Edited above but thought it was worth posting in a new post

Last year his yardage went ...

108
51
58
102
77
101
86
48
94
110
72
127
56
126
135
84

I like his TDs, but my league counts yards as well. In his defense, this yardage output is actually comparable to Ricky's in many cases. I just personally feel that Ricky will have an up year.

Doesn't look that bad to me. He had less than 50 yards in one game, ricky had less than 50 in three. Alexander had less than 70 yards in 4 games, Ricky had less than 70 in six.

Like I said, the yardage is actually comparable. Miami's offense last year floundered often. Seattle's seemed to soar.

I simply expect to see Ricky return to his form of 2 years ago. I think he can do it.

That's cool. The yardage was comparable mainly because Shaun gets a lot less carries than Ricky. Hurts his yardage totals but may help his longevity. Outside of Priest, I think he's one of the most consistant RBs in the league. No blow up games but also very few stinkers.

I actually have Alexander ranked ahead of both Ricky AND Deuce. I think he's primed to take it to the next level this season. But I think you'll be happy with either one. Both look to have good years.

The reason that Ricky was top 3 last year is that he was getting one a week. I could set my watch to it.

Then this last year the O-line was pushed a yard back at the snap and there wasn't much Ricky could do about it.

IMO the addition of V Carey is the best offseason move. So the question seems to be will he be good enough right away to anchor the O-line around. To me it seems that one new G is not going to open; Ricky, Chris, David, and whoever starts at QB. It might be but if I were in a re-draft league I would probably take Alexander b4 Ricky.

The Dolphins O-line is much improved. V. Carey should step in at Tackle, and they also got Jeno James a very good guard, in free agency. This is a much different line then it was last year. I see much improved numbers for Ricky, and IMO, getting him at #8 in any draft is a steal

It all depends on Boston, IMO


I think Boston will be just fine... I think it all hinges on the O-line...
