Do I need a 4th RB?

Postby Shotz » Fri Sep 07, 2007 10:18 am

My league starts 1 QB, 2 RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1 K, & 1 DST

This is my first draft and everybody else has 4-6 RBs with at least 4 of them quality players. I only have 3 quality RBs. I'm covered for bye weeks so should I be concerned about my lack of depth at the position? Do people take 4 quality RBs for week to week matchups or just insurance for injuries?

Here's my team:

Starters:
QB: Alex Smith
RB: Joseph Addai, Willis McGhee
WR: Ocho Cinco, Marques Colston
TE: Vernon Davis
K: Shayne Graham
DST: 49ers

Bench:
QB: Jeff Garcia
RB: Deuce Mcallister, Michael Robinson
WR: Darrell Jackson, Ted Ginn Jr.
TE: Eric Johnson
K: Joe Nedney

Any input will be welcomed. Thanks in advance.

RB's are fantasy gold - ya need them for injury insurance, matchups to a lesser degree and also for their trade value. Not sure why ya wasted picks on an extra TE & K - those should have been RB's or RB & WR. I would dump them and scour the WW.
