i don't think duckett is as bad as everyone says. obviously he'll never be a go-to guy fantasywise, but he's OK, and he's the goal line back (when vick needs a rest)
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good

I don't like either, but Duckett will probably have more Fantasy Production. Dunn will see the ball a fair amount, but Duckett will be the goaline man and should have no problem putting it in the endzone. Watch out for Atlanta's rookie and Lee Suggs to make both people lose carries.

Id take Green very quickly. Reason being this:

Duckett - Never runs. Always seems to tip toe up to the line and that kills him. He has tried to play and just cant do it IMO.

Green - Has "personal" issues. Thats it. On the field he can play. Ill take that gamble.

He can play...but will he? I'm curious to see what the Browns will do with Suggs on the roster.

If you're conservative, take Duckett. He's big enough to punch it through the goaline, Dunn isn't. Plus, the arrival of O-line coach Alex Gibbs is going to open things up immensely for the running game. Duckett will be much more productive and consistent this season.

For the risk-taker, you might be willing to gamble on the "higher reward" in Green. If you'd rather have an explosive game here and there over steady production, Green's your man. He can rip off the big plays and probably is the greater talent between the two.........but oh those "ifs". If his head is on straight like he says it is.......If he's healthy, focused, and ready to play........If Lee Suggs will just roll over and let him regain the starting role. That's a lot of ifs.

Personally, I'd take Duckett over Green by about 5-6 rounds.

Same here. I'm not sure if Willie will ever get his head on straight.

I most certainly will not have W. Green on my team after last year. Duckett shouldn't be terrible tho

I would go with Duckett over green and probably have 10 rb's between the two.

I think Green could be a steal this season. And no I am not smoking a blunt!! :-°
I think he will drop like a baggie in the draft and may be around late. Suggs is unproven and Green could earn his job back. he did gain over 1,200 yards. In ATL Dunn was having a nice season before he got Taylored (injured) and Duckett saw time. And isn't Dunn more the style of RB that the new O-line coach likes? Duckett could have a reduced role. So gun to my head I take Green.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

i look for duckett to put up numbers around 900 yrds and 10-12 tds..probably better than most would think, but i dont think dunn will be that great of a factor (although i like him more than duckett), and as for green...man i dont even know where to start...
