Regarding 2004 potential for Priest Holmes

Postby MikeKid » Fri May 28, 2004 2:44 am

I remember reading that 1 or 2 key lineman left the Chiefs, I think one to the Bears. Anyway, do you think this would be a concern for Holmes owners/potential owners? 8-o

Even so, I'm sure the coaching staff has done a good job with their replacements. Unless the Chiefs get a big-time WR (someone like Burress), they're still going to rely heavily on Priest. He's still one of the top 2 fantasy backs at this point.

Besides, how much blocking do you really need to go one yard for a TD as he does so very often... ;-7

I would think that if anything suffers it will be his carry totals and yards - not the TD totals.

Remember he sat out quite a few times during the season to make sure the hip was fine. (Not to mention all the garbage tds to Jason Dunn).

Im only aware of John Tait going to the Bears, I think that is the only linemen that they lost. Sure Tait is good, but I wouldnt put him in the Orlando Pace or Ogden category. Priest's prodcution really shouldnt be effected by his leaving.

Though they lost Tait, they did get Welbourne who is a solid if not above average lineman.

Priest will be the man in fantasy football once again this year.

I definitely think he's gonna put up huge numbers again. I expect a dip in TDs because I can't logically expect him to break records every year, but even a "dip" in his TDs still may lead the league. :-)

I think he will finish #1 again, though his Tds will drop a bit. Still a solid year for him, a potential new WR would be nice, and Tait is gone so thats not good, but like dog said Welbourne isnt too shabby

He is getting old (31 in October) but his body hasn't sustained near the punishment that a seasoned NFL runningback would have at this point in his career. He was only the starter 1 year in Baltimore and the past 3 in KC.
