So, yeah, sorry for the bad pun, but I really need some help here. My team has been great thus far, standing at 4-2; minus some bad luck matchups I could easily be 6-0. Obviously, I couldn't be happier with such a result, but now I'm pretty worried about my team with the recent news about Jahvid Best. Please help me replace him both in the short-term (I need a Flex starter for this week) and in the long-term, since I only have 2 RB that I'm comfortable starting. This week is looking tough for me since I have a ton of players on their bye weeks, so I'm not opposed to picking up and starting a player that makes more sense for me in the longer-term, or not starting one at all.
Who should I pick up for my empty bench spot?
Right now I'm between Damian Williams and Heyward-Bey for a this-week starter. Both present longer-term value, but I'm pretty stacked at WR. If I'm looking ahead, Keiland Williams would be nice to handcuff to Morris and Best, Bradford might be a better bet some weeks than I have now, and RB options like Carter, Thomas, Grant, and Choice could provide the depth I desperately need.
QB: Bradford, Alex Smith, Painter, Ponder, Moore, Beck
RB: Delone Carter, Keiland Williams, Pierre Thomas, Ryan Grant, Choice, Ricky Williams, Lex Hilliard, Marion Barber, Bernard Scott
WR: Damian Williams, Heyward-Bey, Massaquoi, Doucet, Titus Young, Kerley, Randall Cobb, Benn, Brandon Gibson, Salas, Sanzenbacher
TE: Jared Cook, Marcedes Lewis, Ballard, Shockey
D/ST: Browns, Broncos, Titans, Bills, Patriots
My Team (with this weeks starter):
QB - Fitzpatrick (Matt Ryan)
RB1 - McCoy (Graham)
RB2 - Bradshaw (Maurice Morris)
FLX - Best (EMPTY)
WR1 - Megatron
WR2 - Hakeem Nicks (Greg Little)
WR3 - Dwayne Bowe
IDP: Jared Allen
Other bench than listed above:
Brandon Jacobs, Julio Jones
