Should I pick up Jeff Demps?

Postby Reapers » Sun Aug 19, 2012 1:31 pm

I am thinking about dropping Donald brown (ind), lance Moore (no) or Nate Washington (ten) and pick up Jeff demps? He was a bad ass at Florida and won a medal in the Olympics. He got picked up by new England. What do you guys think?

I wouldn't.

It looks like Demps is going to be used mainly as a kick returner and special teams player. He has little to no value as a RB behind Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead and Brandon Bolden

I agree. He's going to be a returner primarily. Unless your league gives huge bonuses for that or you have a roster spot special for that position, I wouldn't waste a roster spot on him.

Don't do it. Demps is going to be buried on the depth chart, he joined the team late, and NE is a passing team.

Thanks everyone. I saw he was picked up and I thought I read they were Putting him at slot, so I thought maybe it would be a good idea. Now I'm definitely glad I didn't.
