Lets talk about Ricky Williams (MIA)

Postby Raf » Tue Jun 15, 2004 2:05 pm

Will he be back to old form this year? What does everyone think? How is the o-line this season? He could be a great value pick between the 6-8 spots. I currently have the 6th spot and I am torn between Alexander and Ricky. I'd like to go with the safe pick in alexander but I think Ricky can really pay off... What does everyone think?

I just sent an article submission to Arlo about Ricky and his situation. Honestly, I'm wondering exactly what he'll do myself -- however there are a lot of indicators that he'll really bounce back this year.

It all depends on Boston, IMO

If the off-season acquisitions do well, I think we can expect a huge season out of Ricky. However, I haven't heard anything positive about AJ and I'm not sure what to expect from Boston. If defenses are forced to respect the deep ball (not those 5 yard tosses from Fiedler), Ricky will be able to bring up his YPC and make owners a bit happier than last year.

his # of carries over the last few years and his 3.5 YPC last year are troubling. alexander would be my choice with ease.

It may make sense -- just like jockeys wearing ads on their uniforms and MLB putting adds on bases for Spiderman2 -- but it doesn't make it right.

The guy who started this thread wanted information about Ricky Williams. What about him? He didn't want this polluted with ads for your league.

Let's get back to Ricky Williams for the original author's sake. You can argue your point elsewhere.

As far as Ricky, I think Boston and Chamber's presence will really help open things up, for sure, this year. He's in better shape than last year. My biggest concern is the O-line really not improving since last year...

Not sure who the guest is, but I also agree with his viewpoint. It's really tough to determine some of those higher-end mid-firstround running backs. Alexander is nice -- but also greatly inconsistent for me last year. Gave me many a headache since he never seemed to have a big game when I needed him to. Duece McAllister can be a stud, but doesn't get into the end zone enough. Could that change this year??

In the end, I think you have to go Ricky and hope for the best. It would be best if you can wait and see what happens in training camp with the QB situation and Ricky's overall health and presence.

I will be drafting Alexander ahead of Williams this yr. If Deuce is available, Id target him before both of the others.


As for Steve - please dont hijack the threads like you did today. Classless.
