Ladell Betts...

Took him in my fantasy league, RB's are huge in my league because of our scoring. Guys like Westbrook and Tiki pre-retirement are more valuable in my league than most. Anyways, what is the forecast for his playing time. I figured with Portis's history of injuries this kid should get some decent time and was worth a sixth round pick. Just wondering what you guys think.

Re: Ladell Betts...

i look at Betts the same way i looked at Larry Johnson, before priest Holmes got injured. probably around 500- 600 yards. around 4-5 touchdowns. unless he keeps fumbling. that will change everything

Re: Ladell Betts...

Betts for fantasy is worth it, simply because I don't trust Portis' health. It's possible to get him as a 4th or 5th RB who could become the bellcow.

Don't get me wrong, I hope Portis doesn't continue breaking down and gets back to his previous status. But for fantasy reasons, I tried to take Betts a lot.

Re: Ladell Betts...

I wouldn't have picked Betts because of Portis' injuries. He's got good hands and will be used as a receiver out of the backfield quite a bit this year, I believe. You might be able to get decent fantasy points for him but nothing like last year.

All I have to say is 1154 yards in 2006 and only starting 10 games.

Re: Ladell Betts...

I also took him as my 5th back just in case. Then today i went to look at my team and this was the note attached to Betts.

Sep 2 Betts was signed to Indianapolis' practice squad.
Recommendation: The Colts will only go with two quarterbacks on the active roster again with Betts waiting in the wings if there's an injury.

Re: Ladell Betts...

Betts is definitely a good backup to have.

Re: Ladell Betts...

When I go to draft my running back I always pick up the backs that don't have a very good backup or a backup that won't get a lot of time. I would take a guy like Marshawn Lynch over Ladell, but that is just me. I took Marion Barber just because that guy I think will be starting by the end of the year.

From a fantasy standpoint Marshawn Lynch should be a much better starting RB than Betts. Here are the rankings, Lynch is at 24 and Betts is at 71.

I am not sure the two have anywhere near the same value in fantasy.

Re: Ladell Betts...

That's because Marshawn or however you spell his name is basically the only running back on that squad. I think if anybody got Marshawn Lynch they will be quite pleased.

Re: Ladell Betts...

I got Betts too. It's especially good to take him if someone else nabbed Portis, because then if anything happens to Clinton you gain a solid number one and your opponent loses one at the same time.
