Amos Zereoue, RB PIT

News: According to published reports, coach Bill Cowher has named Amos Zereoue the team's No. 1 running back. Cowher called the decision to start him over Jerome Bettis "a gut feeling."

Analysis: Zereoue has great upside and is worth an early-round selection as a No. 3 Fantasy running back.

Zero has to be the worst nickname ever, its like an insult that everyone refers to you by.

He's more commonly referred to as Famous Amos. I like that one better anyway...

great upside, worth an early selection as a number 3 fantasy runningback? doesn't sound like you like him that much.

James Stewart has been a number 3. Amos Zereoue is the same as James Stewart?

Well what he's saying is that Amos is too risky to put into a starting role in fantasy football at this point because of Bettis possibly getting a lot of goaline touches and sharing time, but he has the ability to surprise a lot of owners with good production should Cower use him enough. My take? There are more reliable 2nd tier backs out there, grab one of them and then see if you can't put Amos on your bench to fill in for bye weeks.

We just finished our draft yesterday and I got him in the 8th round (most mock drafts I saw show him going in the 4th). Man, was I happy to see he's the starter. Even if he shares carries or Bettis vultures the goal-line TDs, it's a steal. Especially if Bettis gets hurt, traded or wears down.

James Stewart went in the 6th in our league, Famous Amos is on the level of Willie Green and Stephen Davis.

I got Amos in the 9th round followed by O Smith in the 10th.

My RB's goes like this...Marshall, Fred Taylor, W Dunn, Amos, O Smith, and lamar Gordon.

Bettis got picked two picks before Zereous went to me.

Are you serious? Green and Davis are leaps and bounds over Zereoue, who barely even won a starting jobs Green and Davis will probably be the basis of their offense. Zereoue has Maddox, Ward, and Burress on his team.

wouldn't Ward and Burress open up the running attack better for Zereoue than Carolina's and Cleveland passing attack does for Davis or Green?
