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