Interested in Helping a Cafe Writer?

Postby danleroi22 » Thu Oct 20, 2005 1:30 pm

Hey guys,

As you probably know I write the weekly focus article every Thursday/Friday.

Trying to add a new segment that features questions from Cafe members that I will answer within my article.

I want YOU to provide those questions.

Ask a question about one or more of the Denver RBs, or the DEN run-game in general.

If I run your question in my article I will give you due credit within the article.

If you are interested, please PM me here ASAP: http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/foru ... st&u=14735

Thanks in advance!
Questions or Comments? Feel free to PM me.

I know that I've been given more than beyond measure.

Denver's 'running back factory' certainly owes a lot of its success to the offensive line. Which other NFL teams, if any, are developing similar offensive lines? The answer to that might give us some hints about where to find the next sleeper running backs.

On a pure Denver RB note, with Bell's yards per carry so much better than Anderson's, how much longer do you think Anderson will continue to get an equal share of the work? At some point, doesn't it have to become obvious to Shanahan that one guy is clearly more effective than the other?

How about turning this into a more general question... Several starting running backs are currently being outperformed by their backups - Jamal, Rudi, Anderson, and Davis. Where do you see the most immediate fantasy impact - i.e. who will end up as a starter before the end of the year. And, who has the best long-term keeper value. Is everyone going to be gushing over Chris Perry or Chester Taylor in next year's draft?

I know my answer to this question, but I think it would make for an interesting and provoking question to a lot of casual cafe readers who just come for the articles and what-not.

good call... a lot of the teams in the NFL have now gone to RBBC... a very bad thing for FF owners.

It is a little general... maybe I'll pull parts of it out and use them.

Is Alex Gibbs a God? Or just a demi-god?

I know, he's in Atlanta now, but they are still using his zone blocking scheme.
