Shop for Indianapolis Colts gear at has Addai on the List of Overvalued RB’s


Fantasy Football site has come out with their list of “Overvalued Fantasy Players” for the 2007 season.  Colts RB Joseph Addai is the #4 RB on their list of Overvalued Players.  Below are the comments on Addai:    

Joseph Addai, Indianapolis Colts

Addai finished off his rookie campaign by becoming the first running back to rush for more than 1,000 yards while not starting a single game during the season. Now that the player who was ahead of him on the depth chart, Dominic Rhodes, has signed with the Oakland Raiders, the running back chores lie mostly in Addai’s hands. While owners may be excited to see what he can do as the starter, they also need to be wary of the toll that all the new work will take on him. Part of his strength last year derived from the fact that he got frequent rests and was able to conserve his energy. Additionally, not being the starting back meant that teams did not pay as much attention to him when he was in. Running back DeDe Dorsey should spell him, too, to keep him fresh. While playing with quarterback Peyton Manning is beneficial to any running back, Addai will have to prove that he can stand an entire season of full-time NFL work. Taking him as a high-end No. 1 back is a risk; he’s better serving fantasy owners as a low-end No. 1, which would allow them to grab a quality No. 2.
