I'm in a 14 team league and the RB are depleted.

My RBs Forte(BYE), Pierre Thomas (BYE), Cedric Benson (HURT), Blount(Starting), Daniel Thomas(Concussion)

Here's the list of available players

Brian Leonard
Marcel Reece
Chris Ogbonnaya
Dexter McCluster
Alfonso Smith
Evan Royster
Shaun Draughn
Daryl Richardson
Ronnie Brown
Mike Goodson
Robert Turbin
Jason Snelling
John Kuhn
Ronnie Hillman
Darius Reynaud
Jackie Battle

I need one more RB to fill in my last RB spot.
Who should I pick up?
I'm having very bad luck with injuries this year.
I also have H. Nicks, D. Heyward-Bey

I need help!!!!!!

It's the lesser of 16 evils.  I would have to say McCluster.  I do like Leonard as well as I see injuries to his mentor giving him grid time in the near future.

For me it's either draughn (as long as Hillis is out), Kuhn or battle and just hope you get a goal line carry. At least these guys have that upside. The rest are useless in my eyes.

Daryl Richardson
Ronnie Brown
 for sure, they at least get in the game.  I just found Vick ballard this morning from INDY as the coach just said Brown is out for a few weeks I would see if you can get him ASAP as he is going to start and projected to get 12pts.

I'd go Battle. He we'll be at home on Monday night. They are still limiting Matthews.

Draughn has been screwing up a lot. TB defense is good too.

Battle is risky, b/c if Matthews shows up, Battle will get no looks unless it's near the goal line. Matthews impressed me last week, he looked pissed.

I would go draughn also. Another long shot could be casey from Hou. He's their fullback, gets no rushing attempt, but is used for receptions.

You are def in a tough spot.

Mathews is no longer being limited he will start and get most of the workload. He is going to have his best game tomorrow.

Of the list you suggested i think your only hope is Richardson because he actually touches the ball and Jackson is really slowing down this year. Only problem is Miami has one of the best rush defenses.

How about Danny Woodhead does anyone have him?? I have Ridley and i feel Woodhead will be in the game a lot when Seattle stuffs the run and you can get some good receiving yards from him
