No concerns that even if he is relatively healthy, they look to be playing behind (IMO) a lot this year and even with Ponder and a suspect WR corps, his touches may be down?
I have him in one league and am starting to think about "Selling" once some positive news comes out about him pumping his value back.
great idea. RB w/ 1500+ touches that doesn't avoid contact coming off ACL. Let someone else be caught holding the bag on that one and load up on young RB's.
That sounds all fine and dandy, but what are you looking to get back for him at the RB position? You're obviously not getting Foster, Rice, McCoy, or MJD. So how many other RB's out there would you feel more confident in out of curiosity?
Sell AD because he had a knee injury. That logic your selling just about every starting RB and WR and QB and TE. Basically your team is a select few rookies.
Trent Richardson (RB, Alabama)
Richardson is the clear No. 1 choice for any team looking for a back. While RBs are often considered unworthy of top picks due to their injury risks and the ability to find value in later rounds, Richardson is good enough to overcome the bias. The surprising part is that he does this with some serious health concerns. In the rush to anoint him the best available back and a pick as high as No. 4, few note that Richardson didn't run at the Combine. He'd had knee surgery -- not his first -- and was also unavailable at the Alabama pro day. He held his own workouts in late March and showed good speed. There's some durability concerns, but those are long-term, and he's helped by being a 'Bama player (more on that below.) The Browns have done their due diligence and seem comfortable, as do the Bucs. No doctor in the top 10 passed on Richardson due to his medical history or exams, though several seem to have questioned his durability. "Our [doctor] said he was going to need a solid No. 2 with him," a scout told me. "He's 25 carries, not 35. He's not [Adrian] Peterson."
