Dunn says the injury is about 90%. The Falcons still list Dunn as #1 on the depth chart over T.J. Duckett and it looks like he'll be fully ready by training camp. We'd take Dunn over Duckett for a value pick in fantasy leagues this season. Duckett is a poor fit for the West Coast offense.


With Dunn signed through '08, I wouldnt count on them throwing away Dunn either...good news for those who went on a limb for Dunn

Anyone remember how much Dunn tore it up right before his injury? Everyone seems to think Duckett will move into the starting RB position by default for some reason.

Last season the Falcon's sat that slow moving sloth Duckett on the bench and delegated his ass to goalline duties. Dunn is gonna be the man in Atlanta next year.

Who wouldn't?!

Anyway, between T.J. Duckett's plantar fascitis and Warrick Dunn's bad foot, they have two good feet between 'em.

Methinks (and hopes) they'll both be fine by the season opener because it would suck if they had to play Quincy Wilson or something.

A west coast offense? Atlanta is using a west coast offense now? When did they trade Vick then?

Give me a break.

I still say Duckett will be the man.

Doesn't the presence of Vick decrease the RB's opportunities? I have Dunn on my team and thinking of trading him for that reason. Vick is the best athlete on the team. His number will be called 80 - 90% of the time. Hello...a Tice quote!

I think Dunn will be the starter and I plan on drafting him as my No. 3 RB. He did really well in the 3 games before his injury... What round do you think Dunn will go in (not just a guess - mock drafters answer, please)

In the ten team mocks I've been participating in, I've seen him go as early as the ninth round and as late as the twelvth.

Are you completely high? Just before being drafted, Duckett clocked a sub-4.4 forty ... something like a 4.37 or something. Lets assume that he has somehow lost a step in the past 2 years, you're still looking at a 4.5 - 4.6 speed.

He may not be that effective yet, but he isn't slow.
