    Marcel Reece or Trent Richardson?

    Reece gets alot of garbage points but Trent has been consistent.

    • Hmmmm....this is the only tough one I've seen today. I've been riding Reece and will ride him one more week this week, but if I had Trent....hmmmm....man, that is tough! I think I'd go Reece if no chance of sharing carries really as he has delivered every time and knows that this is his LAST week to showcase what he has. He will be fighting (in his mind) for a contract all riding on ONE game. They say contract years the players play harder, so how much harder does it mean for ONE game. They say McFaddie is for sure back next week I think so Reece is one and done after this. I bet on that guy I'd say. ;)

    • The Bengals have historically been terrible against the Raiders. Given the option, I'd have Reece in my starting lineup.

    • Nice compliment, but you don't bench Richardson regardless of the matchup.

    • Its a tough call but Reece has been very consistent since the McFadden and Goodson injuries and if the Raiders lean on the pass it's great because he gets a ton of targets in the passing game...I'd have to start Reece considering that TRich is playing against the Steelers Defense which will likely bottle up the Browns ground game...They'll both get big workloads but I think Reece will have better success against the bengals than Trich against the steelers...It is extremely tough to sit richardson though with how well he's been playing...If either Goodson or McFadden are active play trich...

    • I like Richardson more. He has been carrying the load for the Brown's and handling it well. Raiders are always playing from behind as of late. Which limits Reece a bit more.

      • I have both in my starting lineup. On the upside both will get their share of yardage. On the down side both are having problems getting into the end zone. Reece had opporunities to run the ball in from inside the 5 yd line against NO def. Trent couldn't finish the job against Dal def. You can hope Reece might get a rec TD, I think Palmer prefers Meyer in that situation. With Trent you can hope that the Steeler offense will be 3 and out most of the game and Trent gets some opportunities in the second half.
