RB injuries galore. WW pick ups WHIR

Postby gregtucker87 » Tue Oct 09, 2012 11:31 am

With all the RB injuries and other stuff going on do you think any of these guys are worth picking up?

Alex Green (GB)
William Powell (ARI)
Kendell Hunter (SF)
Brandon Bolden (NE)
Bilal Powell (NYJ)
Jacquizz Rogers (ATL)
Mark Ingram (NO)
Toby Gerhart (MIN)
Jonathan Stewart (CAR)
Jahvid Best (DET)

These are some of the RB's sitting on my leagues waiver wire right now. Any on them worth picking up and seeing how things go? And if so who should I drop off my roster (roster in sig) Thanks, WHIR!

You really don't have anyone to drop to pick up any of those players listed. Alex Green has the most intrigue and upside but Starks will be involved in the GB backfield as well. You have 2 RB's with a BYE this week but should be okay.

The only player I might think about dropping (and only because he is on a BYE) is WR Moore, but as soon as you do someone will pick him up. RB Green might be worth the risk, but GB has played this game before with the RB carousel so it is a huge risk either way, though it could pay off big. I would want to wait and see first before dropping anyone from your roster.

I think moore would be the only guy id consider droping, mainly because Megaton and mike wallace are past there byes and im hoping steve johnson and maclin will pick up a little bit with there schedules getting a bit easier. I was thinking if it would be worth taking a chance on any of these guys if they break out since i dont really really need moore

Best is the only one with the potential to turn your team around if he comes back. Stash best

I like Alex Green but I wouldn't know who to drop on your team....You really don't need any runningbacks.

Tough decision on who to drop but if you need a RB I'd say Green and drop Moore.

Thanks for the help guys. I think ill stay put for now and see how things play out next weekend. I think the only move ill make is picking up Owen Daniels as a back up TE, since I had an open roster space since Ryan Williams is gonna be out for the season. Got a good match up against the Bills when V. Davis has a bye.
