With the season upon us, it is time to start buying and selling in order to make that push for fantasy greatness. What better position to look at then the most value, running backs.
David Wilson: Buy
Why am I so excited about this guy after hating him for the past couple weeks? Wilson still possesses a ton of upside even though he has yet to live up to his potential. As I stated before, the Giants dropped their second leading rusher in Da’rell Scott to sign Dallas Reynolds to help revamp their struggling offensive line. This means more work for Wilson and the veteran Brandon Jacobs. Jacobs should mostly see goal-line work still, leaving Wilson the remainder of touches. Aside from their match-up with the Bears in Week 6, the Giants face some of the worst run defenses until Week 15 when they square up against the Seattle Seahawks. If Wilson is ever going to live up to his preseason hype, his time is now. If Wilson fantasy owners in your league are willing to deal him low then I suggest you highly consider.
Stevan Ridley: Sell
I was probably one of the last fantasy owners to finally give up on Ridley. I was so sure he would finally put all the pieces together and become the runner he was last season for the Patriots. From what we have seen thus far, this is not going to happen. Ridley has been losing work to Blount and Bolden and has been for the most part, outplayed by both of them. It is without a doubt a RBBC (running back by committee) in New England and I just can’t trust someone who was drafted in the second round that loses goal-line work from two other (three when Vereen comes back) backs. While Ridley holds little value to most people in fantasy leagues, maybe you can give him and another bench player for a player with tremendous upside such as Gio Bernard. I suggest waiting on Ridley. When/if he has a good game, deal immediately.
Giovani Bernard: Buy
Speaking of Gio, I am absolutely loving what this rookie is doing in Cincinnati. Thus far in the season, Bernard has only been out produced by 14 backs in fantasy points. Keep in mind, this is while getting limited work due to “The Law Firm” being listed as the teams starter. While Green-Ellis is still currently the starter, Gio has been out producing him in almost every game this season with almost half as many touches. This is the first time in a while the Bengals are able to have a back who can be a major factor in the passing game. Gio is starting to get more work each week. As I stated in the preseason, it is only a matter of time before Gio steals the job from “The Law Firm.” For a back with so much potential, I suggest you try getting your hands on him before owners will refuse to give him up.
Arian Foster: Buy
After all of the talk of Foster losing work to Ben Tate along with Foster’s “injury problems,” Foster has still managed to put up the eighth most fantasy points for running backs. That is pretty good for someone who owners were freaking out about after a somewhat slow start this season. Last week Foster rushed for over 100 yards against arguably the best defense in the league. While Foster ran all over Seattle, he also received a boat-load more of work than Tate. Fantasy owners who were not afraid to draft Foster with a top draft pick had to have some sort of relief to see Foster get the bulk of work and produce against the Seahawks. This is just a sign for things to come for a back who has been one of the best fantasy producers over the past few seasons.
