Topic: Need RB Long Shot

I'm in a 14 team league, each team having 17 roster spots. My team is doing fine (2-1) on the backs of RG3, M. Wallace, and more recently Megatron, but I'm going to need RB help to make it all the way. There are not a lot of options available with 14 teams having 4-5 runningbacks each.

No one in the league will trade with me...I won the league 3 years in a row a few years back and I think they are still bitter. So, I'm going to have to get lucky on the waiver wire.

My current RBs: Shon Green, Ahmad Bradshaw, Chris Rainey, Toby Gerhart, and Chris Ogbonnaya

I have a roster spot that I don't mind using for a longshot. Anyone want to recommend a RB that might jump out in weeks 8 or 9 for an incredibly deep league?

I would get Williams. At least he will start. Ryan came out today and said Greene is his starting RB.

You can tell Ryan is lying when his mouth moves. Starting and getting touches is different. Ryan isn't stupid, well at least I didn't think he was, so when one back takes 2x the carries to get the same yardage, which back is going to get increased carries.

Jonathan Grimes, NYJ RB. He was signed by HOU as a FA this year, but not kept as the Texans were deep with RBs. Had 28 carries for 130 yards in the preseason, averaged 4.6 YPC.

With Greene still failing to impress and not being completely sold on Powell, Grimes might get a chance in the Jets backfield later this season.

I would check on the following people. D Richardson - its only a matter of time before Jackson gets dinged up and he looked so far when he gets carries. Jackie Battle - who knows what will happen with Matthews, although I like Matthews Battle could be lightning in a bottle if something happes in SD. Mendenhall I assume is already on someone's team. I expect Mendenhall back this week to quickly assume the starting role for the Steelers. If someone dropped Hillis who is hurt, he should be back and getting some carries by weeks 8-9. If Hunter is available from SF he seems to be getting carries there, in week 8 they play AZ, but 9 he is off.

You may want to add Goodson - SF RB to the mix in case McFadden gets injured.
