I have had no RB2 this year and have been using WR or TE for Flex all year.

I have saved my position for WW all year and I am at #2 in a 14 team league. Do you think I should use it now or just wait until Wed morning and grab a return guy for my week 6 fill in.

RB on the wire tonight: Alex Green, James Starks, William Powell, Howling, David Wilson, Toby Gerhart, Redman, Kuhn, Ball

14 team 1-QB, 2-RB, 2-WR, 1-TE, Flex-RB,WR,TE, 1-D, 1-K

QB: Matt Ryan, Josh Freeman

RB: A. Foster, J. Stew, Brandon Jacobs

WR: Julio, Dez, R. Wayne, Cobb, Boldin

TE: J.Witten, K. Rudolph

1-10 WR/RB/TE, 1-25 pass, 1-20 Return yrds, 6-TD all, 0.5 PPR

I dropped David Wilson and Mark Ingram this yr and pu Boldin and Jacobs. The rest of the team is what I drafted.

Would you use my #2 slot or save it? If you would use, who should I go for and drop Jacobs.

I don't see a ww pickup that justifies spending a ww 2 position. None of the guys listed are going to light it up. I would take my chances on what is left in FA after the ww process.

Hi David,



I'm just curious, are you under the impression that everyone on this site is blessed with the ability to see who may be available on your waiver wire?:) It would probably help a great deal to list the top 3 to 5 RBs available in your league.



Cheers,



Steve

My bad! I see the FA list....so sorry! Don't pick up any of those stiffs as they will end up as waiver wire fodder.

It is in the post I wrote Steve? Maybe it was blocked on your end?

As desperate as your rb situation is, I might actually think about Starks, but it's still not great. I probably get Starks and then try to package him with boldileshoure better rb

Ok I just check back in and see most lean towards not making any pick ups. David Wilson is still on the FA list. I could use my pick for him or take my chances and check in the AM to see who is out there for my week six fill in? Ten return man has done ok this year and we get return yards.

I PU Green on the WW and then Grant via the FA in the AM. I feel this at least gives me some RB support as I realy had almost nothing. Who knows, I may drop them both after week 8.
