This muddies the RB field even more. Ballard's value takes a big hit.

Agreed. The only ding against Bradshaw is he can't stay healthy, but when he is ok he's a pretty good back. It will be interesting on how they will divide up the workload.

yup. agree with james . Talk about Bradshaw drops Ballard right now. Bradshaw eventually lands in Indy, which could surely use him.If he's healthy and lands on a team, he could have value.

Ballard goes from being a mediocre fantasy RB2 to being nothing more than Bradshaw's handcuff. Meanwhile Bradshaw is a high risk RB3. The NFL fit is a lot better than the fantasy fit.

Again, agree here with Russ...Bradshaw had every opportunity with no competition at NYG, in Indy he has some...better NFL move than fantasy...let the other owners play that game.



I don't like small backs never have. never will...too unreliable...they are great when they are in and playing but inevitably it's the ol questionable, probable, doubtful merry-go-round. There are so few bell cows I think more than ever you have to try and get one of 8-10 (maybe only 6) that are out there.



Drumaster Bell Cow List (in no particular order)

AP

Ray Rice

Forte

Lynch

Doug Martin

Gore

CJ

Foster

MJD

Morris (Maybe...don't trust the Rat)

Maybe's BGE and CJ Spiller



That's it kids if you ain't got one of those you are RBBC... period end of story!

You have some potential RBBC's included in there DM. Bernard Pierce is expected to have some role with the Ravens after his strong showing both at the end of the season and in the playoffs. The 49ers want to reduce Gore's load so he stays fresh for the end of the season but will Hunter be ready? Will James step up in his second season? I'm not sure Maurice Jones-Drew will be healthy enough to be a featured RB but the Jags have precious little else at the position.

One name you omitted but I think is going to be a workhorse is Steven Jackson. Age will catch up to him sooner or later, but I think he has another 2-3 seasons at a high level and in Atlanta's offense he should thrive. They kept trotting Turner out there last year instead of really getting Rodgers or Snelling any real time. Jackson is going to be gold for someone in round 2 of fantasy drafts.

Will Jackson be a PPR RB # 1 or more of a standard back this year? I am struggling with that. There are too many mouths to feed in Atlanta when you have Julio,Tony G, R White, or now Jackson?



Somebody will suffer and my best guess would be Tony G.

Russ/James I agree with both posts but all you've done is cement my position...the days of the workhorse/bell-cow back are gone and to be honest I think it's a mistake because with that goes the true intimidation of the running game.



James no one more than you can relate to the heady days of Emmit when everybody in the stadium and the sidelines knew...1st and goal at the 5...you'll see Emmit three times...stop him if you can...most didn't...how demoralizing for the defense?



John Riggins, Sweetness, Marcus Allen, Jim Brown etc. I blame Wayne Fonts...he had Barry...and he started the whole...pull him out at the goaline...I watched allot of barry sanders and I don't every recall him getting stuffed at the goaline that warranted getting pulled at the goaline.



That doesn't happen anymore...

Russ,



I think Rice will be fine IF the Ravens don't pick up another solid WR # 2 receiver. If they do, then Rice's production will be an issue.



The way it stands now is Flacco will try and turn Smith into a superstar and Pitta will be his red zone target. Rice will be the second passing option like he used to be before the Ravens drafted Smith.



I think Brandon Lloyd would be a good fit in Baltimore but I am hearing from my sources that Lloyd is a "Locker Room Lawyer" and that is why teams are shying away from him.

I like Jackson getting his in the ATL. They need a run a game with the departure of Turner and the fact that Rodgers isn't ready to take over full time duties. While I don't think he returns to his 2006 numbers (90 receptions), I do see him playing a key roll in the Falcons offense, even with many hands wanting the ball. If the ATL rolls up big scores this year, Jackson could end up running quite often in the 3rd and 4th quarters of games. With the experience, Jackson should be the 3rd down back as well.
