Who to drop for a WW RB?

Postby mixreveal » Wed Oct 26, 2011 3:56 pm

With Wells, FJones, and Mcgahee all out this week I'm looking at picking up Hardesty for a fill in, but don't know who to drop. Hardesty is the only one on waivers with a hope of starting this week.

QB: Fitzpatrick, Flacco
RB: Foster, Wells, Mcgahee,FJones
WR: Calvin Johnson, Stevie Johnson, AJ Green, Julio Jones, Pierre Garcon
TE: Gonzalez, Hernandez
K: Hanson
DEF: Dallas

I'd drop McGahee, he has limited upside ROS with his injury and the emergence of Tebow.

Drop Flacco...you won't be starting him unless Fitz gets hurt. So get rid of the dead weight

Tough to choose out of that list. If you really need a RB, I'd say drop Flacco since you already have Fitzpatrick, but it's still tough. But just in case you haven't seen it, Pat Shurmur says that Hillis will most likely be the starter this week, so Hardesty may not be a good option...

The only other option, who I thought was already on a roster, is Roy Helu. So is Helu a better pickup than Hardesty with the news that Hillis will probably start?

Well Torain will likely start, but he'll share carries with Helu, and you never know what Shanahan is going to do with his backfield. Who are the other free agent RBs? If Helu is the next best thing available after Hardesty, then he might be worth a shot.

Yep, you're right on this one. Like you said, nothing else really out there. I'd go with Helu. He may not get much, but he'll get more than Hardesty in my opinion.
