I would. I think you're in decent shape... but I would go with your gut. Who are your WRs?
#324 By: Trevor.Moran, October 24th, 2018 20:30
Aj Green, tate, Landry, Robinson, moncrief, Godwin Lockett @hrr5010
#325 By: hrr5010, October 24th, 2018 20:50
I like that listing. I'm unsure if Julio brings more punch to your lineup over a fully healthy Bell, but at the same time it's difficult to project Bell's workload. I'd make the trade if you really want to, but I don't hate holding Le'Veon Bell if you've held on to him for this long. Thoughts @devinmci
#326 By: Trevor.Moran, October 24th, 2018 20:52
Yeah, Its 3wr 1 flex so I always start 4 wr obviously but... I'm 2 and 5 right now even though I'm 3rd in scoring. so I need as much help as I can get
#327 By: hrr5010, October 24th, 2018 21:28
I see where you're coming from. yeah, i'd do the deal. It won't help this week, but hopefully your league awards a playoff spot for most points.

I just traded AJ Green and Aaron Jones for Julio and Dalton. Wanted a shot at his upside if the TDs normalize. Few players are truly league winners. I think he’s in that elite group and would give up unknown return date of Bell and steady but not a smasher like Tate.
#329 By: Ryan Blakeslee, October 27th, 2018 16:39
Seems like you can wait on Foreman. I’ve already picked him up and dropped. Achilles injury has been almost impossible for RBs to return to a decent level of athleticism. Odds are he’s not going to succeed this year but I’ll still be watching him closely to add as a end if bench stash like Cannon or Mostert.
#330 By: Mychal, October 29th, 2018 19:32
Looks like the dream is over for Rojo truthers. Can we trust Peyton Barber?
Who to drop Rojo for though... seems all the breakout candidates have broken out or confirmed they’re busts by now. Cannon? Mcguire? Hard for me to put faith on the hot and cold Jets offense. Penny is an even bigger bust than Rojo at this point.
#331 By: Matt, October 30th, 2018 21:03
Ty Montgomery might be worth a look if he's available now that he was traded to Baltimore. I could see Ty Montgomery being a better version of Buck Allen. He's probably not a league winner but Buck was a solid RB2 the first several weeks before getting phased out for Gus Edwards.

Good question. @FF_Contrarian, will there be a mid season ranking article? Curious how you would rank ty, penny and rojo going forward.

I'll have to look at that. (@hrr5010 has been doing such a great job with the Zero RB Report, I strongly encourage you to rely on his work.)
I'd still be stashing highly drafted rookies. The incentive for teams to eventually play them is just so high. I was on Carson over Penny (in terms of value) and Jones over Barber, and I'd still lean that direction, but the Jones injury is a backbreaker. (Although he started very slow, Barber has impressed recently.)
@mateoloco suggestion of Montgomery is a good one.
This is also a good time to buy J. Williams again. He's been a huge bust, but the Montgomery trade means we're down to just a single injury necessary for Williams to suddenly have the backfield to himself.
In deep leagues where I needed RB help, I'd spread out some ownership between McGuire and Cannon, with the emphasis on McGuire.
#334 By: hrr5010, October 31st, 2018 15:45
Still plenty of time for Jones or Penny to work out, but the injury is a bit of a back breaker for Jones at this critical juncture. Penny failed to see the field for the second time in three games and has played behind 7th round pick Chris Carson and street free agent Mike Davis.
The divergence between the daft capital spent on both RBs vs. how the coaching staff has used them speaks volumes about the disconnect between the coaches/FO. TBB hilariously view themselves as contenders and refused to trade away DeSean Jackson. Meanwhile, their head coach benched the guy who's supposed to be the future of the franchise for a career journeyman QB who almost lost his job to Ryan Griffin when they hosted the Steelers back in Week 3.
Seattle are a run-heavy offense that can't find a way to get the ball to their first round RB. Next time you watch Russ Wilson run for his life when the oline inevitably crashes around him, remember that they could've opted to have drafted Will hernandez instead.
I'd still consider stashing Jones, if only because Koetter is absolutely on the hot seat and Monken would have to figure out what they blew an early 2nd round pick on. Seriously... they could've taken Kerryon but voluntarily picked Jones.... but long story short I'd take Ty Mo over both rookie RBs right now.
It's kind of fitting TyMo wound up on the Ravens. It was around this time last year Buck Allen was over taken by Alex Collins & Danny Woodhead (fresh off a 10 week IR stint). This dude's entire career is defined by being replaced by RBs who started the season lower on the depth chart or not on the team. I even wrote about this:
#336 By: Jason, November 6th, 2018 20:53
@FF_Contrarian is you had to drop one in .5 ppr - are you dropping Ekeler or DJ Moore this week?
#337 By: Trevor.Moran, November 12th, 2018 20:05
@FF_contrarian do you like penny more than Ekler currently?
#338 By: Sdparven, November 16th, 2018 12:42
For extreme zero RB ROS rank
Brown, Ware, Burkhead, TyMo, Josh Adams.
#339 By: thickfreakness, November 16th, 2018 13:54
Ware - More proven than Brown
Brown - Looked good in limited snaps
Burkhead - Muddy backfield, but potentially good opportunity and Sony injury history
Adams - 3 headed committee
TyMo - 3 headed committee and team not doing great. Excited to see what Lamar Jackson might do.
#340 By: Steven Young, November 27th, 2018 19:44
Well guys once again another stud RB with an amazing back up went down. Here comes Ekeler. It really is uncanny how strong zero RB has been this year. Ff_contrain is always strong in his picks but this year seems different. The whole team at rotoviz was so strong. If you listened and picked Alvin or CMC in the 1st along with Hunt who was mentioned, you are killing it. Pair that 1st round back with a handful of the zero RB targets and you are smashing. I have so many teams with combos of Tevin, Kerryon, Breida, Chubb, Ekeler, and Connor. Pair that stable with the early picks of Julio, OBJ, Mike and you're almost unbeatable. Thanks again for all the work you guys put in and for the message board as I've learned so much and have thoroughly enjoyed all the interactions. Hope everyone's playoffs go well.
#341 By: Different one, November 27th, 2018 20:03
Agree, you guys really out did yourself this year. I’ve been here for a few years now, and nobody expects perfection but you guys have been so on target with regards to stashes etc. I’ve missed some of the breakouts, but I’ve caught enough of them that I m in great position in all my leagues.
