I actually thought this would be a no-brainer. But surprisingly enough, Teddy’s fantasy production last year wasn’t much lower than Big Ben’s, even though the Steelers were a much pass-heavier offense.
And Teddy has much better weapons at his disposal this year.
Last year, the Panthers ranked 6th in terms of completion rate, whereas Denver ranked 31st. If Teddy manages to even remotely pair his 2020 efficiency with Denver’s passing volume, he could be a very solid RB2 this year.
Still, that’s a lot of "if"s. And Big Ben certainly offers a job security that Teddy doesn’t have.
I’m leaning towards keeping Ben, too, but not without doubt. Hence this thread.
