Fabian Washington

Postby joshyboy72 » Thu Jul 14, 2005 7:32 pm

For anyone who does IDP leagues...what do you think about Fabian Washington as a big sleeper this season? Even more so in dynasty IDP leagues and such...

Rookie cornerbacks are always tested, but have a history of putting up great fantasy numbers... for example Dunta Robinson's 73 tackles, 3 sacks, and 6 interceptions last season and Champ Bailey's stellar rookie season in '99.

Washington is currently slated as the number 3 CB right now, but Al Davis loves having speed on the field and Washington is easily the fastest out of all the rookies, and probably one of the fastest players in the league. He should earn a starting CB job by the start of the season. Having Charles Woodson opposite him in the secondary can't hurt either...it will get Washington plenty of interceptions, or if nothing else defended passes and tackles.

Not to mention the Raiders will probably be passed on like crazy next season.

I'd really like to see Washington hush all the people who had bust written all over him before the draft.

As a Raidah fan I sure hope he excels.

However, right now he is # 3 on the depth chart behind C-Wood and Nnamdi Asomugha.

Nnamdi Asomugha. I wouldn't be surprised if Denard Walker is ahead of him as well on that depth chart...

I agree, I do think there will be a rookie CB that has a big season, but it won't be Washington. He is overrated because of his combine, the Raiders picked him simply because he is incredibly fast. I wouldn't be surprised if Carlos Rogers or Antrel Rolle has a big year, but I doubt Washington will.

Last report that I heard was that Asomugha was a bit ahead of Washington to start, but not by much. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility at all for him to be the starter, especially since he's an Al Davis infatuation.
