I guess I'm the only one here who will say, "YES ABSOLUTELY, he will have a Priest Holmes like season. Priest Holmes 2000 looks about right."

LOL :-D Nice one KG. Faulk is a mediocre #2 back and a garbage #1. He just can't stay on the field anymore, and he won't ever be healthy. I would prefer he retires after this year so he can bow out gracefully while he has some talent left him also. Sort of like Walter Payton or Jim Brown. IE not Emmith Smith.

Emmitt Smith: 4 carries 22 yards in the first pre-season game. He's about to tear it up this season.

I don't see how everyone can hate on Faulk so much. Obviously the guy has missed playing time in each of the past few seasons, but it's not like you're scoring a goose egg in each of those weeks, I mean you have backups for a reason right? In the weeks that Marshall plays, he is still a dominate fantasy player.

2003:

100yard rushing: 5/11 games
Consecutive 100yard rushing games: 4
Games with a TD: 7/11
Multiple TD games: 3/11
Games with 20 yards receiving: 8/11


Sorry to burst your bubble Marshall Hater's, but those numbers are good enough to crack the top 10 RBs in points per game. The 5 games that Marshall didn't start last season, if you had an even halfway decent backup RB, you would have scored easily as many points as a top10 RB. How can that be considered a "mediocre" #2 RB?

Sure now you just have to ask him to schedule his injuries around your bye weeks. Then you are set!!! In other words he is just too unpredictable. I like to take risks, but I am not taking one on him this year

STL's O-Line ain't what it used to be, Mike Martz is not a "mad scientist," he's an arrogant know-it-all, and Faulk will be lucky to start even half of the games on the schedule this year.
Priest Holmes-like season ?
What, is that some kind of joke or something? In fact, I have STL missing the playoffs this season, barely...

12 team, H2H, hyper-performance, keeper (5)

Start 9: QB, 1/2RB, 2/3/4WR, 1/2TE, K, D/ST

Keepers: Deuce, Rudi, CJ, Plax, Foster

I already have Priest as my lone keeper in my money league so I could be tempted to draft Marshall, with two provisions.

1) I grab Steven Jackson. Not even a question.

and

2) I grab a good/decent #3 RB.

I would not call Faulk a complete failure this season. He is a huge risk, and a poor #1, but he is a fine 2nd back IMO. If you are willing to take a risk, he could put up huge numbers and eclipse many backs currently being ranked ahead of him. The knee problem lingers and is worthy of concern, but I can safely say that it is being completely overblown. Saying he is mediocre back is preposterous, and the guy still has stuff left in him. I'm happy to nab this guy in the late 2nd/early 3rd.
