I'll agree with the last 2 parts, but the first part one can say about nearly every rookie from last year. Only Matt Forte managed to run the ball more than 300 times, whereas Steve Slaton, Chris Johnson and Kevin Smith never got higher than 268. Most of the young RB class are risky in regards to 300 carries, but I will agree that the Saints are more likely to air it out than to lean on the run (aka Bears). Despite the public injury concerns, I'd still feel good about Thomas as a good RB2 along the likes of Addai during the Colts juggernaut a few years back.
Retired (temporarily?) from fantasy football.
