Joseph Addai...

It looks like we no longer will have to worry about anyone preventing Addai from getting 20+ carries per game. He has two TD in the first 15:05. From here on out, is Addai a top-10 back?

Yah. Sure. Just like the other 15-17 Top 10 Backs the Cafe has floating around. ;-7

Seriously, he's looking good. I would slot into the, "Start with confidence against average defenses or worse" category.

He is looking good tonight and has a easy schedule from here on out(@Ten, @Jac, vs Cin, @Hou and vs Mia) but I think it's too soon to call him a top 10 back for the rest of the season. He should be a decent/good option for here on out though.

Make that 3TD and 100 yards in the first 1.5 quarters of the game.

Make that 4TD and 170 yards for the game.

That's a bold statement after one monster game. Let's hope he keeps it up!!! Honestly if he didn't have to share carries with Rhodes, he's a definite shoe-in for the LJ award.

They were playing one of if not the worst run defense in the league. The Colts' O-Line is awesome as well. He will not keep this up, especially if the Colts lock up home field. Yes, he did run very well today and obviously has good talent. But I don't see him scoring 3-4 TD's a game considering he only had three going into this one. However, if he does start getting the bulk of the carries, I'm sure his yardage and usefulness as a fantasy back for the next few weeks will increase.

I am not liking having Wayne (and Vinatieri to a lesser extent) on my team for the fantasy playoffs. Any Colts starter is a scary play. :-o

If he finally wrests a majority of the carries away from Rhodes, then he will likely be Top-15, but in all likelihood they will still split carries to keep both guys healthy for the playoffs. It sucks since Addai has such huge potential for the rest of the year, but tonight was not indicative of the types of efforts we should come to expect. In a keeper though, he has huge value.

Speaking of keepers. Right now I'm hanging onto Chad and Carson. Since I can only keep two players, should I swap out Chad for Addai?
