And that matters, how?

But it's good to know that the Dolphins problems are over & they've righted the ship!

Seriously, 1crzy, though ... thanks for the timely tip. For what it's worth.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

It matters because white RBs and WRs are really bad.

wha? John Riggins, Steve Largent...just to start....maybe they aren't playing today, but you can't make a statement like that with a broad brush.

The hell you can't. There might be a few exceptions however not many great tailback that are white. He's not speaking of the past bozo, he's speaking reality. Black matters

Don Maynard, Fred Biletnikoff, the list continues...

As far as these days, yeah, no first option white WR's...but they are the kings of possession receivership - Proehl, Looker, Chrebet, and Stokley are guys who can really come through and get that key first down for a team driving to a win!

Trivia Questions -

How many times has a white player finished in the top 30 for receiving yards in the last 4 seasons? How many times has a white player finished in the top 30 for rushing yards in the last 4 seasons? Can you name them?

So we have 1 white RB and one white WR, compared to how many of African American heritage who were better anyways? Forsey isn't terrible, but he isn't going to tear it up either. No fantasy impact, no matter how deep the league.
