If the answer to that question isn't clear by draft day, you probably don't need to draft either one. I doubt very much that anybody else would touch them unless it were a very deep league. Just snag one of them off of FA when a clear backup is established. ;-D

Seabass, that was a good post. I wonder if Linehan is just talking the player up, or if he values his role as a 3rd down back so much that he would supplant SJax.

Honestly, I can't see it. When you need the score, you give it to SJax. He creates waaay more problems for defense than Moe. I could be wrong though. I still doubt anybody but Sjax owners draft him.

mikus, over in the other thread you stated Williams would steal 4 TD's and now it's up to 5? Seriously, where do you cook this stuff up?
Why would St. Louis deny a bigger and more talented back any goal-line carries? Besides, Linehan has said absolutely nothing that would lead anyone to believe he will be stealing any goal-line situations from Jackson. In addition, Williams is injury prone. Case-closed, end of story. :-D

When you read today's news, it doesn't sound like they consider either Williams or Fisher as being a potential #2 RB and that they're still shopping around for a #2

Yeah I got a little excited with the five TDs. I will stick with four.

I am just saying watch this closely in preseason. Linehan has a history with Moe, so he knows more than anyone what Moe is good at doing. All I remember most about Moe Williams was how he stole TDs from other Vikings running backs.
