#3 RB

Postby The Guru » Tue May 18, 2004 11:01 pm

Outside of say the top 20 RB's, who do you like?

Who are some good #3 RB's that you are targeting?

If you can, please give some reasoning behind your decisions.

Shipp and Barber are ranked in ESPNs top 20.

I like Thomas Jones, Julian Jones, Duce, CMart, TJ Duckett, and Chris Brown as a late sleeper candidate.

Duce and CMart.

Bettis took a paycut and knows hes the number two. Pitt will run a decent amount of screens and if you get points for receptions, Duce will be a very solid 3.

CMart is being let loose this year. Edwards has said he doesnt want to limit him early, thinking he may be getting too slow of a start. Whether or not this is the case is unknown, but at 3rb, ill gamble.

Shipp should have a good year, for some reason he just missed out on touchdowns last year, 830 yards and no TDs might just be bad luck. Going into the season as the noted starter, Dennis Green's great offensive system, and overall a pretty good offensive line, he could hit it big. Only potential problem is McCown stuggling.

...Add whoever wins the Cleveland RB job (Lee Suggs or William Green) to the list, methinks...

...Also Brian Westbrook...

In a TD heavy league, you might consider Greg Jones... expect him to steal TDs from Taylor regularly.

The Florida Times-Union reports Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio envisions Jones as a Mike Alstott-type back. The newspaper said to expect Jones and Fred Taylor to line up in the backfield together in short-yardage situations.
Our purpose on this planet is to laugh. For in Hell we shall not be able to and in Heaven it would not be proper.

The usuals come to mind but i really think after Staphen Davis suffers his potential career ending injury early in the year that Deshaun Foster will shine big!!! This would of course be a late late round selection but could pay off huge. William Green, Duce Staley, and Eddie George all are coming in with a chip on their shoulder with something to prove so one of th ethree is a lock to have a big season.
