Falcons' RBs.

Postby Guttpuppy » Wed Jun 11, 2003 1:17 pm

Warrick Dunn - RB, Atlanta Falcons June 11, 11:24 a.m.
Dunn finished with solid numbers last year and managed to hold on to his starting role despite a hard charge by T.J. Duckett. But Dunn can’t escape the inevitable. He simply isn’t an every-down back, and Duckett is a workhorse whom management favors. Coach Dan Reeves will come around, too, just as soon as he tires of Dunn’s game-to-game inconsistency.
Fantasy Spin: Dunn still is a dangerous rushing and receiving threat. He has top reserve value even as a part-time player. (Jason Langendorf/TSN)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
T.J. Duckett - RB, Atlanta Falcons June 11, 11:18 a.m.
There is no doubting his ability, but can Duckett avoid the injuries that slowed him as a rookie? And will there be room enough for both he and Warrick Dunn in the Falcons’ offense? Yes and yes. Dunn is best suited to third-down duty and providing an occasional change of pace, and Duckett figures to get 10-15 carries per game and most of the goal-line touches.
Fantasy Spin: Duckett is a top backup and great sleeper. (Jason Langendorf/TSN)

Maybe Dunn will kick it up a notch to get the starting job. He has the talent.

nah...he was in SD with his rehab physicians making sure all was good. ducky wanted to get a full bill of health prior to starting camp. atlanta's higher ups knew this...i think danny did too, but was just pissy cuz he didn't a say in ducky's whereabouts...

I'm not a big fan of either as well. Dunn wouldn't last the whole season as an everydown back, and from the sounds of it Duckett and Hambrick have been hanging out at the local buffet all off season. I personally think that the Falcons #1 RB is Vick.
