STD Scoring I have been searching all season for a RB2. Have Carr at QB. Picked up Watson 3 weeks ago and have an opportunity to trade Watson and McKinnon for Jordan Howard. Does this make sense or is Watson worth more? Thank you

if ur desperate for weekly wins now i may hold off...watson has a nice immediate schedule but if u plan to be in the playoffs do it. howard has THE best schedule per the buy low machine . maybe u can add help at qb if when u need it on the waiver

I'm in the minority on this one but I wouldn't trade DeShaun. Someone did a DeShaun trade last week for Adam Thielen and Jamison Crowder. I thought that was crazy despite the blessings of all who posted in the thread because Thielen is a WR2, at best, and Crowder is droppable.
Jordan Howard is a nice haul. But if you're in a league with 2 RB / 2 WR / 1 TE / 1 Flex that is standard scoring with 6 point passing TDs, you gotta keep DeShaun. QB is the highest scoring position. Any advantage there translates to big points versus other positions.
Plus, you somehow have 8 frickin' RBs, someone will emerge.

TD's are 4 points. I am 3-2 and am thinking about waiting another week with Browns on deck.

You've got 8 RBs. How many starters at each position?

I definitely would wait a week. DeShaun's market value shouldn't take a hit going up against Cleveland. And if things go to projection, DeShaun might be the highest scoring QB in your league by this time next week. Probably 2nd right now behind Alex Smith. I know streaming QBs is a viable strategy but number 1 overall is number one overall. That's a nice chess piece to roll out week after week. FWIW, 4for4 has DeShaun pegged as the 5th highest QB for the rest of the season. Jordan Howard at 11th highest.
Plus, you'll get to see another week of seeing if Jerick is finally gonna become the man. If he's usurping the majority of Dalvin's workload, you may already have your RB 2.
If those things happen, I might entertain a DeShaun for Howard trade straight-up. Then you'd have Zeke, Howard, McKinnon and your cadre of 4 awesome WRs covering 3 spots. In standard, you want as many RBs on the field as possible because RBs score > than WRs at the top end of the food chain.

NewJerichoMan- thank you. Alex Smith just hit the wire. If I can pick him up, would you then move Watson? Thanks

I suspect a good majority of the FF community would trade DeShaun (after the Cleveland game) for an RB 1, and then roll with Alex Smith and the stream. A lot of DeShaun's productivity is coming in gar-baze time so it's tough to rely on that.
