    I’m out of the loop here without ESPN in UK. What’s the Colts situation shaping up to look like. Any value in Addai there or is it definately committee?

    Addai is the lead guy. He should finish with more yards and TDs than Donald Brown, but Brown should be in the mix more this year. I like Addai as a third RB if possible, but is OK as a #2 if you are stacked elsewhere. He’s a guy Manning trusts, and he is very versatile, especially near the goal line.

    So u dont rank Justin Forsett in your top 50 RBs at all?

    He’s going to be part of a RBBC and I don’t see him as the one getting the TDs. Depending on how the carries shake out, he could jump up around 40 or so.

    actually I probably should put him about 44 bumping ward off the list.

    So Jamal Charles is going to overcome Thomas Jones even though he’s their #2 right now?

    Pavel – Yes. I think they are just trying to motivate the young back. They did the same thing last year with WR Dwayne Bowe.

    I currently have one of my teams in a standard draft league.. someone dropped j.stewart. I have gore, grant, mccoy and arian foster already.. im debating on dropping foster and picking up stewart, just thinking foster might have a big year. suggestions??

    given the texans fickle attitude with RBs I would probably go with j-stew. I do like Foster too though.

    I’m thinking Gore over Turner. What you think?

    Turner has 27 TDs in 27 games with the Falcons.

    The Niners signed Brian Westbrook and that Anthony Dixon kid looks pretty good.

    They both seem to be about as much an injury risk as the other.

    If it were a PPR I’d say Gore hands down, but my preference in a standard league is Turner. I’m assuming I have the same option as you in my draft tonight.
