Will teams move their safeties up to the line of scrimmage or will they play the safeties deep to counter his speed and prevent the long touchdowns? It seems they are screwed either way. If the safeties are up and Larry gets by them or around them (like the long touchdown yesterday) they will not catch him. If the safeties are back Larry will get numerous 10+ yard runs. I wonder, what will teams do?

What would be even better are sets that include Priest AND LJ in the same backfield. Then the defense wouldn't know what to do at ALL.

They'd average 10.0 yards per carry.

How will they counter LJ?

They'll put players that they don't like on defense.

They'll put players that they don't like on defense.Then they would have an excuse to lowball them come contract time.
