Pick up Tolbert/Turbin?

Postby hwell44 » Wed Sep 05, 2012 10:36 am

Had an auction draft (12 teams, start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 W/R/T) last night, tried to play it patient hoping to get a few bargains. Here is my squad:

QB: Newton, Roethlisberger
RB: Lynch, Green-Ellis, R. Jennings, M. Bush, K. Hunter
WR: AJ Green, D. Bryant, Decker, D. Moore
TE: Gates

Needless to say, I am a little (read: a lot :~( ) concerned with my running backs here. I have a couple handcuffs in Bush and Hunter (and soon to be Jennings)... would it be worth dropping any of the three to pick up Dwyer, who is pushing to start in PIT, or Turbin?

Any advice is greatly appreciated, WHIR. Thanks!


EDIT: Dwyer no longer available, Tolbert?

BUMP: Scratch that, Dwyer no longer available.

Tolbert is another possibility. Or should I consider trading a WR for a RB?

This is a real toss up here. Hunter has had a fantastic pre season and some are predicting that he could be the guy if Gore regresses or goes down. However, there are a few options in SF.

Turbin looks like he could get some work this week so he is worth the pickup, but it is really a matter of feel here.

I would be tempted to drop Jennings for Turbin because Mojo is back.

Stay away from Tolbert.

I totally agree. I think Jennings has short term value if any. MJD back in the mix he will have a full work load by week 3. Turbin is tempting, so I would go ahead and feel comfortable dropping Jennings for him. With beast mode heading towards bench mode, I think it could be a much better short term play than Jennings.
