So my team is not very good but somehow I pulled off a week one playoff bye by winning my division.  That means in this league I will only have to win one game in order to get the Finals.  I am in desperate need of a ringer rb.  I have Fred Jackson, Johnathan Stewart, David Wilson, Marcel Reese, and Peyton Hillis.  I lost Cedric Benson early in the season.  Reese was a huge pick up for me.  I would appreciate anyone to give me info on who might be worth picking up with the chance they might do something next week.  Or who might you start that i already have.  I can start three RBs but I will start two and use a WR in my flex.  Thanks

Your best hope is for Ahmad Bradshaw to break an ankle this weekend, leaving David Wilson as the only option in the Giants backfield.Otherwise you'll have to start FJax and Reese and hope the rest of your team can pick up the slack.

Have to wait on McFadden and if he is banged up again Reece will be a good start! Then Fred Jackson just because he will get work!! What about picking up Powell from jets or Bell from Detroit would be great starts over your backs. Then Maybe Forsett and Hardesty could get some safe yardage for long shot plays

thanks guys it would be pure luck if wilson plays or reese gets his job back due to a mcfadden injury.  i will pick up powell all the other rbs mentioned above are gone.  a lot of money for first in this league hoping for the best.

Just lost Fred Jax too.  Not looking good.  Trying to add bilal Powell.  This means i will most likely have to start David Wilson against Atlanta and Peyton Hillis against Oakland.  I am trying to pick up Billal Powell on waivers.  Johnathan Stewart is a question mark with an ankle issue and Reese is in a timeshare with McFadden unless he is really hurt.  In that case I will start Wilson and Reese.  I have Larry Fitzgerald as well at WR.  I am trying to pick up Andrew Hawkins and start him over Fitz.  I can't bare to watch Larry struggle because his team is so bad.  Any help opinions???

david wilson has the most upside from any of those, any rbs from new orleans available in your league?, turbin from seatle , peirce from  baltimore, they all better options than hillis

peyton hillis might actually get alot of carries with the injury of bowe, kc might run the ball the whole game
