Grabbed him in late rounds too. People in my league still think he has no value.... HAHA

Picked him up off the WW after the 1st week. He is my #3 behind Willis and JJ. He has started 2 weeks for me so far and done great.

Then either your league is filled with morons or you drafted very, very early.

In a 16 team league there is likely every single starting RB and all of their backups drafted (only 4 per team).
What do these years have in common?
1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, 1944, 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, 1967, and 1996.

I'm glad I was able to steal him in the 9th round. I subsequently traded him and a couple of others away for Shaun. It's worked out for both parties.

Last-rounder for me...as the other RBs I drafted were McAllister, KJones, Arrington, and Anderson I'm pretty grateful that he's come through the way he has.

Jones was a WW pick up for me. What a steal!! He is a stud, I don't see that changing, barring any injuries.

As for Parker, everyone knew fast willies production would diminish once the bus and staley got healthy. I never proclaimed him a steal, justKK a 3 week wonder. I hate RBBC!!!!

I got him in the 5th round and Benson in the 15th. NOBODY had faith in TJ but, I knew better. ;-D

How he went undrafted in many leagues is beyond me. How he went undrafted in a 16 team league is amazing. Anyway, I grabbed him in the 9th or 10th round and he's been rock solid. Which is good because the Dom has been stinking up the joint.
Still looking for that Eagles trophy case...

hes saved you, for making a bad draft pick in arrington, course, i made the same mistake, but not until drafting LT, and S-Jax...
