Joseph Addai isn’t a flashy back or much of a game-changer, but he’s reliable and consistent when healthy.
However, Addai’s value is now in serious jeopardy—as if it wasn’t already with Delone Carter threatening his workload and job security—as teams will stack the box far more often, practically daring Kerry Collins to throw it downfield.
While Addai will likely see more touches go his way with less of an emphasis on the pass, without Peyton to move the chains downfield, Addai will also see his goal-line looks reduced significantly.
A borderline No. 2 running back and flex play to some owners out there, Addai hovers near that value—but is close to slipping further down.
