It's time for the championship match: Tim Biakabutuka vs. DeShaun Foster.
How they got here:
Tim Biakabutuka defeated Mike Wahle 65%-35%
DeShaun Foster defeated Ricky Manning, Jr. 68%-32%
Here's the case for Tim Biakabutuka:
Draft position, mainly... and therefore the amount of opportunity he got without really producing anything of value. He had a nasty final season at Michigan, so people thought that it would naturally carry over into the league. It did not.
He played in 50 games over 6 seasons. Any other RB who plays 8.3 games a seasons isn't going to last 6 seasons. It's hard to call a guy overrated when he's hurt all the time, but just the fact that he hung on that long playing in only half the games lends itself to that point.
And, here's the case for DeShaun Foster:
With DeShaun Foster, you have a guy who had a few memorable plays, but didn't do much else except take away opportunities from a young DeAngelo Williams. He was overrated by the coaching staff.
Ok. Now that we've made a case for both players, it's up to you to determine which one should be crowned the champion of the overrated bracket. There's a case to be made for both players and it's a vote that could go either way, but a decision has to be made.
