Long Term Value Of Tarvaris Jackson???

Postby titans_cafe » Wed Dec 06, 2006 8:59 am

I'm in a 12-team dynasty pool and I've been contemplating adding Tarvaris Jackson to my roster as my current QBs are Delhomme, Grossman and Green.

The kid is raw but may be something special down the road. I'm curious how the Cafe values the kid as I'm thinking of dropping Grossman for him.

Thanks in advance!

i have not really seen him play, but the vikings offense seems to also be in shambles....at least rex has shown some great games, i'd just keep rex.

Thanks ... I didn't intend for this be an add/drop thread. Just looking for opinions on Jackson's value.

Thanks anyway ... still appreciated.

He really doesn't have much value, even in deeper dynasty leagues.

Agreed. Tarvaris doesn't have much value until he has some wide receivers who can catch (and gets the starting gig).

In a deep dyntasy league that starts two QBs, sure. Anything else, I'd be in no rush to pick him up.

While watching the Vikings-Bears game when he came in, I noticed the announcers falling all over him, saying the Vikings invested a second round pick in him and he has the best athleticism at QB on the team (But that is like saying he is the most-talented Baldwin).

I think he is worth a flyer in a dynasty league, especially if you are thin at QB. I know Bollinger surely isn't the long-term answer.

I doubt he sees the field much this year, only if Brooks' injury in more serious than anticipated.

he's got some developing to do, but he's got a lot of talent. still, i wouldnt pick him up right now. grossman probably has more long term value than him anyway. maybe pick him up when green retires.

I think Jackson will be a good pick-up at some point, the question is should you pick him up now. There's a good chance he will be a starter next year, Brad Johnson's not getting any younger and isn't exactly a ball of fire this year, and Bollinger is a career backup.

The problem is even if he starts next year it's not likely he'll be that productive. He's still young and his supporting cast just isn't that good.

At this point I think Rex is still a better hold even in view of his recent mishaps.

He isn't a bad pickup, but dont drop grossman for him- if u can drop someone else, go ahead and take the chance, however grossman is just going through a rough patch now- dont give up on him, you will be sorry later in a year or two if u do.
