Bilal Powell worth dropping Marques Colston for?

Postby luckycow515 » Tue Sep 25, 2012 6:48 pm

My league is a standard Keeper league
we play:
2 QB
4WR
3RB
1 TE
1K
1D
5BN

My roster is:
QB: Matt Ryan
QB: Tony Romo
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Steve Smith
WR: Pierre Garcon
WR: Torrey Smith
RB: Ryan Matthews
RB: Ahmad Bradshaw
RB: Steven Jackson
TE: Vernon Davis
K: Matt Prater
D: BAL
BN: Josh Freeman
BN: Marques Colston
BN : Andre Brown
BN: Donald Brown
BN Mike Williams


Marques Colston has been pretty awful this year, and i like the idea of maybe snagging a starting rb (Powell) that might be good long term, That would leave me with just williams for WR on my bench. Is this worth doing? Is there someone else i should drop for Powell? or is Powell not worth touching at all?

no! Colston has been dealing with Plantar Fasciitis, which apparently has gotten a lot better. He will be practicing this week and with how bad the Saints Defense is, the Offense will HAVE to keep throwing. Colston is a great target and has litterally been inches from 2 scores this year and dropped a third last week. You could tell that his foot has bothered him, but he seems to be over that now. Powell is fine, but I would sooner drop Mike Williams then Colston if you felt the need to pick up Powell. I think Powell does have some value, but I think they want to start giving him a few more opportunities before making him the starter. I think they see that Greene is not the solution and that Powell is the better back though.

help with mine?

Is anyone on my team worth dropping for Powell, for some reason I see a lot of upside to Powell. I was thinking of maybe dropping Williams or garçon for him.

That leaves me with no back up QB though, my league plays 2 QB. I guess i could just find a back up on the waivers when bye weeks come.
