Still holding onto those thoughts. With a little more desperation every passing day. :-o


But Barry Sanders was a god sent down from Mt Olympus, all the rest are mere mortals! :-b



Was just thinking that... MJD is a great back, don't get me wrong, but Barry is very arguably the greatest RB to step onto a football field, at WORST the third greatest. Thar be a bit of a difference there. On the flipside, I understand how that can be a curse... :-b

In retrospect I was perilously close to blasphamous. Forgive me Barry, I will stick more needles in my Wayne Fontes voodoo doll*.

At this point, If I'm an MJD owner who didn't make sure to handcuff Jennings in the later rounds, I'd be a bit worried. Jennings is a solid runner who has proven he can shoulder the load if need be, a legit RB2 if given the chance.

First time here, I was looking for more fantasy football boards to take a look at.

I'm a Rashad Jennings owner who does NOT have MJD. The guy who had MJD isn't biting yet or getting worried it seems. I'm afraid if i hold too long, he won't be as valuable. If I give him up too early, I might not be getting my money's worth. What's a guy to do?!

Have you been in contact with this MJD owner? He could (and probably should) be sweating a little but just doesn't want to get gouged. Rashad Jennings is more valuable to a MJD owner right now than a non-owner, so I would initiate some trade talks. I think you could get a WR4 or so back. Thats a decent haul IMO because I'm in the camp that believes MJD doesn't miss a game.

I contacted him last week and he didn't seemed too worried so I said I'd check back with him within a week or so. I plan on doing so one day very soon.

Did anyone see the MJD interview the other day? He looked like a confused homeless guy. I don't know where his mental state is at right now but I do know the interview made me feel even more uneasy about touching him inside the top 50.

The length of his holdout bothers me. Guys usually don't perform great after holding out a long time.
