your right, why would shanny let an undrafted RB get 20 carries a game, thats unheard of for the Broncos, I doubt we ever see them do anything along those lines

I have Henry in a 14 team league where solid RBs are obviously impossible to come by, and Henry was my 1st round pick (11th). The real question is: is Young worth my #4 waiver wire priority at this stage? We go to first come, first serve free-agency style waivers tomorrow at 4pm, and as of now I'm still undecided. If I don't do it, I pray that nobody else does so I can pick him up. DeDe Dorsey is eating up valuable space on my roster :-b

Shanny did it before with Mike Bell who was at that time an undrafted rookie RB. He called on him to be the starter last Aug 2006 when he got disappointed with the performance of Tatum Bell. B-)

I think that's what LS2 was referring to. He was laying it on pretty thick. B-) :-b

and not to forget what Shanny did to Ron Dayne too. He cut him when he got hurt... so the pattern is there and their RBs maybe are already familiar with Shanny's criteria for naming a starter. If you get hurt, you're out. If you have fumbleitis, you're out. If you can't run, you're out.

I had 13th pick so my choices for rbs worthy of high round picks were slim.

Thats my point, shanny cares nothing about where you were drafted, nash is one example...but so is olandis gary, droughns, t. davis, some backs you never even heard of again aside from the one huge year they had in denver...so its completely not out of the chance selvin young starts to get alot of carries, he doesnt care about fantasy football and sticking to a sure thing, the last time they had a sure thing was terrell davis, even last yr when they "tried" to act like tatum was the feature back after switching week in and week out, mike bell still ended up with games with two td's, and alot more productive then the probably more talented tatum bell...


so lets not rule out anything in denver, young is worth keeping, but to answer skins fanatic's question...

I have Henry in a 14 team league where solid RBs are obviously impossible to come by, and Henry was my 1st round pick (11th). The real question is: is Young worth my #4 waiver wire priority at this stage?



IMHO no, even though you have young...but honestly you could still jump on young if something changes drastically, like he has a big game or shanny announces he wants him to have a generous amount of carries, im in a 14 league myself and that WW priority can make or break a season down the line, ive seen it happen, its still early, and when an injury happens or something you will find something a little more valuable to use that waiver for, id hold off if you think your leagues not hot on him, but if you really want him just take him, eventually your priority will get back down
