    Option 1. This all comes down to your playstyle though.

    I went with #3. BCV is a worthless attribute to me and I don't value RBs that catch well. However, carrying is a big attribute for me. Can't afford to have the ball being put on the turf and #3 is the best at that.

    HB 1 for sure, HB 3 for short yardage and goalline.

    I went with 1. I'm a pass heavy team and 1 would benefit me the best.

    I went with 3. The ball security and ability to run through people is what turns me on. I know why guys go with 1...they see SPEED SPEED SPEED. I'd take better security any day...once you try to run that HB to the outside and he gets popped, coughing up the rock...you'll understand. Use him in passing situations, til then, I'm pounding the rock with 3, no question.

    I chose one more because of his Acceleration and Elusiveness, not to mention great agility.

    If you want to fight with me, stick your head up my ass and you can fight for air.

    I voted for 3. Even though you give up a little in speed and acceleration, the carry and trucking more than make up that for me. Gotta pound that rock.

    Nice work MG!

    Right now its looking like Woodhead the clear starter and rookie Eduardo Andry and Brown fighting it out for the 2nd string spot. Andry has the slight edge and has shown some glimpse of being a great player for the Colts.

    I picked #1 but, I agree its probably more based on how you play. If you need a speed back and your more of a passing team, Woodhead would fit your scheme nicely... If your trying to run the 49'ers or Ravens Power rushing attack, I don't think it would be wise to expect Woodhead to succeed in that type of system ;)

    PS - I voted before I scrolled down and saw that it was Woodhead. I SWEAR!
