Who is the better RB?

Postby hess8228 » Mon Sep 03, 2012 12:53 pm

Trade offered to me this morning:
I get: Reggie Bush, Cedric Benson, Fred Davis
He takes: Frank Gore, Devone Bess

Who do you like better out of the three backs in a flex spot.. GORE, BENSON, or BUSH?

This is my roster currently.

QB- B. Rothliesberger
RB- M. Forte
RB- C. Johnson
WR- Damarius Thomas
WR- Stevie Johnson
TE- Health Miller
W/R- Frank Gore

BN- taiwan Jones
BN- Benard Scott
BN- Devone Bess
BN- Brandon Lafell
BN- Brian Quick
BN- Alex Smith

Not alot or RB depth after my top 3. adding Bush and Benson will put one in the flex and one on the bench allowing me to play matchups, fill in on other guys bye weeks, and injury backup. obviously fred davis is an upgrade at TE.Bush/Benson may make my starters weaker ,however, depending on what Gore does. should i get rid of Gore for Bush/Benson?

Do it. You upgrade at tight end too.

I would make the trade based on the upgrade you get at TE. I would also look to drop Alex Smith for a running back. You will only use Smith one week this season.

the trade adds depth for you at RB, and improves your TE position, so yeah, go for it!

Trade accepted. Only thing with dropping Alex smith (as previous poster suggested, is that there are absolutely no starting QB's to add). 16 team league. some teams rolling with 3 QB's on roster so for now I have to hang onto smith

and I'd keep him. Not sure Ben will be able to stay healthy all season.
