Where does Dillon Rate among RBs...

Postby schmackattack » Mon Sep 15, 2003 7:16 pm

Would you rate Dillon as a top ten RB? Is he even in the top twenty considering he plays for the bengals?

I have him as my second starter behind LT (who hasn't done me much yet) and I have Barlow and Mack on the bench.

And the only reason why he’s not a top ten back is because he’s too inconsistent.

i took jamal lewis with the #10 pick,,i had corey rated just behind him. sure it hurts him that he plays for the bungles because they are out of it early very often, but i've had him down through the years and he has monster games that win you the high score weekly prize. maybe not this year but i see them improving under lewis and next year could be corey's best. but i still see him as the best #2 rb in the fantasy league.

put him on a half decent team and he is a top 5 back!!!
he did, afterall, USED to own the single game rushing record.

I think Dillon could have the most talent in the league (arguably, of course), but he seems to be kind of a moody runner. It almost seems like he's phoning it in sometimes (but perpetually crappy o-lines surely play a factor), but still produces. He made no big secret that he hasn't been happy in Cincy the last few years, but I think this year might be different. He seems to get along with Coach Lewis, and the Bengals are nowhere near as bad as they were last year. If Cincy wins a few games and Dillon stays healthy, he'll certainly bounce into the top 10. I agree with the 10-13, maybe 15 placement, certainly top 20. And, like someone mentioned above, he is completely capable of putting up video game numbers any week. Plus, he plays Cleveland twice this year (ask Jamal Lewis how good their run D is) and Arizona, Houston and San Diego once each. The possibilities are pretty good he could finish in the top 10.
