he's not that big and was overrated at texas with injury history. Looks like he is 2 now and bell will get cut.

Travis Henry has an injury history anyway. I dropped Chris Brown for Selvin Young in one of my leagues. With Mike Shanahan u never know.

Im willing to bet you havent seen much of selvin young to be calling him overrated...When he came in as a freshman and was spelling Benson everyone could see the potential that he had, he had some injuries over time that hindered some of what he used to be able to do, but how does someone become overrated because they were hurt? He's great at catching out of the backfield, blocking, and he's a patient runner that waits for the whole to open up, all things the broncos need in an RB...Aside from that, right now he's healthier then hes ever been since his freshman year, his injuries are long behind him and is playing at 100%, but if those things scare you then I guess you guys wouldnt touch alexander or gore either because they were hurt before...


he's worth stashing if u have henry, if not id keep my eye out, i doubt they plan on splitting the load, but if henry gets nicked up, young could explode in that offense, but i wouldnt hold onto him unless it was a handcuff, otherwise id keep him on the watch list for an injury to henry

In one deep league I picked him up in case Henry goes down. With the way Shanahan uses RBs I figured having the Bronco's #2 wouldn't be a bad idea.

Any of the leagues i had Henry i grabbed him and if i didn't i looked to see if it was worth it on my roster and most leagues he was. If Henry were to go down he would have some big time value

I am torn between using my empty roster spot on Selvin Young and Kenton Keith. :-? :~(

Thoughts...?

I'm not buying this Selvin Young thing. Best case scenario Henry goes down and Young gets maybe half the carries. I doubt Shanny would give him full time duties.
