    Lost Kevin Smith...

    amongs these running backs I have on my bench, who should I start in his place?

    (Detroit) Maurice Morris - Kevin Smith's backup. They're playing against Arizona.

    (Buffalo) Marshawn Lynch - On a roll lately but backing up Fred Jackson. They're playing New England.

    (Houston) Arian Foster - He led the team in rushing attempts last week because Slaton is out and Houston is playing the Rams this week.

    I'm facing the same situation in two leagues and have the same players in both leagues except Lynch is in only one league. I'm in the playoffs in both and want to stay in!

    • I would pick up a runningback. may be snelling, mccoy, or beanie wells. I dont know how deep your league is. I would start lynch if you dont pick one up

    • Ouch! I lost Smith in one of my leagues too. I feel your pain.
      Of those three, it might be best to go with Foster since he'll be involved in both the running and passing games and it's a high-powered offense. If they get a big lead, he'll be getting lots of garbage yards late. The other two play on bad teams going against good teams and could get way behind early which would kill their chance at a lot of carries.
      What's available on the waiver/FA wire? There might be some decent options there, assuming you haven't already dumped Smith (I'm guessing you dropped him to pick up Foster)
