Alright guys as we're all getting closer to our fantasy drafts we might as well get these discussions moving as much as possible and help each other out. I'd like to make a nice list of all the guys that should have the backfield mainly to themselves to start the season, and then we can discuss different time shares and discuss how the touches might be disbursed.
Portis (Most likely)
Lynch (Possibly changing to a time share)
Alright, now that is about all I can think of at the moment where they are backfields where one guy is going to get the bulk or the high majority of the carries. Anyone feel free to add someone to this list if I've missed anyone or feel free to dispute anyone that I've put on this list as I could be misinformed with what direction a team's backfield will be going in. For the most part though this should be pretty accurate.
I'm thinking these RB's are going to carry more value than most of these other RB's on a weekly basis to start the season and possibly even over a lot of elite WR's since you know they should be looking at 15+ carries on any given game as opposed to many guys like a Donald Brown/Addai or Moreno/Buchhalter/Jordan type of situation where you could start one of these guys and get nothing from them on any given week where it's almost a crap shoot do to game situations and disbursement of carries and receptions.
Now which guys do some of you feel like might rise from the ashes in their committee and become the TROJAN HORSE of their committee and be THE GUY because their just kicking ass and separating themselves?
The purpose of this thread is to determine which RB's have the sole backfield value and also how valuable different guys are that are in time shares and how valuable certain guys may be in their time shares to distinguish the duds of the committees that are simply names in those time shares and who are guys that will be pretty productive in their committees that will be pretty good starters in plenty of weeks.
Lets make this a productive thread for fantasy guys.
