    So am I in a lose-lose position here? I drafted Jstew and Moreno back to back in the 2nd and 3rd round. I really want Dwills to leave but not to Denver…

      I feel your pain.. I have both JStew and Moreno in a 4 year old Dynasty league. Both have “Potential”, but both have been fantasy “Disappointments” up till now (compared to their cost). Say what you want about what either should/could do, up till now, either even as a #2 feels like a gamble and pray week to week. And I would love nothing more than to see DWill go somewhere that isnt Denver.

      The worst part for me is that because of this, neither has the trade value equal to their cost/potential.

      Hopefully you are Strong in other areas and can weather the storm until one or both fulfill.

      John Fox will have a good running game in Denver even if Moreno is splitting time making him a decent #2/3RB at worst.. even if he brings in DWill.

      To be completely honest, JStew is of bigger concern to me if DWill stays.
      1. CAR loses that die hard Run First mindset in Fox,
      2. They Suck. (come on.. as of right now, they do)
      3. They NOW have a new Franchise QB who is going to cut into the goal line TDs, which was where JStew compensated for splitting time. And believe me, they will use him that way to help keep the fans behind him and the pick.. ala Tebow stealing goal line carries for and not much else at the end of the season.. Wait.. Tebow plays in Denver, and might end up the starter…..

      Never mind,.. Yeah, we both look to be in lose-lose situations if those are our main RBs. If someone really believed in either enough to pay for them, I would definitely entertain trades.. Even where I’m taking a modest hit.

        well I have cj2k as my RB1 but these guys are my RB2 and Flex guys. I think the mobile QBs actually open up lanes for the RBs. CJ2K had a monster year with young starting and McCoy did pretty well with Vick. I hope Newton and Tebow could have similar effects but now I`m just dreaming. I`m also dreaming about Dwills going to Miami…

    I have a standing offer on the table of Ryan Mathews for Moreno…and I am waiting for the Deangelo shoe to drop before ultimately deciding what to do. I like Moreno’s upside slightly better than Mathews but not if Deangelo is a Bronco.

    Also…I have picks 1.2 & 1.3 in my league’s rookie/free agent draft. Early rumors are that Green will go #1 so I am debating which 2 of the Jones/Ingram/Thomas trio I will pick. I have good depth at WR but RB is not a strength. Thoughts?

    • Ken Kelly says:

      Well, we have Mathews ranked slightly higher than Moreno, but that’s close to a wash.

      Moreno’s upside is higher than that of Mathews, but his floor may be lower as well if the Broncos surprise us and bring in more serious competition. I’d be surprised if that happens and I also think Tolbert is a more serious threat to Mathews than many others do. It’s very close.

      Ingram seems to be a slam dunk at #2. Jones and Thomas are in great situations to thrive, but Ingram has the most upside there.

      • Johnny Five says:

        I think you have to keep Moreno. Mathews was a dissapointment last year and Ken is right about Tolbert. Moreno should be fine even if they bring in another quality RB. John Fox likes to run the ball so having another running back is better for Moreno since it will keep him healthy all year. Moreno most likely isn’t a top 5 RB, but he is in the top 15-20, I cant say that about Mathews.

    I am counting heavily on Knowshon to deliver for me in 2011. He has shown dynamic ability, but has the old injury bug to get rid of if he plans on ever reaching his full potential. I am a Knowshon believer, but at the same time I hold my breath every time he runs, thinking his hammy might explode.
