I think it's pretty clear that Antowain Smith will get the majority of the carries in NO until further notice. Could be for the rest of the year, it could be for half of the first quarter against Atlanta.. Personally, in the league where I owned Deuce, I'm starting Antowain as my #3 RB this week over Mike Anderson.
Furthermore, I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is and predict that Antowain Smith will get enough looks to outscore Curtis Martin for the rest of the year if he hangs onto the starting job.
Smith's not a waiver wire stud, but he can definitely help out a team hurting at RB. Hope you were quick to the wire if you're thin at RB...
Stecker is fool's gold. He's good in passing situations and that's about it. Antowain Smith gets it done in short yardage and can take a pounding. And That is exactly what New Orleans needs right now IMO.
A.Smith - workhorse
Stecker - 3rd down
Chatman - insurance
