2010 Projected NFL/Fantasy Football Statistics
Pros: Buckhalter (back, neck) performed well in a limited role last year; he ran for 642 yards on 120 carries (5.4 yards per carry) and found the end zone once. He also caught 31 passes for 240 yards. No. 1 back Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) has been limited by a hamstring injury; if he takes a long time healing, Buck could have a larger role.
Cons: Buck has been bothered by back and neck problems during camp; he has completed a full 16-game slate just once in his career. Moreno is clearly the No. 1 in this offense, when healthy, which will limit Buckhalter's workload.
Fantasy tip: Provided his injury doesn't develop into something more serious, Buckhalter should be drafted as a No. 6 back, or as a handcuff by those that already own Moreno. Target him near the end of your standard 16-round draft.
