But I do think adding a #3 RB
Yeah these are important with the "total" rb job now being split into component duties. Looks at teams like the Saints, Lions, Niners and now more than likely the Broncos and Colts. 3 or more runners to do the job that one used to do. Then you don't spend a ton on one back, and can later draft lesser overall backs, but ones that can still fill a specific need. Thats the future to me more than likely. Otherwise split between two more that might contrast more, like the Chiefs, Bills, Bengals and now maybe us.
Curious your take, b/c preFF draft I now break down my RB column totally different (and have for going onthe 3rd year now). I break them down into segements of usage. The tiers go something like this...
1 - Bell Cows - ie. Rice, McCoy...
1b's - Meaning teams where it on paper is more 50/50, but I expect one back of the duo to emerge with a lot more carries. ie. Cowboys, Bucs
50/50 (duo committee) - Meaning its two backs, and either you can't tell the leader yet, or they'll remain sorta even on carries. ie. Redskins, Bears, Bills
3+ - I rarely draft these, as its almost impossible to hit on these lottery tics. ie. team in first sentence
I guess imo, so much more of rb success now is opportunites, and how many.
