More Steelers New

Postby joester » Sun Jun 08, 2003 2:01 pm

The Steelers still have one more mini-camp left before training camp next month, but the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has already projected running back Jerome Bettis to be the main workhouse for the upcoming season. At this point, it is believed that Bettis and Amos Zereoue will split most of the carries during the game, but, if healthy, Bettis would be the "hammer in the fourth quarter."


As it was last season, the running back situation in Pittsburgh could once again confuse and anger fantasy owners. A month ago, the Steelers seem prepared to move to a more pass-oriented offense and hand Zereoue the fulltime job. Now, however, there does not appear to be a clear statement of roles between the "if healthy" Bettis and Zereoue. Hopefully this will be more clearly defined in training camp.

I read this and I am extremely interested.
I figure it's Bettis' job to lose and all reports are showing he's ready to hold onto his spot.Amos will be the 3rd down/rest Bus back unless Jerome gets hurt.

Do you dare draft both for your fantasy squad?

Yeah I posted this in the AFC North forum today or yesterday.

I would only draft both of them if they fell late and I could get them after i'd filled my first 5 starting spots, but we all know that wont happen.

I would take Zero as my 3rd or 4th back. I don't want anything to do with Bettis.
