Honestly, everyone; except for maybe that one guy in your league that sticks up on RB’s, is hurting for RB’s right now. The waiver wire always helps out, but it’s plain simple:  you either have good backs, or not so good backs.  With the position becoming weaker by the week because of injuries, it’s important to hang on to some that will produce.
