2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Shonn Greene, RB, New York Jets

2010 Stats
 766 rush yds.
2 rush TDs
16 rec. / 120 yds.
0 rec. TDs
2011 Projected
 1,115 rush yds.
8 rush TDs
20 rec. / 215 yds.
0 rec. TDs

After splitting carries with LaDainian Tomlinson last season in New York, look for Greene to carry more of the load in 2011. Greene has the size and strength to carry more of the load and the Jets should take advantage of his ability to wear down defenses. Greene only had 185 carries last season, but he rushed for 766 yards (a 4.1 yard avg.). If he can get 75-100 more carries in 2011, his yardage total would be around 1,200. One additional issue to watch with the Jets is how they plan to use rookie Bilal Powell (fourth round pick). Greene will be given every opportunity to be the starter next season, it'll be up to him to keep the job.
