Ahmad Bradshaw

Bradshaw is sitting in our league's free agent pool. I'm really wanting to pick him up, but having trouble dropping one of the guys I've drafted. I'd drop a RB, since I already have 5 on my roster (and we start 2).

I've got Slaton (will not drop), Moreno (will not drop), Benson, J Jones, and J Lewis. Since, J Jones has no chance at getting a ton of touchdowns, my thought is to drop him. Benson hasn't looked good this preseason, and the Browns haven't looked good this preseason... where as I like Bradshaw's potential if Jacobs gets hurt (like he does every year).

Anyone have any thoughts, or you think I should just hang onto what I have:

Roster (start 2 QB's, 2 RB's, 3 WR's, 1 K, 1 TE, 1 Def)
QB: Brady, Warner, Hasselbeck, Orton, Leinart
RB: Slaton, Moreno, J Lewis, J Jones, C Benson
WR: C Johnson, V Jackson, A Gonzalez
TE: V Shiancoe
K: J Reed
D: San Diego

Honestly I don't know why you have 5 QB's and no backup WR. In your shoes I would drop Leinart; I know he's money if Warner goes down but to have 3 backups at a position where you have 2 of the top 4 or 5 starters is a bit much. If you must drop a RB I would drop Jamal Lewis but I'm not sure it's worth it to have Bradshaw over him.

Agreed. Really I think any league starting 8 skill players sjould have bigger rosters, but otherwise I don't think it makes much sense to have 5 QB's. I'd drop Leinart and then hope you can pick him up again if Warner gets hurt. But if not I think I'd keep all of those RB's over Bradshaw, but if I had to drop one it would be Lewis.
