Griffin Overrated

For a little dose of reality, that was the KC defense he ran against tonight. If KC had opened against MIA, we would most likely be talking about Travis Minor going 1400 - 10 TDs this year instead.

Griffin will be good, but not this good.

This is sort of a prediction, but the prediction forum is closed so I brought it in here.

Im gonna say <1000 yards <6 TD


Ahem, the rest of my team is Penny, Taylor, C. Brown, B. Westbrook, Horn and An Johnson. Can you please make some bold predictions about them sucking too?

actually the KC defense was supposed to be better this year, and who knows how much of last nite was Denvers Oline + Griffin making KC defense look bad. I know the Denver players were talking about Shanahan having a great gameplan, and Vermeil said Denver did alot of things they never saw before. I do know every back that Denvers had ever since i can remember have consistently been the top RB's in fantasy football. Last nite pretty much reinforced that fact.

I hope you doubters keep doubting and losing in your leagues ;-D

I think that Q-Tipp is a good back. KC has an average Def. IHave him at my second WR/RB pos. and he and Plummer took from losing 58-107 to leading 108-107. So far I like him.

Griffin wont get this every game, but I can forsee 1400 yards and 13-16 TDs.

Exactly. I don't think anyone's gonna be expecting 150 ypg and 3 TDs, but around 100 and a score probably isn't a lot to ask from him.

That is being very generous to KC's defense. Sure they got Gunther to come in this year, but they are still near (if not at) the bottom of the pack. I'll be interested to see if Griffin, Bell, or even Hearst gets the goal line carries as that should affect Griffins value quite a bit.

I agree. KC was THE worst team in defending the run at least in the ypc category. I think it was 5.2 last year. That is a first down every two rushes... horrible.

Now, we also know that the Denver running game is exceptional. The rb's may not be exceptional but their game sure as hell is. Pretty easy to run through a 5 yard hole. Griffin is not overrated as a FF back since he is in Denver. Put him in Miami and he may be on the level of Travis Minor.
