Is it time to buy low then? I see a lot of people (even in this thread) starting to panic over tiki. I would think he could be had for a early season superstar like Westbrook, Rudi, or maybe even SJax. Any thoughts?

um, the eaglews shut down tiki. 21 carries for 50 something yards.

I think tiki is quality, but with how porous their d is, with how listless they are starting games in general, tiki coul dvery well be taken out early. Plus, the schedule is brutal. Two games vs skins, boys, one left versus eagles (much improved rush d), atlanta, chicago, jacksonville, carolina.

There area few patsies (hou, tb, tennesse) mixed in, but the Giants bad secondary, bad starts, brutal schedule, and brandon jacobs make me think tiki isn't quite the first-round guy we all thought.

I'd hold him just in case, as he has overcome adversity and being underrated before, but expectations have to be tempered at this point.

Tiki had over 100 combined yards against the Eagles. It wasn't one of Tiki's best days but you can't really say he was shut down unless you measure him based solely on rushing yards. Also, since Tiki is so active in the Giants passing game it's hard to believe he'll ever be out of the game.

point taken. to be fair, it took him 28 touches to get those 106 yards. And he is always talented, but just my impression from watchin the game, he wasn't some majoryly huge factor. he didn;t break anything for longer than 10 yards, and he seemed bottled up to me. the team as a whole didn't have a lot of rushing first downs, and it seems the eagles stifled him. And when you take a look at the other defenses he is facing, there is some legitimate cause for concern.

TIKI IS A BUST THIS YEAR!

He hasn't been a bust yet. He's had one bad game.

just over 200 yards rushing and 0 tds (i think those stats are right lol)

Now if this was Jamal Lewis Posting these numbers ok, but people where taking Tiki 4th overall in drafts this year. If he is not busting what is he doing? I understand he is having some succsess reciveing but still ... 0 tds ...

Big help he is in TD league scoring

On a related note, Charlie Frye leads the NFL in rushing TDs.. If Tiki can't beat out Frye, you know he is done!

His value is pretty low right now trade wise. I think it's worth holding onto him, and seeing what he can do for the next couple of weeks before going on a fire sale.
