Buy low RB's? Here's a couple of ideas

Postby Sp_Da_Man » Mon Oct 11, 2004 4:41 pm

Fred Taylor hasn't rushed for over 100 yards yet but his upcoming schedule looks great (KC,IND, HOU,) plus during the playoffs he plays GB & HOU.

Travis Henry hasn't done much either but Mcgahee doesn't look like he'll take much pt away from Henry. Henry has some great matchups down the playoff stretch as well (CLE, CIN, SF).

Maybe you can catch a guy sleeping or at least not planning ahead.

Exactly why, although it's been tempting, I haven't bailed on him yet. I'm going to need those matchups in the playoffs.

Thanks guys, I needed to hear this... because seriously, he was having goal line carries sniped by Chris Fuamamamamafafafalalllala yesterday and I was literally tearing my hair out...

Do you think Taylor is going to lose enough goalline carries to where he will be in a Duce Staley kind of situation?

Leftwich had a 2 yrd TD run on Sunday. Just killed me since I was playing Taylor and Leftwich was on my bench.

That kind of sums up my season so far though.

You need to do your homework.

"Oct 11 BuffaloBills.com reports Buffalo Bills head coach Mike Mularkey is trying to get RB Willis McGahee more involved in the team's offense. "We tried to get him more involved in this last game against the [New York Jets] and he took his opportunities and made some plays," Mularkey said. "Hopefully this will continue.""

So McGahee is going to get more work. Had more rushing yards then Henry last week, and Henry is hurt again.

On Taylor, if you're giving up bench people, then maybe.

Green Bay will be a MUCH better run stopping team by then... They'll have Jackson back, and he pretty much single-handedly cloggs up the middle.... Teams have been running straight at Green Bay because the other lineman have become so accustomed to Jackson clogging up the middle that they have trained themselves to always work outside, which has killed them with Jackson out... Once he returns, though, Green Bay should be back to normal (as far as stuffing the run goes)....

siggyfawn - mularkey has been saying this all through training camp and the preseason. talking about 2 back sets with the both of them. they have run that 2 back set twice in all of the games. i think mcgahee will get more carries but i wouldn't bank on him doing a lot.

I agree that Taylor will turn it around. He has a good Defense and leftwich can keep the safety out of the box.

But Henry is a lost cause for this season and you will be doing his owner a favor. He still hasnt hit 100 yards or found the end zone, which is the product of a horrible offensive line that really shouldnt have let reuben brown go. McGahee wont gain any yard either, but he will get more of the carries. Buffalo doesnt score so Henry wont score. If you trade anything for him, youll be doing his owner a favor.
