Thanks in advance
For me when I'm looking for a backup I'm looking for the guy with the most upside, period. Which is the opposite of what I do in say round 1 when I'm looking to play it VERY safe. For me based on upside I would rank them such.
1. Giovani Bernard: This guy has major upside, ya I know the law firm is still penciled in as the starter but who cares. Bernard is a rare talent, BJE isn't. Think Spiller/Fred Jackson. Although Fred is a better RB than BJE it's a fair comparison of what the situation was last year and we all know how that turned out. I'm not saying Bernard is as talented as Spiller, he isn't, but he's still a very talented RB who's value can far exceed his ADP.
2. De Williams: He finished strong last year and now he does not have to split carries with Stewart for at least half the season, even when or if Stewart return if De is running strong it will not end up being a time share situation again.
3. Rashard Mendenhall: He's an OK RB on a team that will run the ball and he has very little competition for carries. He's nothing special but he's a starting RB that will carry the work load, that has value.
4. Daryl RIcharson: He's on a team that will try to run the ball often but I'm not convinced this guy keeps the job or that he's anything special, but for now the job is his and as with Mendenhall that alone has value.
5. Shane Vereen: I think this guy is being WAY over hyped. For me a nice late round lottery ticket, nothing more.
