gotta love it as im sure most owner have one of the two.
last nights game between NYJ and WASH showed exactly why its going to be a rough season for fantasy i believe.
betts and jordan getting those goalline touches makes it harder for the main RB to get points in the fantasy world.

there seems to be alot of teams with this scenario...

hows about a list of those temas who will have these committees...

BALT/ lewis...he's safe
BUF/ henry...he's safe...granted w/mcgahee, maybe not this yr.
CIN/ dillon...he's safe
CLE/ green...he's safe
DEN/ portis...he's safe...without injury anderson has been proven
HOU/ mack...guess he's safe...then there's wells, overall nothing
IND/ james...he's safe...without injury rhodes has been proven
JAC/ taylor...he's safe...without injury toefield has alot of talk
KC/ holmes...he's safe
MIA/ williams...he's safe
NE/ a.smith & k.faulk...
NYJ/ martin...he's safe...granted jordan wants it to
OAK/ garner...he's safe...without injury wheatley has been proven
PIT/ zereoue & bettis
SD/ tomlinson...he's safe
TEN/ george...he's safe...without injury holcombe is waiting
ARI/ e.smith & shipp
ATL/ dunn & duckett
CAR/ davis...he's safe...any back up..?
CHI/ thomas...guess he's safe...then there's peterson
DAL/ hambrick...he's safe...any back up..?
DET/ bryson & gary
GB/ green...he's safe...have to mention davenport
MIN/ chapman & williams & smith
NO/ deuce...he's safe
NYG/ barber...he's safe...any back up..?
PHIL/ buckhalter & staley
SF/ hearst & barlow
SEA/ alexander...he's safe...any back up..?
STL/ faulk...he's safe...any back up..?
TB/ alstott & pittman
WASH/ candidate...he's safe...granted betts wants it


anyone have to add anything to this or have comments if i may be wrong in this...for even a big name to go down would hurt but i dont have all the back ups. hope this helps others as im sure this list could change or be updated.

so is it best to have the guarenteed starter or a split runner...

Clevelander, great post. Good reference material. Here's what I'm not sure about (and last night proved that you don't know until the real season actually gets under way) ....

Shared backfields that might be 1-man shows by Week 3:
DET: Gary (but who knows with Mooch at the helm)
MIN: O.Smith (again, who knows with mouthbreathing Mike Tice)
PHI: just not sure what's going on there at all

Certainly not safe based on what we saw last night:
WAS
NYJ

Probably safe, but might be scarier than we think:
CHI: A-Train doesn't seem safe to me at all
SEA: Might try to showcase/break-in M.Morris at some points
KC: Same goes for L.Johnson, but probably to a lesser extent

Gut feelings:
TEN: I see Holcombe stealing just a little bit to take the load of George
IND: I have an irrational fear that we haven't seen the last of Dominic Rhodes yet (though not in Wk 1 probably)



What do you guys think?
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

I think you guys are right on most but not all....

PHI....Buck will get some carries in the first two games but mark my words....by game 3...Duce will be the featured back, and duce will produce better numbers than Buckhalter this year.....about 850 yds and 6 td's...buck will be 450 and 4 td's.

CAR.....D.Foster might take some of Davis's carries by mid-season.

WASH....Candidate is a bust

SF....Barlow will get 3/4 of the carries by week 4

NYJ......Jordan will score twice as many times as Martin

Falcons.....Duckett will not put up good numbers

ARZ......Emitt will have abetter year than people think...Shipp will not do much

If DeSuan Foster is still out there i would seriously think about picking him up......i have a friend who is close to the Panther's organization and Del Rio is enamored with his potential.....he's looking to get Foster the ball like 10 times a game early....and Davis may not produce like people think this year when defenses are stacking 9 in the box against them (NO QB)....Foster is a lot quicker and a great reciever out of the backfield....Mark my words...D. Foster is the real sleeper this year...not O.Smith...

just got to make a mention of Garner in OAK. He too is in a RBBC. Tough when your RB is on the bench with the ball inside the 5.

I dont know, Ben, but some guy was on here recently singing the praises of DeShawn Foster. He could be gunning for Davis.

Gotta agree with you, Cornbread, about Garner. I think a lot of owners are going to be disappointed this year. Unfortunately, Wheatley (and Fargas?) and Crockett are going to take away too many YD's and TD's, respectively.
