Postby SEAfense71 » Sat Oct 15, 2011 8:39 am

I would......Jabobs and Tolbert actually have alot in common right now. Both players have minor injurys and will be coming back soon, both players are 2nd on the depth chart but get around 10 touches per week. With that said you should pick up Tolbert becuase Mathews is more of an injury risk than Bradshaw and you own Mathews so it only makes sense.

Thanks. I was kinda leaning towards that too. I will need to pickup another quarterback next week though (Brady's bye week 7) and Jacobs is the most droppable player on my roster. Anybody else?

Tolbert makes the most sense in terms of value overall but to your team you need to snag a b/u QB post FA QBs and matchups which I would drop Jacobs for then after lineup locks put in a claim for Tolbert if he's still there, if not no big deal (post FA RBs also).

FA QB's available for Week 7:
Matt Hasselbeck vs HOU
Matt Schaub @ TEN
Tim Tebow @ MIA

FA RB's available:
Jackie Battle
Roy Helu
Pierre Thomas
Ben Tate
Joseph Addai
Delone Carter
Earnest Graham

I suppose I could drop Jacobs now for a QB (probably Schaub?) since I'll need one to start next week for Brady.

100% take Tolbert over Jacobs. Remember Matthews is fragile and even with him taking most of the carries Tolbert still gets some goal line and catches tons of passes. Also the Chargers offence always starts slow so they should heat up soon.

Help me??? viewtopic.php?f=18&t=503873

Wow I wouldn't even worry about Tolbert with Battle available. Make the move for Schaub.

Alright, I just dropped Jacobs and picked up Schaub, who will actually start for me next week. Tolbert was on waivers until Monday anyways.
