It's a keeper league. The backs that are worth a damn (and aren't kept) usually go right away. I think his team will be fine, but I'd have to see what the other teams look like.
I know that the backs go quick especially in keeper or dynasty leagues. Still, thats a bad situation there. I might try and deal a Steve Smith (Car) for a back, even a prospect type back like a Daniel Thomas, Ryan Mathews or a Ben Tate. Hes 30+ anyway and only has another good year or two anyway imo...just an idea
Steve Smith and Darren Sproles has helped me become 3-1 and so far I have the most points forced in the league! Next week i catch a break as my opponents two running backs, Reggie Bush and Peyton Hillis have a bye. I miss out on Marshall but hes it.
