Yup. Honestly I don't even really know what's considered a standard sized bench anymore, but if it's even just 7 and with 9 starters, can't believe he's not desirable over the bench usual suspects like CEH, Moss, Hubbard, Vaughn, Chandler, Brown, Foreman, etc etc.He was in an almost 50/50 timeshare with Ekeler in a very close game, not just in snaps, but actual rushing attempts as well. While I wouldn't expect a 50/50 timeshare all the time, it feels pretty clear they trust him and plan on using him a lot. Not sure what people's league settings are, but he could be the best RB you get on waivers all season long. Not understanding people who are underselling this usage. The Ekeler ankle issue doesn't even have to come into play to suggest you spend a sizable chunk of FAAB on this guy. I'd rather roster him than most of the RBs drafted in the last 5 rounds of your standard draft.
I just picked him up this AM for free. Hard to believe no-one bid on him. There is definite potential here even without an Ekeler injury.
