(I'm already doing BB rows in my routine)
RDLs and deadlifts target different muscles, but they are definitely a good choice.

With RDLs never sink past the point where your lower back wants to break. This will keep your lower back strong and in good shape.

I honestly like having 2 different row exercises each week, plus a pull down or pull up. You can never have enough back strength. In the absence of deadlifts, I would do 2 rows.
