NFL Training Camp Notes: Fargas and Hamilton
A couple of running backs are in the news for completely different reasons. Former Raider RB Justin Fargas signed a deal with Denver. He doesn’t really have any fantasy value unless Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and Correll Buckhalter (back) remain sidelined. The Broncos also signed LenDale White last week, but he is also sidelined with leg cramps. Fargas, who isn’t exactly a durable runner, could struggle to make the team. If he looks good during the preseason, perhaps he could catch on since LenDale White will be out the first four games due to a suspension. Stay tuned to see how the Broncs RB situation plays out.
Meanwhile, Saints RB Lynell Hamilton, who was expected to be the short yardage back for the Saints, suffered an apparent knee injury that could put his season (and career) in jeopardy. Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush should see additional carries, while P.J. Hill and Chris Ivory could work their way into the mix.
