I handcuff McFadden with Goodson in my draft. Then I hear Taiwan Jones has the RB2 "locked up" after camp, so I dump Goodson and pick up Taiwan. Now I hear Taiwan has lost the backup role because he had a pitch tossed into his facemask. Really? One play gets you taken out of RB2?
So what's the deal? Who is McFaddens handcuff??

I think the correct answer is both. If McFadden goes down it will probably be a time share situation. I'd give the slight nod to Goodson getting more touches since he has somewhat of a track record from his time at Carolina.

Don't keep either of them on your roster. If and when McFadden gets hurt, Oakland will most likely take a RBBC approach. And neither Goodson nor Jones are good enough to provide you with enough production to warrant a roster spot. Some "handcuffs" really aren't worth the roster space (Felix Jones also comes to mind).

I agree about the Oakland situation.

As a DeMarco owner, however, I still think Felix could be usable during bye weeks if DeMarco misses a game.

Also depends on your bench size. There are no hot RBs on my waiver wire that would be more worthy of a roster spot than Felix.

Though now that I think about it, there are a couple WRs who might be worth dropping him for.

Agreed! As a Felix owner I thought about dropping him but using your logic I'm going to hang on and see what happens.

You're not a DeMarco owner, so you probably should drop him for an extra WR. Why only three WRs on your roster?

Man. I would not feel comfortable not having one of them on my roster if DMC goes down.
I don't see Palmer's ragarm beating too many teams. I think they have to feed the RB position to have any shot.
I do want to free up a spot to pick up Andre Roberts, buuuut....
I'm hanging onto Turbin and I don't want to dump DMC's backup. Whoever it turns out to be.

This. Completely.

McFaddan himself averaged 2.1 YPC on Monday night....I doubt his backup is worth owning.

I agree with keeping Turbin as a lottery ticket.

But you might be better served trying to bolster your RB depth now so you have a better option than Taiwan if McFadden gets another boo-boo on his foot. Or you could drop him for another WR.

You're not a DeMarco owner, so you probably should drop him for an extra WR. Why only three WRs on your roster?


The main reason is that I'm a RB whore. The explanation is as follows. I drafted Tate as a keeper next year since he is going to be a free agent. Unless Foster goes down I don't see much use for him this year. Basically he's a Rb who wont be any use to me until next year. I liked Jackson and Charles so I drafted them. I then took Benson next as my RB 3. I still don't know why but I grabbed F.Jones thinking he may have a chance to split carries or in case of injury to DeMarco. Then I grabbed Morris as a 17th round pick. I thought long and hard about a WR instead of Felix during the draft but I went with Felix. In hindsight I should have gone with another WR but didn't. We HAVE to have a roster with 2 Kickers, 2 Defenses, and 2 TE's... I do need a WR though, and hope to pick one up when one is worth picking up. For now I'm hanging on to him. I have 1st waiver priority so I'm waiting it out.

I actually like Taiwan Jones but I imagine he won't be given a real opportunity to shine due to rbbc and seniority with goodson (could be decent in PPR by the way week 1 looked, given his hands too). I actually think the backup will be more involved/productive than people think and will be watching it closely throughout the year.

As a McFadden owner and Raiders fan, I think Goodson would receive the most carries in case of disaster, but I don't think he's worth rostering. Oakland's offense looked awful Monday night, and the return of Moore will only help so much. Only a supremely talented RB like McFadden has a chance for consistent value at RB on that team.

And I'm surprised to see Reece not at all considered in this discussion.

Reece is a talented player, but can he play tailback?

If so, he'd be their best tailback behind McFadden.
