Its clear that the Dolphins are having serious offensive problems, especially with the offensive line. The move to Harrington at QB may improve the situation slightly but Ronnie is still going to struggle. Bell on the other hand is in a great situation. He has solidified himself as the top RB in denver, and has produced well when featured as the number one back. I wouldn't be surprised if bell is a top 5 RB from here on out.

Tatum Bell by FAR. Bell is so underrated its ridiculous. The guy can flat out play. The only reason he didn't start before was because of his size. They thought he wouldn't be able to last with his size. Fact is this, he is tough. Plus with the situation he is in in Denver, he most definately will succeed. Brown will in my opinion go for 1000yds this season but not too much more. Miami just can't put it together.

Brown. Bottom line, Bell doesn't score, so the yardage difference is easily compensated. Also, Brown is good for 30+ receiving yards a game in most cases.

In my main league with very standard scoring (10yd=1pt,TD=6, no PPR) Bell is averaging 8 points per game to Brown's 11. Brown is the 9th ranked RB, between LT2 and Fred Taylor. Bell is the 33rd ranked back on the season, between Jamal Lewis and Lamont Jordan.

Granted Bell's played one less game, but I think it's clear he's purely a yardage back who will come out of the year with 1400 total yards and maybe 5 scores. I would take Ronnie Brown's 1000-1100 total yards (pessimistic yardage total) and 10 TD any day.

Doesn't score or hasn't scored?

Tatum's had the featured back role for TWO games this season...against two tough defenses in NE and BAL...and ran 123 yards and 92 yards respectively.

If you truly think that the featured back in Denver will not score a single touchdown this season, you're nuts.

I'm going with Brown. I'm just too leery of the Denver RB situation from the past. I play in mainly PPR leagues, and Brown has been performing fairly well in them because of all of his receptions.

Looks like Tatum Bell is well on his way to be the leading rusher in the NFL this season. Can't believe it is finally happening. I guess it all WAS a ploy to motivate Tatum by Shannahan. I'll finally admit that I know NOTHING about Denver RBs.

Ps- See my Ron Dayne=top10 RB thread. ;-7
