"All that was left?" I'm pretty sure he was the consensus #4 pick in this year's draft.
Yup. I got him 5th.
Got knocked out of the playoffs and into the toilet bowl. Lost in the toilet bowl by .05. Now it looks like I have a great chance at the $80 my league offers in wk 17 for top score.
went at the top of the 2nd round in ours... BJ steals TDs and we are a 50/50 league (1 pt per 10, 6 pt td)...
consensus #4 my tailpipe
You play with some idiots if they let him slip that far. Sure he doesn't get the goal line but look at what he did in 2005 in the same situation. He was a top 4 RB last year.
This year the oline lost a few key players and Eli sucked. But I'd still take the risk today if he slipped to me in the 5th spot. The only guy that beat him that you could have taken arguably in the same spot was SJax. Noone thought Gore, MJD, Westy, and Parker would step up like they did. All posed greater risk than Tiki.
