Once Bennett is out of the picture with injury, Onterrio will be a Top 10 back (whether it is after his suspension this year or next).
That was probably because he was expected to be suspended. The NFL did the Vikings a HUGE favor by delaying the hearing and thus the suspension for several weeks, allowing Bennett to get healthy before we lose Onterrio.
He is gone though. Onterrio will not play again until week 9. Because he is missing 4 games due to smoking pot (not an injury), he is in Tice's doghouse. He will need a Bennett injury to be of any value.
The way the new turf is eating players up, he could gain his value back, but he is worthless until at least week 9 IMO.
