He led the Jags in rushing with MJD not playing and Forsett hurt.  And yes, I know it's preseason, but is this guy worth a look in a deep dynasty?  Is he MJD's handcuff, or does Forsett have the #2 locked down?  What's the story on this guy?

All good questions, and I have no idea either but I'm intrigued as an MJD owner...

With talks of Todman being cut despite beasting out in the preseason (again), I'm sitting here wondering if the Giants will come calling for Todman to back up David Wilson.  I don't know if anyone has watched the Jag's preseason games, but Todman looks legit.

If he looks so legit why would a talent starved team like the Jags cut him?  Not trying to be a jerk, just asking because i haven't watched him play.

Why would he be cut? Is Forsett healthy?

This dude was a playmaker for the uconn huskies and I believe he will do fine in the nfl.

Or keeper league guys who are forward thinking trying to pick up the next Darren Sproles or Victor Cruz.

I remember dumpster diving for RBs last year and starting Montell Owens. That's when I realized my league was too deep. In other words I'll probably be starting Jordan Todman at some point this year

I watched Todman. They'd be stupid to let him walk. I'm in Seattle and he's waaaaaaaay better than Forsett. Dude is very similar to MJD

Now here's a golden nugget I found on Jaguars official website under Todman's player profile (with a nice pic included, I must say)

Played under Jaguars running backs coach Terry Richardson at Connecticut.

http://www.jaguars.c...43-666ce033c244

Hard not to believe Todman has the inside track to be MJD's backup after looking like a stud in every preseason game avg 7.68 yards per carry on 29 carries across 4 games.

Stashed him in all my dynasty leagues (v impressive runner) but I doubt he has much value this year with MJD back to full strength

I love him as a lottery ticket this year.  You can get him with the last couple picks of the draft and with the workload MJD has seen, his snaps are numbered.  So why not have a high upside rookie ready to go off your bench?

Todman isn't a rookie, been in the league 2 years... practice squad journeyman.

If you aguys aren't in keeper leagues than yo uare missing out. Its guys like this who can win a season for you just because you got the jump on everyone else. These late round guys or waiver wire guys can turn out to be gold if you don't do your research.

Don't forget Alf. Look at the dividends that he is about to pay off for guys who managed to snag him last season.

He's as good a deep sleeper pick as any.  If MJD goes down or has recurring problems from LisFranc recovery, this guy will produce.  His college coach said he was the best receiving RB he'd ever coached.

What's the problem?  Christine Michael has his own thread, and he doesn't look like he'll play much at all this year.
With MJD's injury history, I think it's very pertinent especially for the MJD owners who the backup is.  This guy seems like he can play and his stats from the preseason are impressive.  I think he's way better than Forsett, who I believe is having injury issues of his own.  Wondering if Todman is a better stash than Michael - not from a talent perspective from an opportunity perspective since his chances of seeing the field this season seem a little better than Michael's.
