Ricky Williams loses appeal - Out for 2006

Looks like it's another year with the Pats guys. I do have to say Ronnie Brown's stock just took a quantum leap. For the draft this fall, I'm thinking second round at earliest?

Ah, Ricky we hardly knew ya. I have faith in Brown but what concerns me is our depth...were Brown to go down Miami would be in big, big trouble at RB.

hmm... i have the 7th overall in one of my dynasties. :-b

ronnie's stock soars, and the dolphins will be looking for a backup running back.

No surprise here, I don't think anyone expected him to be re-instated.

Honestly I am a little suprised that this wasnt overturned considering it wasnt marijuana. I guess some peoples reputations precede them like Artest

yeah i had read some fairly encouraging things on rickya's behalf since the appeal was held. i thought he had a good shot at getting it overturned...i was even trying to buy low on him in one of my dynasty leagues. :-t

I am still a little leery of Brown...I mean in my opinion, Miami's schedule is pretty tough. Sure, he's probably worth a late 1st round selection, but there's a chance he could still disappoint - especially with an unsettled QB situation. :-o

Ricky still does owe money on his contract though so I would be very surprised if he didn't come back somewhere in 07. I'm sure someone will take a chance on a guy with his kind of talent....they always do.

Second round? Try mid 1st, late 1st as the latest. In a dynasty he's not slipping past 8, probably not 7. Maybe he falls to 10 in a redraft league.
