Emmit Smith?

Postby thrash » Mon Aug 23, 2004 12:01 am

Does he have any chance of being a productive back? Its currently in rd 12 of my 12 team draft and hes still around. I only have three RBs, even though they are J. Lew, Taylor and Henry, but I could use another one. I wanna grab Scobey later and hope one of them does well.

Does anyone have any info on Emmit Smith?

Once shipp comes back its all over, but I wouldn't mind trying him out if you got a bye week, couldn't hurt.

unless you have a more pressing need, you can never go wrong picking a guaranteed starting RB
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good

Shipp might not ever come back. This injury is career threatening, not just season ending.

wow, I didnt know all that. I thought it was just season ending. What a short career but that equates to about average for the nfl player doesn't it?

I might not mind plugging Emmitt in on a bye week against a crappy run D, but IMO, in any other circumstance, he's nothing more than a bench warmer... If he's out there in the very late rounds, I'll snag him as a #4 or #5 RB, but nothing more...

Plindsey is about right, simply for the fact he has the starting job Emmitt is worth drafting as a 4th RB, but don't expect much.

please retire Emmitt :-/

I picked him up as a #4...He will move up to #3 if Jackson isn't starting in St Louis (meaning Marshall isn't hurt.) Hopefully I will only need him for bye weeks. I don't want part of a RBBC when I need a back on a bye week..So I will take my chances with him unless someone else appeals to me more when the time comes...

But I would take him with not expecting the world and as a back on the bench awaiting a bye week.

Disappointing that KG chimed in on this thread but didn't plug "Emmitt's going to have a great year" one more time. ;-7
