We are going into week 9 now and I am wondering how to address my RB problem. I currently do not have any decent options for my #2 RB, and I am starting to wonder if I should start throwing out some trade offers or something because if I don't do something I'm going to see my 6 game win streak come to an embarrassing end real soon.
The problem I have with trading is that I do not have any good players that I can afford to let go of, and as for the rest of my roster, I don't think anyone would trade a decent running back for them. My only chance seems to be throwing Antonio Gates in an offer for trades, but he has been so bad this season I don't think anyone would want him.
But in retrospect, he did have a good game this Thursday night and put up 20 points two weeks ago so it may be worth keeping him for a while longer to see if it'll pay off in the long run. However, after a solid performance on Thursday night I don't really have faith in his consistency and think it may be best to trade him as soon as possible so that other team owners view him as more appealing than he actually is and are more likely to give up a decent RB for him. I may even have to also throw in another player for additional incentive to accept my offer, but as I've already said, I do not really have any player that is any decent who I can afford to part ways with.
