Smith - Facing a poorly ranked GB defense, and he can be used in passing situations.

Chris O - Facing a tough Cin defense, and Cleveland sucks.

Addai - Fresh off of injury really, but he IS facing our defense... Watch out for Brown/Carter to get touches as well, though.

Greene - Haven't heard anything of him at all this season. Probably not doing too great.

Jones - Not while he's behind Demarco Murray.

Jones #2 - Extremely inconsistent, and the #4 receiver (including Finley) on the team.

Williams - Facing a mediocre TB defense, but Nate Washington lit it up next week against ATL, so look for Washington to get the looks again.

With that said, I'd start Kevin Smith and Joseph Addai. Maybe Ogbonnaya if you trust him against a good defense.

Actually, do Kevin Smith and Greene. Just read that Addai is coming off injury and he may not even get the majority of the carries.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
