I'd rather have LT over either Addai or Braylon Edwards. LT has at least been usable on a weekly basis, whereas those two haven't done anything.
LT and Edwards don't belong in the same sentence. That being said, I am disappointed in his production, but he's definitely a viable option, as I haven't removed him from my lineup except for his bye. Could be one of the reasons that I was 5-8, but I have a good shot at playing for my league championship, and his consistent production was the main reason that I took LT. There were times last year where ADP went 45 points, others where he went for 4. With LT this year, he scored under 10 points for me once this year. Above 20 three times. If I can get 15 points a week out of all my players, chances are that I would have been 8-5 instead of 5-8
Rotoworld weighs in on whether LT was the "Least Valuable Player":
But my vote for Fantasy LVP? LaDainian Tomlinson. A likely 1,000 yard season and 8 (to-date) TDs, his stats will look passable on paper . . . but not for the consensus #1 overall pick. He flat-out killed owners this year because he was always in that frustrating "you can never bench him" category. I never hold fantasy grudges, but I'll never draft LT ever again. Ever.
LT A first rounder next year? Only in deep leagues. The following rb's will probably be ahead of him: Peterson, Westbrook, Slaton, C Johnson, Forte, Gore, DeAngelo, Jacobs, MJD, Portis, maybe S Jackson and Barber too. Throw in a Wr or two + Brees and maybe Peyton, and we're talking 2nd round for LT--maybe toward the middle. He went for over $100 in my $200 auction league, and I'm sure he'll go for about 50 or less next year.
