Yes, the passing TD counts, but if you are drafting RB's based on how many TD's they throw, you are misguided.
Here is an example of how expectations taint our viewpoint.
RB "A" - 5 games, 90 attempts, 5.1 average, 457 yards and 2 TD
RB "B" - 5 games, 72 attempts, 5.5 average, 397 yards, and 1 TD
The first back is considered disappointing and the second is having a surprising year. Why? Expectations.
"A" is Tomlinson. "B" is Anthony Thomas.
I am not crying in my post-draft beer, I - and many others - still expected more from him. Is he a great back? Yes. Is he having a great fantasy year? No. I know that production will increase because of his talent, but I was simply making an observation that I would like him to score some more TD's - starting this week.
Is there a single FF player out there that doesn't wish for the same from his players?
