How many people got burned starting D. Staley Sun. night?

Postby ultra-buc's » Mon Nov 14, 2005 1:25 pm

I for one did. Everywhere I read he was favored big time, enough so that I benched Clinton Portis over him, mainly because everyone was making great points about the Buc's run D. It was pretty hard watching Portis break loose, and then watching Cowher give Bettis and Hayns the goalline carries. The question now is: What do I do with Staley? I would have benefitted more starting Mike Alstott or Greg Jones. I mean if Cowher is going to always give the rock to Bettis... and Willie Parker is healthy, then Staley doesn't have mucgh value does he?

Well - Staley did put up better numbers than 5 of the last 6 Fast Willie Parker games this past week (last week too).

It also remains to be seen how much value both Staley and HWP have when both are healthy - my guess is that it will be muted anyway simply due to the loss of goalline carries.

I wouldn't say I was burned, but I needed a better performance out of Staley to win this week.

This is what it looked like for me...

Clinton Portis: 144 yards Rushing, 9 Recieving, 2 pt Coversion, TD = 22 pts.

Staley: 16 ReYds, 64 RuYds. = 7 pts.

Big F'n differnce there... even Droughns had 17 pts.

I started Staley in my league.
Not up to some of the projections. It's true.
But I wouldn't call 80 yards/0TDs "burned" exactly.
My 2 cents,

I'm kind of tired of it actually. I had Parker, dropped him for Staley last week. Bettis just steals too many goalline TD's...I'm thinking of dropping him for Jones of Jax. We'll see... ;-D

I wouldnt say he did bad but I wasnt satisfied.

I was preaching that he would have a big game through start and sit section all week so apolgies to them. I was expecting a 100 and a touch almost as a lock.

Pitts runningback situation will just be a mess fantasy wise for the rest of this year i'm just going to stay away from it.

I had held onto Staley all season, and actually traded him away on Sunday just before game time.

Put him in a package deal and acquired both Stephen Davis and Cedric Benson.

Now Benson's out 3+ weeks.
