Well, I guess we're about to see what he's made of, as his next 5 opponents are:

New England
San Diego
Jacksonville
Cincinnati
Baltimore


If he's still putting up 100+ and a TD on average against those teams, I'll be a believer.... But something tells me we can attribute a lot of his success to the fact that he has thus far faced Tennessee and Houston....

I think he finishes out the year with a 4.2 ypc average (very respectable for a little guy).... But, I think he is limited to 20 carries per game....

So, I think we can expect, on average, about 80-85 yards per game.... And like Tiki Barber and Warrick Dunn, I think the presence of a goal line back will limit him to about 10 rushing TD's....

Are those good numbers? Yes, they are.....

But most people have him as a 4th or 5th RB.... They have studs at the RB1 and RB2 positions, already.... Studs that are being pushed to the bench for Parker....

Personally, I would be taking advantage of Parker's inflated value and trading him high for a Chad Johnson / Torry Holt type.... Both of which are capable of putting up 1500 yards and 15 TD's through the air....



I don't think you're getting Chad or Torry for FWP though, more like Andre Johnson or Michael Clayton. I would rather hang onto Parker and trade off someone like Corey Dillon for Harrison.

P.S.-

Holt's nickname is Torry "Big Game" Holt
Chad Johnson's is "7-11", because he's always open.

I was just gonna post this... Kinda funny since 7-11's were originally called that because that were their hours of business... not always open. ;-)

Parker didn't like the "Fast" nickname at first because he believes he is nore than just fast and can run between the tackles... but it seems to have grown on him.
