well, part of my fear with Slaton was Chris Brown poaching goal line carries, and as a result of the risk, I've been more down on Slaton than most. PPR I'd still lean w/ Slaton over BJ, but non PPR I would take a BJ.
I just read earlier this evening that this fear has been confirmed, as not only is Brown officially the short yardage back, but he is the red zone back....Uh oh for Slaton.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak admitted for the first time Thursday that Chris Brown is the team's goal-line back.
"Our goal is to use him basically as a short-yardage runner, a red zone runner and Steve's (Slaton) backup," revealed Kubiak. "He's shown flashes this preseason that he's still got it in him. That's important to our team." Kubiak's statement confirms the widely held speculation that Slaton would lose red zone touches to the bigger back. As a potential vulture, Brown gains some value in TD-heavy leagues Sep. 3 - 7:06 pm et
