Scoring: 1 pt/10 yds, 6 pt TD, -2 fumble. Start 2 RB and a WR/RB flex.

My RB's: S. Alexander, W. Parker, C. Taylor, L. Maroney, C. Benson

I'm a bind this week with Alexander's foot and Parker's bye, so the vultures started circling. I was offered J. Lewis and R. Dayne for Taylor. Clearly Taylor is the man in MN right now, and I'm optimistic that his OL play will get better, but can he really stand up to a whole season of 30 3-yd carries a game? Lewis doesn't thrill me and R Dayne is a temporary stop-gap for a team that will always be in a must-pass situation, so I'm inclined to just suck it up and wait. But I'd be interested if anyone has thoughts on Taylor and Lewis going forward.

And what is up with Benson? I was hoping they woudn't be paying him so much money to sit on the bench, but he has so far failed to distinguish himself, on or off the field, and with his pre-season injury I'm not as optimistic as I was on draft-day. Does anyone see him as having significant fantasy value later in the season? Of course, our waiver wire is bone dry of RB's/ The best on tap is Norwood who I like, but who obviously has limited upside as long as Dunn is doing well.

Cheers,

Hubris
