    Who should I drop?

    Here are my RBs:
    Marshawn Lynch
    Matt Forte
    Lendale White
    Ricky Williams
    Chester Taylor

    Who would you drop for Slaton?

    With Green going down, Slaton is now the #1 guy here. I think that would be better than at least Chester Taylor, who won't see time unless Peterson is hurt

    You really shouldn't drop any of those guys for Slaton.

    I wouldn't drop any of them for Slaton just yet.

    Dude, the better question is, how did you get all those RBs?

    I'm not sure I'd drop any of them for Slaton (actually, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't), but if I did, it would be White.

    Last year, Taylor and White had the same # of TD's, and while LenDale had about 265 more rushing yards than Taylor did, when you throw in receiving yardage, there was less than a 100 yard difference. I don't know how your scoring works, so maybe that makes a difference, maybe it doesn't.

    The reason I'd go with Taylor over White is because of Chris Johnson. Taylor's situation shouldn't change much. Peterson only missed 2 games last year, and even if he starts all 16 games this year, I don't see Taylor's role changing much at all. White on the other hand may still be the goal line back, but I just don't see his fantasy stats getting any better with a significant contribution from Johnson looming.

    I was going to say drop LW too, CT. But, I thought I'd heard Johnson got hurt Sunday and may miss some time. It might not be that serious, but I'm just going by what I heard.

    I just don't think I trust our running game enough to drop one of those RB's that are all on teams that like to run the ball.

    Just my .02

    I wouldnt drop any, but if I had to, it would be Ricky. They are the worst team. Chester Taylor is close, but he might get full time duties if AP goes down which is likely.
