Too many RBs????

Postby kevinoc81 » Thu Jan 06, 2005 12:32 am

OK. I know there can never be such a thing as too many RBs, especially from a fantasy stand point, but I have to wonder.......Where are they all gonna go? Right now you are looking at a ton of back-ups that might be moved or gain the starting job if the starter is moved (T. Henry, A-Train, C. Perry, S. Jackson, M. Morris, D. Foster, M. Shipp/Emmitt, Vikings RBs, Bell/Droughns, Garner/Pittman, Suggs/Green, Dunn/Duckett) and you have some stud rookies coming (C. Benson, Cadillac Williams, R. Brown, etc.). So the question is what are teams gonna do with all the RB talent? Is next year gonna bring even more committees? If it does, imagine the value of LT2, A. Green, etc. (stud backs without a committee).

SJackson will be the man in StL
Foster in Carolina
Bell in Denver (health permitting)
Pittman in TB
Suggs in Cleveland
Arizona - who cares?
Atlanta - who knows?
Minnesota - pick anyone lined up behind CPep and you'll need a padded room and a jacket with buckles.

Henry, ATrain and Alexander ... just have to wait for the offseason cash to fly (I wouldn't count on Mo Morris in Seattle; my bet is the Seahawks waste a pick on Shaun's replacement).

Does Faulk retire or committee?
Does S. Davis retire or committee?
Does Droughns committee or get traded?
Does Garner retire or committee?
What happens to W. Green?
Think Shipp could do well if Emmitt would leave.
Atlanta = Committee
Minnesota - Have never had a Minn. RB and never will.

Well, of the guys you listed, I don't think anyone on Zona, Minn, Denver, TB, Cleveland, or Atlana is gonna be moved. All those teams will likely keep the 2 or 3 backs they have.

gotta figure Blaylock or (more likely) Larry Johnson is gonna get moved as well... both have showed they can perform (at least with a good offensive line)
Best... fantasy advice... EVER. :D

Johnson is signed and Blaylock is a FA. Johnson showed he can be the back of the future when Priest finally retires. Johnson is the one to stay and backup Priest next year. Blaylock will move on and try to compete for a job somewhere (Maybe Seattle?) and lose to whom ever is there. LJ for 2006!!
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
