My assumption comes from watching a couple years of playcalling. Things may change for us offensively, but there is no doubt that Fox will commit to the run even with Peyton Manning as our signal caller.
For two years, Fox has tried to maintain leads in the second half, and needs a consistent threat to move the chains and eat up clock. The size is just a characteristic of his ability. The guy is a chain mover, gets yards after contact, but still has home run ability (several games over 200 yards). I'm not making assumptions that they haven't tried to pursue with the use of McGahee and the bulking up of Moreno.
Anyway, the kid looks like he has been a true workhorse, and would make ann excellent 1a/1b with Moreno.
