Does Arnaz Battle have fantasy value?

Postby mikerobots » Wed Sep 21, 2005 9:13 am

He catches the ball, makes runs, and had two throws in week one. I drafted Battle in the 26th round of my 8 person league to show ND some love, but does Arnaz have any serious fantasy value? We start two WR's and and WR/RB.

he has value as a no. 5 or 6. Could blossom at the end of the year I think. He's their best playmaker by far. Been tooting his horn all preseason, and i'm not about to give up now.

8 person league, 26 rounds of drafting, and you only start 2-3 WRs? I don't think he'll ever see the light of day in that league. Not sure if anyone drafted after the 10th round will ever start in that league :)

Im sure Willie Parker would. :-b

I think Battle is worth a longshot if you have the room for him.
Lloyd isnt the real deal.

i know the qb situation looked bleak last week. but consider this, even with the relatively low amount of attempts Rattay had in week 1 battle was still targeted in a big percentage of those. Again last week, he caught ~1/3 of rattays completions. so even though we might not be scoring a lot of points, I think he could make a decent bye week fill in as I think he will get 4-5 receptions a game and around 50-60 yds a game.

So in point per reception leagues with 10 yds receiving, he will get you roughly 8-10 pts a game with the occasional TD. At the end of the year that puts him around 60 receptions perhaps and 700 yds. This isn't particularly great, but as a bye week filler I think you can almost guarantee this mediocre production.
