Would anyone ever consider trading the Priest, if they you him? If so, how much would you be looking for in exchange?

If the deal doesnt include A Green, D McAllister, Alexander, Portis or Tomlinson AND improve your 1QB OR 1WR spot then I wouldn't even give it a second look.

Something like a top-7 and top-12 RB, or a top-7 RB and a top-5ish WR would warrant negotiations with me if I owned him.

e.g. Alexander/Barlow or Deuce/Holt.

I'd go straight up for LT2. I smell the end of Priest coming on. FF #'s dropped after week 8 of last year. Only 10 of 24 TD's scored in second half.

First of all, Holmes scored 27 TDs last year, not 24. Secondly, 15 of his TDs came in the final 8 games.

15 Tds in one half of a season is more (hell DOUBLE) than most RBs have all year. So by Chip's reasoning, he's still the man.

And I'm also assuming this is a redraft league.

Basically, youd be nuts to trade away the player who broke the single season scoring record for anyone straight up.

if you are going to make a statement like this, check your numbers. even if it were "only 10" TD's in the second half of the season, i would take that back over anyone, period. you make it sound like everyone is scoring 10 TD's in a season, let alone a guy that does it in JUST 8 games. :-t

yeah, it would have to be something big, blockbuster style in order to pry P. Holmes away from your roster. The guy is simply a TD machine. You can't say with any great confidence that any one player in fantasy football is a sure thing, with the exception of maybe P. Holmes. He WILL score alot of TDs, guaranteed.

I saw the same stats in the Cafe's article by Ryan Fay. Kind of made me scratch my head a little bit (as if having Homes #3 wasn't enough).

3. Priest Holmes, Kansas City
Holmes has been nothing short of legendary the past few seasons, but Portis and Tomlinson are at least comparable now and undoubtedly better long-term. Holmes is the oldest player on this list – he turns a relatively ancient 31 this fall – and cooled off as the season progressed last year. He scored “only” 10 of his 27 touchdowns after week eight, and his yards per carry dipped below four. He’s still going to be an explosive fantasy threat, but don’t expect 20+ touchdowns.
