Until Ivory learns to hang onto the ball, Betts should get the majority of the playing time

I chose Betts, but I think they will split carries pretty evenly at first and Payton will stick with whoever is hot until he is not anymore.

Ladell Betts. I think Chris Ivory should get some playtime, but I think that Betts should be primary. Ivory is a rookie and is prone to rookie mistakes a lot more commonly than veteran Betts is.

Betts. He's more dependable. They will split the carries depending on what Payton's trying to accomplish. If Ivory lays it down, we may not see him again until Betts' tongue is hanging out of his mouth. I hope they both have a great day for +100 between the two, +150 all purpose yards.

Doesn't really matter though. It will be a rotation with Betts, Ivory and Wynn.

Betts runs gracefully and powerful like Duece...our two scat back system isn't going to work long enough to gain traction...Last year we had a three scat back...I say scat back because Bell and Thomas are small in height and power running style. Thomas hasn't been running well...Bush, frankly, shouldn't be in the backfield anymore...just my opinion...Bush should be our welcker

I'll go with Ivory. Betts has always excelled in his role as a change of pace/3rd down back. With that said, if our gameplan is to go out there and throw the ball all over the field to start the game, I'd switch it to Betts.
