Leftwhich status and projections?

Postby PSU All Day » Thu Nov 25, 2004 10:03 am

Anyone have any news on Leftwhich? I have him Carr and Hasselback so I need him to step up.

Anyone care to share their projections for him vs a very poor Min defense?

Thanks(giving)

I am going with him also, over Hass and Harrington (who I was thinking of playing, thank god I didn't :-D :-D ) He may still have some rust from his injury but should get a lot of yards and one or two scores against Minnesota's sketchy secondary.

Most sites point to him playing so he's going to be in my lineup. Hope he comes back in old form quickly! ;-D

1 hundred billion yards and a rushing TD.

As a Leftwich owner I am excited to have him back again (in all likelihood) this week, but I'm keeping my expectations tempered due to his reduced mobility. Knowing he's less of a threat to scramble downfield, I expect the Vikings to really come after him on Sunday.

Poker fiend,

As a Leftwich owner myself, that was one of my concerns as well. My other concern, is his getting pulled. Yes he is coming back, but with his limited mobility, will he be hit more? Will one of those hits be enough to knock him out of the game? They won't risk any long term damage to him, so if he were to take a beating early, I wouldn't be surprised to see him struggle.

All that being said, I'm still considering starting him over Brooks myself.

Jscupa,

I don't want to speak for Poker Fiend, but when I say I am concerned about his reduced mobility, I'm not talking about his rushing for yards per se. I am more concerned with his ability to evade pass rushers.

he is sometimes critisized for his lack of mobility


And his first game back from a knee injury isn't going to do anything to silence those critics.

his injury wont hinder him at all


It may very well turn out that way. However, my original concerns still stand. Remember they were originally saying the injury would have him out for a bit. Now he is coming back earlier than anticipated, and while the potential for a good game is there, so is the potential for a really bad game. ( At least from a Fantasy Football point of view. )
