C.Brown or Smith

I think Brown is turning into a solid #3 back and if he keeps up his hard work, (he looked great in the first preseason game) he could even be a # 2. Remember he avg over 5 yds a carry in the playoffs. This is when everyone on everyteam steps it up a level and plays their hardest and he excelled as well. If he continues to step it up he could be a great value pick.
I got him over a month and a half ago in the 11th round!!!!! (this was before George was out)

I am lovin that pick!!!!

I personally think Antoine Smith is a turd. Chris Brown is the future, and Fischer needed an experienced back-up, and that is all Smith is imo...

12 team, H2H, hyper-performance, keeper (5)

Start 9: QB, 1/2RB, 2/3/4WR, 1/2TE, K, D/ST

Keepers: Deuce, Rudi, CJ, Plax, Foster

Brown is an excellent 3rd RB fantasy option and maybe a nice #2

He looked great in the playoffs last year, and was a beast in college at Colorado!!!!

If you're trying to project his draft position, I think it would be safe to place him right where most "experts" had George before he left town, or a little higher in my rankings!

Anywhere between 20 & 25 for RB's

Agreed. Chris Brown still has very little NFL experience even though he's shown flashes of talent. I think people drafting him as a top #3 RB could be in for dissappointment. The presence of Antowain Smith makes the Chris Brown a gamble this year.


Don't forget Antowain Smith is a seasoned vet that has won Super BowlS and that the Titan's window of opportunity is closing quickly.


On the contrary, the Titan's as an organization has produced quite a few very good players and continue to be a very good team. They aren't over the hill yet, but they do lack the last ingredient that would give them a championship currently. I don't see them as a team with their window closing.

Chris Brown is one of my sleeper RBs this year. IF he stays healthy and plays 16 games he'll get 1250+ yards and 10 TDs

Inexperience and his "upright" running style aside, I'd have to say that 100 yards in the first half vs the Miami Dolphins D is pretty damn solid. Whomever took Brown in the 3rd round and beyond is a straight-up thief... now let's see if he can stay healthy...
