I would have a hard time not taking Fraud. His two TDs last season were an abberation. He'll do better. He does have a higher ceiling than Barlow due to the nature of the Jags team. So it would be hard for me to take Barlow over Fragile Freddie. But take him I would. I just wouldn't feel that good about it.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I'll take Fred Taylor here. He's more experianced, and is on a better team too, that should help him suceed as well.

Just a thought...
F.Taylor might be better trade bate...he has a big enough name (people still remember the number he put up in the past) so if he has a couple big game, you may be able to trade him (hopefully before he gets hurt). ;-D

Barlow, but only because of a deeply-ingrained fear that Taylor's legs will eventually just fall off in the middle of a game.

.... or his groin will explode again. :-o

i think Barlow has missed about 3 games in the past 4 years or something.

Not even in the same LEAGUE as fragile freddy.

Fragile....Fraud.......You guys kill me... People alway say Fred Taylor is gonna get hurt. What RB hasnt been at one point and time. Do you people actually know how many games he missed over the past 3 years?????

2004 - missed last 2 games due to injury. (week 16/17)
2003 - missed ZERO games due to injury
2002- missed ZERO games due to injury

Before he went down the last 2 games of last year he started 46 consecutive games for the Jags. How many RBS can say that.....Not many. People love to say how hurt he always is and throw out the "fragile freddy" label but when the do they just show their ignorance. If you are down on him for lack of production, thats one thing but when people say I am avoiding him because he will get injured, they really have no clue what they are talking about.

I am not a Jags fan or a Taylor fan in particular but this is a false label that has always bugged me. I know he was injured often many early in his career but he has proven to be a solid, durable rb....


FYI
Barlow:
2004 - missed 2 games (week 14/15)
2003- miseed 1 game(week 12)
2002 - missed 3 games (week 13/14/15)

6 games in 3 years to Taylors 2 games ........

Apparently you aren't looking at the surgery Taylor had on his "durable" knee this offseason.

Is he starting week one????

That label on him did not come from this off-season.....

Is Mike Anderson fragile? Holmes? Edge? there are a number of rbs who had surgery this off season.


and your point is what???

anderson, edge, priest, etc have all played/practiced this preseason.

Taylor hasnt done anything due to a 'precaution' and is unsure if he will start in week 1. In case you were wondering thats coach talk for NO CHANCE he plays in week 1.
