Pierre Thomas No, Joseph Addai Go!

It looks like Pierre Thomas is a no go. This is bad for Thomas owners but good for those that need to start a scrub RB. Ladell Betts is going to start but I do not see him amassing any useful fantasy points. Lets be honest here…..The Saints pass the ball. The only way a RB (not named Thomas or Bush) have any value is if they get the goal line work. Chris Ivory is the goal line back. Ivory will also be rotated in on regular downs with Betts. Ivory should put up 10-15 fantasy points. I give the nod to starting him week 4 if you are feeling the pinch.  

Joseph Addai is going to go. This means Mike Hart’s value takes a tremendous hit. I love fantasy sports. In one day Mr Hart can go from a no name to the sneaky fantasy play and back to anonymity again. Addai is going to go. This leaves minimal value to Hart. So if you are still in a pinch look no further Ryan Torain is here.

Ryan Torain is going to be the waiver wire pickup of week 5. Write it down you heard it here first. I have always been one of bold predictions and I see Torain being another success story. Clinton Portis is ailing and cbssportsline is reporting that Portis is now the third down back. That means…..u guessed it….Mr Torain is the 1st and 2nd down back. This has the making of a timeshare all over it. Torain is going to be given EVERY opportunity especially with Keiland Williams being released. Pick up Torain NOW before the waivers begin you will thank me later. Of the 3 backs listed in this piece only one plays on a team that believes in the run. Shanahan is a coach that loves to pass but also balances with the run.

Don’t look here for the breaking news on who is starting week 4…..go to rotoworld. I can’t compete nor do I care to. Just remember the fantasy flukie told you to pickup Torain before he became the fantasy football darling.
