Addai's presence makes me nervous and at least Gore has his job outright.

Thanks.


I would have to keep Gore. Your team is that good that those are your worse players?

No, not quite like that, sadly. In our league you get to keep one of the players you drafted in one of the last two rounds LAST year. My last two picks last year were Rhodes and Gore.

Thanks for the help.

as bad as SF is, Gore is still the primary back. I would rather have him than a guy who is sharing carries. He is a solid #3 RB in leagues with a flex. Maybe a bit of a reach in a #2 RB spot, but could suprise people.

He could have a very solid year. He did finish real strong last season. He could stay healthy and be a stud this season. But so could Fred Taylor.

Even with a "could" hypothetical there, using the word "stud" just seemed funny to me.

If we start describing Gore as a "stud", then I need to find a new word for SA, LT & LJ. The word "stud" is getting about as devalued as "supermodel" these days.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

I have Gore as my RB3.
Would you consider Hicks a mandatory handcuff or is the gap between the two so great that it's not worth it?

the enigmatic passing offense should hinder his scoring chances. bump him on yardage for obviously not having to share a decent portion of his carries.

Does 1200/5 sound too unreasonable? That should put him right around 15RB.

That's right about where I have him. Maybe 100 fewer yards, give or take, but a good #2 no doubt.
