Anybody with Domanick Davis are you having this problem?

Though I'm flirting with a sneaky Rudi Johnson start, I'm sure I'll come to my sense to start DD alongside Shaun Alexander this week.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

This is definately the question of the week here.

He is certainly an every week starter now that he has put together a few good games in a row, including one pretty impressive outing against Indy.

Obviously, you won't sit Holmes, A Green, Tomlinson, Portis, etc. for him, but it is a no brainer if your second back was W Green, Dillon, George, Martin or someone else not having a good ff year.

It gets much harder with those second tier backs like Tiki, Shipp, or Edge because you want to think that your guy is a stud-to-be, but he hasn't lived up to expectations. You ask yourself every week, "Will this be the week?" and hold your breath. Well, I sat Tiki last week and started Davis and it worked.

If you have any second tier RB and Davis - who is certainly second tier and rising - use the matchups to determine who will start.

Rudi is a good play, Challie. I see that Dillon has been down graded to questionable early this week, so??? With Carr hurting the Panthers will concentrate on stopping Double D.

I have no qualms whatsoever about starting DD behind Ricky and Jamal. Moreover, given his hotness of late, I would start him over any "second tier" back out there (e.g. Tiki, Edge, even Fred Taylor, etc.). I'm betting that he handles the pressure well this weekend. But hey, I'm a gambler. My prediction: 91 rushing yards, 32 receiving yards, 1 TD.

I'm right there with Cliff Harris. This is my 4th week starting Davis. I'm starting him with Jamal Lewis and over three games, Davis has better total numbers. Not only is he ripping off C-notes on the ground, he's poised to be one of the top pass-catching backs in the league.

Me too. He's starting along side Clinton Portis and Troy Hambrick and he's posted better points than both the last coupla weeks. I'm not sorry I picked him up and I sure as hell won't be benching him any time soon - short of a DUI and reefer possession rap.

if you trust d-davis, then you should hold on to him and try to trade one of your bigger "name" backs to upgrade at another position.

another owner in my league was complaining that everyone else is retarded for not enetertaining his d-davis trade proposals. my advice is hold on to him, and shop somebody like travis henry (in the case of the owner i just mentioned) instead.

it's amazing how much weight a name carries, even as numbers pile up behind an unknown. take advantage.

Ive started him the past two weeks and Im riding this horse till he breaks down or hits the rookie wall. So far he's done great and I dont see why it would stop, back up QB means more dependence on the run and lots of dump off passes to the RB. GOod for D.Davis no matter who he's playing.....
