Need RB Help...

Postby jlohalo » Thu Oct 04, 2012 8:04 pm

My RB's are mediocre and I have been offered:

DeMarco Murray and Josh Freeman
for
BJGE and Ryan Fitzpatrick

Should I do it? I like the idea of having a two RB rotating combination of T Richardson/S Ridley/D Murray, but Fitz is a great back up QB...much better than Freeman IMO. Help please!

In an 8-teamer I'd go with the better back to immediately help out your team and add weekly points. Backup QBs will be there and can be had if you need them later on.
Standard Scoring, 8 Team PPR

QB- BREES, Romo
RB- MARTIN, RICE, Sproles, Murray, A.Morris
WR-D.THOMAS, BRYANT, Maclin, S.Smith
TE- GRAHAM, Hernandez
K- TUCKER
DEF- BENGALS, Giants

Mathews for my Ridley/Redman
Rice for my Mathews/Wallace

Is it a 2 QB league? Are you required to roster 4 QB's? If neither of these are the case, I say you do it immediately. You don't need Freeman (or Fitzpatrick and Ponder for that matter) if you have Rodgers and Ryan.

Thanks for the help guys.

Yes, it is a 2QB league. We have to have a minimum of 4 QB's, 4 RB's, 7 WR's, 2 TE's, 2 K's and 2 DEF on our roster. That leaves an extra position to draft/pick up one more player. We basically start 11 and draft duplicates at all positions. Doing so promotes trades and leaves few impact players out on the waiver wire.

Anyone else?
