How do you guys have Duce Staley ranked?
I am a Pittsburgh fan, and I really like the possibilities with him there, but I don't want to reach for him becaus of my "Steel Curtain Colored Glasses"
Deep leagues (like 16 teams) he's a #2 RB. 12 or les, he's great for a #3 in my opinion. Being an Eagles fan I'm probably a bit higher on him than most people, but I've also probably watched him play more. He still runs through people, but he's also a receiving RB. I'd been saying since it was apparent Duce wouldnt get resigned that Pitt. would be a great fit for him, and I think he'll be a featured back again there. If your league awards RBs for receptions his value goes up a little more.
I'm guessing 1200+ rushing, 500+ passing yards, not so many TDs though maybe only 6-8 as Bettis will still probably see goalline action, and there are enough WR threats to get the passing TDs. Then again if Pittsburgh's offense comes together, this could be Staley's best year of his career.
