Jamal Lewis?
Dillon?
McGahee?

I've seen a lot of gripes from those owners. And I'm sure they'd disagree with you.


Jamal Lewis I understand, but Dillon and McGahee have each had 1 good fantasy game and 1 bad one. Anyone very upset already is overreacting.

Corey Dillon is averaging 12 points per game, not great, but still serviceable numbers. McGahee had a 100+ yard game and one game he bombed in. I fail to see how they compare to Jamal Lewis, who hasn't hit 100 total yards yet.


they don't. Lewis is in a bomb tier of his own.

As a McGahee owner, I can tell you that the buffalo offense is not sitting easy with me. I thought Losman would be more proficient. Every skill position player is suffering. Sure he got a 100 yard game. whoopdiefreakindo. If they can't get the ball TO the endzone, then McGahee is this year's Portis. Great, 1300 yards, but 5 TDs.

That sir is a first round bust.

Like you're going to get argument from me on that statement ;-)



Somehow I doubted it.... LOL....

Yes, Randy might be good for 1600 and 16 TD's this year.... And those are killer numbers, but T.O. has record breaking potential with the way the cards have been dealt in Philly.... He's got a proven stud at QB, who looks his way first on each and every play.... That offense flows through Owens....

Collins is an decent for his age, at best.... And there are LOTS of other weapons in Oakland for him to work with.... So, while I think Randy will have another pro-bowl caliber year this year, I think Owens has a legitimate shot at some of Jerry Rice's numbers if he can stay healthy.... 1900 and 20 TD's is not out of his reach....

Are they both studs? Sure....

Is Owens in a better situation than Moss? Definitely....

In all three of those leagues, it seems to me like your success is driven more by your non-RB's than by your RB's....


Actually, the RB that has been kicking ass for me is Willie Parker. I grabbed him off of waivers in all three leagues and he is in the W/R slot on each team. One of the big keys to success in FF is making waiver moves. The fewest I've made thus far for any of my teams is 10.[/quote]

LOL.... Thanks for that little tidbit.... I'll try to keep that in mind.... And here I was wondering why all my teams always suck.... It must be because I don't do that waving-wire thingy you are talking about....

I disagree. I still think Moss is in a better situation. It took a soft matchup for TO to catch up to Moss this past week, but the principal reason I prefer Moss is because OAK is going to be in too many shootouts compared to PHI and that usually plays to the star WRs benefit. Age and injury history also play a role in my ranking Moss ahead of TO.

I think its going to be very close, but Id rather have Moss at this point. Either player could reach 20 TDs this yr, and both should have been considered 1st rd picks. I had Moss as my #5 overall player heading into this season, but I missed out on TO more often than not.

Seems to work for me.


If you can get a stud WR or stud QB in the 3rd round, I see no problems at all drafting RB/RB

Plindsey, I think you're vastly undervaluing some performances, either that or playing in the TD 20 yards = 1 point format.

Edge - as many said is a high yardage RB, but won't score too many TDs. Well, so far, he's averaging 140 yards per game, and he's played two of his toughest matchups Baltimore and Jacksonville. He's on pace for 2248 total yards. That's pretty solid for a 1st round pick in my book.

Tiki - He's only 3rd overall in RBs right now. Week 1 he turned in 122 total yards and 1 TD. That's not a mediocre performance by any means.

Rudi - Averaging over 110 yards per game, on pace for 1848 total yards, with an improved ypc so far. He's currently 11th amongst RBs, right around where he would've been drafted in the 1st round. He's not been incredible, but he's been over-acheiving so far.

Priest - Now he is underperforming, but he's underperforming at an a projection of 1440 yards and 16 TDs, which is still 1st round quality for a RB.
