Trouble at RB and Question on QB

Postby Seminole » Tue Sep 10, 2002 8:45 pm

This is my first year in FF and I'm having so much fun, but I am not thrilled with my running backs.

William Green
Corey Dillon
Travis Henry
Kevan Barlow

Green and Dillon tanked for a big "0" the first week while Henry went crazy. I'm thinking Dillon and Henry this week...Any Thoughts?

Also, looking for a few ideas on a RB trade.


Have Gannon and Bledsoe. Should I trade Bledsoe for Mathews?

Thanks for your suggestions

green is basically junk right now. duckett and foster are better bets for greatness. i'd drop green and pick up jamel white if i were you.

I would start Dillon and Henry on a consistant basis. Wait on Green. See if he develops in to his hype. I would hold onto your QB's as well, as there no reason to trade to a "maybe" quaterback.

What does your WR situation look like??

Look for a trade down the road if Henry or Dillon doesn't pan out for ya.

bledsoe for matthews is a risky trade but since you have either gannon or bledsoe as your primary QB you can take a chance. I'd trade for matthews right now cuz if the other owner has luck with matthews he wont trade him for bledsoe no gannon straight up.

if i were you i'd trade gannon instead of bledsoe. gannon is an old arm and the raiders vowed to go at the running game more often this year so gannon is inline for a decline. try to package gannon and one of your running backs for an upgrade at RB cuz you gonna need it. if anybody wants william green, send him. he's already hurting and he wont be able to do much this year. if you're stuck with green you might wanna use dillon as a trade bait, try to package gannon and dillon for someone like shaun alexander or ahman green.

good luck

I wouldn't worry about your RB sitation yet. It is week one. Dillon is a solid fantasy RB. Henry will have a breakout year. Barlow is ready to share 100 yard games with Hearst. You might want to get Jamel White to backup William Green.

I wouldn't trade Bledsoe for Matthews. Bledsoe is ready to kick some AFC East ass.
