Remember, it's one game. I love Priest, and would happily have drafted him in the middle of the first. I thought--and still do--that he'd have a good year. I expect him to put up great numbers, for say half the season... the injury risk is too great.

Nevermind Priest, how about that KC O-Line?

They were blowing San Diego away.

The injury risk is too great? Greater than, lets say... Ricky Williams? Greater than, lets say... Marshall Faulk?

Priest Holmes is no more likely to get hurt than any other running back that touches the ball as many times as he does.

I highly disagree. I think Faulk and Holmes are huge injury risks, largely because of their history and the way they are used in the offense.

If the fantasy draft was today, I think you'd have to be crazy not to take Holmes #1.

He is especially valuable in my 12 team league that awards 1 point per catch, 1 point/10yds rushing or receiving. Got me 36 points then sat out most of the 4th quarter.

people should have been taking Holmes at 1 even before the season started.

I wish I only could have been lucky enough to have had a draft position to do so.

I admit I was wrong to rate Portis (#1) over Holmes (#3), but I'd much rather have done so and get maybe 5 fewer points a game than to have picked up Holmes, had him fizzle, and then gotten 30 fewer points a game.

Besides, have you seen how much Plummer is stinking right now? Portis is going to be the MAN in Denver, at least for another 6 weeks.
