For 2019, what are the potential upside swings from whats left of:
Laird, Walton & Gaskin?
Full on RBBC, I imagine.
Ballage needs Cox, Walton, Smythe, O'Leary, WR + in blocking for him but will break a few off every now and again.
Walton is there for his ST and pass pro so that will lead to a decent amount of use but he is not a great rusher either.
There is something Danny Woodhead-like about Laird that may appeal to the coaches. He is already a fan favourite but I don't know what that is all going to get him come game time. One to keep an eye on though.
If Walton/Ballage continue to flounder then I guess Gaskin will work his way into those touches by default.
But then the O-line is total garbage so RBs aren't going to get a chance to look good anyway.
Long way to say, maybe they all get more touches but you don't really want any part of it.
