Player you want: Kenneth Walker III

Each game, the Seattle Seahawks are giving Kenneth Walker more work and each game, he's making the most of it. He has scored four touchdowns in the last two games and when he gets rolling, is a straight-ahead bull rusher that is not easy to stop.

Best of all, rookie Zach Charbonnet is not eating into his workload as much as some thought he would. He has a total of 16 carries on the season, so Walker is clearly still the top dog in that backfield.

Walker is a guy I would look to make a trade for as his owners may not see the great season he has the potential of having. But when all things are running the way Pete Carroll wants them to, he will feed Walker as much as he can as the season goes on.

Player you don't: Joshua Kelley

Kelley was an obvious add on the waiver wire when Austin Ekeler went down with an ankle injury and it is starting to look like that injury is going to cause one of the game's top RBs some long-term issues.

However, Kelley just has not looked good at all and you should get off of him, and any other Chargers running backs not named Austin Ekeler.

In the last two games serving as Ekeler's primary replacement, Kelley has rushed for 51 yards on 24 carries. That's barely over two yards per attempt. He doesn't offer anything close to what Ekeler does as a receiver either. He has just one catch on the season.

Next. Waiver Wire Week 4. Week 4 waiver wire. dark

Perhaps there was some validity to Ekeler wanting more money from the Chargers. Kelley is not a player that should be dropped because he's still technically a starter, at least until Ekeler returns to the lineup, but I wouldn't be starting him unless the other RBs on my roster were street free agents.
