Derrick Ward, RB, N/A
There is no 2013 profile for this player yet. Here is his 2013 profile:
2013 Outlook: Over the Hill (decreased production)
When the 2010 season began, had I told you Derrick Ward would be the Texans' second leading rusher you would have called me nuts. I don't believe many people picked Ward to carry the ball 50 times for 315 yards and finish the season as the team's number two back. This season I believe we'll see numbers slightly off what we saw last year from Ward. Derrick will have a few games with 50-75 yards and occasionally find the end zone. I don't expect him to play as big a role in the offense this year because the Texans will likely use Ben Tate and Ward to spell Foster. This means Ward will have to put up respectable numbers with fewer opportunities. If I had to draft today then I would likely handcuff Foster with Tate. However, if during preseason football we see Tate is not ready for football then I'd go with Ward.
