Back to the real show, the big money league.
1. MJD is back. Fan****ingtastic, I feel wonderful having Rashad Jennings on my bench now, considering he'll be getting approximately 0% of the workload by the time I'd need him for byes. I've scoured the scrap heap, and here's the best we've got this year (excluding Redskins and Patriots RBs, because Shanahan and Belichek are not to be trusted):
I think that Hunter might be the safe bet right now, considering that Frank Gore can never get through a season. Pierre Thomas is really the only other guy worth serious consideration here, if the Saints finally give up on Mark Ingram.
At this point, I'm sticking with Jennings. But if there is an injury to a key back at any point, I'm all over the backup like a fly on shit.
2. Somebody just dropped Titus Young in order to pick up Josh Freeman? I don't understand this move, seeing how this owner is already stocked with Matt Stafford and Peyton Manning.
Nonetheless, I consider Titus Young an upgrade over Kendall Wright in every way. They are similar players, but Young (a.) isn't a rookie, (b.) plays with a better QB, (c.) benefits from defenses keying on Calvin Johnson, who (d.) is about to suffer from the Madden Curse this year.
I love Titus Young, and just put in a claim for him.
