I would drop Lynch and get Helu. Lots of upside with Helu and I doubt Lynch would start for you.

Im also on board with dropping Lynch for Helu, love Helu's upside this year and he could be a beast if he can wrestle the starting gig from Hightower or if he goes down with an injury

The only problem I see with this is that Lynch will likely have some sporatic weeks with solid numbers and if you drop them you're going to think "awww man I wish I wouldn't have done that!" but the big picture here is that those ARE only a few sporatic weeks.

If you can deal with that and take a flier on Helu, I'd do that. All it takes is a couple poor performances from Hightower and Helu becomes the lead back. I hate to say that since I have Hightower on one of my teams, but that's Shanahan for you.

Thanks for the help with mine

Hey man, thanks for the help on my post.

I also got suckered into drafting lynch and deangelo. unlucky. i actually disagree with the majority of posters here and would say to keep lynch on your bench over helu. I will admit that helu has a higher ceiling and that lynch is on a terrible team that puts up no points and is always going to be playing from behind. That said, what lynch has in his favor is a ton of touches. Hes the man in seattle and even tho his team sucks he has a firm grasp on the starting job. He has played some tough defenses and has not done well. Id wait until he strings together a serviceable game or two then try to move him to a team with an ugly RB situation. Thats my plan at least. If you need to drop someone for helu Id say drop knowsho instead. good luck bro

I would drop Knox and Lynch and pickup both Scott and Helu...I liked Knox coming in to the year but so far not impressed with Chi decisions with WR's. As for Helu he's going to be a star in this league, will pass Hightower sooner rather than later...

Thanks for the help on mine!

agree with everyone. you're talking about RB5. helu has more upside potential.

I would drop Lynch for Helu......

I think Lynch will improve slightly once Rice gets settled into offense and once they bench Tarvaris Jackson for Whitehurst. However, I seriously doubt that he will ever make it off your bench.

Scott is going to take over for Benson during his 3 game suspension, but once that is over, Benson will resume his role and Scott will resume his role. So Scott will not do anything for you when Benson returns.

Helu is the future in DC. In my opinion, HIghtower was signed as a cheap placeholder until Helu gets his feet wet. As we saw last week, HIghtower tired a bit and Helu filled in nicely. Even Kyle Shanahan said that Helu has earned a more prominent role in the offense. I fully expect to see Helu taking the bulk of the carries by mid-season, while HIghtower is relegated to 3rd down duty and in other situations.

;-D ;-D
