    Spiller is a no brainer, next look at Morris, but by next week Shanny might be starting someone else, still a good pickup in my opinion. I think Dwyer continues to get more playing time even though Mendy is coming back. My sleeper would be J. Rodgers, had a nice first week and I think by mid season you will see him un seat Turner as the starting back in Atl.

    I would rank them:

    Spiller
    Morris
    Donald Brown- clear starter
    Rodgers - especially is PPR and is looking to get more work
    Dwyer- redman sucks and no one else until mendenhall comes back
    Mendenhall - will likely have to wait a few weeks but could be a guy to stash

    i wont come close to getting spiller or morris, you think rodgers ? i looked at his snap count since he is getting the hype from everywhere, but played only 36 snaps total out of 54, 25 on offense and 11 on special teams

    Spiller is obvious, make your claim and see what happens.

    Beyond that, I agree that if you're looking for a sleeper then your man is Jacquizz Rodgers, especially if you're in a PPR league. I think he takes over as the starter halfway through and starts producing right in time for the playoffs. Turner is done.

    If you're looking short-term then I guess it's time to saddle up with Mike Shanahan, although you'd probably prepare yourself for some disappointing outings, as he is notorious for his fickle nature when it comes to RBs.

    Personally I would take brown since he is guaranteed carries. Rodgers probably has more long term upside but you won't be able to start him until he takes over for Turner

    I agree with 86. Brown is the one guy on that list who is getting the burn long term in all probability. Spiller or Morris (if he can stay out of Shanahans doghouse) could be the best upside plays but Spiller is only a short term fix as Jackson is back in 3 weeks and Shanahan is fickle as mentioned. I disagree with the notion that Rodgers will unseat Turner this year; Turner may be a plodder but he adds an element of toughness to a finesse team that badly needs his bruising running style. Rodgers is a nice fantasy player but Turner is the better back for what that team needs IRL. Mendenhall if hes available is automatically my #1 choice if hes available but I dont see him listed. If Mendenhall is available Id grab him and Brown....

    Wilson. I like him but until he corrects his fumbling issues coughlin wont use him with any regularity.

    well, as expected i didnt get morris or spiller, staying put for now but just got offered Darren Sproles for Mike Wallace

    My RB are DeMarco Murray, David Wilson, Deangelo Williams
    My WR are AJ Green, Roddy White, DeSean Jackson, Mike Wallace

    What you think, if i make this deal i would drop David Wilson and could pickup Randall Cobb or Kenny Britt or the one week wonder Kevin Ogletree ?

    Pick up Mendenhall and stash him on the bench for a little, once he gets back into the swing of things he's gonna be a solid starter to get you to the playoffs coming late into the season.
