Eric Karabell (ESPN) has bad news for D Foster owners

Postby Members Only Jackets_ffc » Fri Sep 24, 2004 1:16 am

this is from ESPN FF Edge, by Eric Karabell


Bye Bye DeShaun? I know that Carolina is on bye this week, but still fantasy owners can't stop talking about what DeShaun Foster did to the Chiefs. Foster would have been the top pickup had he been available as a free agent, but he was drafted in most leagues. Now the question I get asked most often is, will Stephen Davis get his job back? I think he does. Everything the Panthers coaches and players have said this week makes me think that. They'll be loyal to him. Davis says he will be ready to play in Week 4, which is NEXT WEEK! He had surgery to repair torn cartilage in the knee. Not major surgery. The initial timetable was 2-to-5 weeks. Foster's 174-yard game might be all we see of him as a starter. As trade bait goes, if you can sell him as more, go for it.
One for the thumb...

Nothing has changed, here... We are still going to be looking at a 50/50 split in Carolina, which effectively kills the Fantasy value of either back... Of the two, though, I would rather have Foster b/c atleast there is always the possibility of a Davis injury, which would immediately cause Foster's value to skyrocket, again...

agreeed ;-D And I think Foster is the better back of the two, as long as he can hold on to the ball. If he breaks off a few big ones, he could put himself in line to get more.

I think you are probably right..

BUT...

Let's say Davis is out the full 5 weeks. Foster buts up 150 and 2 td's a game and 0 fumbles. It is possible, quite possible really. I don't think that could be ignored. I know, you can't lose your job becasue of injury but man, the guy really has potential. I would hate to see this go on as a 50/50.

If he were able to run against Kansas City every week, it would be a lock. :-D

traded him straight up for C. Johnson earlier this week..I don't think Davis will get all the carries. I see about 50-50 split for Davis and Foster.

im not buying it. foster seems more versatile. that offense is going to need a dynamic element to it that ti SEEMS to me Davis can't or won't do. not to mention that davis is a bit older and coming off injury -- it doesn't make sense.

I'm rooting for Davis, but we'll see. It will likely be holding off the inevitable. Maybe we'll see if Davis can get a good game or two under his belt, then trade him.
