Todd Marino. 2010 in the Sweetney path. I picked him up in the 4th or 5th round if memory serves, even though I had a decent FB (I'd moved willie parker from HB to FB, and he did surprisingly well there even being a bit small), and he's been amazing. He blocks for Sweetney, he runs it himself, and he even receives! He's made me several clutch first downs out of nowhere.

I've had some of the other stud FBs in other draft paths in other careers, and none of them have done for me what Marino has done. Having yet ANOTHER receiving target on the field drives opposing defense nuts. They simply can't cover everybody, my passing game is a brute force machine this season.

Re: best FB?

I'm like the Colts/Pats. Fullbacks just aren't as important as they used to be. I almost always just have a blocking FB for those grind-it-out run plays. Guys you can get fairly easy (without drafting) include:
Jeremi Johnson (Bengals)
Le'Ron McClain (Ravens)
Lawrence Vickers (Browns)
Korey Hall (Packers)

Sleeper fullbacks...if there even is such a thing lol. Oliver Hoyte is better than he looks and once made 5 straight pro-bowl appearances as my fullback. He is a great blocker and can be decent in goal-line situations.

Re: best FB?

The best FB that I've had has been Zachary Banks from LSU in the 2010 Jack English draft. He's a great blocker and short yardage guy and can catch fairly good too. I just wish he had a little more speed other than that I think he's the best I've had.
