Should I add Bilal Powell for one of these three RB's?

Postby TheGhost » Wed Sep 26, 2012 9:38 am

12 teams, PPR, redraft.

My league starts three RB's and I have handcuffs for each one. I have Tate backing up Arian, I have Jennings backing up MJD and I have Blount backing up Martin in Tampa. Should I stick with this strategy or should I add Powell and drop one of my handcuffs. Thanks in advance. Cheers! ;-D

I like your handcuffs... I would stick with them. this way if a stud goes out u still have a starter... i know its boring but i like security

I don't know how useful Jennings or Blount will be unless there is an injury to their counterparts.

Personally, I might drop both but faced with a choice would hold onto Jennings because I feel his value is higher in a PPR league and MJD is a guy I worry won't stay healthy much longer.

I would suggest adding Powell for Blount but don't expect any immediate impact.

i would keep Tate and drop other two handcuffs. no question. 3 RB league you need to gobble up all the guys getting carries you can. why let another guy take a Powell or similiar guy who is moving into time share, and possible becomes fantasy relevant?

You have to remember why you handcuff. Your three guys are all starters and if one goes down I think Take and Jennings will fill in admirably. Blount may but unsure. If you think that Powell is better than any of the back ups (once one of your starters goes down, making them a starter) Then I would drop one for Powell. If you do not I would stay put. I personally may drop Blount for him and see him as a starter as a bit less than Powell's value

thanks for help with mine

Without knowing the rest of your roster or how many players you can have, it's difficult to give an exact answer.

If you have to start three RB each week and what you listed is all you have, you will run into bye week issues with only backups on the bench. If this is the case, I'd look to pick up a starter of some sort to help fill the gap for weeks 5,6, and 8.

If you have a bye week plan, I'd stick with what you have.

Also, I'd stay away from any Jets players unless you have an empty spot and get them for next to nothing.
