Le'Veon Bell - on IR until at least week 5. PPR.
So, he was my RB2. frick. I'm loaded at receiver, and I have CEH, so I'm still in good fighting shape, but I'm thin at RB.

Bench:
Ryquell Armstead JAX - out with covid, no timetable to return
Zack Moss BUFF - shares a backfield

Malcolm Brown of the Rams is available. He looks like the best choice, but I'm 6th on the waiver, and 2-3 ahead of me have mediocre to bad RB's.
Frank Gore, La'Mical Perine, and Josh Adams are available, of course.
Whole lot of meh after that.

Nyheim Hines is not available.
James Robinson is not available.
Benny Snell is not available.

I've got a waiver request out to drop Ryquell for Malcolm Brown, but if I can't get him, am I better off just riding with Zack Moss until Bell gets healthy?

If you're loaded ar receiver, find a team that's weak at WR and try to trade for a RB.

What do you think Nyheim Hines is worth?

My receivers are Chris Godwin, Calvin Ridley, Jarvis Landry, DeSean Jackson, Jerry Jeudy.

You may be able to get him for Landry.

Seems like the Dolphins will run by backfield committee.

I'll try that if my waiver doesn't go through.

I've got Malcolm Brown then Gaskin on waiver. They're the best options unless I can wrangle a trade.

Thanks

I figured Zack Moss would be a better bet, but you should see what's available.

By projection in my league, after Malcolm Brown, it's:
La'Mical Perine
Peyton Barber
Jalen Richard
Frank Gore
Darrel Williams
A.J. Dillon
Eno Benjamin
Darrynton Evans
Carlos Hyde
Jamaal Williams

Then it's Gaskin.

I don't have an RB on the bench right now.

PPR. Would you waiver for Frank Gore or Gaskin?

Save the waiver and eventually you’ll be able to add an impactful RB

Do you have Darrel Williams to handcuff CEH?

Nope. I have CEH. I guess I don't really understand the handcuffing thing.

re: Le'Veon Bell - on IR until at least week 5. PPR.
It's a pretty simple concept. You want your best player's backup in case the starter gets injured. In your case, you want to have Darrell Williams on your bench as insurance in the event that CEH were to get injured and miss time. Williams would be a better replacement in almost every case than someone you would find on the waiver wire. There's no guarantee that you would be able to get Williams if he was on the WW if CEH did get hurt.

The idea would be to control arguably the most productive backfield in fantasy. CEH gets hurt and you don’t have to blink. You’d only gave one RB spot to worry about

You need to make a trade to add a RB

If I offered you Jarvis Landry for Nyheim Hines, would you take it?

Would have to be bad off at WR.

Ok. I'll pick up Williams for a handcuff and take a look at the WR situation around my league. I'll start with the most desperate sucker.

Thanks for the advice.

re: Le'Veon Bell - on IR until at least week 5. PPR.
I do have a couple more questions for you.

Do you think there's any worth in holding onto Tua Tagovailoa or Ryquell Armstead-RB Jacksonville? Tua may never get the starting job this year and Sleeper is telling me Jacksonville will run RB by committee.

I just picked up Parris Campbell from Indy on waiver. I need to drop someone to get the handcuff for CEH. In addition to Tua and Ryquell, I also have DeSean Jackson and Jerry Jeudy on my bench. I'm not married to keeping any of those 4.

ETA: Russell Gage is also available on the waiver.
