It’s a stash-and-hope kind of year

One thing I’m noticing this year is the abundance of stash-and-hope RBs this year, so while this is all covered on the site, here’s a very quick look at the best ones. These are mostly non-obvious one, so please don’t ask why I didn’t include McCoy, Mendenhall, etc.

Bernard Scott, Cin – Again, I like him a lot. He’s very talented, and Cedric Benson is no gemstone.

Danny Ware, NYG – Really impressed with his receiving ability, which bodes very well for him. If Brandon Jacobs goes down, Ware’s going to play a lot. I still like Ahmad Bradshaw more, but Ware will play a lot.

James Davis, Cle – Again, he’s looked much better than expected, and Jamal Lewis is close to being eligible for carbon dating.

Glen Coffee, SF – If Frank Gore is out, it’s 20 carries a game for Coffee if at all possible. Since he’s looked better than expected, that has to result in good production.

Tashard Choice, Dal – Really good player, but only #3. Still, if Marion Barber goes down, Choice’s value goes way up.

Mike Goodson, Car – I gotta tell you: this guy’s really good. He’s got excellent quickness and speed, and he’s had some huge holes […]

If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]

    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 […]
