Brown will be THE WORKHORSE in Tennessee.
He will definately get the bulk of the carries, this
usually translates into FF points, especially on a
solid team like Tenn.
Bennett, O. Smith, and Moe will be sharing in Minn,
and Hearst will definately get a lot of touches in Denver.
Go with Chris Brown.
I agree with you in that Brown seems to be the man in Tenn.
However, Tice has gone on record saying that Bennett is his main back. He or the team has never indicated O. Smith is any bit of a challenge to Bennett's unquestioned starter status. Now, is it going to be like a Hearst/Barlow situation last year? No. I see Smith spelling Bennett when he is tired. Period. Of course Moe will vulture some scoring attempts. I have Bennett for 7 TDs, 1000 yards rushing and 300 yards receiving and that places him as my 18th RB on my checklist.
How do you say Hearst will get a lot of touches in Denver? No way. Q-Tip (I like that name!) has shown that he just may be the man, even though it's only preseason, he has excelled. I still want to see more from Q-Tip this preseason before I am confident that he'll be the main RB, maybe one more solid preseason performance cements it, but I really don't view Hearst as a threat. He'll get some work, don't get me wrong. Maybe the same amount of work Moe Williams will get in Minn. Nothing more in my opinion. With one more solid performance from Q-Tip I project these stats for him behind the Denver OL: 8 TDs, 1050 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards....this puts him as the 19th RB on my checklist.
As you can see, with these two teams I am not affraid of the RBBC rubish that is getting spread around. Tice was forced into RBBC last season with Bennett's injury. He is no longer forced into it. Shannahan likes to keep giving the ball to the RB that has most recently won the starting job and the only way that changes is if the RB gets injured and is out of commission or if the RB just blows for a few games.
