At the moment you're definitely week at RB, as MJD is such a huge question mark at this time. I wouldn't feel very comfortable having to roll with Bush or Spiller in my RB2 spot every week, and Charles might get you yards but is likely to be pretty low in TD numbers this year. No chance of you trading Bush or Spiller to get Jennings until MJD is back 100%?

You are stuck at RB. You need to get Jennings somehow or pick up another back. Even if you have to go for a lower tier starter like Cedric Benson or DeAngelo Williams they can only help your roster until MJD comes back.

At this point no telling how far away he is from making his comeback, so you'll need to fill that hole ASAP. I'd drop Spiller.

I don't understand. I thought MJD was playing?

Maurice Jones Drew is a contract holdout with no end in sight. He isn't in camp because he wants a bigger contract, and the team won't give it to him, nor will they trade him. Current projections have him not coming back until well into the season.

You need Rashad Jennings (his backup) or another starting RB you can start in his place until he returns later in the year.

You definitely need help at RB (like the others said)....need to try and get R.Jennings at all cost!

It would also be wise to try and get another RB while your at it (like a C.Benson, D.Brown, B.Wells, etc....)...someone further down the boards that won't cost you much as you have no bench either! (CJ Spiller and M.Bush are just handcuffs and are not real viable options)

I would try and trade Spiller and/or Bush for Jennings) and also try DHB/Young (DHB preferably as I value Young more) for a RB3.

Good Luck m8!!!!
