Tolbert worth my #1 WW? WHIR 100%

Postby saemick » Thu Oct 06, 2011 5:18 pm

Someone just dropped Tolbert (yeah, I know) and my current RB Corp (after Charles went down) is listed below:

Best
Ingram
Starks
DWill
Daniel Thomas
D. Carter.

We start 2 RB's.

Is Tolbert a guy I should use my #1 priority on?

I don't think I'd blow a #1 waiver priority on him. His production has been dwindling, and Norv just came out and said he wants Mathews to get 25-30 touches per game. I think you wait and see if he clears waivers and then scoop him up. Otherwise, use your #1 for whatever random waiver gem appears next week.

I think you have to pick him up just because of his skill level and potential for this season. He is definitely losing carries to Mathews, but if Ryan goes down then Tolbert is a RB2 at the least.



thanks for the help with mine

I think you should snag Tolbert off the WW. Matthews is far from durable, and if Turner starts running him 25-30 times a week, an injury is probable. IMO the risk is worth the reward... If you just sit waiting for the "perfect" waiver gem to appear, it may never happen.

He will still get some GLC. What is your complete roster and what else is in FA, look carefully and through a couple pages if you have too...

WR: Megatron, Williams (TB), A.J. Green, Ford, Nelson, T. Smith
TE: O. Daniels, F. Davis

D: TB
Scoring: 10yds rush/rec = 1pt, 25yds pass = 1pt, TD = 6pts, fumble/int. = -2pts

and the best available FA's are:

RB:

so, as you can see, there's not a whole lot out there...
