He could be a nice pickup in PPR considering his dual eligibility at WR and RB in Y! leagues.
I also read he was on the field for about 95% of the offensive snaps and appears to be their slot rec. By all accounts, he had a very productive preseason as well.
I'm contemplating using the #1 WW priority on him in 1 league (full PPR) where RB is my weakest position, hoping for "Sproles-lite" type of production.
Granted it's only week 1, but the utilization of the slot rec. and hybrid type guys seems to be the growing fad in the new pass happy NFL and to a degree, act as an extension of the running game...
Randall Cobb in GB
McCluster in KC
Sproles in NO
Harvin in MIN
Welker in NE
Amendola in STL
Rodgers in ATL
To name a few, some of the names are already stallwarts in the fantasy game and the other very well could be sooner rather than later.
