It would seem odd that the Colts all of the sudden dont have faith in him. Although it is curious that they picked Addai in the first. I was thinking he was more of a security blanket. Who else do they have behind Rhodes? I still cant believe Rhodes wont get the majority of the carries next year.
I agree with you, although I think if you draft Rhodes you HAVE TO handcuff Addai. Unfortunately Addai's going ahead of Rhodes in most drafts, so it's pretty much the other way around. At any rate, I expect Rhodes to start the season and get the majority of the snaps.
If you can get RHodes late in the draft, it's a great pickup because he will start the season and likely put up some numbers. His trade value will be at an all time high. Then you can trade him to the Addai owner or someone else and make out like a bandit before Addai starts taking over (if he does this year)
