Onterrio Smith, Chris Brown or DeShaun Foster, who is better

Postby jeru » Sat Feb 14, 2004 8:58 pm

In a dynasty league, which of those three RBs would you rather have as a 12th round draft selection. Brown and the possibility he will take over for George or George will get released, Smith and the rumours Bennett will be traded, leaving SOD as the #1 RB in Minnesota, or Foster and the chance that Davis will be injured?

I already have Lewis, Alexander and Shipp as my 1, 2 and 3 backs.

Based on pure talent, I'd have to side with DeShaun Foster. He won't get an opportunity to be the full starter for another year or two though (or however long Stephen Davis is in town). I think he will get about a third of the carries next season.

If you want production as early as possible, I'd go with Chris Brown. Although Tennessee isn't looking too hot next year with all of the salary cap casualities that are sure to occur (Eddie George may be one of them), he will at least get about 50% of the carries.

Onterrio Smith is still unproven, IMO. He looked good whenever he's had an opportunity, but he's only been in limited action. Although he played great in the two games he started, I don't like to judge a player with that few games under his belt. Chances are, Michael Bennett won't be traded - and neither will Onterrio Smith. Bennett has proven that he can carry the load for an entire season and produce. Onterrio hasn't, but he has a nice salary given the production the team has received out of him. Also, teams don't want to trade for Onterrio as he is an unproven commodity. Smith's value next season is questionable, too. With Michael Bennett being so good between the 20s, and Moe Williams being a great goal line RB, it looks like Onterrio Smith may just spell Bennett after a long run, or as a third down RB.

I like Onterrio but I wouldn't draft him. Tice has come out and said that none of our RBs are going anywhere so don't count on SOD being the starter anytime soon. I would take Foster as Davis is getting old and he has a lot of talent.

deshaun...he will get more and more carries til he completely takes over-he has a lot of talent. id stay away of onterrio and the RB situation in MIN. as far as brown-he will take over for george in maybe another year. i dont see him having as much raw talent though. i think in the future foster is the way to go. ;-D

10 people in our league. We start 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, K, plus 6 defensive players, with the defensive and rookie drafts being held seperately, and 25 man total rosters, and we can keep up to 20 each year.
