Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

Much like Ben Tate with the Texans Montario Hardesty will be in his second year as a pro but this will essentially be his rookie season. Where Hardesty and Tate differ is that it looks like the Browns young running back will be given an opportunity to split time in the back field with the teams’ breakout runner from last season.

Peyton Hillis was terrific for Cleveland and fantasy football in 2010, but the full back touches the ball around 300 times and that is a workload that even management has admitted was too much. Look for Hardesty to help the Browns’ offense, but he’s not worth drafting in fantasy leagues as he’s coming of an ACL tear and Hillis will be the main option in the running game.

2010 Preview

Montario Hardesty looked to be a prime candidate to split time with Jerome Harrison in the Browns backfield. Sadly, Hardesty suffered a torn ACL in the final game of the preseason and is done for the year.

2010 Fantasy Football Outlook

College / 2010 NFL Draft: Montario Hardesty was a story of hard work and dedication for the Volunteers of Tennessee. With good skills and hard work Hardesty landed in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft to the Cleveland Browns. This move instantly threatened Jerome Harrison as it gave the Browns the big man they needed to fill the void left by Jamal Lewis.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: In OTA’s Hardesty has been one of the more talked about rookie’s around the NFL. Coach Eric Mangini has raved about Hardesty, and he has even split first team carries with Harrison.

Harrison was a huge name in fantasy for the final few weeks of the season has he posted a tremendous stat line. Still, he isn’t thought to be big enough to handle a feature role and this is why the team went after Hardesty as a more physical presence.

Hardesty is now the favorite to be the teams goaline option, and he may end up taking on more carries in the running game if he can perform well in between the tackles. Even if all this doesn’t come to pass this season, Harrison’s fantasy value is plummeting down the boards because of this rookie tailback.

At this time, we need to see Hardesty continue his success into the preseason and continue to show he is worth the touches he may receive. If he is still impressing by the time you draft your team than look for Hardesty as a decent late round stash away player. With opportunities for touchdowns and a heavy run first team, he could be a decent fill in player for his rookie season.
