Moore vs. Droughns

Postby Warpigs » Tue Nov 01, 2005 1:29 pm

I thought this would be a neat topic to discuss/debate. I see both backs as fairly equal. MMoore and RDroughns are both on struggling teams with tough schedules, but are both the primary ball carriers. Which of the two do you think will be the best fantasy player week in and week out?

I would say Moore. I own both of these slackers as bye week fillers, but I def think moore has better potential than Droughns.

Moore seems to be a good target out of the backfield, and with Culpepp out, there is a better chance that Moore will be running it in near the endzone.

i'd have to go with moore just because he doesn't have the "I'm not in Denver anymore so i can't score" bird flu. the guy can't punch in one vs houston and detroit? :-t

The last I checked, Moore only has one TD. Not exactly a huge difference, especially when you consider that Minnesota has a better TE (someone who will snag more redzone TDs than anyone at the TE position in Cleveland).

well he actually has 2 td's one rushing and one receiving. so that's two more than droughns has and droughns has been the starter since the frst game (while sharing a little yes). i don't really know if i would say one is hugely better than the other. they both are in terrible positions on crappy teams with ancient QB's or a possible soon to be rookie starter in cleveland.

using socring of 1pt=10 yds 6pts=TD fumbles -2 (both have 1)

memo 56

droughns 57

pretty comparable so far. but the difference is memo is involved in the passing game more than droughns and atleat has some better players surrounding him that rueben does.

i'll have to look at the scheds going forward but i could see them both being comaprable but atleast you know you will be getting close to a hundred combo yards with the outisde chance of scoring with memo. droughns you could get 80 yards with no chance of a td.


also to add a 3 week comparison of the two

weeks 6-8

memo 33 pts (bears packers panthers)

droughns 22 pts (ravens lions texans)


moore wins that facing stiffer competition.
