What looked to me to be a deep RB corps at the start of the season now looks painfully weak.
So I hit my first RB bye this week.
Arian Foster KC
Cedric Benson BYE
Darren McFadden @SF (Been injured, might be back)
Tim Hightower BYE
Clinton Portis IND (don't see him playing)
Marshawn Lynch @ CHI
I was going to roll with McFadden, but he may not play. Even if he does how much work will he get versus Michael Bush?
Lynch I'm not so sure about with a new team and @ Chicago.
There's really no one on waivers, except perhaps Deji Karim, MJD's backup in JAX. We get return yards @ 25/pt, and last week he got 145 return yards, plus 70 rushing yards on 15 carries. Now that was against Buffalo where they ran the ball 37 times combined. They play Tenn this week, so will probably not run Karim anywhere near that much. So I'm weighing dropping Kevin Walter, my 4th receiver, and betting on return yards versus rushing yards with my above options.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
