I was very happy with my draft, even picking 1st. Week 1 paid off big time, but I feel pretty thin at RB depth. I like a RB at flex often, but don't trust Lindsey a whole lot. With a handful of backups having good weeks, do you guys think I need to grab one at the expense of a WR or am I good with Mattison as an option?

Definitely could use another RB or 2 on your bench... you should have at least 5 RBs on your team... Especially with a 6 man bench... and that is more true, when you are starting the likes of Mostert.... Who is not a bad start, but he is a low end RB 2...

I have Mostert, too. He seems big play dependent. He was clocked at the fastest speed by a ball carrier in 3 years on that TD catch and run yesterday. It's frustrating that he didn't score on that goal line play, but that's going to happen with a smaller back like him.

He does have incentives in his contract, so that does give me some confidence that he'll continue to produce.

I also only have 4 RB's, so I'm in the same boat. Hopefully, I can add Hines on my waiver claim. What do you think about Malcolm Brown and Joshua Kelley?

Yeah, especially since a lot of RB's get so many targets nowadays that having those guys is almost like having a WR, too.

Whether you do or not certainly depends on who is available. Without that info, it's difficult to assess.

Notables:
Snell
AP
Barber
James Robinson
Joshua Kelley

Our league randomizes the waiver order the first couple weeks, so maybe I can get lucky and snag one.

Just tuned in to the steelers vs giants and looking at stats Snelling value is going to go up.

Yeah, he must've earned a bigger role now. No catches, though, and I play in a 0.5 PPR.

Ended up last on the waiver wire.

Have to see what scraps are left or hopefully dumped by someone.

Snell, AP or Robinson would be adds for a WR. If you can't get those I would wait and see where you end up on the waiver order next week.

Dang, you're gonna wind up with someone like Frank Gore or the Titans defense.

Order gets inverted next week, so #1. Have to watch out for someone to shine this weekend.

Damn, got lucky and nabbed Joshua Kelley for Curtis Samuel. Super happy with that.

I'll probably have to replace Lindsay next week though. Turf toe can be a bad thing.

That's a pretty good pickup despite only having 10th in waiver priority.
