Undervalued Running Back

Postby jon12545 » Tue Aug 26, 2003 8:51 pm

Who are some undervalued running backs that I might be able to trade a decent reciever for now and have a lot of upside? I need to upgrade backs and I'm not sure who to pursue. Thanks.

W. Green could be a top 10 RB, C. Martin will have to produce for the whole Jets team, but personally I like J. Stewart as a good sleeper, he might be a top 20-25 RB by the end of the year and he is still on some WW...

I think Duckett and Buckhalter are both undervalued and could play big roles this year...

Give me Willie Green and Stephen Davis (depending on where he went in your draft - his numbers from last yr were awful).

Buckhalter, Zereoue, O. Smith, Barlow - all these guys situations are too murky to tell right now. If they are in a RBBC, they are not worth more than backups.

Stephen Davis is the most undervalued back this year, he's a good RB who could be in a system that will constantly feed him the ball. I almost want to say that Hearst is also undervalued, mainly because his backup is constantly getting drafted before him.

I would also say Candidate and Mack, both are starters and both have the potential to be good players.

To me its Barlow. I think he's going to take 75-80% of the RB workload in SF and put up sizeable numbers.

I think Stewart will have a much better year than his average draft position would indicate. The offense as a whole will be better with Rogers and a year of experience under Harrington's belt, and Mariucci loves to run the ball.

Do you think it would be worth while for me since my best backs are Davis and Duckett do you think I should trade Marvin Harrison for William Green? Or do you think that I should try to trade Hines Ward for James Stewart?
