What does everyone think of this guy? I think Gore looked slow in his preseason debut and I believe his carries will decline significantly. LaMichael James is definitely not built like an every down back, and with the injury to Brandon Jacobs, Hunter should benefit the most. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Gore missed a few games this season with injuries and rest, especially towards the end of the season - just in time for fantasy playoffs.
With that being said, I've already picked him up one league and I'm seriously thinking about picking him up in my other leagues as well before anyone else catches on.
Does anyone agree here agree with me? Or am I being way too optimistic?
I'm in a standard scoring league with seven bench spots. Starting lineup consists of one QB, two RBs, two WRs, one RB/WR flex spot, a TE, DST, and K. I have five RBs and five WRs. My WRs are my strength, so I'm thinking of dropping Greg Little for Hunter. Would you do it?
At RB I feel like I'm a bit thin. I have Matt Forte, Marshawn Lynch, Jonathan Stewart, Michael Bush and Donald Brown. I feel good about Forte. Lynch is a bit of a wildcard, Stewart is hurt, Michael Bush is a handcuff for Forte and Donald Brown has never really proved himself fully at the NFL level. At WR I have Percy Harvin, Brandon Marshall, Dez Bryant, Torrey Smith, and Greg Little. I like Little, but I feel like he could be a "boom or bust" type of guy, especially with a rookie QB. Kendall Hunter might prove to be inconsistent as well, but I feel like my WR corps is stronger than my RB corps.
