id say brown is safer as he is definately the starter. the problem is the offense is focused around mcnair, and the tennessee o-line is nowehere near denvers. but he will get 20-25 carries a game and put up good numbers. q-tip is a higher risk because if he starts all season he will put up awesome numbers (top 15 possibly). so it all depends on whether your playing it safe or going for it.

I like Brown better. I know Q-TIp is part of Denver and there great Offensive line, but something tells me that Brown will have a great year. Both are Solid options, but I like Brown better. Q-Tip is a greater risk pick, but it could be a greater reward.

With Anderson out for the year...Q-tip may lose less goaline carries ...so that is a plus...but I think Brown will be just as good...maybe better

I'll take Brown just so I can avoid the ulcers that Shanny can give you dealing with a Den RB. Yes Anderson out for the season helps Q-Tip's cause, but he still has Bell and to a lesser degree Hearst behind him to make things interesting.

Still this is a tough call as we all know the potential of any Bronco RB. Brown is a bit safer. Q may be more of a risk/reward situation.

I like safe early and risks after the 5th round.

Griffin. Brown doesn't seem too anxious to keep his job based on what I saw today. Smith should take over sooner than later.

C.Brown is way better than Smith.If Tennesse wanted a 30yr old RB they would have keeped E.George.Q-Tip and Brown both have impressed in the preason and i really think that they both will be solid picks.I have to give the edge to Q-tip for the fact that he may blow up like portis and its worth the risk.

does anyone know the strength of schedules for these 2 teams?
Fantasy sports are dominated by the 50-50-90 rule.
any time you have a 50/50 choice on something,
90% of the time you'll get it wrong.

This is a real tough one.

Im gonna lean towards Brown for a couple of reasons.

Firstly im pretty confident that Brown will get the goal line carries, something im not so sure about Griffin yet.

Secondly I think Brown should be able to maintain his position as the primary back for the whole year, whereas Griffin going on Shanahans history maybe replaced by the rookie anytime during the season.

According to ESPNs Ease of Schedule rating, Griffin has THE easiest schedule of all RBs, Brown has the 5th easiest.

skinsfan, what game were you watching? What exactly did Brown not do that was impressive? What did Smith do that was? Just so you know, there is a chance that the Titans might not even keep smith. The third string RB is doing more that him. Chris Brown WILL NOT, repeat, WILL NOT lose his job to the ageing smith.
Draft on Aug 11th!!!
