I think given his current ADP and what value you'll get is good. If it goes high though I'm not buying. RB3 to RB3.5 I'm OK with. I think there will be two new players in GB in the form of Randall Cobb and Alex Green. You should see more of Green this year. For the purpose of this thread he's not a terrible pick with the amount of RBBC in the league. I will say GB won't be running for many TD's. (26th in rushing attempts and 16th in rushing TD's (Misleading considering they don't run traditional offense 3 TD's total for Grant and Starks)) I would think a decent yardage total minus the TD's. Not much upside with an injury risk. Not really what I'll be looking for. Around that area I'd rather take a player with talent stuck behind an injury risk or maybe a talented backup that is also a goal line thief.
I think you're a year early with Cobb. I'd love him in Dyno but not much interest in redrafts.
Didn't Green just tear up that ACL last October? He might even start this season on the PUP list. I'd need a pretty big bench to invest a pick on him.
Went under the knife on November 16, 2011. I gree that I wouldn't touch them in redraft. Rather they will have a part to impact other players.
Its hard to imagine that the Packers aren't hoping and possibly even expecting Green to supplant Starks. Starks hasn't shown much in the chances he's had, and the Packers did not acquire any RB of note in the off-season or draft.
Alex Green = An only slightly better Brandon Jackson.
Yes theyd like him healthy, but the same could be true of everyone on their roster
He cant do what Starks does, Starks cant do what he does. Its an RBBC in the offing. Green is not someone id be hanging my hat on as a future full time starter.
In dynas enjoy the 2/3rds of a season youll get out of him. In redrafts his ADP is good enough that you should be able to get him and he should outperform his draft value, which is all you can ask for in any pick.
