1. i think hes still on that big-ass contract of his.
2. he lead this league in rushing and carries a time or 2.
3. he can pick up NFL blitzs.
and most importantly
3. He only had 1 less carry than Ronnie this week.
that tells me that while his numbers have been rubbish so far, he is getting as much of an opportunity as the so called 'starter'. id be worried and would be selling Ronnie Brown in every league that isnt a keeper league.
I agree with that. Just as name players command value in fantasy sports, Ricky being a name player certainly helps his chances for playing time. I think Ricky will be given every opportunity to get a good amount of PT and should end up doing so. Coaches always seem to trust experienced vets like Ricky, even if he smokes a whole lot of weed.
I would trade Brown if his value is high now. I smell an RBBC all the way through. I find it hard to believe that they'd just leave Ricky sitting on the bench for most of games.

And upon further review, just as sappy, too."
