Will Earnest go to camp?

After a few weeks of seeing RB Earnest Graham play, I thought he was a guy who, for a short period of time, can look good, but that the more he plays, the more the more his limitations would be exposed.

But he got better and better as the weeks went by. He ran hard, he ran physically, he was consistent, and he was more of a sustaining runner than Carnell Williams. He has some good downhill instincts and some power to him for a smaller guy, and he did a great job in the passing game. He looked a little like Emmitt Smith.

However, just because he was a fantasy gem and a great find in 2007, doesn’t exactly mean he’s going to be a nice pick in 2008. After all, this is a guy who had just 52 carries in three full seasons on the Bucs before last year. And after all, this is Jon Gruden we’re talking about.

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
