Faulk is he worth it

I have Green and TO in a keeper league. Would I be safe drafting Faulk with my first pick?

I wouldn't not in a draft this early. If i was drafting say the end of august then if he is still playing then I might
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

I am a rams fan, and faulk is so scary. He is just so injury prone and there is a good chance he will get hurt again this year. If I were you I would stay away but there is also a chance that he could have a great year.

I don't see how so many people can overlook Faulk as a second or third round pick and #2 RB. The guy has put up 1000+ yards and 10+ TDs for the past six seasons, irregardless of injury. Even in the past two years where he has started a respective 10 and 11 games, he has still produced well in fantasy. Faulk figures to become even cheaper in the near-future as he misses parts of training camp and the preseason..... just like he does every season.

Faulk is definitely a risk at this point, but he could reap huge returns. If Faulk manages to miss 2 games or less in the coming season, I think he could easily become the steal of the draft. It's very rare when you hear steal of the draft talk from a guy you pickup in the 3rd round, but whoever thought Faulk would fall so far so fast.

S. Jackson has been falling pretty late, but to take a complete stab in the dark, I'd say 6th-7th round (?)


Is that way off?

That sounds about right. Just make sure your draft isn't the day after another Faulk rumor comes out, otherwise some goober may take Jackson very early.

I think it's also a smart move to pickup Lamar Gordon in the very late rounds. If anything he is early season insurance that Faulk will stay healthy, you can drop him once Jackson secures the backup job.
