The answer is Fiester that should be obvious. Do disrespect to the other guys they are solid guys but not playmakers.

Is the problem at RB or O-line?

The staff did the same thing with DJ Howard and CJ Davidson. We have upperclassmen they want to give an opportunity to. This is something that can be frustrating as a fan, but at the same time you appreciate a bit. I'd rather them just give the ball to Feaster and let him go, but it'll work itself out soon enough.

The most talented and explosive RB on the roster is T.E. ! Hands down , not close!
But he is young and catching up on pass pro etc .
I trust Dabo and the staff to put the best player on the feild week by week . But at some point soon Travis will take over and get 85% of the carries for the next 3 years if he stays healthy .

It is natural for us as fans to want to see the home run hitters instead of the guys with the highest on base percentage. Fuller isn't exciting, but he is steady and dependable (last week's fumble notwithstanding). In terms of running ability alone, I prefer Feaster, Etienne, and Choice above Fuller. But I get it. Fuller blocks well and has earned the trust of the coaches.

I expect to see more Feaster and Etienne as the season progresses. If they can consistently perform, I believe we will see them get the bulk of the carries moving forward. However, I do not think we will see one guy play the whole game at any point this season - we have too many weapons and all will get some touches.

^^ I think it is more the O-line. But given that, I think Feaster and Etienne should get more playing time.

Some of you guys act like you see more of these RBs practicing than the coaching staff. I'd love to year your take on exactly how each one performs during their reps.
