Embarrassingly bad RB options. help?

Postby mzkp54 » Thu Nov 15, 2012 5:49 am

OK this is the worst bye week/injury situation I've ever run into. It's a dynasty league, and there is no one available to pick up that is a good option. I need to start one out of the following:

Blount
Ogbonnaya
W Powell
Leach
Kuhn

That is including the best available FA. I just want to know who do you think is the most likely to even touch the ball a few times?

In the last two games Blount got 3 touches.

Powell has seen the ball once in the last two games.

As you know, Leach's true role is truly a lead blocker for Rice. He has had seven touches al year.

Kuhn did reach the end zone a couple times this year, but that was weeks ago. He hasn't seen a target or touch since week 7. There are also reports he pulled a hami recently.

The only real action Ogbonnaya got all year was when Trent got hurt and left the game. His jersey's been clean since week 8.

I guess Blount is the guy. Just hope Martin rips a long run and has to come out for a couple plays out of sheer exhaustion. The other four almost don't even exist. Tough spot, man. Sorry. Good luck.

Wow. I thought I had trouble this week. I mean, wow. Is there really nothing clever in FA? Even Bernard Pierce might get you more points. Is Lamar Miller available (I guess not)?

I agree, Blount is probably your least worst option - at least he'll probably get a touch or two. Leach might get thrown the ball a couple of times against the Steelers D I suppose. Don't touch Ogbonnaya (I say this as a Browns fan). Best of luck though.

Any chance you could help me out too? viewtopic.php?f=19&t=529749
