Riddick is RB3. That’s a typical scat back.
RB1 = Every down starter (KJ)
RB2 = Heavier, short-yardage guy
RB3 = Backup to RB1 / Scat back
RB4 = Backup to RB2
FB or RB5 = Fullback
We have the drafted Fullback as well as the LB-turned-FB battling for a single spot in 2019.
RB1 is locked up by KJ.
RB2 is empty. It was Blount’s but he played his way out of that spot.
RB3 is Theo’s. Bring in competition since he’s lost a bit of his magic.
RB4 is ZZ’s. Again, bring in competition since we’re talking late-round or UDFA.
ZZ is a better player than Blount at this point in their careers. ZZ at RB4 is a good fit. ZZ at RB2 would be a ceiling too low for me in that group. Theo at RB3 is ok, but he needs that 100% catch rate that he had a couple years ago before his surgeries. Where he was once a trusted outlet with a good rapport with the QB, they’ve ended up not on the same page too often. Wherever the problem is coming from there, it needs to be resolved.
