Latest Dillon Buzz

Postby The Sandwich » Fri Mar 12, 2004 10:52 am

John Clayton of ESPN was on the radio out here in Seattle yesterday. He said that the move for Dillon from Cinn to Oak was pretty much a done deal. The two sides and agent have agreed to everything with one exception. The GM from Cinn wants too high of a draft pick for Dillon. Once Lewis kicks his ass over the weekend, this thing will be done. Could be any day now but for sure by early next week.

he would probably do better in denver than anywhere else. but the raider's O line will be much better than cincy's this season.

I believe that would really up the value of Dillon if he is the full time starter in Oakland. He might be worth something then. No RBBC hopefully in Oakland. Dillon still has a little left in the tank and he really is the perfect nasty Raider. Plus Rudi now moves up into the top 15 RB's and is a true sleeper.

Don't look for a huge start from Rudi with a rookie taking snaps. Until Palmer gets a chance to get his feet under him, teams know to stop Rudi. He is a good runner and will do fine this year, but don;t be stupid and start picking him over your Green, LT, and Stephen Davis backs.

I think Dillon will do better in either system compared to Cinn. Denver has a better O line and Shanahan makes probowlers out of every RB he touches. I think the Raiders are in the tank for a few more years but it is still a better option for him then Cinn.

Actually I have thought that the move out of Cinn is a few years too late for him. Wish he had done it 4 years ago.

What I mean by "Sleeper" in that comment is that I believe that Rudi is capiable of being a top 7 RB in FF.

Every year 4 of the top 10 RB's fall out of the top 10. It's the FF GM to find out who those new 4 will be in that top 10. That way your 2nd tier RB will be a true 1st if you can pick the right fella.

There are different degrees of "Sleepers", I believe this is one.
