I like him just as much as Caddy, Lamont Jordan and a couple others who were ranked considerably less than he was. I think his touchdown totals will be closer to his 2004 totals than last years. And yes, I'm an owner, but I'm an owner only because I specifically targeted him.

I like him as a #2RB. Not sure how it will play out but reports are they want to get him more chances in the passing game and on sweeps so he can work in space.

I think he'll have a big year yardage wise but not as many TDs as people seem to believe... the Buffalo O is still a mess and even though Losman seems to have taken hold of the starting gig, his WRs and TEs are nothing special (aside from Evans), which will not help Willis since opposing Ds will focus on him

He's a very good #2 back just dont expect that many TDs cause they will be hard to come by for Buffalo this year IMO

I don't see any reason why he should improve upon last year's numbers. The main thing hindering him was his offense last year, not being injured which is a BS excuse. That offense has not gotten better, it has gotten worse with the loss of Moulds.

i think willis is a good #2 option, but like others said i dont expect a big increase in td's or yardage....i actually took westbrook over willis at the end of the 2nd, because i think westy will get more td's.

He's in good shape, has lost 10 lbs, and is looking faster in camp and pre-season. Also, Buffalo will hand him the rock in the red zone, since JP Losman is no stunner.

I see 1300 yards and perhaps 9-10 TD, which is good as a lot of late-1st, early 2nd round picks will produce.

I expect a good year from Willis.

He's in better shape, apparently feels he has his speed back, and will be used in the passing game more in an attempt to get him in the open field more often.
