2013 Fantasy Football Profile: Shonn Greene’s Back-Up Role Could Work Out Well
Name: Shonn Greene
Team: Tennessee Titans
Position: Running Back
Years Pro: 4
Draft stock: (Dropping) Greene is not very enticing at this point in time considering he currently is looking right at Chris Johnson‘s rear end on the depth chart. The Titans’ offense sputtered last season and although Greene was a 1,000-yard rusher in 2012, he still isn’t getting much love.
2012 fantasy impact: The New York Jets leaned on Greene a ton in 2012 and it was solely because the New York passing game was pitiful. Greene may have scored eight touchdowns, but his 3.9 yards per carry was incredibly disappointing.
Best-case scenario: Johnson gets most of the carries in Tennessee, but Greene is able to swoop in on the goal line and make himself relevant with a handful of rushing touchdowns.
Worst-case scenario: Greene falls out of favor with the Titans’ coaches as the four-year veteran shows no signs of improving. In addition, Greene doesn’t even produce on the goal line, which is the entire reason why the Titans brought him in.
Where you should draft him: I would try to steer clear of Greene, but if the 15th round hits and the Titan’s back-up running back is still available then you should jump at the opportunity.
