Cleve RBs - Harrison or Hillis?

Postby Stelly » Tue Sep 21, 2010 9:25 am

The RB situation in Cleveland seems to be quite a mess. Harrison seems to be the most talented RB on the roster, but he really seems to like to fumble. Hillis seems to be running the ball better (better YPC), and is getting the TD opportunities, and is a good receiver.

Who is the fantasy back to own in this mess? Are either of them more than a RB4?

As I speculated last week, it looks like James Davis will start seeing some carries this week. The Browns are facing Baltimore so there's a good chance no Browns RB will be productive but if Davis shows something, he could carve out a large role going forward.

I have to believe that over the course of the season Jerome will have better numbers. That said, if I had both and was forced to go with one, Hillis is the one I'd be starting right now. After Harrison's tremendous finish to the 09 season, I really expected him to come roaring out of the gate in 2010 and that's not what happened. Hillis seems to have the coaching staff's trust right now, but is an underwhelming flex option for the moment. If I could, I'd avoid starting either guy, but I do hold out some hope that Jerome will get it together and become an RB2 option at some point. Just don't punish your lineup by starting him until he proves he can do it.

Agree that Harrison seems like the long term value. I, however, have no problem starting Hillis as long as he's putting the ball in the endzone. TD's are welcome in my flex spot. If Hillis falls out of the coaching staffs hearts, do him no favors. Ride him while you can though.

I think this week Hillis defied expectations and proved that he can carry the load, so no. I've never been a Hillis guy. I am now. Too bad I don't have him on a single team.

Hillis should hands-down be the man to own in Cleveland now. If he's on any WW this week, he NEEDS to be owned. He could be a high-end RB2 this year.

Hillis for sure from here on out. The only issue is that he takes a major pounding during the game and there is the risk of injury.
