Keep 1: Blount, Helu, or McGahee

Postby Shark1225 » Thu Feb 16, 2012 8:56 pm

I have 2 in Victor Cruz and Jimmy Graham but for my third a would like a RB. The cost is a 15th rounder for Blount, 8th for Helu and 9th for McGahee so I am not too worried about that I just want the most production. I could take Peyton Manning with my third also.

Blount is 10 times as valuable if the Bucs have a lead which they should have more next year.
Helu is in Shanny's offensive so you never know there.
McGahee is old and Moreno will be healthy again.

You just never know what Shanahan is going to do with his RB's, but I think helu is the best choice. He will get you points rushing a receiving.

I'm not real fond of any of those RBs, but I would choose Blount.

I do have a few more options: Ryan Williams, Bradshaw, McCluster, BGE, or Dalton.
Williams will cost me a 7th
Green-Ellis a 3rd
Bradshaw a 1st (6th overall)
McCluster a 15th
Andy Dalton a 15th

Helu and Blount are looking better and better, lol.

Question: What would Newton cost you? Remember he runs as well as throws and gets redzone td's (at least last year he did) and he outrushed most of the rb's you mentioned.

I would go Helu, much more questions surrounding Blount. I think that Bucs will bring in another RB through the draft or through Free Agency.

I think its beween Blount and Helu. I think the questions surrounding the Bucs is where the hell did thier offense go? Playing from behind doesn't entirely help the run game. Blount showed flashes of his rookie campaign, but that was about it. Helu seems to be a "high risk/high reward" type player. The risk comes from whether or not he'll be the starter week to week. But IF he is, he's shown he can run and catch. I think Helu's value is higher if the risk of him not being an every day starter wasn't there. But I'd probably go with Helu.

Uh, yeah, that was my preseason roster. I laughed at that when I posted I ended the year with Graham and 2 RB's out of that the rest where released or traded. We drafted right after the third preseason game and I dropped Newton right before game 1, when he had 40% completion percentage in the preseason and I already had Kolb to backup Brady.

I didn't have a good season, due my RB's sucking early and Johnson going down shortly after and my inexplicable ability to be facing the team that scored the most points that week. After 2 weeks I was 4th in points yet 0-2.

I wouldn't want to deal with the Shannanigans so id steer clear of Helu, go with Blount. Although, Dalton is intriguing with rookie year under his belt and with weapons like Green and Simpson and the chemistry they will have together and IF they happen to land Trent Richardson (which a lot of mocks have them doing), that will only help and raise the value of Dalton. He put up some pretty decent numbers his rookie year. Best of luck!
