Maroney has BUSTED out

Postby Legia13 » Sun Oct 01, 2006 6:10 pm

Well, the day we all anticipated has come. Laurence Maroney has busted out for 120+ yds and 2 scores.

What do you guys think we can expect from him the rest of the year?

OMG I am so glad i started him this week! hopefully he can keep this up. i didnt watch the game but from looking at the box score both dillon and maroney got about the same amount of carries(15 for maroney, 17 for dillon) so maybe maroney will start getting more carries.

didn't matter for me. I had maroney and my opponent had Bulger, Holt, S.Jax, and Kjones.

Needless to say, I got lit up.

I reached for him in the third round in my dynasty league. Not so much of a reach now.

I'm looking forward to watching this dominate in the years ahead.

His running today was more impressive than that of any other back in the last two seasons. Very quick with excellent latteral movement.
OK, maybe that's a stretch, but...
I'm not a Pats fan, but this kid made me smile today (and I don't own him on any fantasy squad). I guess NE management got this one right when they said he was the steal of the draft.

Lovin it now, although I started Kevin Jones over him, KJ came through big time today. Even though Maroney is a much more dominate runner, it will still be a ttough weekly choice b/c of the touches. Just have to go with the matchups ....

Third? wow, I 'reached' it seemed like for him in the beginning of the 6th in my Dynasty. But that doesnt make me any less thirlled with his performances ;-D

Got him in the 8th round and am stoked - hopefully the Pats start giving him the entire workload

Maroney should get the bulk of the carries, Dillon isnt what he used to be.
Go Bills!

I benched him for Jamal Lewis at about 9:45 PST this morning. Yeah, that won't be happening again :-P

Stupid last second move.. had Maroney in there all week and then I wake up in decide to change it at the last second. I couldn't bring myself to start a RBBC guy over a starter. But now I see that Maroney is a solid #2 RB under any and all circumstances.

Anyways, it took a 19 yard catch from Roy Williams with about 10 seconds left in the Lion's game for me to TIE my opponent with all of our players done. So, I don't really regret benching Maroney, because the end of the StL/Det game was the most excited I have ever been about a fantasy football game. I had Jackson/Wilkins/Roy Willams vs. his Kevin Jones. I was pounding the table when they brought in Stephen Davis, was yelling at my dog when Wilkins missed the field goal.. man I love fantasy football.
