) to McGahee and 23 yards (on 11 rushes) to Shonn Green with zero TDs so far this season.
Adrian Peterson vs SF? SF is the #1 rush defense. Aside from Marshawn, no one rushed more than 80 and no one else scored. I see a lot of 3 and outs for the Vikings this week.
1) My first choice would be Brown vs CAR. He's going to have a decent workload and has the best chance of scoring this week.
LeShourne is a nice back to have, but I think he's going to timeshare at least for week 3 since Kevin Smith has been pretty decent for them so far.
2) This choice is tough, and I can see why you're so undecided. I would go with McFadden because SF defense is on a tear and I don't trust LeShourne for week 3.
