This one's really close. I'm surprised that you have enough RB depth that one of these guys is sitting on your bench, telling me that you drafted too many RB in the early rounds and probably have a weakness in another position like WR or QB. Anyways, I'd go with DeAngelo here, as I've never been impressed by Knowshon as a runner and we still want to see what the committee situation shapes up like in Denver. While DeAngelo will also split carries, he's a more prolific runner with greater potential.

Just saw that you posted your roster. I'd be concerned about Blount, as his coach has gone on record saying that he's going to be in a RBBC situation and Graham will be the third down back.

I would usually go with D-Will but I guess it would be safer to hold on and see how that offense runs for week 1. Moreno is probably safer though I think Williams has more upside.

Yeah I am concerned about that, but I think it's just more of a cautious approach. Plus he still isn't the best pass blocker on third downs. I see him getting 15-20 carries a game like he did last year if not more.

Is Mike Williams my best option in the flex spot over Knowshon?
