Just drafted. Mike Tolbert is a FA and my weakest RB is Donald Brown, should I drop Brown to pkick up Tolbert? Im thinking yes.

QB - Cam Newton, Big Ben

WR - Steve Smith, Calvin Johnson, Dwayne Bowe, Antonio Brown, Brandon LaFell

RB - Frank Gore, Jonathon Stewart, D. Brown, DeMarco Murray, Rashard Mendenhall

TE - Jacob Tamme ( I think he will have a big year, Peyton loves his TE's and they already have chemistry)

DST - 49ers

K - Matt Bryant

Think its a good team overall, what yall think?

Sorry posted here, but had a Panthers related q regarding Tolbert. Should get a lot of goal line touches and nice recieving stats. Prob better option than Brown, and more fantasy trade value if he does good the first couple weeks. But Indy will run a lot and Brown will be an every down back so I dont really know.

This league was 40 bucks to join so taking serious

Move thread please, posted here cause of the question regarding Tolbert.

Ill hijack my own thread and ask a question to keep the thread here. How much of an impact will Tolbert really have here? As far as lead blocking goes and him being primarily being a FB will he be one like Lorenzo Neal was in lead blocking creating monster holes

Indeed. Real q was since Tolbert has really never lead blocked before will he at least be able to do it avg? Above avg? What are we expecting of him in his lead blocking role. All Ive heard about him is that hes very versatile and a good athlete he will need to be able to block well.

I think the FB position is switching back to the old days where they were used for more than blocking. I think that overall blocking by FBs will be just adequate enough in this modern age. Not like they used to be in the 90's and 00's. So Tolbert's blocking isn't that big of a deal. If he can just get in the way of a blitzer, that's good enough.

From what I've heard and read, he's an above average blocker. However, don't look for him to be a "blocking" fullback. Tolbert will get the rock, especially in goal line situations.

Did I miss something? Why is anybody talkin about blocking when referencing fantasy football?

Yes Tolbert is a great pick up. He'll run as a HB, FB, and as Ruvera has said, will be split out as a WR...

Your problem is that you have J-Stew and Tolbert.... I won't pick any RB on this team this year for the simple fact that they will be splitting carries week to week and of course the Cam factor.

TE is suspect too. I get the chemistry part, but it's obvious you waited to select your TE. This will cost you.

it's not all about carries.

cam is very comfortable tossing the ball to stewart, and tolbert is a proven recieving threat.

Tolbert, Bush (Chi backup) and Jacobs (SF backup) are all better options than Mendenhall IMO. All will see goal line touches and an increased role if there are any injuries. To clarify, not wishing injury on our guys, just have a weather eye on Gore and Forte's durability for fantasy purposes. Mendenhall isn't projected to even be ready to start game 1, Pitt offense has new pass happy O-coord...

Also, Olsen was rated past 200 in the nfl.com fantasy rankings to start. He's up to 197 or so now, still a bargain (no homo or homer).
