The point I’d like to make is why no love for Kregg Lumpkin? Lumpkin is Tampa Bay’s back-up RB and is a work horse similar to Blount. He has a run-through-you style of play. Earnest Graham is expected to get a majority of the workload, but don’t be surprised if Mr. Lumpkin is a top-25 play this week.
Alright, and to those questions.
Do I keep Knowshow on the roster hoping he becomes a fantasy hero down the road, should the Jacksons fail me, or should I drop him for Battle. – Jeff
Well it appears Knowshon has lost the job for good. He will still get touches but closer to 5 a week then 20 which isn’t enough to be a valuable fantasy contributor. Jackie Battle has had one good game; personally I’m buying into him being a solid RB2 the rest of the season but he could turn out to be a bust. It’s frankly amazing the Chiefs can’t figure out how to use McCluster.
How do you feel about starting Schaub this week against Baltimore? – Trandoken
The weakness of the Baltimore defense is their secondary. It hasn’t truly showed yet but other then Ed Reed there aren’t any play makers so I would stick with Schaub.
Baldwin, Breaston, Heywerd-Bey, Gaffney, and Jenkins who should I add? – Chris-
This is probably the most common question all week for me. My order has been:
I believe in the upside of DHB as the most important factor when comparing him to the others.
Who should i start this week, Delone Carter vs CIN (If Addai can`t go) or DeAngelo Williams vs ATL? – Robert
Pretty simple decision for me, go with Williams. Atlanta’s defense leaves a lot to be had and Cincinnati is actually above average at stopping the run. In limited action Carter hasn’t looked strong anyways.
Would it be worth trading Sidney Rice for DeAngelo Williams? I’d like to improve at RB but unsure whether this would really do much other than assure I get points from Carolina’s highly inconsistent run game – Tom
I would absolutely make that trade. Going forward Rice has a really poor QB situation and now the emergence of Doug Baldwin.
Last week someone in my league gave up on Green-Ellis. I have 1st pick in waivers. Should I get him or Battle. Thanks. – Ron
Wow. Touch call. BJGE is attached to a better team but Battle has the best chance to be the ‘work horse’ of the group. I’d stick with BJGE as he at least has some proven games and Battle had the one. But if you are already deep at RB take a chance on Battle if you can afford to let him sit and have no expectations attached to him.
Would you drop Ridley for Montario Hardesty or *gulp* Ryan Grant? – Bruce
Well if you are completely thin at RB then you’d have to take a flyer on Ryan Grant. Earnest Graham and Kregg Lumpkin (both RB for TB) are interesting pick-ups this week as well to look into.
