    Dayne - 3.2 ypc
    Lundy - 3.1 ypc
    Carr - 3.3 ypc

    Now do some of y'all understand why picking up Gado was a good trade, like some of us said all along?

    Gado will be our featured back, no ? asked. Lundy just worked his way to 3rd string. Gado is going to thrive in this system, BETCHA!!

    There are some guys I know that like Gado so much, they all wanted to draft Gado with their first picks in their FF leagues.

    Lundy's numbers might've changed on the last drive. I stopped watching by then. I posted this thread before the end of the game.

    And Gado in the first round of a fantasy league? That's nuts. I like Gado, but not over guys like LT and Alexander and Stephen Jackson and Rudi Johnson, etc etc etc.

    I agree. I would like to see Gado get the shot for a few games and if he doesn't suffice I would like to see Dayne get a shot.

    I feel bad for Lundy though. That kid has so much heart, but it just didn't work today.

    Lundy just doesn't have the size to be a back in THIS offense. Dayne and Gado can atleast move the pile and get some positive yardage. Nothing against Lundy but until this line opens holes, he is going to get minimal amounts of yardage. DD didn't have holes all the time but he could move people when hit.
