Does Booker's value rise with the addition of Gordon?

Just wondering if this should help his value at all.

I would think it helps everyone's value on Miami. Not much, but opposing defenses are going to have to respect the run more now than they would have with Minor or Morris in the backfield.

I'd say the it will give him a minimal bounce at best. It's not like he's the 2nd coming in Miami and they also didn't do anything to help the o-line situation.

Hell NO!!! Booker is too old, too slow and just not that good anymore :-t . MIA still has o-line problems and adding Gordon will not help much. I think Ricky knew what he was doing when he "retired" last month ;-).

IMO, Miami did what they could to upgrade their offense on such short notice. Maybe adding Booker will spread things out a bit and give defenses 2 Wrs they must respect and that may help Gordon out a little. But I'm not expecting the world to be set on fire by anybody, either. But who knows? That's why there are surprise teams and sleeper players. I think Gordon is a darned good ww pick up and I hope to plug him in on wk 3 when a couple of my backs are on a bye. I think he could be used as a spot-starter when the matchups are right unless he proves to be a reliable back. I think he was a better pick up for Miami than Jackson, A-Train or Verron Hayes.

Ah, but this post was about Booker, wasn't it? I don't think the presence of Gordon helps Booker as much as the presence of Chambers does.
