Do I start Laurent Robinson, or Ryan Mathews?

    Thoughts/opinions?

    I feel Robinson is a good start, as he has good chemistry with Romo and will be starting with Austin out again.

    But Ryan Mathews is capable of putting up anywhere from 15-30 per game with his running ability, and as a threat out of the backfield. It just all depends on how many touches Tolbert will steal from him.

    Who should I go with in my flex position, Mathews or Robinson?

    I started Robinson last week in 2 leagues. I don't regret it at all.

    Chargers are floundering. We're rising. I say go with the hot hand.

    Thanks for the input. To add to the point on starting Robinson, the Chargers play the Bears who have a very stout defense. Although with their cover 2 scheme, there could be a lot of checkdowns to Mathews.

    Then again, they might be checkdowns if Tolbert steals his touches. It's such a toss up.

    If I start Robinson, I would be starting all three of Romo, Dez, and Robinson. Washington's defense isn't anything special by any means, but they've only allowed 8 passing TD's all year.

    Hmm, decisions, decisions.

    Same here, Robinson is doing what I thought Miles would when I drafted him.

    Are any of you in the ZONERS ANONYMOUS league on ESPN?

    Someone beat my team (Walk-the-Plank) by 1 pt last week. Ouch.
    At least I can't blame in on D Murray; he's been great.

    I would roll with Mathews. I look for him to have a pretty good week against the Bears D.
