Fantasy Football Index Magazine "Ask the Expert" Question for the Week: Which training camp battle will you be paying the most attention to this preseason?
Most will say C.J Spiller and Fred Jackson at RB in BUF. However, while the QB and RB situations in BUF (and CLE) are tempting, I am most interested in the RB battle in SEA. Justin Forsett seems to be the early favorite, but Leon Washington has the “right stuff” if he can recover from knee surgery. He is explosive and has a 4.8 YPC average in his four short years in the NFL. Now that he finally has moved away from the Thomas Jones shadow, he is sure to want to prove that the highest paid RB in SEA ($2.45 million) is worth it. And this is one battle that could last all preseason with the winner getting a ton of carries in a Pete Carroll offensive juggernaut.
