RB Shakeup

Posted: October 27, 2011 in General

Several injuries and Byes have left teams scrambling for a running back this week.  Tim Hightower (out for the season), Willis Mcgahee (broken hand), Cedric Benson (jail/suspension who knows), Mark Ingram (bruised heel), Joseph Addai (hamstring), Earnest Graham (out for the season) that is a large list of RB 2/3 or Flex plays to deal with chances are teams are scrambling to fill the gaps.  Some previous years fantasy assets are now back in play in Knowshon Moreno and Pierre Thomas one highly touted rookie to go with a sneaky time share man in Roy Helu and Ryan Torain come to mind.  Bernard Scott and Brian Leonard are ready for the monthly Cedric Benson jail/suspension watch, and he has a bye this week but Kevin Lumpkin becomes the man in Tampa if Blount can’t go.  If I am a Chris Johnson owner i hope he runs wild against the Colts just so I can up his trading value, he leads the list of underperforming RB’s that includes Rashard Mendenhall and Steven Jackson.  Now is a great time to trade Plaxico on his 3 td performance and name hopefully somebody bites because it’s not getting any better than 4 catches for 25 yds and 3 tds.
