I can't tell you how to play Fantasy Football but taking a RB who splits all the carries is not really a great idea. Throw in a tad of horrid passing game and defenses stacking the box and what you have is a horrible fantasy player.

That said, he still had over 1000 yards rushing on half of the teams carries. Last year was his worst year in terms of YPC, which was still 3.9. As I already said, he's averaged 5.0, 4.1 and 4.2. You can't go by total yards alone and fantasy points. He basically averages 4 YPC. I'm not on here to try and convince anybody he's Adrian Peterson's clone. That he is not. I'm defending the notion that a 4 YPC average is not "horrible" in the NFL. I think if he can get to another team, the dude will have a great year. If he can get 350 carries, I think he can go for 1600 yards 12 TD's and a 4.5 YPC.
