Tiki Barber Validation

Postby josebach » Thu Aug 28, 2003 9:34 am

I have Barber as my number 2 back. I really like his ability and his attitude. I'm counting on Levens NOT getting the goal line carries just like Ron Dayne didn't get them last year. Everything I read about him gives very low expectations. Anybody besides me think that he's going to be a top 10 back by years end?

(Remember he had 270 total yards against Philly)

I'm hoping for big things from him this year too. I have him as my 2nd back in a couple of leagues.

No, but he's still a good #2.

no0o0o.....he has no offensive-line....and last year when he had an offensive line he had 8 games with 74 yards or less....And had no rec. TD's. I see a big drop off for him this year. I dont think you have to worry about levens though.

Good Luck,
Guest

He had no Offensive line last year either. I think they will be better this year, baring injury.
Tiki's a good no 2.

I like him. His offense has many weapons, so there's always a chance for him to get 2000 total yards. His value is boosted if receptions are counted for points, and assuming he stays healthy, he's a good #2 back.

Everybody with Tiki in your lineup, this is really good news.

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/2887/news


The last 10 games of last season, inlcuding the playoffs, Tiki averaged 19.3 fantasy points a game. Those are top 5 numbers. Hope he keeps it up.
