Ditch both of them, get a real fullback and rely on Tolbert and Barner.

uhh not when it matters.. we finally have a perinnial-playoff caliber team now and if hes been getting hurt lately you can hardly call him durable. Even so, DWill > Stew as a complete RB.


LOL, this is why I'm going to enjoy watching D-Will apologists cry when he's cut.

Why would he take Tolbert's touchdowns? Will he suddenly morph into a 240 lb. back near the goal line, because that's where Tolbert's scores came from.

what I've seen of barner, in GL and short yardage situations anyway, is an ability to squeeze  tiny holes and bounce around when paths are cut off. 

 

i think that where he might vulture TDs is inside the 20. the kid is capable of making some  big gains in   hurry. i can see him getting a good number of TDs without a lot of carries. probably williams and stewart between the 20s, barner in the red zone, and  tolbert in goalline and yardage situations.

i like this plan, and spend that money saved on another receiver, another DB, and a RT.

Only a sleeper if Williams is a June 1 cut...

We will have 5 rushers. If all healthy....any RB would be looking to max out around 600 yards

Doesn't that have like a less than 15% chance of happening though? This season...

Healthy? Stewart > Williams. Which is why Stewart is the preferred RB the last 2 seasons. He is more diverse...

If anything, a healthy J. Stew would eat into Tolbert's TDs.

I think J-Stew, Tolbert and Barner are gonna be a nightmare scenario for goal line defenses. It's bad enough we have Cam but we've got bulldozers and a RB who can play slot receiver too.

i dunno, i think stewart is their between the 20s guy. he got the bulk of the work heading into the red zone and williams and tolbert got the bulk inside the 20.

I agree. Can even go back to 2011. Stewart just allows the offense to function better which is why he saw so much time on the field in 2011 and Rivera wanted him there in 12.

I think Stewart simply will be our main RB and get the bulk between the 20s. Cam, Tolbert and a little Williams inside the 20. I would be very surprised if Williams played a lot of snaps with a healthy roster

I think people forget how well Stewart was in the screen game in '11 also. The offense flowed better when he was in. On top of that DLo doesn't usually come on til later in the season.

Yeah...I can absolutely see something drastic happen in the future concerning the RB position
