I'm in a 10 team league (non-PPR). Roster (position players) as of today are:
QB - Brees
RB1 - McCoy
RB2 - Murray
WR1 - Cruz
WR2 - J. Nelson
WR/TE - J. Graham
WR/RB - Josh Gordon
BN - McGahee
BN - D. Hopkins
BN - Bryce Brown
So, I got an offer of CJ Spiller for Jordy Nelson. I know that based on YTD production, it's a no brainer (keep Nelson). But the option to get a legit RB1 with big upside given my lack of RB depth is tempting. There are plenty of decent WRs to be had on waivers....but not of the level of Nelson.
Current record is 3-1 averaging 131 points a week.
What do you guys think?
BTW - same owner rejected an offer of D.Hopkins for David Wilson. He also has Lacy, MJD and Doug Martin.

Murray is an excellent RB2, especially because he goes up against WAS, PHI, and NYG X 2. The one question with him is durability. However, Spiller has had some injury issues this year and the fact that Fred Jackson basically splits touches with him worries me. Murray has the softer schedule and all the touches to himself.
You only have Hopkins on the bench and Nelson is basically a must start every week. Whoever you pick up off of waivers is not going to be anywhere near as good and therefore I'd leave your lineup alone.
P.S. When McGahee gets back into football shape, I think he'll be a decent flex option this year.
