The running back situation in Miami is an interesting one.
Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams have left town. The Dolphins drafted rookie Daniel Thomas and then traded for Reggie Bush.
Thomas is a big, 230lb back that is also very versatile. He will likely be the target of many Chad Henne dump-off passes. Thomas is the supposed starter with Bush being the third down back but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s more of a 50/50 timeshare between the two (Reggie Bush would be a very expense third down back).
I’ll probably stay away from both. I was burned last year by rookie running back Ryan Mathews and Miami’s offense will not be very good. Also Reggie Bush is often injured.
The days of Brandon Marshall being a top-10 receiver may be over. Marshall just cracked 1,000 yards a year ago (although he did miss 2 games due to injury) and only scored 3 times.
He plays in a conservative offense and has a shaky QB throwing to him. Also, the guy’s a little nutty and there’s a risk of him doing something stupid that results in a suspension. Marshall is a risky pick but with top-10 WR potential.
Davone Bess is a nice little slot receiver that had nice rapport with Chad Henne a year ago. He will be a solid contributor in deeper leagues as well as in PPR formats.
