Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Between these RB's who would you guys pickup. I have 1 roster spot left and my starters or good players are set but, I want to add a RB or WR. Any good WR's under the radar? I need good sound advice not because 1 player is on your favorite team thanks.
One Guy? Depends on what you want him for..
Ray Rice for mid season starter
Mendenhall for upside - could be huge
Washington is a ppr guy only
Benson - if you like 3 yrds a carry and smoke crack
TJ Duckett TD heavy league
Cedric Benson is worth a sleeper pick since he starts in Cincy.
Rashard Mendenhall will eventually get the bulk of the carries in Pittsburg
Donald Brown if/when Addai goes down
Ray Rice has the upside since McClain moved to FB (however he'll probably get the bulk of goal line situations).
I'm gonna go against what everyone else has said and go with Julius Jones. Knapp is setting up a run first game in Seattle which should see Jones get a lot of carries this year. He's one of my top sleepers this year.

Benson is the definite choice here. I'm very surprised that he is still available in your league. Almost every league I look at, especially 12 man leagues he is gone between rounds 4-7. Benson is your best option.
I think you have to go with Cedric Benson. The Bengals really do not have a backup that will be their go-to guy like Benson. He played well at the end of the year last year and he will be entering a full year as the starter. I know he has issues but the Bengals only helped him in the draft - drafting a top line and strengthening the idea that Benson is their go-to guy by not drafting any other RB. For me on that list, he was the best of them and he is the main starter with no one else left to pick from. Plus the team is not that bad - and getting better - go with the pre-season favorite pick.
Not much there. Isnt Ced Benson the starter in Cinci? I believe he gets most of the carries there. Also, Chester Taylor gets a few carries as is, but if AP goes down hes a good one. Ernest Grahm is good, but who knos what the Bucs are doing with all those backs...
Out of whats left i think Ced benson gets the most touches...
