good move...but now the real question is can Garner serve as a decent #2 FANTASY back???

well with Thomas Jones off to Chicago and Pittman most likely done and Gruden showing last year he was willing to run to win I think Garner will post some good rushing and recieving numbers. I would feel quite comfortable with him as a #2 back.

Except in a low yardage point league or TD only league.

I wish he would have gone to a team on the rise, instead of a washed up team like Tampa. Didn't the Bucs go to a SB way back when?
My Duce bet is on him ending up in the Steel city where he will get to play behind a suspect O-line. Should help the Stillers anyway.

I wouldn't want him as my No. 2 back in any leagues with less than 12 teams. Just look at the rosters in our 10 team mock. Can you seriously say you would rather start Garner over any of the guys in the starting positions? Maybe A-Train because of Jones coming in. You also might think about C-Mart.

In large leagues he might serve as an ok No. 2 for awhile, but he's too old to count on the whole year. Also consider that Alstott will score the close yardage TDs and that Pittman will figure into the equation. I might use him as a flex guy but that's about it.

definately a need for the bucs... and i think he should be a pretty good fantasy rb there. he ought to get a good amount of touches. hes a low end #2 and a very good #3 imo.
