    Week 5 RB - Powell vs. Ray Rice

    Hey guys,
    I have 4 solid RBs on my team.

    1. Ray Rice
    2. Reggie Bush
    3. Trent Richardson
    4. Bilal Powell

    With Rice on my bench the last 2 weeks, I have no skipped a beat with sticking Powell in the starting lineup. Do I continue with BP for Week 5 or do you think Ray Rice is due for a breakout game?

    Also, should I give up on Dwayne Bowe yet? See my roster below... Possibly put in Shorts vs. STL?

    Lastly, I may have the option to trade Rice for some WR help. A few weeks back I had a chance to get Andre Johnson but the trade fell through. Rice for Johnson?

    My roster looks like this:
    QB: RG3, Philip Rivers
    RB: Bush, Rice, Richardson, Powell, Bolden (NE)
    WR: Bowe (bench him?), Welker, Cecil Shorts, DeAndre Hopkins, Chris Givens
    TE: Jordan Cameron
    K: Bailey
    DEF: SEA

    In my opinion, this is a tough call. If Rice is going to have a breakout game, it could be against Miami (who got shredded by Sproles).

    Powell is the only real weapon for the Jets (aside from Kerley) this week. He'll see a lot of touches, but will also be keyed in on bye the ATL defense. Also, ATL could put up a lot of points on the Jets early and force them to abandon the run.

    I think Ray Rice (if practicing and healthy) is the better option this week, but it's really close.

    Good luck! Hopefully someone else can share some more insight on this.
