The Curtis Martin situation

Postby converge241 » Tue Apr 01, 2003 12:59 pm

little blurb on fanball.com talking about his ankles and him taking it easy in the offseason

The News
Running back Curtis Martin will be limited in his activity as the Jets began their voluntary offseason conditioning program in Hofstra on Monday, the New York Daily News reported. Martin is still receiving daily treatment on his two bad ankles that limited his production in 2002. Head coach Herm Edwards said that he expects Martin to be 100 percent by training camp.

Our View
Martin will probably feel fine entering the season, but there's a good chance that his ankles will break down over the season. LaMont Jordan will continue to pressure Martin for playing time in 2003, and the two running backs will face an improved set of AFC East defenses. All in all, Martin's fantasy stock is probably the lowest it's been since his rookie season.

so is lamont worth looking at as a late draft pick with upside as a preemptive for if/when martin gets hurt for either yourself or trade bait for the martin owners (or if you have a jets nut)?

Sounds like it is time to retire CuMar or sign a big contract and go to a last place team that already has a good RB.

Yeah, I found myself happy not to have him last year. In deep leagues, Jordan was even getting a little run then. I think he may end up taking a bigger chunk of Cmart's carries this season. Their offense is going through alot of changes.
And nice Emmitt Reference :-)

I have been saying it since the end of last season...

This is going to be a wholesale changing of the guard at RB....These are the guys I see getting phased out during this year...some of this isn't tough to call. But opening day 2004 none of these guys make your top 35 at RB

Martin, George, Bettis, E Smith, Garner, Stewart

Garner and George will still be there near the top.

I was never much of a C-Mart fan myself and this news only pushes him further down the list.

Garner may remain near the top for the next couple years, but George and Martin are done, they should get out now.

Let me qualify my statement...

Oakland let two FBs...they now have Garner, Wheatley and Crockett...Wheatley signed a new contract and will see a lot of the carries that Ritchie and Jordan got and I think he will do well....he's decently talented and not beat up from a career that hasn't seen him play that much...

and just watch Oak take MacGahee at the end of the first...
