    - not sure if this has been posted yet -

    He carries a risk tag, but from a character standpoint, he's right up Philbin's alley.

    As I used to live in SC and go back every year, I've followed this kid for a while and he's a special individual, whomever takes a shot at him, if he can stay healthy - they will have a major steal. Could be ideal in the one back set in combo with Miller - likely to be IR'd though.

    If he can be had for a fourth...take him...put him on IR..so he can fully heal...BAM...a steal.

    His injury was horrific....and his 2nd major injury already in his short career. Yes, he's a HUGE character guy, but the shelf life of RBs is really short to begin with. Unless your medical staff is willing to go to bat for this kid, taking him is a big risk.

    When I think of Lattimore, I think of Willis McGahee. If anyone can mimic what McGahee has done after his horrific injury, it's Lattimore.

    Byrnes High School kid literally an hour from where I live. Definitely rooting for him.
