Is Corey Dillon a first RB

Postby Bears_Fan » Sat Aug 13, 2005 3:56 pm

I think he has one more good year in him. The patroits offense is a sure thing and he got more goalline carries as the season went on. He had some injury issues but his career has been preety injury free. If he puts of last years stats or improves them he could be a top 5 back. If Dillon wasn't pulled because NE was killing opponenets in 3rd/4th quarter he coulda let league in rushing. He may be the 4th best rb.

I think he's got 2 more good years left in him. How good of a shape he keeps his body in will make or break how long he stays healthy, but I consider him a #1 RB, especially in TD heavy leagues.

Last year he was a top ten RB, number 7 in my main league. I don't see him dropping any farther than 9 this year, as the Patriots really haven't lost anybody big on that side of the ball that I can think of, and I gotta believe that he's got a good one or two years left in him. A number 9 RB means in a 10 or 12 team league he'd definitely be a number one guy.

Dillon is a guy to me who is undervalued. I would say he has 2-3 good years left in him. Dillon was the #3 rusher in the NFL last year, he had the second highest yards per game average with 108, also had the second most red zone carries with 5 per game. Top that off with 13 total touchdowns. The offence in New England really hasnt changed from last year either. I would definatly say hes a #1 running back.

Take him without fear. Just a plain solid consistent #1 this year.

He still can be a number one guy, no way he should fall out fo the first rd in a 10 team league, much less a 12

I will never doubt the Patriots system on any level and Dillon is indeed a top flight running back.

At least for the next couple years, I agree. Dillon is a first rounder.

I would definately take Dillon in the first round. He had 2-3 good years left in him IMO.

I took him in the early 2nd round last year and was questioning myself before the season started, but I was glad that I did as he helped me pulloff one of the most amazing comebacks taking me to the finals, only to lose thanks to poor managing decisions.
