Tons of fantasy "experts" just broke the tranny jumping on this guy's bandwagon but do they realize he was just 26car for 77yds (2.96 per carry average) before busting through Minnesota's D that had 11 guys within 8 yards of the LOS in an attempt to stuff the Bucs and get the ball back at the end of the game.
It's not going to get any easier for a guy who has to play Carolina twice, Atlanta twice, Buffalo, Jets, Chicago, Washington, and New England. Even Miami appears not to be the pushover rund D they were last year.
Viking's have one of the best set of DTs in the league. And Caddy was juking and breaking tackles just to get back to the line of scrimmage and/or gain 3 or 4 yards.
Caddy wasn't a top5 pick for lack of acceleration and top end speed. His ability to break the long ones is a key attribute to Cadillac's game, just like Kevin Jones. So what if his long run was at the end of the game and when they didn't need it to win, he still broke that 70+ yarder.
That is exactly what I would expect out of Caddy, facing a tough run defense up front and with questionable linebackers... break one to the 2nd level and take it the distance. He Hung in there long enough, and was productive enough to get the carries so he could even break the long one in the first place.
I swear the Buc's were lucky to have Pittman fumble away 3-4 games for them last year, or they would have never been able to draft such a dynamic, difference making RB.
