I made a 2-for-1 trade and have one roster spot available. My RBs are currently Slaton, Parker, Sproles, Stewart (BN). The ww has Donald Brown, Jamaal Charles, Glen Coffee, James Davis, and Fred Jackson. Im leaning towards Brown or Davis here because the situations they are in. Coffee may get some pt if Gore gets hurt and Jackson is a good look here, but Lynch is still the starter and returns after 3 games; Jackson's value will take a hit. Im not sure about Charles, no in KC looks good right now with Cassel hurt and OC gone. Any thoughts?
I would go with Brown for sure. He's splitting time with Addai, but I like his chances to wrestle that job away after a few weeks. At worst, it's a time share because Addai has proven he can't carry the load. At best, Addai gets hurt or outplayed and you have a solid starting RB on a prolific offense. Jackson and Davis are intriguing, but both play in low-scoring offenses and aren't "the man."

I'd go James Davis. He's the most likely to get a FT starting job anytime soon. Right now I'd put his upside far ahead of Brown. I see Brown being more of a split time guy at best for the entire year. Would you be shocked if Davis was a starter by week 4 or 5? I wouldn't.
Fred Jackson is great if you need a replacement starter in the first 3 weeks with Lynch out. If I had to choose one of the others I'd say Brown. Addai is always injured and Brown was an absolute stud at UConn.
