    for those of us out of the playoff hunt, but still needing a fantasy fix..what teams currently NEED a strong RB?

    IMHO, these are the most likely teams to sign one of the two big names, or draft a RB high..

    *Actually NEED a RB-
    TB Buccaneers- Barber still fills in adequately but isnt the answer, Ronnie Jones was a definitive swing and miss.

    Buffalo Bills - Shady will be 31 come July, and with Buffalo fully in rebuild mode, I expect he won't be around anyways.

    Indy Colts - Mack is meh, Wilkins and Hines even more meh.

    Oakland Raiders - what in the NFL says women beater more than the Raiders? And the need is obvious

    KC Chiefs - well duh..obviously they aren't on the map for Hunt..but Bell? Or one of their first couple picks on a RB? You bet

    *have a decent option, but an upgrade is largely needed-

    Miami Dolphins - Drake is fine, but more like a placeholder

    NY Jets - plenty of exceedingly mediocre options, nothing exciting

    Baltimore Ravens - Collins, Dixon, Gus...they're all adequate but easily replaceable.

    Houston Texans - sure Miller can get the job done, sometimes. And will Foreman ever come back?

    Ten. Titans - no one can honestly say they're satisfied with Lewis or Henry. But doubtful they'll go there.

    Philly Eagles - kinda depends on how Josh Adams finishes and Ajayi's status..but maybe

    Chic Bears - Cohen is likely a fixture, but Howard could be upgraded

    *extreme long shot, but not too terribly crazy

    NO Saints - not so much for the vets, but a strong took to replace Ingram? Why not

    Pitt Steelers - Conners impressed, but are they committed to him?

    GB Packers - Aaron Jones is likely safe, but he's far from not being upgradeable.

    Atl Falcons - Freeman is signed, Coleman is not

    Bell to Jets is hard to ignore.
    Hunt is tough to say.

    I don't think Shady will be moved.

    I put the Bucs on the top of the need list.

    No thanks. Too expensive. I think Aaron Jones is going to be very good as long as our new HC isn’t as stubborn as MM was with his usage

    Yea, another variable to put Jones in the crosshairs..will the new guy bring a system Jones can excel in? Or will he need/want something else?

    Same..far too much cap space for any non-QB/LT

    I read an article a few weeks back that said Indy was the team with the most potential cap space next season. This included potential cuts of bad salaries and I don't remember a big name on the list. That could be interesting. I wouldn't want KC to do that, though. Way too scary.

    I think Indy is gonna be the team that makes the play for Bell.

    As for Hunt, provided nothing else turns up, I'm gonna say Chicago takes him. Nagy already worked with him when he was a coach in KC and he fits in exactly with how Nagy is running that multi-look offense with Chicago

    Do people really think Ballard/Indy is going to sign Bell? I know they have money to spend but I really don't see this happening.

    Outside of the very few teams who have a bonafied stud, I wouldn't count anyone out. Especially one that has a need, the space, and he wants to go. I dunno that its got any chance, but its a fit

    Well, I've been saying the Bears aren't trading Howard. But at the season ending press conference yesterday, the topic of Hunt landing in Chicago did come up. And Nagy confirmed he reached out to Hunt.

    The issue now may be, how long does the NFL suspend him?
