The RB with the 3rd most receiving yards last year...

Postby Wesley Walker » Sun Aug 22, 2004 7:43 pm

Moe Williams. As a big fan of his, I hope he isn't underutilized this season like he was towards the end of last year. That said, he still got some decent numbers even when not the featured back in Minnesota's offense and, over the course of last year, averaged .5 TDs per game. Not bad for a guy so low on people's draft boards this season.

With Onterrio's supension,a nd the possibility that Moe could be traded to Miami, Philly, or somewhere else where another back is needed, Moe ought to be moving up those draft boards.

As far as that stat -- 3rd for RBs in receiving yards, that surprised me when I was searching through stats today.

Where do people rate Moe now? And what are his chances of being traded?

last year bennett was out for all of two weeks ifd i remember correctly. onterrio got the carries and moe caught the balls. Im pretty sure moe did not have that many rushing yards. I think he is going to be a short yardage specialist this year, but Im not too sure. either way, I wouldnt draft him.

Moe will still post decent stats this year on MIN, good/great if he gets a starting role if traded.

He'll be the 3rd down/goaline guy again as well as another threat outta the backfield. I expect 800-1000 total yards with 7+ touchdowns.

from rotoworld:

Moe Williams will not take over as the Vikings backup RB with Onterrio Smith suspended.
The Vikings will only use Williams in short-yardage situations and on some third downs. Rookie Mewelde Moore has passed Williams on the depth chart and has squashed Moe's fantasy upside.

Moe will vulture some td's in the goal-line.

2 years ago he had 7 tds as the goal-line back.

I think he is a decent plug-in when your starter has a bye, if he steals a td.
