Do i Have RB problems, can i rely on Priest?

Postby Yo » Fri Oct 10, 2003 11:12 am

Priest's numbers over the last two weeks haven't matched what he has done in the previous 3 or so of the season. I hear about an injury of his hip. I know he has still totalled 100 yards in these last two games, but im worried he will get a serious injury and be out for a while.....many sites including ESPN reckson Priest will be the best RB for the rest of the season....however if he goes down hes no good to me. As u can see below im very low in terms of my RB corp.....I guess the question im asking is, is it worth trading Priest Holmes....and if so who for?
Here is my current team:

Hasselbeck/Bulger/Ramsey
Portis/ Michael Bennet
Priest Holmes
Boston/ Rod Smith/ Bobby Shaw
K.Robinson/Jimmy smith
Shockey/ Da.Clark
J.Elam
Kansas City

if you only have to start 2 RBs, you have no problem. portis and holmes are 2 of the top 3 RBs available. as for worrying about priest's health, if i've said it once, i've said it a million times: all RBs get hurt in the season. all of them! if you trade priest for ricky williams, you'll have the same fears about ricky. that's just part of being a top-line RB -- you get your ass beat from week-to-week. there are other running backs out there that have potentially serious nagging injuries (edge, henry, etc.) and holmes isn't one of them. sit back and don't worry so much -- he won't score 3 TDs a week so i hope that's not what you're expecting from him (or anyone for that matter).

I agree, how did you manage that? I am guessing you traded a good WR for one?

Must be a small league, you sure wouldnt get both those guys in a 12 team league.

Anyway, I go against priest this week, so im hoping he has another down week. ;-D

Could've been an early draft...a lot of people,including myself,were down on Priest before the pre-season came around.

You have a pretty good team. I wouldnt worry so much about your running back situation. You have 2 solid backs.
