Only bright spots on that team right now are LT and Rivers (yeah I'm biased, went to NC State... but the guy is ridiculous.) Next year, when SD probably drafts a WR early and focuses on the line, maybe a Braylon Edwards or a Mike Williams, then LT may have a little bit of help.


Because in runningback years, he's an old man now.

And in runnign back years, he was an old man by like week5 or something of last season. Turning 30 didn't stop him from breaking records, and all the the situational variables (such as not having been a feature back his entire career) indicate the likelihood that normal running back age standards aren't going to apply to him.

If you're so caught up on his age that you refuse to give any merit to counter-arguments explaining why his age is not the alpha and omega of this particular RB's life as an elite RB, then just leave it at that. This is getting really repetitive.

How about that degenerative hip disorder, maddog? should we not factor that in either?

Whether it's a loss of five or a gain of five, a tackle still takes its toll. The only thing that will reduce wear and tear is number of carries. If someone has 400 carries at 5 ypc, that's going to wear them out more than 300 carries at 3.5 ypc.

The WR situation and lack of line? Well, he was in an almost identical situation last year, so if that output was a "struggle", I'd gladly draft him first and watch him "struggle" again.

Thats not what I'm trying to say, I mean that Priest usually only gets hit once or twice a play, as opposed to Ricky Williams taking multiple hits before he goes down.

Your counter arguments are equally as repetitive. Yep, mileage over age, got it.

How about that degenerative hip disorder, maddog? should we not factor that in either?


That hip looked pretty good when Priest was making plays all last year. That was the big worry going into last year, and Holmes proved he had recovered. I'd worry more about Portis missing a few games year season from injuries that seemed to be mounting than I would the hip problem that certainly hasn't slowed Holmes down. (And just so you don't take that the wrong way, I don't think Portis's injuries would keep me from taking him at #3 in a dynasty draft).

So basically, when drafting for Keeper leagues, age and injury history hold no bearing on your selections. got it.
