    How much game time will Maroney see this season? I'm guessing Dillon is going to get a bulk of the carries as long as he is healthy. I have a couple of drafts coming up and I'm wondering if either back worth drafting. Maroney will have more value in my keeper league, but is he worth a pick just to stash for a year?

    Not sure for a year but I wont be suprised to see him hit anywhere from 700-800 at the most without a Dillon injury. I expect him to get his good share of carries. As you may have seen in the pre season game Dillon ran a few times then all of a sudden Maroney is in the backfield and busts a 13 yard gain. So I think he might be worth it if the pre season game was any indication. Dillon will be running a lot between the tackles and getting first downs and being productive and a 1000-1200 yard season with lots of TD's. Maroney I can see getting very big gains with his great speed once he finds a hole he can burst through it. I dont think 800 yards is a stretch by any means though I dont see him getting a lot of goal line touchdowns, thats Dillon's job.
