How long do you think I should hold onto Hightower before I dump him then? Was leaning towards dropping Bush, but was considering Hightower also.

I would drop Bush as well. Technically, Hightower is still the starter because he is a solid blocker and Shanny likes that in his RBs. Really though, who knows who gets the rock, but I suspect that we will see more Hightower as long as he is healthy.

Thanks for the feedback. I've still been holding on to Hightower for those reasons, I don't feel his season is over just yet. I'm about to drop Bush for Murray. Anybody else have any opinions?

Patriots Def would be easiest for me to drop... It will give you another week to checkout how where HighTower etc. stand

So are you against dropping Bush, or do you just think it would be better to drop a defense? (I don't know why I'm carrying 2 defenses on my roster to begin with)

Bump....

I just dropped Patriots D/ST for DeMarco Murray, AND I'm starting Murray in place of Michael Bush. Smart move or not? The 49ers and Bengals defense are gone, but someone just dropped the Texans D/ST and I plan on picking them up next week when the Jets are on BYE. What do you guys think?

I think you did the right move. No reason to have 2 DST..

I am not sure Murray is worth dropping any of them for. He has done 0. I dropped Hightower a few weeks ago. The Pats D was horrible until they played Dallas. Murray does have more potential so if you think he can help you, drop Bush.
