Scott Engel has a very good team, he stands out amongst this group of "experts". I don't understand how most of these guys earn their title with the choices they often make.

I don't know, I think Edge-Taylor is a pretty nice combo. They're both over their injuries and at 100% so I'm expecting good things out of both RB's.

Nah, I'll take Edge if he's around, but I wouldn't touch Taylor with a pole. Been burned too many times. Yeah, he's a great back when healthy, but he's just an injury prone guy. Our leage always has about 10 smart ass comments when someone finally takes him, and coming off a healthy year means he's definitely due again. Just too much of a risk for me, I don't even have him on my cheat sheet.

Was he due last year as well? Remember, he's played in two full seasons the past two years. Every single running back in the NFL is a big injury risk when you really think about it. They practically throw themselves at 280 LB defensemen 30 times a game for god's sake! Just because someone was injured 3 years ago doesn't mean they're going to get injured, because last year people said the same thing about Freddy.
