RBs are a dime a dozen. Use them, burn them up and then throw them away when they want the second contract.
Looks like James reads holes better and runs with better balance and power. Martin looks a little faster and quicker. Play them both and use their strengths.
Secret Superstars: Week 9Gordon McGuinness | November 7, 2013Mike James, HB, Tampa Bay BuccaneersBefore the season began it would have seemed like an utterly preposterous thought that the best single-game performance from a Buccaneers running back wouldn’t come from last season’s breakout superstar Doug Martin, but instead from sixth-round rookie Mike James (+3.0). But, with Martin out due to injury, the former Miami Hurricane seized the opportunity in just his second career start.He wasn’t much of a factor as a receiver, with just two receptions for 8 yards, but you can forgive that when he was as good as he was on the ground. Of his 158 yards, 89 came after contact, working out at an average of 3.1 yards after contact per carry. Adding six missed tackles as well, he finished the game with an Elusive Rating of 48.2. Not satisfied with all of that, he added a touchdown of his own on 1st-and-Goal with 2:23 to go in the first half.
Mike James = reminds me of Warrick Dunn !!
LOL; a tad larger than Warrick... A lot to like in Mike; good stop-and-go and change-of-pace in heavy traffic, good forward lean and strength, and good if not great explosion thru a hole. Can catch and block well too.
Those are mostly all terrible comparisons. He's more like Willis McGehee or a less powerful Thomas Jones
