Pass the hot potato to me. Those newbies can't touch this.
Say what? The law firm is going out of business? Well I'm here to tell you friend, only unprofitable businesses go out of business, and business is good business at BJGE & Associates. Yeah, most people avoid New England RBs like the plague. Their backfield is more crowded than a mob of tween girls at a Justin Bieber mall signing. But when the Patriots cruised to the playoffs, their RB committee was working just fine. Why shake it up with an unproven newbie just to be different?
People are so up in arms about NE adding two new RBs that they forget Benjarvus averaged 4.4 ypc with NO FUMBLES. Emphasis on the no fumbles part. He had a timeshare with Woodhead and still managed 1093 total yards and 13 TDs.
As long as other players moan, groan and focus on all the "possible" RB timeshare in NE, you just might snag BJGE in Round 10.
He makes a great RB3 and could work in a pinch when your other RBs are facing the Steelers or the Jets or whatever.
That's it for me folks. When the dust settles and training camp is finished, I'll bring you more commentary and analysis for your drafts. See you in August!
Update: August is here! I can admit to being wrong on this one! Avoid Green-Ellis! Woodhead & Ridley are picking up steam! Oops, ran out of exclamation points.

About Me, Wendell "Papa Smurf" Gaymon
I’m not really a little blue hairless, half-naked leprechaun who lives in a decked out mushroom. I’m an average Joe like you, who spends his eight hours of sleep obsessing over this game we call fantasy football. You’ll find I’m a bit off-kilter with my picks, but I think that’s how you win best, picking the best players with the best matchups.
