So should I be excited about LJ?

Postby WickedSmaat » Sat Sep 30, 2006 10:08 pm

Ok, so I know everyone is just laughing at whoever pick Lamont Jordan in the first round this year(me not one of them) but I'm sure there are a few that would have liked to get him(one of them being me) but him falling on hard times running the ball and a bye week, an impatient owner dropped him in my league and I snagged him with my #4 waiver to drop a kicker. Now my question is, should I be excited? I feel like I should be, a legit 1st rounder from last year, being dropped into my lap only because of a bad week. He seems like a good setup into this week against Cleveland(no I am not starting him just yet) but I think it could turn out to be a good thing. What does everyone else think about Jordan and would they grab him if they had a chance?

I believe you should be excited anytime you can pick up a starting runningback off the waiver wire no matter who it is. That being said...Jordan I would rate Jordan as a flex or bye RB 2 at the moment. If the Raiders get wise and decide to start throwing to him..then he would move up.

Getting Lamont off waivers is a steal. I don't think you can be dissapointed since you did get him off waivers. He should produce quite well.

10 team with friends. There isn't one guy who is a newbie to FF this year.

I basically posted this to see if anyone had any faith in him since all I've been hearing is how much he's been sucking. Once I saw him I knew I'd try and claim him and hope he breaks out.

He was a 3rd round pick in my money league, and was dropped for Ron Dayne last week. Nobody wants to spend $5 to pick him up so far.
