Scrambling after McKinnon


#1

Hey everyone.

I picked up Breida after the McKinnon news but I’m not liking my RBs for week one.

Fournette (RB1)
Lynch (vs LAR)
Kerryon (not a for sure starter but going against the Jets)
Breida (vs MN)
Boston Scott (possible sleeper?)

Should I pick up and start Blount, Clement, or Powell, or roll with one of the guys I already have? I’d drop Scott for any of those guys.

Thanks everyone!

Picking up Blount to go with Kerryon might be smart.


#3

Who else in on your bench? Bilal Powell should be on your team but I don’t want you to lose Boston Scott if possible.

I would be completely fine going Fournette and Lynch week 1 by the way. Lynch isnt in the best option but will receive volume


#4

Don’t do this lol. This is a waste of roster space. I have Kerryon everywhere but don’t expect him to start for you. He’ll be a late season winner/bloomer.

I’d def pick up Powell, he seems to have starting job for now so see what developes there.


#5

I didnt mean long term, but a stream option for a week or two. Blount ought to have early season value until Kerryon gets his weeks 4-6 or whatever


#6

No one in that backfield has early season value. The least of all, blounte. Who will go out there a on a couple short yardage situations, maybe if you’re lucky get a TD. If he doesn’t score a TD, you’re lookin at 5 points. There’s way better options out there than blounte.


#7

thats a fair take. I guess my take is that he has a larger role early on, but I am open to the possibility I am just wrong.


#8

Others on my bench are Kupp, Cole and Mike Williams. I’ve been trying to trade Kupp for another running back but no one is biting


#9

That trade is never going to work with RBs falling like flies. Best you can hope for is using guys like Kupp as a sweetener to get an upgrade at RB or WR.
