Is Ahman going to be any good this year? He just seems like the type of running back that doesn't get hyped a whole lot but lives up to that by doing sub-par. I just can't feel good about drafting him.

I think Ahman is a bit underrated this year. Age is the only thing that concerns me. He certainly has the talent and Houston is underrated as a place for FF RBs.

He seems to be going in round 4 or later, which is great for a sure-fire starting RB.

So you think that since people are taking him that he will be a good value pick for later on? I didn't even think about that... hmm.

Definitely underrated, he is a good back when healthy and he is the undisputed starter in Houston. I don't know if I would want him as anything more than a 3rd back unless I had LT though.

as mentioned earlier, he is no doubt underrated, and as also mentioned earlier age is a bit of an issue as well as injuries, so while he can be a big risk, he could have a large reward as well.

His age, injury history, and the fact that he now in HOU will lead people away from him. But I see it differently. Unless he goes down, he will be a full-time RB. Sure, he may not get all the TD's you want, but the touches will be there. He will be severely underrated in a redraft league.

I've seen AGreen being undervalued in almost every draft I have done. He is the undisputed starter and that is a huge plus.

There are some age concerns and injury concerns, but those are question marks which IMO is better than being in a RBBC for the most part.

I like AGreen anytime around the middle of the fourth and later. I wouldn't want him as my 2RB without a platoon of RBs behind him with upside, but as a 3RB, matchup guy, or flex option; I am really liking him this year.

His upside is certainly limited though, but relative to where he's going in drafts, his value right now seems very good.

i see green kind of falling in with dunn, f taylor and some other aging rb's, probably in the 4th-5th round. out of that group though i would def take a green

I think in a 12 teamer, Ahman would be a steal as a 3rd rb. In a 10 teamer, you may be able to get a surer thing as your 2nd rb. But I do feel he is certainly underrated, and will do better than most people believe he will this year. Just how good?

I would stay away from him. Unless I could use him as a backup to my top two RB's. Dont know how far he'll fall this season on the draft boards but it will be interesting to see.
