  • Asiata if you're desperate but I'd grab both if you own Peterson just to be on the safe side, in case McKinnon takes over cause Asiata wasn't very impressive last year filling in.

  • Asiata is the short answer.

    12thBob makes a good point, if you have a barren bench you might want to consider both. Everyone thought Forsett would get most of the carries against the Steelers, but it was actually Pierce who ended up with the lion's share. Just because Asiata is the guy we "think" will get more carries, doesn't mean he will. It's not a bad idea to grab both to be safe. If your league is somewhat lax on waiver activity, you can probably get away with just Asiata and then grab McKinnon next week if he ends up seeing the ball more.

    It will probably be a split carry situation, though Asiata has played well in limited looks last season, and he knows the offense much better than his rookie competitor who's basically been with the team for a month.

  • Between Petersons looming suspension and Ingram injury, I may be looking at a rotation of Asiata, A. Morris, and T. Richardson. Really hoping to nab Ridley off waivers tonight.

    Sucks too. Ingram had 16 points Sunday.

  • Didn't need him but picked him up last minute anyway, kept him even with waivers this morning cause he has value until AP situation is resolved. Could be trade bait later on, he looked better than Toby Gerhart as far as a volume carry RB too.
