Derrick Ward worthy of a pickup in 12 team league?

Postby TexasMade8810 » Thu Sep 08, 2011 1:51 pm

Is he worth picking up if im razor thin at rb. I know Ben Tate is the popular name for Fosters backup but everything im reading says he's getting snaps with the 1st team? I may even potentially start him at flex if he's gonna be getting the carries because my other options are Steve Smith (car) :-t (this is who i have to go with right now) or Mike Sims Walker (i wanna see how the rams wr situation plays out in week 1). What do you guys think?

They are still saying that Foster is a game time decision. I think Ward is worth a flier this week. Even if foster goes
I imagine it will be in a limited role. The Colts suck versus the run and Ward does have potential as a flex spot for
week 1.

If you are indeed that thin at RB, he's certainly worth a flier for at least this week. At this moment, I would be surprised to see Foster play at all. I think both Ward and Tate can have decent days against a poor run defense that may be demoralized with the loss of Peyton (and maybe their season).
