Let's talk about Stephen Davis's long term value...

Postby Wesley Walker » Fri Oct 17, 2003 2:01 pm

Davis has been a stud and he goes against Detroit and Arizona in my league's playoffs (Weeks 15 and 16).

But did DeShaun Foster show himself as a guy who will continue to split carries with Davis even if Davis is completely healthy? Or am I just worrying too much?

I guess time will tell. If Davis gets 90% of the carries, then I'm not worried. And if Foster gets a third of the carries for a week or two but can;t get anything going (like he averages 2 yards per carry), then I'm not worried. But if Foster will diminish Davis's value from this point forth in the season, then I'm worried and may wish to trade Davis while his perceived value is still high.

Actualy, I just got Davis in a deal in which I basically sent LaDanian away to get McNair AND Davis. I also had to give up Santana Moss and Trent Green but, still, screamin' deal.

Anyone have any thoughts or insider information about how Carolina will use Davis and Foster?

Barring injury, Davis will continue to be the man in Carolina. Foster will come in to wind Davis, but look for Davis to continue to get almost all the carries.

Next year might be a different story.....

Davis was getting an insane amount of carries and the panthers had said they didnt want to wear him out for the end of the season. Foster proved he could come in and spell Davis no problem so my best guess would be that Davis will get about 20 carries a game with Foster seeing maybe 8 - 10.

If you have RB depth now would probably be the best time deal him before its clear that Foster will steal his carries. On the other hand, make sure you get enough from him in return as 20 or so carries in this offense is still better than most other backs out there.

Also, Davis should continue to get the goalline carries so that helps out too.

I've read that Stephen Davis will only lose time if he gets tired and then Foster will play a down. There will be NO RBBC in Carolina.

I think, if Foster gets at least 10 carries a game, you'd be better off starting Davis and Foster and that will be better than most guys 1-2 RB starting combo in your league.

KFFL recommends Foster as a "strong start" this week -- and that report was published today I think. Of course, that doesn't mean it was writtem today. It may have been written when Davis's condition looked more dire.

At this point, I'm just hoping I make my league's playoffs and that Davis gets the vast majority of the carries against D-town and Arizona.

Davis is #1 - Foster isn't worthy of starting on any fantasy team quite yet. The man is an amazing runner, and will definately be used more and more in their offense. NEXT SEASON
(if Davis doesn't get injured or inexplicably start to sucK)

I wouldn't fret over it too much... You have both backs, so you should be fine. However, if it would give you better peace of mind to trade for Taylor, do it. But beware that Taylor ALSO has a history of injuries.
