FA RB's:
Earnest Graham vs CHI
Jackie Battle @ OAK
DeMarco Murray vs STL

My starters this week:
QB: Matt Schaub
RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Ryan Matthews
WR: Dwayne Bowe
WR: Miles Austin
TE: Jermichael Finley
WR: Marques Colston
K: John Kasay
DEF: Houston

Bench:
QB Tom Brady (Bye)
RB Frank Gore (Bye)
RB Felix Jones (Out)
RB Shonn Greene
WR Vincent Jackson
WR Anquan Boldin


Pretty shallow league. Still, I will keep Jones, especially since you don't need him short term.

Help me. viewtopic.php?t=505099

You dont really need Felix with your depth at RB.. with AP, Mathews, Gore and Greene... that leaves little room for anyone else to ever see playing time on your roster at RB. So if you wanna drop him for one of those RB's I would definitely say Battle. He will get the load all year and I think he will be a solid backup RB for your team just in case you get plagued with some injuries or whatever. You can also use that depth to improve other parts of your team.

Little help?

I would take battle of the options available, both Murray and Graham are temp backs.

Thanks for your help. You are pretty deep at RB, so not a huge need. Can you stash Jones on the IR, if not, who will you drop? If picking 1 of those 3, definately Battle as the other 2 are injury fill-ins and likely to lose their starter status in coming weeks.

I could keep Jones on the roster, but it sounds like he'll be out at least 3-4 weeks, and that seems like a waste of a roster spot given my RB depth. Next week, I'll need a TE for Finley's bye, but I'm not worried about that yet. I'll drop Jones and pick up Battle. Thanks guys!

253 yards rushing, 1 TD for Murray. God damnit. I kept Torain (who had NEGATIVE points) over Murray who has 31+ points.. i want to break something.

Yup, that sucks. Fantasy can be the worst thing ever sometimes. I just didnt see the Cowboys being able to run all of the sudden. Either the Rams are way terrible, or Murray is the real deal. Either way, sucks nobody saw it coming...
