Ryan Williams down. Need a RB.

Postby pacoweaz » Sun Aug 21, 2011 11:19 am

With Williams down for the year, I'm weak at RB. Have Foster, Starks, and Stewart. Need another backup. Long list of average at best candidates. Who do I grab? Non-PPR, do get points for KR/PR TD's.

Right now none of those players intersts me unless there are injuries in front of them. I guess the one I may take a flyer on is Ridley in NE, he has played well in the pre season, but I can see Bellicheck sticking with Green-Ellis as his main rb and have a 3rd down option. If you get points for pr/kr yards then Stephens-Howlings could be a option, but assuming it is only points for tds. Good luck.

Eh...I guess I'd roll with Carter. He seems to be the handcuff to Addai and should get the most all of the carries if Addai goes down. Not sure what he'll do if Addai stays healthy but he might turn out to be a flex option.

Yep Carter is my choice here as well. I think that even if Addai stays healthy, Carter will get a majority of the goal line looks. If Addai stays healthy, Carter may put up low yardage numbers but a decent amount of TDs... If Addai gets hurt, Carter could be a RB2 for your team.

Don't think Tate was an option. I decided on Carter. Thanks for the input.
