Should I be concerned about this guy with injuries and Tony Hollings? Or is he gonna be a stud like many people think?

He came along pretty nicely last year. I'd wait until the regular season starts before you start gnashing your teeth.

It's too early to tell but I think DD falls into the category of RBs who should be handcuffed.

The question I would ask about whether or not to handcuff DD is: are you really that hyped about the Texans running game if DD isn't in there? Easy answer for me is: no.

DD will be a real solid #2 RB I think. He may have some question marks but other than the top 5-6 RB's who doesn't?

I wouldn't be surprised if DD put up nice numbers but I am definitely concerned. Davis could succumb to injury, and one can't ignore the fact that Hollings may get 10-15 carries a game. If Hollings handles his control problems I could see him taking a large chunk of carries from Davis.

my thoughts exactly...he's a great pick in the draft for someone at like 7 or 8(12 teams) who wants to go RB-RB

my thoughts exactly.

He could be very good.
He could be plagued by injuries like last yr.
He could lose significant touches to Hollings.
If you want to risk a 2nd rd pick on him, know that he isnt a sure thing and there are backs that carry similar risks that could be had later.

having watched him play last year, he will get his touches when healthy. capers loves his receiving ability almost to a fault. he likes the threat he poses on the checkdown from a botched passing play. Capers is not a RBBC guy and will give dom the rock in the red zone, but will spell him from time to time, it's just that this year the guy he spells him with can actually play. it's like the running machine in GB, they may run 35 times in a game and ahman may only get 20 of those, but he's still the focus of the attack. dom davis as a #1, not a wise choice, as a #2, you've done very well

I HAVE MOSTER FAITH IN DDAVIS, actually I have to...When Ricky "Puff Puff, Get the hell out of town" Retired. I was left with DDavis and Stephen Davis in a ONE keeper league. Believe me if i had better i would mention it. For obvioius reasons I had to keep DD.

Seriously, I consider him a top 15 back if not better. He can run he can catch. Well rounded player. I followed his progress closely, because i was getting tired of Ricky if you can believe it.

OFFTOPIC how many teams have won their fantasy league with RICKY as #1. Not many, thats my point. i was considering DD before Ricky retired. i probably didnt have the balls to release him though.

DD isnt the type of RB to be handcuffed...Hollings had not great or even avg numbers when DD was down...I not wasting roster sopt for him. :-t
