does Jamal have fumbling problems?

Postby portisfan24 » Fri Jul 09, 2004 3:56 pm

I was looking over last years stats and Ahman Green, widely known for his fumbles, had 5. Yet, Jamal Lewis had 6. now lewis did have a lot of carries, but so did ahman. does this merit a lower ranking in fumble penalized leagues?

In our league we penalize 3 points for every fuble lost but I didnt even looks at the fumble numbers when doing my rankings... I think fumbles are a thing that shouldnt be weighted to heavily wen ranking players simply becasue they can happen at any time.

I had Jamal on my team last season. He had a minor fumbling problem, but not nearly enough to outweigh his yardage/TD production, nor enough to make the Ravens even think about building their offense around someone else. There are plenty of reasons to be wary Jamal this year (fatigue, legal problems, possible suspension), but fumbling is not one of them.

Yea fumbles should be thought about before ranking Rb's. Just look at Tiki, a decent Rb, but he may produce (-) pts some weeks because he fumbles more than he scores.
