KC's RB situation: Uncharted territory?

Postby Wesley Walker » Sat Sep 24, 2005 5:57 pm

This situation in KC, where it seems Priest is pised for yet another monster year and Larry Johnson is emerging as a huge fantasy force: Is this new? Has this sort of thing ever really happened for, ore or less, a full fantasy season?

I've been trying to think of some sort of precedent, and I can't.

And as for Rudi Johnson and Chris Perry, Does anyone think the Bengals offense can appraoch the potency of KC's, allowing both of these guys to have big-time fantasy years? I think the accepted wisdom is that Rudi J is the real thing, and that Perry will get very limited time this year, but perhaps distinguish himself as worthy of a bench spot in dynasty leagues. Can Perry have a big 2005?

In a word: No. How are you comparing the Bengals to the Chiefs? The closest thing COULD be Jackson and Faulk, but Martz will never commit to the run over the pass. So, no.

Ive been wondering the same thing. I just keep thinking Priest and LJ cant both have fantasy starter numbers in the same backfield. I dont know if we can say for sure that this will happen the rest of the season after just two games.

The first week both rbs had ridiculous numbers but in the second week if it was not for Priest getting hurt LJ wouldnt have scored the TD from the 11 yard line. I think that the stats are a little misleading. Yes LJ will have a good game from time to time but i dont really expect him to have more thant 5 to 10 carries, 30-60 yards and every once and a while he'll get a TD.

i guess time will tell.....

Marcus Allen and Bo Jackson played for Oakland at the same time.

Good one. The 1990 L.A. Raiders...

Jackson
125 rushes for 698 yards, 5 TDs

Allen
179 rushes for 682 yards, 12 TDs + 1 receiving TD

I'm predicting better than this for the LJ/Priest combo, though.

I'm not saying that the Rudi/Prerry situation has the potential to be anything ont he same scale as the Priest/LJ thing. But I do wonder if Perry can't emerge this year, not so much with rushing yardage, but with TDs and the occasional big, big play -- without cutting into Rudi's production, for the most part.

But it's a question more about the Bengals offense in general, because I realize that for two RBs to have great fantasy years, the offense on which they play must be able to put up 25+ points week in, week out.

LA! right forgot that part. I'm guessing the Padre/LJ combo will put up better numbers than the Allen/Jackson combo.

1982 season, shortened to 9 games by strike...

Chuck Muncie rushed for 569 yards and 8 TDs, with one receiving TD, for the Chargers.

Also for the Chargers, James Brooks rushed for 430 yards and 6 TDs.

Not too bad.

The '85 Cleveland Browns comes to mind. They weren't monster backs, but Mack and Byner were both very impressive together.

1,462 total yards and 10 TD's for Byner
1,401 total yards and 10 TD's for Mack
