Help! Just drafted Le'Veon Bell as my RB3. Who do I drop?

Postby liono123 » Mon Aug 19, 2013 11:50 pm

Just finished my first money league snake draft. 12 team PPR. Deep rosters.

My Starters:

QB: Stafford
RB: CJ Spiller, Lamar Miller
RB/WR FLEX: Le'Veon Bell
WR: Dez Bryant, Larry Fitzgerald
WR/TE FLEX: Greg Olsen
TE: Vernon Davis
DST: Ravens
K: Hartley

Backups: Ben Tate, Kenny Britt, Pierre Thomas, Johnathan Franklin, Jonathan Stewart, Zach Sudfeld, Andy Dalton

I figure I need to put in a waiver claim for Dwyer or Redman. Waivers open up on the 21st, but since I picked 9th, I probably have a high priority. What do you recommend I do?

Only notable (lol) free agent RBs are Knowshon Moreno, Joique Bell, Dwyer and Redman, and Daniel Thomas.
12 Team $ (PPR + Return Yardage):
    QB: Tom Brady, Andy Dalton
    RB: Charles, Lynch, Martin, Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, Rashad jennings, Joe McKnight, Leon Washington
    WR/TE: Antonio Brown, Brandon Lloyd, Randall Cobb, Ted Ginn
    K: Bryant
    DST: Bills

I'm a hardcore Steelers fan, and I will tell you that they are going to use all 3 backs a lot. Bell is the better player, and the Steelers REALLY REALLY REALLY want a 3down back, which Bell can be.

Looking at your roster, I wouldn't drop anyone. Just sit tight the rest of the preseason and watch Arian Foster news religiously. If he's out week 1, Tate is a solid #1 RB start. If he's not, you can still play Britt at the flex. Or Thomas, who I think is good for 20-40 yds and a TD.

Don't freak out yet, wait for the news about Bell. Trust me, the Steelers want him to start over Dwyer/redman.

Thanks for the response. That's very reassuring. Do you think I drafted well out of the #9 slot?

Seriously considering dropping Franklin for Daniel Thomas as backup to Lamar Miller or possibly Joique Bell.
