Sell high on Droughns?

Postby Shockers » Mon Oct 11, 2004 12:18 am

This guy looked like the fantasy stud we all thought we emerge from the Denver backfield sooner or later. We just didn't (still don't) know who it would be. If you could package a decent QB i.e. Pennington, Brady, Brooks along with Droughns to improve to a C-Pep, Manning, McNabb would you do that at this time? Or risk waiting to see if he will be the feature back only to find out that it will be a rbbc in Denver and lose out on some good trade bait?

I think Droughns is worth taking a flier on but keep in mind that Carolina's run defense played pathetically bad. If you could upgrade to someone like Culpepper I'd do that in a heartbeat.

PRETEND he is griffin WEEK 1 and dump him. Actually pretend you are a griffin owner who still has him. :-P <---ME. Who cares about what type of possible numbers he might have. If you think about it Droughns and QTIN have a few similarities.

-Never a regular STARTING RB
-AWESOME first start
-against weak Defenses
-Following performance will never be close to, or equal FIRST START. QTIN we are all aware of his last 3 starts. i know droughns has only played one game but this has DEJA-VU written all over it. If im wrong. Good at least Fantasy football will have more productive RBs vs Injured useless players.

Get rid of him now and let somebody else gamble on the DENVER RB situation. ;-D

totally agree with undefeated. Sell now !!

However, I only have one caveat: I told the same advice to an owner of curtis martin in my league after week 1. I feel bad about that. But this can't be the same, can it ?

If I could pull off trading him someone like Brooks or Brady I would do it in a heartbeat. Griffen likely comes back next week and I see them sharing carries. So sell now if you can

You won't gert much for him. One good week does not make him a trading option. Myabe somebody's backup QB, whick could be nice.

I just think its too early to even talk about what you can get for this guy. He's part of a backfield that is sure to split carries.
