Postby J_rob_the_ Baller » Mon Jul 24, 2006 2:07 pm

last year, most people had never heard of willie parker, yet he came in for pittsburg and lit it up.

Anyone have a predictions on who might find themselves in a similar situation this year?

Moats is one FWP clone. Sophomore player, crazy speed, a great game at the end of the year filling in for injuries (although he also had some crap ones). Westbrook is coming back from injury, and the news on Moats from camp is generally positive. Looking more and more like a RBBC.

A guy in a similar situation is Wali Lundy. Completely obscure. Everyone ahead of him is injured or unspectacular. He's not Fast like Willie, and it's not a great rushing offense (although maybe some Denver magic rubs off on HOU), but if he takes the job and (ahhem) runs with it, he will be a good #2 in fantasy.

yeah, but moats is pretty well known, everyone knows what He can do. Willie parker was a guy who didnt even get drafted in dynasty leagues, except maybe extremely deep ones.

Lundy fits the description if he were to come in and do well this season

Cedric Cobbs, Denver. Shanahan likes him a lot and IMO, he is the better back over Dayne and Bell.

Not that I'm doubting your opinion of Cobbs, but we haven't seen anything from Cobbs since the Patriots drafted him. What makes you think he's better than Dayne or Bell?

I was high on Cobbs coming out of college as well. I watch a lot of SEC and the guy was nasty.

Good comparison IMO. Everyone pays attention to Bell and Dayne just like everyone was drafting Duce and Bus.

I think one of my biggest issues surrounding Cobbs is the fact that the Patriots, a team with a great eye for talent, released him so quickly after having drafted him. Much of what I read about Cobbs was that he has maturity issues and lacks self-motivation. Maybe he'll prove things wrong in Denver, but I find it hard to believe he's going to jump ahead of both Dayne and Bell. But, who knows, really. Pretty much every back who's run for the Broncos has come out of nowhere, so Cobbs certainly fits that mold.

In most late-August redraft drafts, FWP was going in a late round, same as Mike Anderson. Moats should be about the same. For redraft.

My Willie Parker this season is Dee Brown. Brown is currently slated as the #3 running back in Kansas City slated behind the untested Larry Johnson and injury-prone/possible retiree Priest Holmes. Herm Edwards has gone on the record saying that he wants to run the ball MORE often than last season, with or without Priest Holmes. Dee Brown is an amazing sleeper for next season who is never, ever discussed.
