Every year there is a player like Droughns...last year it was Rudi Johnson....well not exactly but you know what I mean....Why not take a chance on him. He gained 193 yards on the ground w/ a TD for Godsakes!

Do you guys remember week 1 against KC and the following three weeks. Griffin started high, and right now is very low. After a MONSTER performance against a weak run Defense. Not to mention Shanny Clearly stated that Qtin is his man and he has Confidence in him starting and playing well.

Are you understanding where i am going with this?

Now to the present WEEK 5. Qtin didn't even smell the ball. I think tatum had more carries than him.

Droughns Monster performance after WEEK 5. And who knows what is next in Denver.

My team is stuck with bell and Griffin on my roster and have absolutey zero idea about the Denver situation considering the FACT that shanny never tells the WHOLE truth.

I clearly stated in another post that Droughns was the featured RB for the most part of the WEEK 4 game. And trusted Shannys word that griffin was the starter and look at where i am now. :-t im just lucky that i have GREAT DEPTH at RB and can afford this HORRIBLE blow to many fantasy teams. This is exactly why you need a LARGE STABLE OF RBs. Heart of a prepared fantasy owner.

MAY GOD BLESS ALL DENVER RB OWNERS...i must be blessed twice (griffin)~~~(Bell) handcuffed to the bench, end of the bench next to the EXIT like in basketball.

After holding onto Bell, I think I am finally admitting that he will not be this year's Clinton Portis. How sad. I suppose I will hold onto him anyway, as I can drop lesser players for my drop/adds. But I agree that this denver backfield looks like a crowded mess for the near future. Maybe Droughns will be the guy. I have learned something here: Shanahan's words can't be trusted, we all know that; but if you look at his actions last week when he gave droughns way more carries than Bell, I should have acted accordingly on the waiver wire. I doubt many of us realized this, but looking back, I think we were all just clouded by hope for Tatum.

I dont think Droughns is going to take over the feature role, but I would expect more of a RBBC from here on out

I see split carries between Q-Tip and Droughns. Bell may get a few carries, but his value took a huge hit Sunday with the emergence of Droughns.

Im guessing he's doing that b/c if Q. Griffin is healthy and ready he doesnt want to not start him b/c he would lose all his confidence.

More like Shanahan would have to eat a huge piece of humble pie for annointing Griffin the starter in the first place.
