Now does he have more upside than Barlow?


I like Bennett as a back, but I won't have him on my fantasy roster. Too much unclear with the RB situation in Min and too many lost TDs.

I agree. Bennet is not guaranteed anything in Minnesota. He's going to have to produce to keep the majority of carries in this RBBC. If he misses even one week and the Viking's start another player, Bennet may not be the starter when he comes back.

Their line is just that good. Similar deal in Denver......whoever gets the majority of the carries will do well. But at least we know in Minny who the starter is. I'm with everyone else. Bennett will produce as a #2 back.

Bennett would be a top 10 back if he didn't have his goalline carries taken away. So explosive.

I have never questioned his speed at all..just his ability to be a solid #2 back on a team. If he gets the carries and doesn't lose all the TDs I think he will be a solid #2.

Wow, a few good reports and everyone is on the Bennett bandwagon!! Remember a few things:

- He is the fastest man in the NFL. Very few know this.

- Because of this he will get TD's if healthy simply because of his ability to break the long run to the house. No Moe, Smith, or C-Pepp able to steal those TD points.

- Moe is getting older, and he is not going to be used as much.

- Ontario is the real deal and if Bennett gets injured again, Smith is the man who will gain from it big time.

- But Bennett IS injury prone. As much as I like him and as great as he is when healthy, I just don't believe he'll be there the whole year.

Therefore, I am very cautious about ranking him too high. A risky pick.
