Steve Slaton intrigues me

Quick post here if you’re drafting this weekend, I was very impressed with Steve Slaton last night. He’s a smaller back, but he’s not tiny, and he surprised me how he played bigger than he is and does seem to handle the physical aspect of the game. Greg Cosell said this to me last night and I totally saw it this weekend. Note he was added to our players to target list last week.
I have zero faith in Ahman Green and Chris Brown, they are incredible injury risks. Chris Taylor is nothing special, and neither is Darius Walker. Slaton is young, fresh, and he brings some juice to their offense. That offense could be very good.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease don’t accuse me of creating hype. Please don’t expect the next great fantasy sleeper. Please don’t expect him to go off Week One. Please don’t get upset if he doesn’t do much.

These are the facts; Slaton looks good and the other backs are aged, injury-prone, or nothing special. I would not be surprised at all if he was a key player in their backfield.

Ok, the season needs to start because I think I’m on edge here a little bit…

    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague. It’s a great way to scratch your fantasy itch early, and to shake off some rust and […]

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
