1300 if he stays healthy. We actually have depth at RB this year.

Idk about 1,800 yards i think that would be a pretty amazing comeback...with other backs like moore and mendenhall taking some carries from him i can see him at 1,200-1,300 if he is healthy and i would be happy with that production.

I am going by age and trends...I just don't see a 29 year old RB getting healthier or better.

800 yds, 4 TDs- About what he did last year.

Let the flaming commence....

Mendenhall will steal a lot of his carries. I expect his production to drop significantly this year. 800 yards at most.

Willie will get what the offensive line gives him. If the O-Line has it together he has a monster season (barring injury) if the O-Line struggles well you know what happens...

If Willie is able to stay Healthy I see him getting around 1500+ yards. Mendy may be a factor but that remains to be seen. I like Mendy and hope he does well but I have not seen him produce enough to say that he will be the feature back this year.

I think he's hit that "wall" that RBs hit...he's injured all the time now.

I say it's more like 500 yards.

willie will want 300+ carries for 1500 yards to audition for his last big money contract but what willie wants and what willie gets this year wont match up.
barring injuries of course:
220 carries = 850 yards

he will have a nice load in the playoff run though, and fortunately will lead us to ring #7 but also unfortunately this will lead him to a huge payday from another team next year
