That's  bad scene to get the 2nd man in a pair of rotations as your #2 guy and all 3 of your #2's are that guy. You might want to look for a touchdown vulture to plug in there - Mike Bell as was mentioned will likely be the guy who falls into the end zone if the Saints get close. In most leagues that 1 yard and 1 TD is worth more than 50 yards rushing.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Thanks. I realized the auto draft gave me two defenses (Pittsburgh and Indy), so I dumped Indy and picked up Ricky Williams. I'm starting him as my #2 this week since Miami plays what looks to be an extremely soft Falcons defense. I'll probably be playing roulette every week between Ricky, Jones, and McCoy.

Think you'll be ok with Jones he'll get touches(more than 5) maybe 12-15 a game. Keep McCoy if possible cut your back up TE or D and pick up Ricky if your not comfty with your rb situation.

I'm playing fantasy football for the first time this year. I did an auto draft with my own rankings and am overall pleased with my team, however I'm concerned over how to handle my running back depth. I ended up with Frank Gore as my #1 back, which I'm fine with, but Felix Jones as my #2 and LeSean McCoy as my #3. I'm concerned that Jones' backfield is too crowded and he'll only get 5 or so carries per game. I like McCoy a lot for later in the season when Westbrook gets hurt, but am not sure how much work he will get early plus you never know how much Vick will take his touches. My waiver wire consists of guys like Sammy Morris, Ricky Williams, Justin Fargas, Jamaal Charles, and Tashard Choice. So my options as I see them are:

1. Keep things the way they are with Gore, Jones, and McCoy in that order.

2. Go Gore, McCoy, and then Jones.

3. Dump Jones for a waiver wire guy.

4. Dump McCoy for a waiver wire guy.

Thanks.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

You need Rbs. You can't rely on Jones and Mccoy as your twos. Two backups is never good to have.

Jones will shine this year (assuming he stay's healthy.)

So, yeah, Ricky Williams ended up being the correct play today. Atlanta's defense was much better than expected, but he still caught a receiving touchdown during garbage time.

Mike Bell?
He did not appear to be available for me. He had some decent yards rushing yesterday but no touchdowns, so I didn't miss much.

143 yards is still 14 points in most leagues......

I got 11.8 points with Ricky Williams so not much lost. I'm debating between claiming Michael Bush and Carnell Williams now.

thats a tuff one. I think Bush will be a beast around the goal line.

Fred Jackson in the late rounds. 21 points last night. Put up 123 with Andre, Royal, and Mason combining for about 14

OK so Gore is going to miss a couple weeks now. My other backs are Felix Jones, LeSean McCoy, Ricky Williams, and Michael Bush. My best waiver wire options are Le'Ron McClain, Tashard Choice, and Ladell Betts. Should I keep things the way they are or make a change?
