In our draft Barkley of course went 1st....followed by Freeman, Michel, I chose Kerryon, Penny, Hines, Jones, Chubb, Moore, Ridley, Guice, Wilkins
It was hard to pass on Penny and it may end up being a mistake but I prefer to go with players with a buzz, making plays and turning heads. Passed on Jones for the same reason...he has an open competition and is clearly thumped and looks sub-pedestrian. Maybe he bounces back and gets it but I'll let someone else take that risk.
I also snagged Guice late and will park him for a year as a bit of insurance.
michel - as many thought - BB doesn’t draft a rb in the 1st RD to not use him. Now that he is rounding into form after the preseason “procedure” we are starting to get a good feel for his current value as a solid rb2 and immense potential as time goes on. Still a significant injury risk.
chubb - BEAST. I have a feeling if he was getting 12+ carries per week in that browns offense he would be ahead of Michel for me.
lindsay - UFA blah blah blah. He is the truth. Freeman is solid but Lindsay is ELECTRIC.
freeman - very good rb. Currently stuck as the lesser part of an RBBC. If he were featured more he could be tied with Michel.
kerryon - very good RB. Same issue as Freeman.
hines - really talented RB for ppr leagues. In a great situation with Luck and a team that can’t run the ball to save their lives.
rojo - I only place him above Penny BC I feel he has less standing in front of him for the starting job...which he could win as soon as this week providing he shows even a glimpse of USC rojo vs ATL.
penny - beast of a college RB facing Subpar competition. Now he can’t wven beat out Carson and mike Davis. Also has a weight issue. Could be the next fat Eddie lacy.
