What round should he be taken in? he lead all rookies in rushing and is very underrated. slaton got overshadowed by Stewart, Chris johnson, and Matt Forte.. Any other year Slaton could have won rookie of the year.

BUMP

You said he was no more than a 3rd RB, maybe. Name the 20 or more Rbs that you would draft ahead of him.

I think he's a good 2. I can think of more than 20 HB's that I think will have a better season.

More than 20? I'd like to see that list.

I think he meant "cant", at least I hope he meant that

Injuries will be the only thing holding him back.

I dont think he will be a top 20 back. That being said if I name 20 will he beat out a few of them? Yes


Suh or bust, Dom. You make the call.

Then you're contradicting yourself.  If he's a good 2, then how can he not be a top 20 back?

I saw Steve lastnight. Didn't get to talk to him because he was going in as I was walking out. Pretty cool tho.

Was he wearing a rasberry beret?

IMO Slaton's a decent talent... nice quicks, decent speed (not great, that's why he was a 3rd rounder and not a 1st rounder), and pretty good vision. He'll always be a "homerun threat" for that reason, but to think he's going to reproduce what he had last year when 1) he's demonstrated no short-yardage ability, and 2) his team has actively looked for a short yardage replacement, is fool's gold. There have been plenty of recent instances where a rookie back has shown some ability then been drafted way too high. He's got talent, but keep it in perspective, especially for fantasy... he'll never be a short-yardage TD guy, and for that reason he probably won't be worth a top 20 pick.

As for a listing of 20 RB I'd pick before him, I could probably come up with that fairly easily. Simply because he won't get the short yardage "point" carries. Close to the same reason I wouldn't have Chris Johnson in my top 15 despite being a much more productive version of what Slaton is.

Slaton is bigger than Westbrook.... and he does ok around the goalline.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

I want to see the 20 backs better.

So would I, if no reason than to make my point that most of the backs have some question mark or another.  Apparently it is so easy to do that they don't have time to mess with it.  lol

In an all TD league you might be right but in a yardage + TD league Slaton is a good pick and certainly more than a top 20.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
