Are RBs worth the money

In my franchise I need to decide if Dalvin Cook is worth re-signing. He is gaining 100+ yards/game but whenever my backup comes in, the numbers donít seem to drop off. So what Iím asking you guys is: Are highly-rated backs worth spending money on? Or is it smarter to invest in upgrading other positions and use lower-rated backs?

Re: Are RBs worth the money

Iíd say it really depends. I play as the Eagles and Miles Sanders was tearing it up. He got hurt for 6 weeks and I was left with Jordan Howard, Holyfield and I signed a low rated FA. The drop off was huge. Maybe your backup is better but has he had to play extended time or just as a sub type player getting a few carries a game? Realistically if there isnít much drop off then Iíd say let him walk and go with the other guy.

Re: Are RBs worth the money

I'll spend on a guy that is an excellent route runner and has blazing speed. It's hard to replace the speed of a guy like Mostert. But it's not something that's necessary to have success on the ground.


However, if you have a guy that dominates linebackers in coverage, that's something worth keeping.

Re: Are RBs worth the money

^^ Also all things related to acceleration. I need my guys to hit top speed fast, and to not lose a lot when changing direction.




So basically, I'll spend big on a very fast, quick guy who can get open, because it's perfect for the scheme I run. Otherwise, not so much.

Re: Are RBs worth the money

Thank you guys for the input. I donít have a big enough sample size to make the call yet. Iím only 3 weeks into the season so my backup has only had a small handful of carries. The problem is I need to decide on Cookís extension now or risk losing him to free agency. I guess Iím just gonna have to roll the dice

Trade him! If you're gonna let him go, try to get some draft compensation (unless the dead money is going to hurt you long term).

Definitely trade Cook. RBs do not have the value on the field to justify the salary cap hit. As noted above - find a RB with good catching and short route running; speed is a top attribute.

Re: Are RBs worth the money

I've always been a running back by committee type of guy so I choose not to spend big money on the RB position.
