He is a injury risk, he is a heartbeat away from suspension, he plays for a wacky coach, How many times has he finished in the top 10?????? Most books had him ranked at like 50th RB or greater last year. Now I don't like those books, but come on 50th or greater. Now why would you take him over Rudi, who is a top ten every year? He may prove to a good pick, but he is not a good value pick that high. I would take a safer pick.
he was ranked that low based on who he played for and his situation at that point.he certainly didn't finish 50th now did he? you can't take last year into consideration when someone has moved back into a starting role for a team that churns out top running backs year after year. i'm not advocating taking him in the first at all but you should be able to get him in the second at worst and there he makes a solid pick . you can't say just because last year he was ranked low that that carries into this year.
and as AZ said shanny only put up with the RBBC because he didn't have a guy who was a feature since portis left. TD and portis both carried the load and that's what shanny wants .
