Since he's unlikely to average 14.3 yards per touch the rest of the season, that might be hard to do on 9 carries a game. I'd be selling.


You can trade him for what you want, you know what you're getting out of him and everyone who you trade him too should be able to also. He's pretty consistent and like I said, you know what you're getting meaning you probably won't get any more value than you normally would.


so what you are saying is 120 yds on 9 carries is what we should expect from him every week?

I think the 9 carries per week sounds about right.

Oh yeah - the beauty of him only getting 9 carries a game? fewer fumbles ;-D

If I were to have both Bruce and Keyshawn, which one should I trade and which one should I keep?

Duce Staley isn't a bad buy low right now, Id say. He'll get some long TD runs and receptions, and the Bus will probably break down at some point.

I agree Sweetness. Staley owners are probably disappointed in him today. He put up nice yards and should get the TDs once the Bus is out of service.

Kanez, great point about C. Martin. I forgot to mention him. Sell him right now while his stock is at its highest. He's amazing but the trouble is, he's battling too much history in my mind. He's approaching 3,000 carries which of itself is unheard of in football. Trade him and don't look back.

With that offense, he should be in the top 3 points/week guys. You can trade him if you want....you'll be sorry. I just wish I drafted him instead of Manning (Gotta stop reading all those so-called expert draft books before the draft....talked myself out of the pick :~(). Also gotta stop watching pre-season football games. I drafted L.J. Smith, but dropped him in favor of Witten after he had that monster pre-season game. Yesterdays numbers.....Witten 1 point....Smith 11 points :-t.


This is why we sell high and buy low (because people think Culpepper will throw for 5 TDs every week).
