Ryan Torain *** WHIR ***

Postby prophecy135 » Wed Oct 05, 2011 1:03 am

Yes of course I want to add him, question is who to drop for him. Options are:

DeMarco Murray
Reggie Bush
Ben Tate

does Bush carry much value anymore??? It IS ppr for what its worth

Thanks for looking, leave a link!!!!!

Drop Bush.

In MIA:
Thomas > Bush by a big shot
So there's no real value of having Bush. Especially when Torain is an up-and-coming star in Washington

you guys would drop Bush over someone like Murray? Felix has a bye to get a little healthier. I grabbed him banking on Felix being out for a while and that didnt look like it worked so well.

While I dont like Bush, I think he does carry value, especially in ppr format. With the bye, maybe the fins can figure out that Bush doesnt run between the tackles and try to figure out a better way to get their investment involved running outside and getting him the ball in open space. Seems odd to me that they would go out and get this guy and not know he cant run between the tackles.

what's the rest of your team look like?

problem is Slaton is really similar to Bush's style of play, So Thomas is the workhorse and Bush and Slaton are both change of pace backs.

All that stands in Murray's way is an injury to felix jones and whamo full time starting job

Bush needs Thomas AND Slaton to go down for him to really have any value

Doesn't seem impossible.
I wouldn't want to to forget about Tashard Choice though. I don't know if Murray is higher in the depth chart than Choice.
I'd rather have Murray though. Because Choice does have recurring injuries as well.

yea drop bush... Reggie doesn't have a chance in hell at getting the starting Job, at least Torain has the opportunity plus he's better than Bush anyways

true forgot about choice but Murray can run the ball...Bush can't, Dallas will let Murray run

Felix has a bye to get healthy though, and Dallas isnt exactly a run heavy team are they? It seems like they like to throw? I dont watch them much so I may be wrong. Are they more balanced then I think they are?

Miami on the other hand is the definition of run heavy.

I think I'm having a hard time cutting a starter and keeping a guy who's possibly 3rd on the depth chart, though I honestly think he's 2nd.
