Default Feather boards vs hold down rollers

I am routing tongue & groove in some 1" x 8' lumber, useing a bosh table with feather board hold downs on the infeed and out feed. Question is instead of the feather boards would the rollers hold the lumber down on the table face and do they stop kick back like feather boards?

unless the pieces are short I wouldn't use the table...
feather boards on the router table and rollers on the table saw here...
the boards are easier to use...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Hi Russ. We use the yellow Board Buddies on the table saw, for long rips only. The Board Buddies also pull the stock toward the fence, and will not turn backwards. They will definitely stop kick back. We use featherboards on the router table and fence, but just for long runs, or hard to manage stock. I have never been worried about kickback on the router table, even with large bits.
