    So, who starts at RB Week 1?

    With Dwyer cut, the reasonable choices would be Redman or Jones. Everyone knows Tomlin loves Redman, but they guy barely played during the preseason. Is it a good idea to make him the Week 1 starter considering that?

    I'd go with Felix Jones. Yeah, he underachieved in Dallas. However he's still probably the most talented RB on the roster with Bell out.

    Tomlin said Redman is penciled in as the starter, but pencils have erasers. I say Jones or LSH.

    Probably Jones.

    My money is on Jones. He has been playing and looked good. Might even be a fantasy sleeper until Bell is healthy. ;-)

    I know Redman has been penciled in as the starter throughout the preseason, but is it actually official that he's starting Week 1?

    Again, to make a RB who has missed all of the preseason save for a few snaps in the first game the starter in Week 1 just seems really stupid if in fact Tomlin does that. Especially since Redman is really just a mediocre player at best.

    Gotta go with Felix Jones for Week 1.

    I think Redman will be the first on the field, but Jones and LSH will get the bulk of the carries depending on if Redman stays below a 3.0YPC stat.

    why not use LSH: he is a small back: like Doug Martin, Ray Rice, MJD who has good vision, speed and can hide behind the BIG offense-line

    No need to rush him, after the bye.
