Heading into this draft, the Houston Texans were the team I expected to produce a big fantasy running back. They only had worn-out Ahman Green and a guy the Titans cut about seven times in Chris Brown. A first-round running back should be able to easily take over the starting RB role and provide a great fantasy starter.
But the Texans didn’t take a running back in the first round. How about the second round? No? Come on guys, help me out here! Finally, in the third round, the Texans decided to take Steve Slaton (89th overall), a guy who had been projected as a first-rounder in early season mock drafts.
