well look at the box score.....addai carried it 24 times, rhodes 15, and peyton threw 20 passes. Most games are not gonna have peyton throwing so few passes....addai can still get good fantasy stats with a goal line TD or somehting, but today is just a one time bonus for people who decided to start him imo.

I find it strange that in a recent thread about top 10 RBs next season, Maroney was mentioned several times, including as high as 5th, but Addai wasn't mentioned at all, especially since Addai had more rushing yards, more receiving yards, and more TDs at that point than Maroney.

Now Addai has 179 more rushing yards and 222 more combined yards, and leads Maroney in TDs 8 to 5. Maybe he'll crack some lists now?

While Addai's usefulness will continue to be curtailed by Rhodes' timeshare, (I see it in the neighborhood of 60-40 in Addai's favor), he will continue to be an extremely dangerous RB2 option. Dungy sees the future in Addai and understands that he will need to limit Addai's touches to keep him fresh for the playoffs. But Addai will still be used at all the critical points (3rd down, goal-line, etc.) of the game and will remain extremely fantasy relevant.

I think I could name ten RBs I would rather have right now, but I doubt I could find 15.

One could argue that Addai has been eased into the season, and is quite fresh, if not peaking during the last fourth of the season.

In Yahoo standard scoring thus far:

LT 235 pts
LJ 164
FWP 123
Westy 112
SJax 108
MB3 98
Addai 97
Rudi 96
Gore 95
Deuce 92

It's not unrealistic to see him as a top ten back at the end of the season. He's fresh, he's still learning, he's got a pretty soft schedule...

Yahoo standard isn't the standard around here I know that. The most common is going to be the 10/1 with 6 TDs.

LT
LJ
Westy
SJax
Fast Willy
Gore
Barber
CTaylor
RJohnson
Addai

That makes him 10th in the list so far. But there's a few more guys right now I would take ahead of him:

SA
Portis
A healthy KJ and FFT

But after that I'd be hard pressed next year to take anyone else before Addai.

The only thing I see bright in the future right now is that Addai will most likely be the ROTY if he can grab atleast 3 more TDs by seasons end.

Yahoo Standard Scoring is terrible. I don't understand why they undervalue yards so much. They would do well to switch to the normal 10/1 and maybe even 4pt/Pass TD.

And as for Portis, he's out for the season so we'll have to wait until next year to rank him.

i hate the 4 pt pass td. I think rbs get overvalued relative to real life enough as it is.

I do agree that yards are devalued to the point that for qb's it takes a 300 yard game to equal one td by someone else. pretty silly.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

It's already the conventional wisdom around here to never take a QB before rounds 6-8, and you suggest we make QBs less valuable? :-t

Addai, along with Maroney, are going to be sitting very high on my draft lists, next year. They are both going to be major studs.
