I don't like the situation for CJ3 at this point. Over the past few years, it has been near impossible to predict which Titans RB will get the carries from week-to-week. They now have three young RBs, and CJ does not look to be the guy that will get the premium touches near the goal line, and due to the youth of the guys they have, it's unlikely that the situation will change over the next 2-3 years.

Kevin Smith will be the starter from day one in an offense that is going to focus on running the ball. I know it's Detroit, and that's a risk, but at least then there is some predictability from week-to-week so you can make lineup decisions.

I voted Kevin Smith. Even though Detroit always sucks and he isn't the best rb of the choices above, I think he is in the best situation to get the rock.

A bit slow but plays faster than he times. He will probably have trouble getting around the corner and be more of an inside runner.

I really think that it depends on league settings. I am in a 12 Team PPR league where I have Chris Johnson, and would take him over K Smith because of the fact that it is a PPR league and we get 1 pt/15 return yards. If it is strictly a TD and no PPR league then Kevin Smith's value is much greater. Watching Kevin Smith in college, however, he just seemed to not be that explosive. We'll see how he transitions, but I do not see the next great RB in Smith especially now that Martz is gone.
