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 this summer. If one or both of the top two guys are out, Goodson’s a major sleeper.
Maurice Morris, Det – He looks a little bigger this year, and the Lion offense is looking pretty solid. Nice flex guy if Kevin Smith goes down.
Chris Brown, Hou – He’d be good if Steve Slaton got hurt that is until Brown gets hurt.
Samkon Gado, Stl – The guy looks damn good, and he’s going to be the guy, the #2.
Javon Ringer, Ten – I’ve been impressed for sure, but the problem is he’s only the #3. Still, if one of the top guys goes down he should see the field.
