Nabbed both of them in the draft last night.

I am really high on Griffin... If he can stay healthy, I think top 10 is possible... I would only want Bell as insurance...

I'm also high on Griffin (maybe not top 10, but certainly a solid 2nd tier back).

I hate to commandeer this thread, but it's on subject -- would anyone trade Alstott to acquire Bell as insurance?

Heres an interesting little factoid:

Since 2000 (using Yahoo, so I probably could go back further into the TDavis days but...)
Since 2000, DEN has either had 1 RB who finished in the top 5 for rush yds every yr, or had 2 RBs split carries equally (2001) where their combined yds would have put them into the top 5.

I think that if Griff can hold onto the job all yr, he is a lock to finish in the top 10 in rushing yds. Thats not saying top 10 fantasy back, but he has a good chance at it if you put much value in historical trends.

I like Griff.
I just traded Randy Moss, Emmitt Smith, Josh Scobey and Rothelsberger, for
Griffin, McGahee, Warner, and Peter Warrick.

So, I hope I got a great deal, and I think I did.

I don't think it's likely, but it's a possibility. And Mikey...yes. Why not? Alstott is garbage.
