I thought these guys would have done more in the league. It looks like they have made very little impact. Is it the teams they play on?

watch the browns and colts for like 10 minutes and it'll be pretty clear.

Duke is very good when he gets the ball. He's not an everydown back though.

Duke had over 1000 yards rushing and receiving combined as a rookie last year, this year he was good but on a bad team. Dorset had 520 something yards and multiple touchdowns but he needs to produce a bit more

Isn't this Duke's contract year tho? Hopefully he can go to another team like TBenjamin

Dorsett was just never that good. Say what you want about the colts but TY Hilton was catching plenty of balls, and when healthy Moncrief was doing very well too. PD is just small and not a really tough guy. Duke is on the browns, and he's not fast enough to create enough space on his own. But he still has a chance to find a better situation that would give him the opportunity to showcase the things he does well.

Dorsett was/is a one trick pony. It was a terrible reach by the Colts drafting him so early. Duke has been good considering the team he plays for. He'll never be a 20 carry per game back but he could put up monster numbers on a team with a quarterback.

Love Dorsett but no one outside of the Colts or his family thought he was a first round pick.

Duke is pretty good. He won't ever take over an NFL game but he will have a solid career. Obviously not the best situation for a solid player. A great running back would struggle there.

The Colts aren't a bad team. They're a mediocre 8-8 team with one of the better QBs in the league. They needed help on both lines but their GM picked a WR in the first round.

Yeah I expected Duke to rush for 1400+ yards each of his 1st 2 seasons... What is wrong with him..

Dorsett just isn't very good right now. He's the Colts 4th wideout. Can't stay healthy, doesn't run good routes.

Yeah duke doesn't look fast at all. Still has his quick cuts though
