Priest is #2

Postby stomperrob » Fri Jul 15, 2005 1:40 am

I see in checking fantasysportscentral that they have Holmes now listed as the #2 RB after LT - Alexander slipping because of his holdout threat??? This rankings are based on the averaging of 10 different fantasy sites.

Damn, when I read this, I thought it was a post about Larry Johnson getting named starter! :-B

I see most mags placing Priest a bit higher than Shaun because of the holdout threats. I'm still believing that Shaun will play even though he's threatening.

Priest is #2. He's a risk.reward player, but he has a higher reward at his position than any other player you can draft. Most RBs aren't a lock for 10 TDs when healthy. LT and Alezander are, hence why they're drafted highly. Priest is a lock for 20+ TDs if he stayed healthy, that's incredible value.

;-D Bingo. Couldn't have said it better. I don't know if there will be a bigger make or break player this year than Priest Holmes.

This ranking also tells me that that contract negotiations with SA are a bit more nasty than first thought. I don't know if he'll go for the full blown holdout but I also wouldn't be surprised to see a much more concerted effort to trade him if talks continue this way.

If I am at # 2 in re-draft or keeper... I take SA at # 2.

Just my preference.

Landing LJ is a must when drafting the Padre, but the production from the Chefs RB spot is worth it, IMO. Hard to take him at #2, but should he stay healthy he will put up #1 numbers. 1,500yds and 20+ TDs would shock on one.

Id actually be suprised if they only got 20 TDs.

BTW mooch - Im glad to see Ive become so important to you to put me in your sig, but honestly, the majority of my opinions can be defended with statistics. :-b

That is exactly as I see it. Some say the insurance pick in the 6th is too high a price to pay, I don't think it is for that kinda production. Because LJ will produce too if Priest falls.

That's 2 posts in a row that I agree with CB on........is the end of the world is nigh???? Or maybe we just disagree on Julius....yeah, that's probably it.
