Mcgahee vs Battle (or both & drop Best)

Postby MillerTime723 » Fri Oct 21, 2011 2:00 pm

10 team non-ppr ESPN league, can only have 4 RBs on roster & start 2 w/no flex

Currently have:

Forte
Mathews
Best
McGahee

Battle is available as FA. For the long term, is McGahee (issues: age & Tebow) better than Battle (issues: potential flash in the pan & he plays for the Chiefs)?

Also, given Best's injury history, would it be better to keep both and drop Best? Battle will probably be gone before Best's status is clarified so wait & see is probably not an option.

Thanks for all advice.

I would either hang on to Best, or offer a trade and see what you can get for him. I only see Battle as someone you would start once or twice from this point forward.

As of right now I would rank them ....

McGahee
Best
Battle

However Battle is only last cause we have only seen one week. McGahee is easily the best option out of the three, and is only going to get better with Tebow. Best is the most talented but we all know there is the risk he misses SERIOUS time this year, could be the whole damn thing.

If I had a chance to get Battle for Best I am not saying I would have the stones to do it, but it might not be a bad idea. I would wait if I was you, you have 3 very solid options at RB, and can wait to see what happens with Best.

Remember though, if you want Battle better do it now cause if he has even an average game, someone will pick his a$$ up.
