Dante Hall as a wideout?

Postby George_Foreman » Thu Sep 09, 2004 1:08 am

will Dante Hall be useful this weak in leagues that don't emphasize return yards? through an odd series of events, i have him on my team while return yards are valued at 50 per point.

this weekend, however, he will essentially be the number 2 WR for KC against Denver. some people are saying he could potentially have a big game. i'm not sure i buy it entirely, but since i've got him, my thinking is why not get a start out of him before he's dumped?

what numbers should i expect from him this week (and this week only) as KC's number 2 WR?

Someone has to catch Trent Green's passes...so Hall & Kennison are the prime targets at wideout. I might take a gamble & start Hall as my #3 WR.

Priest and Tony will be the main pass catchers with hall falling to 4th option.

that being said, i think i'm forced to use him in one of my leagues. i'm hoping for a few yards and a td. i think that's a lot to ask for though.

Yeah, Dante Hall is on the map because of his kick returns. If not for that we probably wouldn't be talking about him.

I don't expect him to be a great wideout, especially since the coach had to tell him that he has to do more on the team than return kicks. If being a WR wasn't his main focus to begin with I don't think this year will be the year for him. Maybe next year...

I'm intrigued b/c last year Steve Smith and Santana Moss broke out as small-fast receivers who used to do more returning than receiving. . . .KC's other WRs are old and don't impress me much

still, not intrigued enough to pick him up in a league that doesn't score return yards. . . yet

The Chiefs are gameplanning this year to get Dante more involved. They want him to touch the ball 10-12 times a game. I saw a report where they will line him up at various positions in the offense (wr/hb/fb) in a slash role as well as pr/kr. He is one of my sleepers this year. If he is available in your league stash him on your bench and see how this plays out.

Whoa there PeteDog.... What do you think your doing. Ive had that avatar before. Im the Punchout guy around here


Hall might not be a bad start in a big league, he could catch a long pass or something, but i wouldnt bank on it

Pretty funny, I was going to reply to PeteDog's post thinking it was a Shatner post.
Anyhow, PeteDog is right on, they are going to get the ball to Dante. I've read that they've designed specific plays to get the ball to him 10+ times a game. Great guy to have on your roster.

It appears the tide has turned Shatner. :-b

Petedog was the first "punchout" man in town, and it looks like you've been copying him the whole time.
