What might have been for Chris Brown

Postby mad benjamin » Tue Dec 14, 2004 4:08 am

How good might Chris Brown have been this year if not for injuring his toe? The guy seems to rack up 100 yard games by half time in most of his outings this year. Yeah, the fumbles are cause for some concern, but this is a correctable thing. He is only a 1st-year starter. Anyone think he probably wouldn't be good to finish the season w/1700-1800 yards and 12 TDs if he were healthy?

i'll definitely consider drafting him early next year... although, i'll make sure to draft solid back-ups too. he's very talented.. i just wish he wouldn't get hurt all the time. :~(

Yeah, definitely. Pretty disappointing to be that talented, and then get something like turf toe, which only heals with time.

Depending on how it goes in the offseason for him, I'd really consider drafting him again.

From a fantasy perspective, I'm lucky to have won my league this past week so I don't have to worry about anything anymore...except where to spend the money!

I was really impressed when I watched Brown on Monday Night against the Chiefs. I know....who doesn't look good against the Cheifs? But even though Brown runs upright, he's got an uncanny knack to follow his blockers and make that first cut at just the right time. He also has really good leg drive to finish off the runs.

The only things that seem to need improvement is covering up the ball and healing up that toe.

He should be really good next year as well. Even if McNair isn't a factor, Volek or someone else can lead the offense to a productive season. I'm holding onto him in my keeper league.

His upright running style and his lack of securing the football seem to be the reason for the ball popping out.....I think his upswing is pretty good though......I drafted him late...and I can't say he owes me anything........

He would have definitely been a top 10 RB if he could have stayed healthy this year.

He killed me this week in one league. I needed him to get 9 more yds for 100 for a 3pt bonus. If he starts you can count on him till about halftime.

There in lies the problem..............I remember people posting about him being injury prone.....we'll just have to wait and see..one season certainly can't give the ultimate judgement of a player.....I took a gamble on T Jones C Brown and Q-tip......Id say Brown was the closest to a success.....among those late round picksl..

i hope Brown falls to me in the 3rd round next year im willing to take the hit since i picked steve smith in the 3 round and rudi johnson in the 2nd round and im still in 3 place overall in my league going into the playoffs
