No. Behind that horrible o-line, he will be riding the pine all season line on my fantasy squads.

I really doubt that you're the only one picking him up :)

Jumping the gun? No.

Ahead of the curve? Yes

He can be a okay backup. If you waited any later, I bet he would have been scooped up.

I raced home from work and got on the computer right away to pick him up. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained", here is what "rotowire & Fanball" have to say:

RotoWire Recommends: The deal is contingent on Gordon passing a physical, but that is a formality at this point. Coach Dave Wannstedt said he didn't expect Gordon, who missed most of the preseason after undergoing ankle surgery for an injury that bothered him since last year, to do much in the Dolphins' opener. That said, before long, we expect Gordon to emerge as the team's go-to back and he is someone to grab off the waiver wire right away if your league has drafted already.

FANBALL:It appears as though the acquisition of Gordon will at least banish all thoughts of a running back by committee approach, which is nice, but the state of the Dolphins' offense makes us less-than-giddy about Gordon's prospects. He will struggle to produce behind a shoddy offensive line and without better weapons surrounding him, but at least he probably won't be sharing carries. There was no word on whether he'll start, or even play, in Sunday's opener.

Umm, you're complaining about that corps? Taylor and Henry are proven studs, Jones is going to get lots of carries, George was almost cut you know and Barber if he bounces back is a great 3/4. Lamar Gordon as a #5 would be icing on the cake. No real exciting players, but your RBs are solid 1-5 that way.

Taylor has as much chance as anyone else of getting hurt - he is a couple years removed from his major issues. And Henry will be on the field until someone locks him to the sideline. I wouldn't worry too much with these guys as my starters.

Grabbing Harris isn't a bad move if you have the roster space.

If you can make the space he is worth a spot. He will be given a chance to be a feature back, given how poor the other backs have done, on a team that likes to run. Who knows, he may be the surprise of the year and if nothing else could be nice trade bait if he has a good game and someone has a bye week hole.
