If you ignore the games at the end of the year he wasn't healthy and nobody started him, he got 1250 total yards and 9 TDs in 12 games. Yes please, more of that. Spend a 13th rounder on Choice for the RZ handcuff and it seems you are guaranteed >> 10 TDs over the year and about 1500 total yards. TO gone, Roy being hurt, and Felix's toe... this all seems like good news to me for Barber owners.
That's the thing, in general I don't think people are down on him which is why he is going in the second round. I personally just think that is a bit to high. Roy being hurt/TO being gone certainly is not a good thing for MBIII though, RBs are only made better by productive receivers that force teams to respect the pass and not load the box.
I've seen him falling quite a bit in drafts actually...which is why I've been able to grab him in a lot of drafts. The only drafts I've seen him go in the 2nd round in are the one's where I've drafted him in the 2nd as my RB2.
Hmm maybe my calibration is off then, must have been popular in the leagues I've drafted because he's always gone early 2nd in my leagues. I would consider nabbing him late 2nd early third.
