You obviously have lots of young potential at RB and this is a dynasty league.
Keep your young RB's and see which ones "pan-out" in a couple of years.
I am thinking the same thing, but coming to a different conclusion. If I get a a good 4th WR, I wont have to worry about that position for years. Add that to the fact that I have no depth there either to cover any bye weeks or injuries and it leaves me concerned. On the other side, I dont have any elite RB, but I do have some solid #2 guys (White/Thomas) and a slew or prospects (Davis/Scott/McCoy/Brown/Jennings). I was thinking getting back Jones and keeping Davis/McCoy/Brown/Jennings still gives me a really good shot at landing 1 or 2 starters out of the bunch.
My overall thinking coming into this season was to get 1 of my 2 skill positions figured out completely (I obviously went for WR) and just throw a bunch of prospects at my other position (RB) against the wall to see who sticks. I was trying to finish that off by getting the 4th WR and keeping my prospects, but should I abandon any depth at WR to keep another prospect or 2 at RB?
I don't think Jennings will "pan-out", but any of the others have a decent shot.
I inherited a horrible dynasty team before the 2006 season and decided to pick a ton of young RB's for the future. I drafted DeAngelo Williams, LenDale White, Marion Barber, and Brandon Jacobs that year and held onto them to win my league's championship last year.
Chances are you won't get as lucky as I did, but a couple of your young RB's may turn out to be studs.
Good move on dumping the Raiders. I am just losing faith in Thomas by the day, and see McFadden as a potential franchise back. As long as Bush is there (and healthy) he will always take a significant amount of plays away from Thomas.
But in general, I take it you are suggesting I dont pursue the Thomas/Scott for McFadden deal?
