Yeah, not sure how he overlooked Mason but oh well. As for Willis, I think he will put up slightly better numbers than he did in Buffalo and slightly better numbers than Lewis put up last year in Baltimore. The problem that remains though is the offensive line. Baltimore's line has been taking steps back for a few years now and they are getting up there in age. I think Willis should be drafted anywhere from pick 12-16 in a standard 12 team league. I can see him going as high as 10-11 to some teams, but personally I would wait until the turn at the earliest.
But if Willis keeps up his work ethic, and the Ravens show some improvement during the preseason, Willis has the potential to slowly start moving up my rankings.

While I think he will turn out to have a decent year, I don't think he will be the second coming of Corey Dillon in his first year with New England.
I mean, I've been burnt by that before. I thought Moss was going to have a monster year in his first year with the Raiders.
There's the rub of FF. The speculative nature of managing your team requires that chances be taken, moreso by those who don't have favorable draft positions. Willis is a great risk/reward pick this year, methinks, he will put up enough numbers not to be why you lost and has potential to post stats that could lead you into the playoffs. I like him late in round 1, early rouond 2. I can't stop looking at Jamal lumbering down the field and imagine what McGahee's speed and power would have produced on those plays.
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Lets be careful to not pat little Willis on the head too soon. I highly doubt he's made a 180 degree change in anything. He's still a spoiled brat, so as soon as things don't go his way in Baltimore he'll be on his little tummy kicking and hitting the ground.
This dude missed 5/5 volunteer camps that could have made himself AND his team that much better?
Good luck Baltimore
P.S. I'm not a bills fan nor a Baltimore hater.
Hey Willis...................see "Curtis Martin" thread in this same forum.
McGahee's always been kind of obnoxious with an attitude problem, but hey who could blame him coming out of the U.
I'd like to see him change his ways and become more of a hard working, blue collar type player. That would be good for him and the Ravens. We shall wait and see what happens with him, if he wants to become more dedicated and hard working then more power to him.
