He is arguably the 2nd best wr to EVERY play the game, and he's still playing like he's in his prime, with arguably the greatest qb of all time when its all said and done, there isnt any other wr you could probably have with a greater chance of scoring then harrison...he can score any week easily, and to make matters worse if you bench him when he explodes, and you lose because of it you will feel like crap guaranteed lol...I know champ is champ, but its not like TO didnt make him look foolish when he played for philly, so marvis is definately talented enough to burn him, and its not like manning needs much space...


you draft marvin to start him the entire season, he's the other "safe" pick with peyton


:~( :~(
Luckily I stilled won my matchup with Marvin starting.

If he would have been shut down, I think it would have been a good reason to talk, but when he gets hurt while blocking in a freak kind of way, I don't chalk it up as a prediction won.

True, I did not expect Harrison to get hurt. But following my advice would have helped fantasy owners avoid the ole' goose egg, nonetheless.

I guess the injury affected the verdict.....but that is something to keep in mind: marvin, while obviously still a great route runner with speed, is getting a bit frail after all these years. The TO comparison that LS2throwed wouldn't work the same because TO is big enough to play physical with bailey and probably just run over him. Marvin would have to rely on his speed/wit, which bailey can match.

Maybe this is the year Wayne finally surpasses Marvin? I thought last year would be Marvin's downfall, but he exploded at the end of season.....and beat my playoff team

Never Bench Your Studs.

You drafted these guys because they're good, not because they will occasionally have good matchups. Good players surpass good/bad matchups.

Seriously - would you consider benching LT for a bad matchup? Or LJ? Or Gore? Or Carson Palmer? If so, I want to play in a league with you!
