Running Back Split

Recommended Posts

Based on last year there are about 1500 yards to go around at running back. What kind of share do you guys see between Green-Ellis & Bernard?

Based on past years, the no. 1 RB, presumably BJGE, will get in the 1,000-1,100 yard neighborhood, while the no. 2 guy, presumably Gio, would go for about 300 yards. The rest goes to other backs. Two caveats: first, we don't know precisely how they will use Bernard yet, and second they want to use him as a receiver out of the backfield, something BJGE isn't much of a threat at.

Good points. I guess we'll have to see how things go in the preseason.

BJGE was a good Reciever in the NE offense, he just got overlooked last season. Hopefully they will start to use the RB/HB option more this season. With GIO and Charles manning those spots they could have some bi-time mismatches.
