If he was dealt to GB, I would probably place him early to mid-3rd. A starting RB who can run and pass is extremely valuable, but I would have to temper expectations as he hasn't carried a full load yet. Perhaps numbers comparable to Chester Taylor.
He carried a lot more of a full load than Taylor did before he took over as a starter. I think Betts could carry the load, he did so for a good amount of the season last year on his way to running for over 1000 yards.
He definitely did. I'm not trying to compare him to Taylor, because I think Betts could be a better feature back, but I think his numbers in Green Bay would be around the 1,250 yards rushing, 500 yards receiving, 6-8 TD range.
