More praises for Bennett

One of the things I would like to remind people of was last yr MIN was in a RBBC by force. Their primary back went down, and they were forced to play Moe more than they wanted to IMO. Sure, he filled in nicely, but this yr they have their goto RB, and a 3rd down back - not to mention their real goalline threat - CPepp. I think Moe will be almost completely fased out. He wasnt supposed to be much more than a backup RB from the beginning.

He'll be 30 on my birthday (end of July).

I don't know if Smith is a "power" back to really pound it in at the goal line, but he is 220 pounds - heavier than Bennett or Moe. I think Tice will end up using Moe and Smith in the red zone since both backs are capable (since Bennett will get the major carries they have to use them somewhere) and Moe is a very good receiver out of the backfield which can be useful for screens near the line.

I am not saying I want him to be president, but I would take him as a later drafted second running back.

Transition maybe?

And anyone who believes a word out of Tice's mouth hasn't learned their lesson...

I am pretty high on Bennett this year. Sure I have the same concerns everyone else about him losing tds, but I think he will offset that some with his longer touchdowns.

Now does he have more upside than Barlow?

He was a 5th rounder after the season ended and has crept into the 3.04 position on antsports mock drafts going as high as 2.01 in twelve team leagues. Sleeper no more.

Getting a little off topic thanks to some spamming...remember, Bennett is the next king. All bow down and worship the Vikings..something like that...
