RB strength to depletion in 24 hours


#1

Started the week feeling fantastic about my RB situation- even throwing out a bunch of trade offers to try an upgrade some other positions.

Started with: Gordon, Mixon, Michel, Ingram, Royce Freeman, Clement, and Richard

Ended the week with:
Gordon- Injured (could be serious)
Michel- Injured (most likely serious)
Royce- Injured (week to week)
Mixon- Fantastic matchup and only managed 50 yards on the ground and ONE yard through the air
Ingram- Bad matchup but still- only 32 yards on the ground
Clement- 6 yards
Richard- On a BYE, hoping he has any value with Lynch being out

Should I be worried moving forward? Feeling the RB blues as injuries managed to rattle most fantasy teams.


#2

I know the feeling!

My RBs:
Gurley - thankfully OK
Gordon - injured
Conner - on a BYE with Bell return imminent
Lynch - one a BYE + injured (only traded for him last week for A. Jones)
Hyde - traded to Jags, no idea how this could play out
Duke Johnson JR - zero value, panic pickup for this week only
Crowell - was a game time decision and played against the Vikings

I wouldn’t worry too much - you’ve got depth there!

I would not worry about Mixon and Ingram, they’re still auto starts.

As far as the injuries, yes I would be concerned, but You’ve got the depth to get through it in the immediate future.

Same here (two teams):

Standard team:
Barkley
Gordon - hamstring last minute DNP, bye week 8
Conner - bye, now more rumors of Bell returning week 9
Michel - knee injury, possible out rest of year
Mixon - game scripted out by KC, Dalton
Lindsay

PPR team:
Gordon - hamstring last minute DNP, week 8 bye
Fournette - out most of the season, out until week 10
Michel - knee injury, possibly out rest of year
Hyde - traded to JAX, out week 7, RBBC at best until week 10, then handcuff at best
Yeldon - RBBC at best until week 10, then handcuff at best
Chubb -
