RB Help WHIR

Postby bigmac41 » Wed Oct 05, 2011 10:48 am

Currently I own Jones-Drew, Greene, Thomas, and Karim (handcuff to MJD) as my running backs. Thomas is having a good year yards per touch wise, but he seems that he doesn't figure into NO's offensive stucture too much with Ingram and Sporles getting majority of the running back touches. I was wondering if I should dump Thomas in favor for any of these guys available on waivers in my league:

Ryan Torian WSH
Isaac Redman PIT
Ryan Grant GB (solid Week 3, expected to play in Week 5)
Thomas Jones KC

I'm just wondering if I should dump Thomas for anyone of these guys and if so, for whom? I'm struggling for any RB production outside of MJD and I'm looking for a guy who can play as a bye-week replacement and potentially start over Greene if he continues to struggle. Are any of these guys viable?

Thanks, leave a link

EDIT: Non-PPR league, 1 pt for every 10 yds rush/rec and 6 pt for every TD

I think with Ingram and Sproles there is no chance you can rely on Thomas as a starter. Torain is in a similar spot though, he could become the skins featured back or he could get 2 carries a game, and I wonder if even the great Lord knows himself. I think Grant has the best chance of making an impact in the long-term, and Redman in the short term so whenever your BYE week is I would act accordingly. Hopefully Greene starts to pull through for you

I'd go with Grant if you're looking long term and I'd take a look at Redman if you need someone this week. I'm not sure of Mendenhall's status, but Redman has a shot to be useful if he starts.

Please help with mine: viewtopic.php?t=501686

Grant>Torain>Tjones>Redman


Who else do you have to discard?? If there isn't anyone else at the bottom of your totem poll, I'd say that PT is a reasonable drop. Grant is a slightly stronger flex play (especially since Starks didn't wow anyone with feature back duties last week).


take a look at mine?

I picked up Redman this week as I am hoping he blows up, then I can trade him. Torrain is hot this week, who will it be in the Shanny carousel next week?? Grant is going to split with Starks all season.

Help me please:
