Lot of people on here seem to be so concerned with handcuffing for that starter that they ignore the fact that the primary backup is some totally mediocre guy lacking the tools to succeed

Also like rashad Jennings for Mjd especially given the holdout situation


I'd be interested to hear from Foster owners and those who have the #1 pick and plan to select him.

In what round are you willing to pull the trigger on Tate?

As for Rashad: a lot of people seem to be really high on him.

But . . . is he any good? Why hasn't he gotten more run so far in his career?

Also, hear me now and remember me later: MJD will end this holdout soon enough.

I've heard people say he might pull a Vincent Jackson and play six games.

How did that work out for VJax?

Do you really think MJD is going to voluntarily reject $2.8 million?

I don't.

110 touches as a sophomore is not exactly a light load when you're a backup to one of the league's better workhorse backs.
+injury in 2011 (initially believed to be an ACL tear, but turned out to be something else, not requiring surgery)

Whenever he's stepped in thus far, he's been terrific. He's a good pass catcher and runner, and if MJD misses time, he'll be a very adequate fill in. I don't think MJD's gonna miss too much time either (if it all), but there's always risk w/ holdout guys (i.e. VJax)

If you're burning a 1st round pick on MJD, it'd be foolish not to try and grab Jennings later IMO

One hundred and ten touches is not even 7 per game. That's crummy backup territory.

His draft price seems cheap, though, so it does make sense to grab him late.

Re-read; he's a must-grab, look at what he's done when Mo Drew has actually missed time. Insurance in a murky situation for that cheap is more than worth it

I read it the first time and I already agreed with you.

The guy's been in the league two years. He finished as the 7th RB in my league last year despite missing two games.

RBs get dinged and sometimes they miss games.

To call him soft is ridiculous.

As for a handcuff, SD doesn't really have one.


I TOLD YOU SO...

First game contact = broken bone. Matthews is sofT. He couldn't walk through a crowd of people without getting hurt.

Yeah, the guy is human. He has bones. Who knew?

This is not a ligament injury or a foot injury. It's a broken collar bone that will heal.

To me, all this means is he will drop down the board and be good value for whoever ends up with him.

I'd say it worked out quite well; avoided major injury/landed major deal.

Not saying MJD has the same opportunity ahead of him.
