Doesnt hurt that he had some great RBs.

Ol Norv does love to pound the ball though, and Jordan has alot of talent. Hes a big runner who should fit well in Norvs offense. I think he would put up pretty good numbers in Oakland.

This is what I'm thinking. I'll take a flyer on him in the middle rounds if he's out there, Jordan has something to prove so he may be a steal.

I would say Jordan will definitely be a decent back next year. I wouldn't have a problem with him being a 2nd or 3rd fantasy back. I kept Duece McCallister and S. Jackson and I think Jordan would be a great 3rd back

Good post Az...nice stats. He really is primed for a top 10 or 15 year. Wouldn't surprise me with all of that offense around him plus the way Norv Turner grooms his running backs. Looks like we'll just have to see...maybe in a year or two we'll be digging up this post and adding:

2005: LaMont Jordan (Oakland) - 1250 yards, 12 touchdowns
2006: LaMont Jordan (Oakland) - 1480 yards, 15 touchdowns

It's possible... ;-D

Meanwhile, Randy Moss will score 30 TDs, closely followed by Jerry Porter with 25, resulting in the most prolific fantasy trio EVER.

Oh, sorry Oakland fans, you can wake up now. ;-D


In all seriousness, it's not out of the question for Jordan to produce that well. There's just no way I'm taking him over someone already proven as a solid starter.

One of my biggest pet peeves in fantasy football. There's no value in drafting "proven" guys. To me, proven=safe pick. Safe picks are how you lose at fantasy football. (e.g., "some proven guys last year", Taylor, Henry, Faulk, that worked well). I don't know exactly who "proven" refers to in this case. I guess we are talking people who are not studs that have done well in the past. Martin, Dillon, R. Johnson, and Portis come to mind. I'll gladly pass on these guys and take a stud WR, QB, or maybe even TE and pick up Jordan a couple rounds later.

You have a much better chance to win if you draft as many studs as you can early and identify mid-round value that has a pretty good chance of producing the same as the guys taken earlier.

This guy is the Thomas Jones of this year (pre-injury) and will be a very shrewd pick. In the Extremely Early Mock (done a few months ago) I got him in the 10th, the latest you will get him now is the late 4th, and thats the absolute latest.
