FANFOOD FF’13 – Get & Forget RB












The next preseason edition of the FANFOOD Get & Forget will focus on the Running Back position.


There is a wealth of information out there and we have an index of well over 400 Fantasy Football links on the FANFOOD Fantasy Football Tools page.  Combing through them all we have come up with some Running Backs you should get and some you should forget, followed by a recipe for Eastern Carolina BBQ Sauce. (see a theme going?)


If you have one of the first 5 picks in your draft, you know who you are going to take. It’s going to be a Running Back, and It’s either going to be Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, Doug Martin, Jamaal Charles or C.J. Spiller.

It’s when your draft pick is #6 or higher when you have some decisions to make. Do you take dependable RBs like Marshawn Lynch, Ray Rice or LeSean McCoy? Or do you go and get the best player at another position? Do you select Calvin Johnson or Aaron Rodgers and then come back for your first RB with your second pick?

Here are some RBs that will be there for you in Rounds 2 & 3 if you decide to go that route or if you just want to get two. They are the ones to get and the ones to forget as your first or second ball carrier for your fantasy squad.

Let’s get to it!


FANFOOD   | Get & Forget | - Preseason

QB | RB | WR | TE | DST |




Steven Jackson

I have never been a fan of this guy and he is injury prone, but moving to the high powered offense in Atlanta boosts his value up to the early/mid second round. SJax makes for a nice RB1 if you grab a different position in round 1 or great depth if you decide to go RB/RB. He will be playing on the first Super Bowl contender of his career and has looked healthy and explosive in training camp, which is a good sign. If you GET him, just make sure you select Jacquizz Rodgers later as a handcuff.



Stevan Ridley

Stevan, don’t call me Stephen, is another RB that you will be able to choose from in the early 2nd round of your draft. Most likely you will be drafting him as your RB2 and that’s not hateful, but as a former president would say what “is…is” that the Patriots are always a threat to run a time share at running back and that Ridley failed to top 100 yards in the 2nd half last year, ohh and the fact that he is a fumbler. But the main reason to FORGET him is the threat of Vereen.




Matt Forte

Forte has had injury issues the last two years, but he did finish with 1094 yards rushing and five rushing touchdowns. Trestman’s offense does like to throw the ball more, and if you are in a PPR league, that is his Forte (sorry). We like him as a RB2 with RB1 upside and a threat to GET 2000 total yards from scrimmage.



Maurice Jones-Drew

After the top 25 players are off the board, you have to decide what would Jones-Drew with your next RB? He is recovering from surgery, and plays for the Jags. FORGET that he is approaching 30, remember that he has not scored double-digit touchdowns since 2009. He’ll be starring you in the face in the late 2nd or early 3rd round of your draft, and while you might be tempted to make him one of your two top backs, don’t.




Reggie Bush

If you are in a PPR league and he is available at the end of the second or early third round, you have to go and GET him as your RB2. He is going to get around 200 touches and expect him to eclipse 1,600 yards from scrimmage this season. Remember, Bush caught 88 passes as a rookie in 2006 and averaged 80.5 receptions in his first two seasons in New Orleans, but that was a long time ago.”Eight years in, my body still feels good. I still feel healthy. I don’t feel like I’ve lost a step by any means. I still feel like I have a lot of football left in me at this point.” Bush recently told USA Today. We think so too.



DeMarco Murray

The Cowboys are talking about riding the D-Train all year. I just hope that they have good comprehensive insurance coverage (Randle) in case it breaks down (it will). Murray has top 10 talent, but he is consistently hurt and finished with just 663 rushing yards and four touchdowns in 10 games last year. The O-line in Dallas is nothing special. You may be tempted to hop on the train, FORGET the train, take the bus. He will be there in the same rounds as all the RBs above, but use that pick on someone else and let the people that wear a D on their caps, Deal with heaDache.


But don’t just take our word on it, see what other’s have to say:

Eastern Carolina BBQ Sauce


our next BBQ sauce recipe comes from the low country and does double duty as both a baste (a.k.a. mop) and a sauce. A mop is brushed on the meat while it cooks to cool it and flavor it. Because it is so thin, it penetrates deep. For people who love vinegar and a bit of heat, this simple sauce is all you need on a properly smoked shoulder or whole hog (in the eastern part of NC, whole hog is the cut of choice). Many of you will find it a bit severe and will want to use it as a mop in place of a rub, if you want, try one of’s many sauce recipes.



1 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon tiger sauce
Dash or two of Tabasco
Dash of Sriracha

2 teaspoons salt



Mix all ingredients together in a sauce pan and let simmer for 10 minutes. Can keep for up to a month.
