Rank these RB's please

Postby Chibears » Thu Jul 26, 2012 9:51 pm

Hey guys and gals,

Another post here brought up a possible issue I have that I thought I was good with but maybe not?

Non PPR league, point for 10 yards rush, 6 for TD.

6 team league...incredibly stacked rosters but maybe can be better?

My RB's......

Arian Foster - #1
Ryan Mathews - Hearing nothing but good things.
Trent Richardson - Hearing 300+ carries
Mikel Leshoure - REALLY wanted to get in on that Detroit offense.
Stevan Ridley - Addai now gone, hearing Ridley, if he gets by Vereen, is in line for 12+ TD and 1000 yards.

Some available on waiver wire....

Beanie Wells - Injury risk?
Michael Bush - Second fiddle again with Forte signed.
Doug Martin - Thinking I might drop Ridley for this guy but in timeshare with Blount?
Toby Gerhart - Leaning away from this as I think AP will be back sooner than later.
BJGE - I want more than 65 yards and .33 TD's a game.
Either Panther RB - Too many bodies with only one ball.
Ben Tate - Believe in handcuff if handcuff is better than my worst backup.
James Starks - Starting RB for the PACKERS! Not enough opportunities though?
Peyton Hillis - Change of scenery all he needed? Is Charles good to go?
Isaac Redman - Mendenhall prolly on PUP...can he hold him off all year?
Ryan Williams - Beanie hurt. Heard he runs like Lynch.

Would you drop Ridley for any of these guys?

Thanks ahead of time! :)

I would drop him and grab Martin. If you want to take a risk reward player maybe Ryan Williams. I love the way the kid runs and was targeting him last year. I really haven't heard anything about how well he is recovering so that would be something to look into before you make a move.

+1 for dropping Ridley for Martin.

As far as grabbing any other players, I wouldn't at this point. I think you're better off waiting for Beanie Wells to get hurt and hoping for a high waiver claim the week it happens than ditching anyone you have now. The upside in Leshoure's situation is better in my mind than either of the Cardinals backs.

I would drop Ridley for a lot of these guys. LOL. I don't like N.E. RBs for obvious reasons. Who's to say Vereen won't be getting the lion's share of the carries? Just like in Washington. Same premise. Committee by coin flip. Avoid it.

Redman. BJGE. Martin. YOU CAN'T FAIL! Redman is going to be the man. I just can't say if Dwyer and Rainey will be incorporated. PITT likes to do that as per the Mendy-Redman-Moore three headed monster from last year.

Law Firm will be the head man in charge. Scott can't take the job. He fumbles. Nuff said. Ellis will be goal lining it all year long for sure.

Martin won't be in a time share with Blount. Martin is the defacto starter and the only one that can change that is him. IF he fumbles and can scratch more than 3 yards or more a carry, you will see Blount again. Any one of these guys in their situations are better than Ridley. Go for it!

I say Martin. By seeing your other post I can see that you have picked him up. Good job

You can't go wrong with that. It astounds me that people think Ridley is guaranteed. NE and WAS are notorious with the RBBC. You can't ride your fantasy team with that kind of uncertainty.

I think Williams is decent but he's a good reserve as long as Beanie is healthy. I know the Cards have a penchant for playing multiple backs (almost in the vein of Pittsburgh with Mendy-Redman-Moore) like Wells-Williams-Howling. I doubt anything will be any different. I am pretty sure BJGE will get more play than Williams or Leshoure this year because of how Cincy is running their offense. Leshoure will have to battle with Best and Smith and even to a lesser degree, Keiland Williams. The Law Firm has all the chances in the world to be the #1 guy. Scott had a golden opportunity to take that spot but he FUMBLED the opportunity.

Williams is the future no doubt but Law Firm is the "right now".
