all my rbs and wrs on my bench are on what you guys call a bye week. If james is hurt and cant play. Do i drop him for someone or do i keep him and take a goose egg in the points category for that position.

Do not drop him.

What's your record? If you're doing well, take the 0. It sucks to lose, but sometimes you have to do this.

If you absolutely can't afford a loss, try and trade him for another good RB. Even if you can't get equal value, if a loss drops you to 2-4 or worse it might be in your best interest.

Can't you drop one of your bench players for someone instead of Edge?

You don't drop James...There has to be someone else you can drop....If drop him two things are gona happen....#1 you will be the laughing stock of the league and #2 someone will grab him faster then you dropped him and prolly use him against you when you play...

Wow, impressive team!!

Honestly, put James in the flex spot, because even if he doesn't play, you've got enough good players that you may overcome a 0 from James.

Henry/Gordon/Chambers/K-Rob and a 0 is still going to total a lot of points.

That's not a whole lot of RB's/WR's. Do you have an extra kicker, defense, or qb you could drop instead? Definitely don't drop edge.
