I'd go with Fred Taylor. He hasn't missed significant time in three years, and he has a much better line than the 49ers do. Barlow I think will be pressed by Frank Gore. Not that I'm saying Gore has a ton of value either, as the 49ers' line is simply horrendous, so I'm staying away from the 9er offensive players. Fred Taylor should get the majority of the carries for the Jags, and even if he doesn't get all the TDs, he should top last year's total of two. The law of averages would say that he would return to 5 or 6 at least.

I think Barlow will be much better than most of you think.

chalk up another vote for barlow.

If im drafting ill take Barlow. He got 900 and 6 last year behind the worst line ever with the worst offence ever and the worst coach ever.

This year hes got a better line (newberry is back practicing at full speed), hes got a new offence (the WCO which he got 1000 yards in while spliting time 2 seasons ago), and a new coach who comes from the ravens and has a pound the ball mentatilty.

Or you can take fragile freddy and hope that he starts at some stage this year... and IF he does start that he can find the endzone more than last year (2 times)

I'd place Taylor a few spots above Barlow, I'd rather deal with injury than ineptitude.

Considering both of these guys are being drafted as a #3 RB, I would rather have Barlow.

No telling how long Fred Taylor is going to last with his knee problems or even if he will play at 100%. I would rather have a guy who can come in and score a few points off my bench when I need him (Barlow), rather than someone who may not even be able to play (Taylor).

This is exactly the choice i had last night in round six. I ended up taking taylor but i didnt realize he only had two td's last year. Now i'm getting a little nervous.

Had the same choice in my money league over the weekend and chose Barlow and would do so many times over. He is the ideal sleeper pick in my opinion.
