Looking For Dynasty RB Ideas (1 Viewer)

With my team out of contention in my dynasty league, I'm starting to scour the waiver wire for potential dynasty RBs who might make an impact next season. Any ideas out there?

Super-vague question.Depending on league size, roster size and starting lineups there are can be a widely differing spectrum of whom might be on the waiver wire.

I'll throw out a deep homer pick I posted in another, similar thread.

In very deep leagues: Danny Ware

Assuming that the Giants don't re-sign Ward and Jacobs, FWIW I expect the Giants to re-sign Jacobs over Ward if the money is reasonable (see below), Ware could slip into that 2nd RB role with Bradshaw.

He looked great in the pre-season and the Giants like him enough to protect him on their 53 man roster even with three RBs in front of him. Also of note, the Giants have scouted RB talent quite well as of late, grabbing talent late in the draft and from the UFA pool; Jacobs (4th rounder), Ward (practice squad signing from Jets as a 7th rounder), Bradshaw (7th rounder), Grant (UFA) and now Ware (practice squad signing from Jets as a 7UFA)

Ware's size and good combination of power, vision and speed remind me a bit of younger version of Ward so I'd expect the Giants to let Ward walk and resign Jacobs for they can keep a good complementary back system working with Jacobs, Ware and Bradshaw.
 
I've been blessed with two(or three) NFC North games appearing on my television each weekend, and I haven't seen much in the way of dynasty prospects/value in the division outside of Brandon Jackson. Assuming the Packers can/want to un-load Grant and his contract, Jackson is a player I will attempt to acquire in February(before the un-loading/draft/other fantasy GM's can pounce). Chicago has nothing worth mentioning outside of Forte(Wolfe lacks the tree-trunk sized legs to be a horse, I guess he may have been worth a mention, but Angelo will probably draft/sign Forte's insurance policy in 2009), Minnesota will probably draft/sign Chester Taylor's replacement in the spring(unless Chester's contract is cap-friendly, I have no idea, but if they do use a 3rd/4th round pick on a RB, he will find his way to my roster, regardless of name/talent/etc). The Detroit Lions thought so highly of their RB-stable they gave Rudi Johnson a call, although this was done prior to Kevin Smith's emergence as a legit NFL talent.

The FBG's will be hard pressed to give you much help without a glance at the available FA's in your league...are players like Jammal Charles/Brandon Jackson/Darren Sproles/Garrett Wolfe rostered? If so, hitting on a long-term RB prospect is pretty much a crap-shoot at this point in the NFL season. I look for talent stuck behind older RB's(I call any RB who has out-lived his initial rookie contract "old")/talent that made you go wow when you saw them playing for State U/players grinding away in the cooler NFL climates/ and of course, talent that was fortunate enough to land in a good situation/system.

Players like Danny Ware? My league 'aint that deep(can only roster 5 RB's at any given time, but we can roster quite a few college backs through the developmental draft, which is pretty cool)...but the Giants know how to pick 'em! Which is pretty important in the grand scheme of dynasty things. Trusting the judgement of GM's with an eye for RB talent/track-record is wise, imo, just make sure the RB isn't rostered for his uncanny ability to make tackles on special teams, and that ability alone.

danny ware was a very talented RB coming out of highschool that got slowed by injuries while he played at UGA... if hes avalible on your WW, and you have room to stash him, i would.

Yeah, that was vaguely worded on purpose...just trying to gather some ideas. Thanks for the help. I'll take a look at Ware.

Funny stuff, I picked him up in both of my dynastys with about 5 minutes left on waivers as a stash for next year.
 
I have dumped my excess veterans I'm not going to keep anyway and added an army of deep RB's

Jalen Parmele

Marcus Mason

Danny Ware

Thomas Clayton

Thomas Brown

Kregg Lumpkin

I'd be surprised if guys like Brandon Jackson and Darren Sproles are available, if they are jump on them - Sproles first.

 
A few guys I like that may be rostered, or may not:

Fred Jackson looks good and is an exclusive rights free agent

Kevin Jones is a free agent this offseason

Darren Sproles is a RFA

Jerome Harrison has shown flashes and Lewis is due a lot of money

 
Mike Hart in Indianapolis might be on the waiver wire. He got hurt early so he might have been dropped or forgotten. He's not going to be the next coming of LT but with Addai seemingly always banged up and Rhodes getting a little older he might get some playing time in a good offense.
