Well as much as it pains me to say this, there is no one there right now who is more than a one week flier at most (Harrison since Lewis was out yesterday).

I think you are best off to either dump him for an upgrade somewhere else on your roster (if you can), or hold on to him for now hoping for a lucky break (injury to someone bringing one of these guys into the spotlight0.

I agree with the previous post it might be best just to stash him, wait for a good game then try to sell him. However if you have room on your roster it may not be bad to pick up J. Charles. with the Chief going winless so far this season they may be looking to shake things up and give Charles more of the workload going forward, plus if your league gives points for for special teams, then his return yards could eventually be worthwhile. However if you need a more immediate ROI go for Mewelde Moore. I know that San Diego make Mendenhall look like a damn superhero, but they have a tenancy to do that. The steelers are clearly steering themselves out of the Willie Parker era and Moore could be good for short yardage touchdowns almost every game. Plus the steelers schedule is all buttery and nice for their runners with Detroit and Cleveland Next up and Kansas City, Oakland And Cleavland again heading into the playoffs.

Morris may be a solid play now with Taylor out.

i wouldn't do Morris because hes a patriots running back, and they tend to be pass heavy. unfortunately i am stuck in this situation early in the season i made the mistake of making a Benson McFadden trade. now i know i was on the wrong end of that(even though lately reports are saying Benson is having hip problems.

i know i should but i cant bring myself too drop McFadden, i am going to try and add him in as a filler for some trade probably. i guess i am gonna continue checking this thread because i need a solution too the McFadden situation as well.
