This early into the season, if I have to start making those decisions, ps eligibility will play a major role in my decision making.
Personally, I think the #3 RB slot is still wide open.
Meggett also did a fine job despite very few holes available.
None of these 3 guys seperates himself from the pack.
While PS eligibility is a concern, so is the salary we pay a player going forward.
It's a tough business the more success the team has.
If a young guy shows that he's close to fulfill a veteran's duty (especially as a backup where it's not very critical), the vet may find himself counting against the cap number.
I hate numbers!
