Fisher value

Postby ateam » Tue Oct 25, 2005 9:31 am

As a JJ/Deuce owner, I was stoked to have picked this guy up in my deep league.

I see his schedule is brutal, and my initial thoughts are to deal him, however.....


With GB probably trailing ALOT, he will not only be the only guy to try to establish the run, but also

Catch a ton of balls out of the backfield, and

The highest probability of punching it in, in the red zone.

This guy is quite intriguing, any thoughts or projections????

I agree. If your league counts PPR then he could be a nice pickup despite the brutal schedule GB faces.

I don't get it.

Why call it: "injuries AND PLAYER updates" then if it's only "Injuries"?? :-?

It's for updates on injured players... :-? Don't feel offended by a thread move; we're just trying to put it in the best place possible. ;-D

No, I'm not offended, just was hoping for clarification. I've made the mistake several times previously then for my lack of interpretation.

Thanks. B-)

Fisher will have value simply because he is a starting RB in the NFL, but you have to understand he has a very limited upside due to GB's lack of a running game, lack of a defense that can sustain a running game, and brutal upcoming schedule. He does catch a lot of passes, so he does have a bit of an x-factor built in to projecting what he'll do.

As for trade value, I cant imagine you would get much for him right now, but if an attractive offer comes up the by all means give it serious consideration.

I agree with that 100%.

Hopefully he pulls a Davenport and hits for 2 TDs this week, then all fools rush in for trade proposals!! :-D

I don't see the Pack running the ball very much at all in the foreseeable future.

They don't seem to be able to run it, they don't have a very experienced back and will be playing from behind a lot.

Fisher has value as a starting RB but I think that Antonio Chatman is the better ww pickup in GB at this point.

oh, they'll run it against my bengals. why would they not? the bengals are bored by defending the run--they really can't be bothered. wouldn't surprise me to see fisher rack up 150 yards and 2 tds this weekend.

pains me to say it, but in sort of a good way...like when you were 7 years old and losing your baby-teeth? same thing.
