What order would you rank these RBs? Who do I pickup/drop?
Sammy Morris Michael Bush Jerome Harrison Willie Parker Kolby Smith Maurice Morris LenDale White
Right now I've got Parker and Bush, with Smith in my IR spot. I'm leaning toward adding Sammy Morris, since I think he will have the most opportunity when he returns.
12 team league (return yds = pass yds)
QB: J. Cutler RB: M. Forte, R. Rice, D. Brown, M. Bush, W. Parker WR: G. Jennings, M. Colston, T. Houshmandzadeh, J. Cribbs, E. Royal, L. Moore TE: J. Carlson D/ST: New England Patriots (keeping for playoff schedule - Car, @Buf, Jac), Houston Texans (used last week @Buf) K: N. Kaeding IR: K. Smith (KC)
Currently planned moves: 1. W. Parker for R. Moats (doubt I get him with #7 waiver) 2. Texans for Falcons (vs Was this week) 3. L. Moore for K. Winslow 4. L. Moore for L. Coles (if I miss on Winslow) 5. W. Parker for S. Morris (is he the best option of the above RBs?)
I actually would stick with Parker. For any of those others to have any relevance, something drastic would have to happen. Morris would be a top choice, but who knows what his knee is like and when he'll come back. If you ever had to use any of them, that means something pretty bad has happened to your team. And Parker is as likely as any of them to end up relevant.
12 Team League. We start 2 QBs and get .5 PPR, otherwise standard scoring QBs: Stafford, Fitzpatrick, Collins RBs: Charles, Mendenhall, Best, Starks, Carter, Karim WRs: D. Jackson, Marshall, S. Smith, Green, TE: Hernandez, Cook
I rank all of them as equally poor. I don't think any of them are worth picking up, unless you're in a deep league, and then *maybe* I'd pick up Bush for the short term. Who knows when McFadden is back, but until he is, Bush will see some carries at the least. The rest, who knows...likely nothing. Parker should get about the same number of carries as Bush, but for the long term. So, I wouldn't go after any of them.

Actually, we start two flex in this league. I'm definitely set at RB with Rice/Forte and at WR with Colston/Jennings but I lost my best flex option when Leon Washington was injured, and other than him my flex spots have been full of underperforming and/or inconsistent potential the entire year. Cribbs has been the best but inconsistent since he relies on return yards. Ideally, Houshmandzadeh takes control of one of the flex spots but that still leaves me with one more to fill and I could definitely see someone like Sammy Morris, Jerome Harrison, or Willie Parker being a candidate for that spot at some point. I'm just trying to decide on who is more likely to produce later in the year. I guess Danny Ware could also be an interesting sleeper with Bradshaw's status.
Waiver order in my league resets to the reverse order of the standings every week so the only way I can get one of the hot pickups is if I can predict one in advance. These waiver rules make it harder for me to try to improve my middle-of-the-pack team but the bottom couple teams are slowly becoming more competitive which I guess is a good thing.
