CMC is incredibly durable. It may be his best trait of all, and...his workload was less than that of the elite backs of the last several years, especially when you take into account that RB wear and tear correlates to carries, not snaps or targets. He only had 219 carries last year.Bot101 wrote: ↑Sat Jun 01, 2019 10:51 amCMC didntsee his explosion till Cam couldnt throw. If he gets another workload like he had last year he will breakdown sooner rather than later. And Cam isnt going to papercut a defense to death.FantasyFreak wrote: ↑Sat Jun 01, 2019 8:30 amRB's who gain weight aren't always a good thing. Can often lead to injuries. CMC can't really catch more passes. I think he's peaked out as a producer, but since he is one of only a few of the top RB's with no real issues of injury or personality, I think he's a hold.DJB wrote: ↑Sat Jun 01, 2019 7:55 am
I agree with all except CMC. I think he really explodes this year . He's bigger, and he also has a great schedule to take advantage of. I think at this point next year he is in discussions for 1.01 in startup.
Barkley is going to regress. I could see teams putting 8 or more in the box every time he is on the field . I mean Eli and a washed up Tate scare nobody and there is no deep threat from Eli as he can't throw . Teams if smart move their defenders close to the LOS.
CMC is going to have a monster year
CMC and Kamara, more than any other of the elite RBs in the league, project to have the longest healthy careers based on their low usage carrying the ball compared to other elite RBs. That has already been shown by both throughout their college and pro careers where neither has had any real injury history to speak of(Kamara some minor knee sprain in 2016 at Tennessee) and CMC with basically nothing ever in his entire career(slight groin pull in college once, minor shoulder problem in NFL - that’s it).
The reason they are elite isn’t because of heavy usage because neither see heavy usage, it is because of their elite efficiency scoring near the top in the league in Fantasy Points Per Touch.
