Blount is 10 times as valuable if the Bucs have a lead which they should have more next year.
Helu is in Shanny's offensive so you never know there.
McGahee is old and Moreno will be healthy again.
Interesting dilema now. In my mind, keeping Peyton with my third round selection seems a lot better than Helu in 8th or Blount in 15th. But then that leaves me no RB's to start and drafting 6th in a 12 man league. I could probably get a decent RB1 but then for RB2 or flex I would be pretty screwed, not much left at 19 after all the keepers, especially for RBs.

Right now I guess I would have to keep Blount.

If Wash takes RG3 I think it really hurts Helu, and if TB takes Richardson would hurt Blount....I think you really have to wait until after the draft if you can......see where guys fall.

For me Manning is not an option.....either way you need the best RB on the board @6......at best these guys are Rb#2's, probably flex players.....so still have alot of work to do!!

Good Luck!!

This is they way I am leaning. TB seems to find a new back every year, I can't remember the last time a TB RB had 2 good seasons in a row, I should have traded him before last year when he had value.

McGahee will return to RBBC at best with a healthy Moreno to start the season, but I would love to draft him in the late rounds like I did last year.

If BJGE wasn't costing you a 3rd round pick I was say take him for sure, otherwise I would go with Blount.

I would love to suggest Helu, espically if its a PPR league but who ever knows whats going on with the Redskins.

Now it is post-draft and things look a little differently. Helu looks like my best option now with Blount good for goalline carries and maybe to ice some games. I would love to have Doug Martin with a late round pick. We have to name keepers after 2 preseason games and then draft after the third "exhibition" game so things could change but unless Martin gets hurt he will take enough away from Blount to make it an easy choice for me, don't you think?

I think the post draft fall out for Blount makes Helu the obvious choice to me.

Draft is tomorrow night I think I chose wisely in keeping Mcgahee last week even though no one on here mentioned him. Should be a solid RB2, especially with John Fox as HC.

Now my dilema is at 1.6 do I go RB1 or Brees or Brady if they are there. Of the 5 teams picking before me 4 of them kept a QB so 1 of those 2 should be there.

A lot can and has changed since the last post in this thread.

Who you go with depends on your scoring and which RBs are being kept. It's hard to say without knowing.
