Is anyone a bit gunshy about Priest Holmes???

Postby SteveTaskerintheHall » Fri May 21, 2004 8:00 am

Last year he put up number one selection numbers all year, but is anyone concerned about his age and injury past enough to pass on him in the first round unless he falls ridiculously far? Just wondering if people here are nervous about him like I am.

Nobody here is nervous about him, he is going #1 or #2 in every draft.

At thirty, the golden age of running back decline, I would be tempted to pass on him this year. It would be a tough call though.

Holmes still has a few good years left in him I believe. His injury risk is nothing to have concern for as last season proved (he's no more a risk to injury than any of the top backs). Though 30 is usually the top age for a running back, I believe Priest is in a unique situation, not having logged as many carries as most feature backs by this age.

The only guy I'd even consider ahead of him is LT.

Priest hasn't had the mileage that most 30 year old starting backs have.

Even if Priest scores half as often as last year, he'd still be an elite back. ;-D

If he scores half as much as last year, he would be an elite back, but there would be backs that are better. That is why this discussion is worth thinking about before drafts occur.

Actually Steve - I am very gunshy about taking Priest this yr. Dont get me wrong - as of right now I would still have to draft him 1 or 2.

I just hope I dont get one of those picks in the draft. :-)

In a redraft I'd feel pretty good about taking him in the top 2. In a dynasty or large keeper, there are 3-4 guys I'd take ahead of him.

I agree Cornbread. It would be easier not having the choice and part of me wants him picked before it is my selection this year.

By the way, it will be cool watching the lions this year.
