Duckett
Dunn
Canidate
Betts

Duckett is gonna get more run opportunities and be featured more

Dunn will still catch passes, especially when Vick returns

Canidate and Betts is a crapshoot. I think Canidate has a few big runs coming, but Betts is getting his share and has been arguably a bit better FF-wise.

Duckett -- will continue to get more touches as Atl needs to control the clock and keep their D off the field
Dunn -- if Vick is effective when he comes back and wants a back to throw too. If Vick takes awhile to get into stride (most likely), then see Duckett
Betts/Candidate -- neither, Wash shows no signs of leaning in a direction yet. A better choice would be Brian Westbrook from Phila -- touches should continue to increase
QB: A. Brooks; P. Ramsey

I would say:
Duckett, he is becoming the featured back
Candidate, he is in there more than others
Dunn, he will catch passes when Vick comes back
Betts, he is just a goal-line back.

actually, Canidate only has one more carry than Betts, and Betts has caught more passes. If anyone would be considered the "goal line back" I would say it was Rock Cartwright.

DUKE, I had not realized that, thanks for pointing it out. I looked at the stats and you are right.

I'm gonna have to mildly disagree with a few people here. I think if Vick coming back helps Atlanta be more competitive, it will be good for Duckett, not Dunn.

Duckett has started the last few games, but Dunn is clearly the better receiver. Hence, when Atlanta falls behind by 3 scores, which they seem to be doing every game, Dunn comes in. Case and point, Duckett got the majority of the carries last week against Minnesota in the first half. Then, Minni exploded in the 3rd quarter and took a huge lead, and Duckett had only one or two carries in the second half while Dunn ended up with 80+ yards receiving.

I think if Vick can keep the Falcons in games, and they're not forced to drop back and wing it in the second half every game, that Duckett can actually finish a game, rather than just starting it.

That's all speculation of course, with Atlanta's D, maybe even Vick won't be able to keep them in games.

Although your post makes no sense considering we are trying to discuss who will have the best fantasy numbers the rest of the year...
