  • I'd drop one of the Detroit backs for Doug Martin. Which one is a tossup.

  • I would drop Foster honestly, pick up Martin. Leave the Detroit situation alone and see how it shakes out.

  • Reports have Foster coming back week 4 possible and he's a top 5 rb when he comes back. I probably would stay put at least until we get a little closer to week 1 but I wouldn't drop Abdullah if you do decide to drop someone. Too much upside.

  • I have Foster on the IR spot which doesn't count to your bench depth.

    we have 2 rb on the line up
    and 2 RB on the bench, which you can use one for the flex position.

    So my problem is the two Detroit runners.

    Martin's available and he was huge a couple of years ago not so much recently

    Best bet for me I guess is to drop Detroit Bell, PU Dough Martin and if Martin fails, I can drop him and pick up bell again,(maybe).

    Well thanks all, at least I have more ideas I can ponder on what to do.

  • I honestly think you're fine. Just play Joique and Forsett and in a couple of weeks you have Le'veon

  • You guys are crazy to drop foster. Looks like a week 4 is possible. Altho this guy held on to Josh Gordon all year last year so I could be completely wrong. I am smarter than Sac tho if you need a tie breaker.

    It's possible Foster comes back in four weeks. It's also possible that it's nine weeks. It's also possible that it's 4 weeks and then he suffers a season ending torn labia two weeks later. It's risky to waste a roster spot on such an unknown.

    You could be right, but I don't like the odds of him coming back early AND staying healthy.

  • I get both sides of it. Depends on your roster is constructed is too. Some teams are set up better to do it better than others.

  • In other news, with both Yeldon and Ameer on my team I'm actually super excited to watch the Lions/Jags game.

    Never thought I'd say that.

    A big reason they didn't run it last year was injuries. They are going to be better at doing that this season.. and even if they throw a majority of the time, Bell is still a nice option to score inside the 5.

    No, 10, I had the first pick..
    Took
    1 Bell
    2 Cal Johnson, 3 Graham
    4 Forsett, 5 Brandin Cook.

    Picked up Abdulla and Sankey later in the rounds. somone waived J Bell, dropped Sankey for J. Bell.

    I add A Foster and put him in the Injured Reserve slot.

    I thought I was pretty slick when I found Pitts, Mart Bryant undrafted and unclaimed, so I piced him up, dropped Percy Harvin.. hated to draft that prick.

    Couple of players went for QB's early. I took Stafford and Rivers way late.

  • You're not in horrible shape if you stand pat. That said, I think you might consider other options.

    RBs in committee situations drive me absolutely crazy, but it it life in FFB. Detroit seems to be in this situation.

    I see 2 options:

    1. Start 1 of the Lions and be content that you may never know who the right one will be (only a worry until Bell plays and Foster is healthy)

    2. Drop both Lions. Pick up Doug Martin (could have a good year based on reports and should get clear #1 carries early)
    and Alfred Blue who I believe will be the clear #1 in Houston until Foster comes back.

    I'd seriously think about #2

    I'm with you, RB by committee doesn't sit well with me.

    I think I shall suck it up, cut the Detroit players and go with Martin and possibly Blue, or wait to next week and see how Sankey's doing.

    Thanks for your input and thank you in .Net.

  • Do not drop Abdullah for blue. Upside way too high. I do like Martin though. Reports on Foster say he could be back within the first 4 weeks.

  • You're crazy if you drop Ameer. Patience is key in fantasy, and Ameer will be their #1 by mid-season. Even early in the season he'll give you 12 touches a game most likely.

  • Keep in mind he will soon have Leveon Bell back and hopefully a healthy Arian Foster for the 2nd half.

    Abdullah could/should be a stud, but still some question marks there. Would be a good bench stash to see how it pans out.

    He'll have Foster for two weeks before he has a season ending torn labia.

    I contend the Foster will not be back before week 4, and if he is, will miss more time before the end of the season.

  • Wouldnt Blue be an ideal pick up as he would cover both Foster and Bell early in the season? I'm sure by the middle of the season someone else would start to shine a la Jeremy Hill.

    I'd drop Abdullah then. I get the upside and all that but he could get buried in the depth chart. A bird in the hand etc...
