Drop Felix Jones, pick up Tolbert/Battle/Murray/Jacobs? WHIR

Postby SEAfense71 » Mon Oct 17, 2011 10:16 pm

10 team league, standard scoring. I've read Felix has a high ankle sprain, and that he will likely miss a few weeks at a minimum. I can't imagine keeping him on my roster when I already have 4 superior RB options. Do I pick up Mike Tolbert as a handcuff? Brandon Jacobs? Earnest Graham? Murray? Ben Tate? Battle in KC? Or another Defense, like NYG? I'll need a TE in week 8 for Finley's bye. Ballard? Leave a link, WHIR 100%.

Here's my projected starting roster going into Week 7:
QB: Matt Schaub
RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Ryan Matthews
WR: Dwayne Bowe
WR: Vincent Jackson
TE: Jermichael Finley
WR/RB: Miles Austin
K: John Kasay
DEF: CIN (Pending waiver claim for HOU)

BEN:
QB Tom Brady (BYE)
RB Frank Gore (BYE)
RB Shonn Greene
RB Felix Jones (OUT)
WR Anquan Boldin
WR Marques Colston

Like you said, you're stacked at RB. Neither of those guys you can pick up will have more value than Felix Jones when he comes back, and you won't be playing any of those guys you'd pick up. Keep him and trade him when you can.

I agree. I have Jacobs in one of my leagues and I usually start him because the Giants usually hand him the ball (when they don't turn it over!) in the red zone. But I agree with SacKing.
