Fast Willie - Top 10?? Maybe even top 5??

Postby tHe.pRoFessionaL » Tue Sep 26, 2006 10:35 am

Sunday has to have been great for FWP owners, not only did Willie get the yars he has always gotten, but he ran in 2 scores in goalline yardage - which has to be a great big step in solidifying himself as the uncontested back in Pitt. So this leaves me scratching my head as I think about how many RB's that were ahead of him in the draft not doing so well, and now seeing that he really has the goalline on lock. I really think this guy could be huge this year. Top 10 most definitely, and I really think he has a slight slight chance at top 5. I mean look at last year he has somwhere close to 1200+ yds and 7tds. Take that and give him the full time job this year as he has bulked up and is now seeing close to 30 carries/game plus goalline duties. Take Bettis' 12 - 14 td's/year he has averaged and just give half to Willie and give him 300-400 more yards as the uncontested back you have yourself a 1600 yd 14 td back, I really think that is reasonable too, anyways I wanna hear what you guys think.

Remove the Jags game and he has been a fantasy stud so far. I do think 12-14 TDS might be a little lofty.
A fool and his money are soon parted. I would pay anyone a lot of money to explain that to me.

You can't remove the Jags game, that's the problem. Don't hand him the keys to your city just yet. His two outstanding performances came against a really crappy run D (cincy) and a D who's average age is 48 (miami). If he runs good against other good Ds in the weeks to come, like SD, Denver, and Baltimore, then you can get excited about him and pick him number one next year. :-D

Exactly. He's definately not top-5 if you include that Jax game. I'd say maybe 10th overall, but dont expect similar numbers for the rest of the season.

It's a tough call. After last week, I was ecstatic with my Keyshawn+Parker for Ronnie Brown deal. Now it looks awful. Bottom line is I wouldn't expect consistency out of Parker, but still he should have a few more like yesterday.

if he were on any of my rosters, he wouldn't be in my starting lineup against SD, i can tell you that. look at his game log from last season:
Code: Select all
TEN   22   161   7.3
@HOU   25   111   4.4
NE   17   55   3.2
@SD   10   26   2.6
JAC   21   55   2.6
@CIN   18   131   7.3
BAL   14   63   4.5
@GB   5   13   2.6
CLE   Did Not Play      
@BAL   18   59   3.3
@IND   12   43   3.6
CIN   15   71   4.7
CHI   21   68   3.2
@MIN   14   81   5.8
@CLE   17   130   7.6
DET   26   135   5.2

not exactly the model of consistency, which is what i expected again this season -- you have to play the matchups with him. and i have a sneaking suspicion that najeh davenport gets any goal-line carries against the chargers

Only legit D he has played (Jags) he was shut down. Could be attributed to Ben's poor play though.

What about the fact it took him 4 tries on one of those GL tries. if they kick the FG then he doesn't have the other TD.Didn't look strong at the goalline... I believe it was Parker anyway... Watched alot of games on sunday.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

here are FWP carries from within the ten yd line in the game.

1st-10, CIN17 9:58 C. Wilson rushed to the right for 14 yard gain
1st-3, CIN3 9:52 W. Parker rushed up the middle for 3 yard touchdown. J. Reed made PAT

1st-7, CIN7 7:48 W. Parker rushed to the right for 2 yard gain
2nd-5, CIN5 7:48 W. Parker rushed up the middle for 4 yard gain
3rd-1, CIN1 7:11 W. Parker rushed to the right for no gain
4th-1, CIN1 6:26 W. Parker rushed to the left for 1 yard touchdown. PIT committed 15 yard penalty. J. Reed made PAT

Those numbers arent bad at all. And you have to lose the faith cowher has in parker 4 straight rushes from the 7 and parker is rewarded with a TD. Looks awesome as a parker owner. I believe parker also picked up a couple third and 1s in critical spots.
