Need Help: With AP out, already thin RB corps gets thinner

I'm in an 11 team league that starts 3 RBS per team every week. At the beginning of the year I had AP, Hightower (IR), and Felix Jones.

I have been scrambling the last few weeks to pick up guys that might have a shot to get touches:

This week I have:
Donald Brown-Indy
Daniel Thomas- MIA
John Kuhn- GB
Felix Jones- DAL
AP- MIN
Charles Clay- MIA

I was thinking about starting THomas and Clay tomorrow, and Brown on Sunday. They both are guarenteed about 8-10 touches. Clay is basically the Delanie Walker of MIA, they are going to throw him the ball a lot out of TE settings. Thomas has pretty good yardage even though Bush is the goal line back. I had a feeling Kuhn would score last week and he did. I don't have a good read on him this week. I don't want to start 3 guys on Thanksgiving day though.

Any advice would be great.


Plus I'm not sure if I should start VD or Marshall in the TE/WR slot.
Dude.

You're hosed any way you spin it.

Do you have a high value QB or WR you can trade (if your deadline has not passed?) You need some serious help if that's the best the waiver wire has to offer.


Oh, I would start Marshall over VD. The Miami machine is rollin. Why is Vernon not your starter? If you have a better TE I would trade him for an RB ASAP.

Might want to pick up CJ Spiller if he is still available. Fred Jackson is now on the IR

Its a crazy league. 3 Running backs and 3 WR/TE spots. I usually start Larry Fitz and Victor Cruz and then either VD, Marshall or Danarios Moore in the 3rd slot. My QB is Ryan who has been on fire. AP has been giving me solid efforts every week.

I was about to trade Garcon for Starks but the guy I was going to trade with didn't trade him after Bradshaw went down for him. I'll look into Spiller. Didn't know Jackson was on IR.
