He seems to think that Parker is worthless, which is definately not the case. I am taking bets on how many weeks it will take staley to get injured again.


No - Im just the voice of reason. Two weeks ago you literally had people believing HWP was a top 10 RB for the rest of the yr - top 5 even. My stance was always simply that his value will never get higher - he was the primary RB against arguably the softest 2 defenses that PIT was going to face all yr.

One of the things you will recognize HeavyG is that I rarely like or dislike players - its their situations that I scrutinize.

OK - my stance is simple - HWP value will never be higher than it was after week 2 - thats always been my stance.

Now ask yourself this basic question - has his value increased, decreased, or stayed the same since after week 2? Be honest.

Actually that is not true, you have been calling him a fraud this whole time. When I have more time I will pull up some previous posts to prove it. I have never thought of him as a top 10 RB YET but he is definately an up and comming back. So far his value hasn't been higher than week 2 but to say it will never be higher is definately a reach. He is going to be the future of that team at running back, mark my words if you would like.

News: Duce Staley (knee) and Jerome Bettis (calf) have recovered from their nagging injuries, and the Steelers expect to have their services available for Monday night's meeting with the San Diego Chargers. However, according to head coach Bill Cowher, Parker will remain in the starting role for the foreseeable future, even though the two veterans are healthy. In three games this season, he has 327 yards and two touchdowns on 64 carries.

Classic case of "Love him or Hate him". He has been the difference maker in a lot of FF games this year, so everyone is biased based on whether they own him or not.

If you didn't pick him up, you hate him. If you did pick him up, you love him.

That alone is a testament to the impact he has had on fantasy football. By the way, his actual value doesn't go down until he consistently gets less carries and less yards. That all remains to be seen.
