Fantasy Owners Beware of Ronnie Brown Entering 2010

Pro Football Weekly has some interesting fantasy football articles on their site, and one is on Fins RB Ronnie Brown, as they say that folks should think twice before they draft him too high and count on him for big numbers:

The injuries are a significant concern, but there are reasons beyond Brown’s lack of durability to avoid drafting him this season.

He’ll have to share snaps with Ricky Williams, who was very productive as the featured back when Brown went down with a Lisfranc fracture in Week 10 last season — Williams scored six touchdowns in his seven starts — and the addition of WR Brandon Marshall also could lead the Dolphins to take the ball out of Brown’s hands, allowing QB Chad Henne to air it out more often.

It’s not hard to figure out why Brown is ranked so highly, despite the obvious drawbacks. He has scored 23 TDs in his last 32 games and is a dual threat as a rusher and receiver. While Williams will take snaps away from him, Brown is still considered the No. 1 back, and it’s quite possible that Williams, who turned 33 in May, will hit a wall and decline, resulting in more work for Brown. Henne has also yet to prove he’s ready to lead a high-octane aerial attack, and the ground game is still the foundation of the Dolphins’ offense.

But there are some other backs ranked just behind Brown on the PFW/Yahoo! draft board who are worthy of being selected ahead of Brown. Ryan Grant, Shonn Greene, Jonathan Stewart and Beanie Wells are slated in spots 13-16. Each has sustained less wear and tear than Brown, and could have brighter futures than Miami’s sixth-year veteran.
