Out of all those very mediocre RBs in oakland will their be a clear starter or will it be RBBC?

I would think a RBBC, but if I was forced to draft one of them, I would put my money on Wheatly. But, expect Fargas and Hambrick to get some touches as well.

If I had to take one, I'd gamble on Fargas. You're in pretty bad shape taking an Oakland RB, might as well take the one with the most upside. While he's unproven, you know Hambrick sucks and Wheatley's too old.

A buddy of mine is Raids FANATIC and although he won't use these words... Fargas was a mistake. The Raiders line is not quick enough for Fargas' running style and Fargas has not been able to make the adjustment. He thinks it will be the same as last year.. Wheatley as the main back and Crockett getting goal line.

I think Wheatly will win it out w/ Amos taking passing and 3rd down snaps, and Crockett stealing the TDs

I think the only viable Raiders RB is Crockett. But he is draftable in a TD-only league and for a late draft pick at that.

Wheatly will be the #1 RB, but no way should you draft him as anything but a 4th or 5th RB (if that).

Nope, the only way its a RBBC is if the starter eventually goes down with an injury. Norv Turner gives his feature back the rock over 300 times a season - if he's healthy - and never reverts back to the dreaded RBBC. Although Hambrick has the size that Turner likes, he doesn't have the speed to hit the holes like Wheatley. Expect Wheatley to start (and be a nice sleeper pick in the late rounds), with Fargas and Zeroue vying for the backup spot (because its only a matter of time until Ty goes down).
