Marion Barber...future?

Postby roroco » Mon Oct 31, 2005 9:49 am

Sorry if this is a re-post...I did not see a topic on this.

Listening to Parcells and seeing this kid play, he is looking very sharp for a rookie RB. Once JJ gets back from his injury, will this kid have much fantasy value?

I am planning on trading him high (probablly to Jones owner since he is stuggling), but I know Parcells loves to run with the hot hand and this kid's handshakes are burning people up...Will I be giving up a good thing here?

My three full time starting backs are Kevin Jones, Fred Taylor, and Westbrook.

i dont think he will have much fantasy value. jones will get the bulk of the carries, but i expect to see jones's amount of work go down. id say jones gets 20-25 carries and barber/thomas/thompson get 10-15

No more feedback on this...?

This guy can be the next Willie Parker...or the next Najeh Davenport...with out the injury of course.

I think that basically everything that was said about A Train in regards to carries in the preseason, now applies to Barber. I see Jones getting his 20-25 carries per game. However, if JJ struggles or has a mental error at a key point in the game then watch out b/c I think Parcells will have a shorter leash with Jones with Barber backing him up instead of A Train.
Still looking for that Eagles trophy case...
