Who will be 2005's Reuben Droughns?

Postby BeefSandwiches » Tue Aug 02, 2005 3:30 pm

I know it's impossible to predict who will come out of nowhere and be a fantasy stud, whether it is for a couple weeks or a couple months. Last year, three different Denver Broncos RBs were being drafted and none of them were Droughns so I was taking a look at depth charts trying to see who had A CHANCE to emerge from a murky backfield situation.

Keep in mind these are just guesses because anyone who said Droughns would be the guy last year would have had a hard time backing it up and I am simply interested in other people's guesses.

(in no particular order)
Alvin Pearman
Adrian Peterson
Nick Goings

As I said, it's just a guess. Droughns didn't have 100 yards in his career heading into last year.

I like Shelton. Davis isn't healing and Foster could be broken at any time. Shelton is also the kinda bruising runner that worked so well with Davis.

Pearman is also interesting given Freddie's troubles and Toe's lack of....well, Jags confidence.

With things in Philly being what they are Buckhalter is also interesting but his knees worry me making Moats interesting.

And if you're gonna look for this years Droughns, why not look in the Broncos backfield....Mike Anderson.
