Pick up or sit tight?

This is the place for team advice - should I make this trade, should I draft that player, etc.

Pick up or sit tight?

Postby dd041496 » Thu Sep 21, 2017 3:51 pm

I currently have Jordan howard as my starting running back, let’s say he sits this week, would you start Powell, Burkhead, activate one of my rookies (and drop Burkhead) or pick up Tolbert, jerrick mckinnon?

Mixon, Kamara, or Carson would all be better starts than Powell and I believe Burkhead might be currently injured. And as far as dropping a player to make room, I've totally lost faith in Britt. He's dead to me. Stick a fork in him and toss him in the waiver wire heap.

Carson should be active at this point, regardless of Howard. Burkhead is injured and I would move toward Mixon.

You should be cutting Powell, not Burkhead I
