I know its been gone over before probably Barlow vs. Dillon

Ok head to head. Which would you prefer?

I like Barlow being the only option. Yes I know SF will be bad this year, but Rattay will be able to keep D's semi honest.

Dillon could lose some 3rd downs to Faulk. Hes still a head case, but being in a system where hes not the center could ease that trouble.

This would be for my Flex position.


Thanks

I think Dillon may end up having the better year. I don't know if Barlow is strong enough to carry the Niners. Bottom line to me is you are okay playing either one. Barlow has the bigger potential, but Dillon is probably the safer bet.

I really don't see the Pats using Dillon enough for him to put up big numbers.

If Dillon can prove himself good enough then the patriots should use him quite a bit. . .look at their running back recently, Smith, he was a joke, so they will probably use Dillon more because he actually has talent and it will put less pressure on Brady

This is exactly correct. I personally like Barlow after Taylor in my top 10 rankings, but I'm more of a gambling guy. Dillon has looked only decent in the preseason, but there's no doubt that like Barlow, he should get his fair share of touches.

So right now, I have Barlow ahead of Dillon, but both make two of the best #2 RB's you can get.

Given Dillon's recent history of refusing to suit up at Cinci, I'd not call him risk-free. And when has New England had a viable fantasy back? Not since Curtis Martin. Sure this could change if Dillon gets on the right track AND the New England offense leans a bit more on their running game, but those are two "ifs" upon which Barlow's fantasy fortunes do not rely.

Well seeing some of my trusted people on here giving me differing opinions lets me know that the fact I keep going back and forth on this one is normal.

Thanks for the idea. I guess Ill leave them more or less equal and see what the other players involved will make me do.


Thanks again all.
