My league has crazy stupid scoring. For rushing/receiving, you get 3 points for 50-74 yards, 6 points 75-99, etc. So, you get no points if you don't reach 50 yards rush/rec. It is a PPR league however.

I am tied going into tonight with one of these guys to play. My opponent has nobody. So, basically, I need to pick one and just get 1 point from them. What do you guys think? Normally, I would go with Bush and be safe. However, I am not sold that he will get 50 yards if Forte plays the entire game. Forte could be good for a catch and the win, but what if he tweaks the ankle again and doesn't return.

I am leaning toward Bush bc I think he might be the safer play.

Go Forte as long as you see he is good to go in the pregame. Forte is good for one catch as long as he makes it through the first quarter... Bush could get no catches, not TDs and under 50 yards...

That makes sense to me. That 50 yard min really affects it alot. It sounds as if Forte will be ok. I almost wish he would just sit another week (although I am sure that most of you out there won't agree :)

Thanks Tim
