L. Coles foot problem?

Postby Magnum » Sun Aug 22, 2004 8:55 pm

A guy on sports talk radio commented that Coles foot may be a real issue this year and may be an issue all year again.

Is there any truth to this? Should I be concerned.

Coles is my #2 WR on my first team and I will be drafting a second team on Wednesday night.

What do you guys think?

I've heard nothing like that...He's not on their injury report.

Coles' foot problem has been going on for more then a year. He played all last year with the injury last year and still had good numbers. I'd say if hes your #2 you are in great shape. I have him as a #1 in one of my leagues and am still confident.

I'm not a huge Coles fan. He's one of those guys I just have a feeling like I can get someone better for where he's usually drafted.

Coles opted to NOT have surgery this off-season, so he will play in 2004 with a nagging foot injury. They think he should be able to play thru it, but it makes me feel a bit nervous about him. Probably will still be a solid #2 though. I liked him a lot better fantasy wise when he was Pennington's main man.

Coles is as good a #2 WR as you can reasonably get. He has the same foot problem last yr too - apparantly it didnt bother him then either.

I know he played through it last year... but it might make me inclined to take Mason / Sant Moss / Steve Smith type WR ahead of him...

its close, in that range - an argument can be made for all of them:

SSmith pros: only downfield option - shows signs of brilliance
SSmith cons: undersized - one yr wonder?

SMoss pros: has size and skill - with solid #2 partner might open the field for him
SMoss cons: one yr wonder? - with solid #2 partner might have opportunities taken away from him

Mason pros: solid performer over a few yrs - very good offense
Mason cons: getting older - either Bennett or Calico might steal redzone looks.

Id rank them like this:
Mason
Coles
SMoss
SSmith

Yes, in an idiotic move - Coles opted not to have the surgery.
A few weeks back, i was hearing that he was having some pain in his foot, when trying to turn sharply, so he was basically just running straight in practices and such.

lol.. that's exactly how I had them ranked before overthinking this Coles issue. I also have Horn in that same tier (it's my 5 man 2nd tier after the Top 6 guys) but now I'm considering juggling them a bit. what to do, what to do???

my gut feeling says
Mason
SMoss
Coles
SSmith
Horn
