    Every running back taken with a high draft pick has had a local beat writer say that they think that player will get a heavy workload. Except for Sony Michel. No beat writer is foolish enough to make a prognostication that involves Belichick. In the case of Ronald Jones, one Tampa Bay Times writer has said he thinks Jones will get 15-20 touches while another Tampa Bay Times writer has said he thinks it'll be a timeshare with Barber and Sims. I'm not sure which of those two writers is more credible but I'm not going to trust any local beat writer in June. They are guessing. Jones has had issues at pass protection and has little experience at receiving. He will have to prove himself at those skills to see a high percentage of the snaps. He couldn't have already proven himself at those skills. He is also smallish which makes a heavy workload less likely. He does look special on his college gametape as a rusher. Right now he is very high risk/high reward.

    Why draft Fitz when quality quarterbacks can be drafted late? Quarterback is deeper than ever. I count 20 quarterbacks that are legit. A few of those will be available in round 15. Winston currently has the 18th highest adp for a quarterback. I would draft Winston as the backup. I might even use a strategy this year where I draft quarterbacks with my last 2 picks.

    Evan Engram was extremely inefficient last year. He caught 55.7% of his targets. That was by far the lowest catch rate of any of the top 20 fantasy tight ends. In fact, a lot of the elite tight ends had a catch rate well over 70%. Was it because Eli was inaccurate? Probably not. Overall, 75.8% of Eli passes were considered catchable which was 5th best in the league. Engram dropped 11 passes according to PFF and he dropped 5 passes according to Fox Sports. That was the most dropped passes for a tight end according to PFF and the second most dropped passes for a tight end according to Fox Sports. PFF gave him an overall grade of 42.2 which ranked 67th out of 71 tight ends. PFF gave him a receiving grade of 55.8 which isn't much better. Did Evan get 64 catches, 722 yards, and 6 touchdowns solely because he was a warm body on the field and someone had to get some stats? Is Engram set up for a sophomore slump because Eli will have superior receivers to throw to?

    Anything less then 6 games would be bullmanure. If you're going to (the really bad word) people over, then at least have the goddamn balls to do it equally. Just highlighting further how Goddell (the really bad word)ed up Zeke's case.

    Great analysis. Maybe it's time for the michaelredd Friday Huddle column? Can't say if you're right or wrong but I appreciate the thought-provoking post.

    I hate this backfield with all my heart. DND territory for me. Rodgers has never passed much to his RB's on top of all the other woes which kills their value in PPR for me.

    Derrick Henry at #40 is not a good pick. A running back who doesn't get receptions has a ceiling of RB2. Henry has had 11 and 13 receptions the last two seasons. But he probably won't even be a RB2 because he will likely play second fiddle to Dion Lewis. The Titans didn't give Lewis $8.25 million guaranteed to be a complimentary player. Unless Lewis gets hurt, Henry will probably gets stats similar to last year when he played 39.92% of snaps and was the 37th highest scoring fantasy running back.

    I don't get the hype. OBJ is back, Shepard will improve. And most importantly, Barkley is going to be used heavily. Maybe it's because I don't own him in any of my leagues. I'm staying away in redraft too though. I'd rather wait on TE this year and it looks like Engram is costing way too much.

    Not shocking at all. Gonna be a fantasy mess.

    Some smaller running backs can handle a heavy workload. It is hard to predict who can and who cannot handle it until it happens. But it is extremely rare for a team to give a small rookie running back the opportunity to prove that they can handle a heavy workload in their first year. Teams like to protect their investment and play it safe for a year or two with the small guys. I believe the last time a rookie running back lighter than 215 pounds had 200 carries was Chris Johnson in 2008.

    good post. in addition to "Jones has had issues at pass protection and has little experience at receiving" ... he too often ran into the backs of his OL. Meaning this shifty speedster will look to bounce his runs outside only to find the NFL LBs are way faster than what he faced in college. The fact that Jones has been playing WR in OTAs suggests the team will look to get their speedster the ball in open space. If that beat writer is correct that he'll get 15-20 touches per game, i'll predict that Jones goes on IR by week 12.

    Isn't TB the team that drafted a PK in the 2nd round?

    I posted a FA bid yesterday around 3pm. It was still there this morning but it's gone now.

    Montgomery seemed like more of a stop-gap solution to me, at a time when they didn’t have much else at RB. I remember last year (about this time) there was conversation/speculation as to whether or not he would remain a RB, or move back to WR. With the way GB has drafted WR’s the past few years, I’m guessing he’s staying at RB. That said, I don’t necessarily know that he’s got the inside track to the “starting” gig. It seems more like a time-share situation between the three, or whichever ones happen to be healthy on any given week. And, realistically, keeping them all active/sharing might contribute to keeping them all fresh/healthy. Unless one of them shows that he’s head and shoulders above the rest, terms of productivity, I think they’ll all have minimal fantasy value. Some value in deeper leagues maybe, but in standard leagues, your best bet might be to hang on to the one you like most, in hopes that he’s startable on weeks when one of the others is out due to injury. Which, in all reality, is more of a matter of when than if. All of THAT said, this is all pure speculation/opinion on my part.

    I wonder if Williams is atop the depth chart only because he ended last season atop the depth chart. Putting Jones back atop the depth chart would be akin to handing him the job. I doubt they were intending on doing that before he was arrested but his arrest probably eliminated any chance of it. Jones might even start the year with a one-game suspension. I do think that Jones looked great last year. Williams looked serviceable. I'll definitely be targeting Jones if he falls far enough.
