I think he's got a great chance to do some very big things. I worry about his body holding up for a full load though. He has to prove he can do it first for me, but most people say he's going to be a very good #2 RB. I see him being used in the passing game almost as much as running.

His coach has committed to emphasizing the run a lot more, and he's got a great offensive line and LJ's blocking fullback (Richardson). I think he could surprise some people this year if he works hard and plays to his potential (and if his offensive unit does the same). He's one the the guys I have targeted in my draft. Depending on how things are going, I'll be looking for him in round 4 or 5.

I honestly see Mewelde Moore and Ciatrick Fason cutting a lot into his carries.

There's a good reason why the Ravens chose a banged up Lewis over Chester Taylor.

I don't see much upside for a perennial backup who was a 6th rd pick. I see more upside for Fason as a goalline RB.

Last I heard is Taylor was out of shape and was having trouble with the playbook.

The coaches seemed a little concerned about his work ethic.

I think he is risky. Moore is decent especially in a RBBC situation.

Taylor is going to be solid all year for us, I have no concerns about that.

I'm very excited about chester this year, I think he could put up huge numbers, and I've targeted him in a couple of drafts this year, and had to get him in the 3rd.

Priest Holmes was a "perennial backup" until he got the nod out in KC, and he was an UNDRAFTED free agent when he got into the league... Strangely enough, it was the Ravens that he played for before he exploded onto the fantasy scene as well... Hmmmm.....

Shhh! Another Holmes, Jordan sitting there for you in RD3. Not at all worried about about the load or Faison. They tried Faison last year as a goal line back. Misserable results. I may be mistaken but I think CT is bigger than Faison so why put him in?

And no, he will not put up Holmes #'s but Jordan #'s are certainly predicatable.

He's a ??? IMO. Could be HUGE (that line with the addition of Hutch plus Richardson should open some holes) or could fall fat (pun intended) on his face (the negative press gives me pause). As an RB2 he's risk/reward.

That being said, I have him ahead of Droughns (after the Bentley Injury) and Dunn, and neck-and-neck with JLew (who I have a hunch is gonna have a big year).

If you go WR in the second (or even third, depending on your draft), you could do worse, but until he shows it on the field it's a risky pick.
