Maroney to Broncos; Fred Taylor more interesting
New England has shipped Laurence Maroney to Denver, where he will join the mix with Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter. This either means that Moreno's hammy didn't react well to the workload he got on Sunday, or the team simply feels that Maroney is an upgrade to Buckhalter as a backup.
As a Moreno owner in one league, I'm hoping it's the latter; but we'll see.
Back in New England, Fred Taylor's stock rises, but perhaps the biggest beneficiary in the long run might be Ben-Jarvis Green-Ellis. Sammy Morris and Kevin Faulk are still in the picture though, so while it's worth keeping an eye on BJGE, I'm still staying away from this backfield completely for now.
