    RB Playoff Crisis

    12 team league PPR and currently sitting tied for first.

    RB on my roster
    Forte
    Turner
    James Starks
    Rashard Mendenhall

    I just dropped Michael Bush for Cleveland D because I have Houston and didn't like their first round playoff matchup against New England. If Forte misses multiple weeks with the ankle injury i'm looking at starting James Starks or Mendenhall.

    Best RB's available
    Rashad Jennings
    Michael Bush
    Chris Ivory
    Mark Ingrahm
    Joique Bell
    David Wilson (only cause Brown is out)
    Daryl Richardson
    Shane Vereen


    Since i'm tied for first I have very low waiver priority. Which RB's would be the best play for the playoffs.

    Jenning and Bush are the best bets, but with a low waiver priority you might be better off with what you got.

    Besides, it doesn't like like what forte has is serious. So you might be ok.

    Chris Ivory is hit or miss, but has potential depending on the match up.

    I agree with the Jennings and Bush. Especially, since Bush is the handcuff. I think you may have over-thought yourself with the Cleveland D. Or maybe you should have dropped Starks, instead.
    As cliche as it may sound, I'd like to raise another round, and if your bottle's empty help yourself to mine, thank you for your time and here's to life.

    Thanks for the help.

    I was awarded Chris Ivory on the waiver wire.

    Dropped Starks for a recently dropped Daniel Thomas

    Picked up Mike Tolbert as well.

    Michael Turner
    Matt Forte - Questionable
    Rashard Mendenhall - Dwyer named starter
    Chris Ivory
    Daniel Thomas
    Mike Tolbert

    I'm leaning towards Turner and Tolbert to start this week if Forte is out.

    Vereen could be good in PPR's....I can see a lot of Brady check downs to him when the Pats play Niners and Texans in weeks 14 & 15...
