Thrown Ahman Green in this list conditionally. Even though he had a horrible year and in this case might not be applicable to bust status, he'll more than likely go in Round one than not.

Favre can retire. He'll still get his share of the carries. What's scary is that their offensive line has issues. Both Rivera and Wahle are up for FA. Not to mention more blockers with Franks and Davenport.

That might get real ugly.

I thought about Green, too. Seems that Pack is in a state of decline and they have a history of RBs who have a great seasons then disappear. Terdell(?) Middletom, Dorsey Levens, John Brockington? I think there may be a few more. I have a bud who a an ardent cheesehead and he is always drawing comparisons between these old RBs and current Packers. Drives me nutz.

Since no one has said him yet, I am going to say Martin. He had a huge year last year, and struggled the few before it.

I think he will be drafted higher than he should based on the numbers he put up this year, and fact that Jordan may go elsewhere.

I could see him only coming up with about 600 fewer yds, and fewer TDs too. Definitely less than what would be expected of him with the pick he will be selected with.

First of all, Travis Henry had a much worse turn out than Barlow, so all you Barlow owners...STOP COMPLAINING!

Well, some could argue that Barlow had higher expectations than Henry. Barlow didn't have anyone to compete with at RB (come on, Maurice Hicks???). On the other hand, Henry is being backed up by a younger, stronger backup RB. If Henry had the starting job for an entire year, he would have posted better numbers than Barlow IMO.


having had both Henry and Barlow, I think I am fairly unbiased to help decide this. Henry may have been the bigger bust, but when he went down, he went down fast. No one played Henry after the first few weeks- injury and losing his job made him an easy no-start. On the other hand, Barlow kept hanging around, and people kept hoping he would put up decent numbers, especially against bad teams. So while Henry may have been a bigger bust, Barlow was more damaging to more fantasy teams, making this the "Barlow Award", not the "Henry Award"
Best... fantasy advice... EVER. :D
