Running backs just aren't that valuable anymore. Jonathan taylor missed some games and the colts were better than when he was healthy. Chubb might be the best running back in the league but when kareem hunt comes in there is no noticeable difference. Seahawks were rolling with penny then he gets hurt and they play a rookie who looks like he might now be the best running back in the league. Zeke elliot is worse than his backup tony pollard (statistically anyway)
Just rarely seems to matter all that much who play RB for any given team.
Yep, which is why the trade was braindead imo. If they were gonna package picks, do it right for someone like Ryan Tannehill (a clear upgrade over Jimmy G imo) to get you over the hump. Not saying Tennessee would do it. They wouldn’t imo. But that’s the type of guy who might be gettable and make a real difference.
