Pick up DHB and dump NE RB Brandon Bolden?

Postby 42durham » Thu Oct 25, 2012 7:58 am

Situation:

I will need a WR for next week. I currently have Welker, Cobb, and Brandon Gibson. Next week Welker and Gibson are on a bye.

Darious Heyward Bay plays TB at home next week who have a bad D, and it will likely be a high scoring game. I currently have Ridley, Bolden, and Vereen, but I am afraid to dump Bolden for fear he will be the hand cuff again for Ridley when he comes back from his knee injury.

I am 5-2, so if I wait until after this weekend to dump Gibson to pick up DHB, and he blows up against KC, I won't get him from waivers because of my waiver position.

Or I can just hold on to Bolden, and get the best WR available if DHB gets grabbed off waivers. Here are the other WRs I could get if I do that and there week 9 match ups:

LaFell WR CAR@ WASH
Hankerson WR WASH vs CAR
Ryan Broyles WR DET@JAX

Thanks.

The New England backfield is just too crowded, i think. Bolden may have distanced himself from Vereen, but he's still god Woodhead and Ridley grabbing most of the carries. And that's all in a pass-first offense too. Basically, Bolden competes with Welker, Gronk, Lloyd, Edelman, Ridley, Woodhead and Vereen for touches. Not much pie left for him in my opinion.

DHB's upside is huge. I have a similar situation. Help me out?

I'd drop Bolden for DHB as well...he may still be there after you use DHB next week.

Please help:

Drop Vereen. When Bolden comes back he will get carries - looked great this year. DHB has good potential. Hankerson is also a good pickup.
