RB handcuffs

Postby deltaboy » Sun Aug 26, 2012 11:45 pm

I drafted Mendenhall at the end of my draft after a few too many and will be dropping him. Reviewing my draft, I am thin at RB and want to add another with only handcuffs and weaker. Who should I snag?

Thomas
Scott
Tolbert
Jacobs
Goodson
Dwyer
Rodgers
Hunter
Pead

I say go with Hunter. He has looked great this preseason. He is the undisputed backup there. Only other 'cuffs that have a case like his would be DMC's or MJD's. Jennings is not on this list, and word is that Jones will be the backup in Oakland, not Goodson. So I pick Hunter, but he isn't startin until (not if) Gore goes down. Once he does, he is a great starter.

If you plan on just add/dropping to pick up whomever will be the starting WAS rb for the week, I don't think it will be Royster week 1. Not sure who it will be, just don't think it will be him. If you can figure out who it will be, then just start that guy then pick up the next guy, do that. I've seen guys play that game.

and is this DuJuan Harris of JAX? Cuz he just got cut.

Unless Royster is announced starting RB, I still like Hunter. Gore will go down at some point.

Alfred the Butler Morris will be the starter for WAS week 1.

As for the FA pick up, I also agree with Hunter. He is leagues better than those on your current WW and IMO the best runner on SF. He's already carved out a role for himself that will only increase as the year progresses.

Every year at some time I have Hunter riding my bench and never used him. I guess that's why I never lightened up to him. I thinking looking for more of a home run depth guy bc I fear my RB depth is thin.
