Corey Dillon...a sell high or a must start?

Dillion is one of those RBs that is a situational start. I would probably hold onto him as a #2 RB. I know in our league that's what he was drafted at. He's a good plugin when the match up right.

I traded him after the Arizona game. If you can't depend on him against Arizona when will you be able to?

If you have the depth at RB, keep Dillon. Dillon in many ways is the ultimate Matchup Stud out of the entire NFL. The Patriots are very deliberate with their game plans. If they're facing a weak run D, they'll pound the ball all game. If they're facing a weak pass D, Dillon will only see 15 carries.

That sort of predictability is invaluable in FF. So if you can cover him the weeks he plays tough Rush Ds, I say keep him on. He will be a Must-Start stud when facing weaker fronts.

um, he ran for 158 yards against ARI, thats a pretty darn good day. He would have had some TDs, but he literally would drive the whole field and then was taken out before he had an opportunity to score

He's only had 1 game of 15 carries. His 2nd lowest carry total (18) came b/c he got injured and basically sat out the entire 4th quarter.


I think its resonible to expect 20+ or so carries a game. Remember, last year NE in their so called 'pass happy' offense still ran the ball 29.5 times a game.

The Pats survived last year in the snow without the help of running game. I wouldn't look for them to change a whole bunch but at least this year they do have a reliable back to go to. While I don't think he'll go for 1600yds., he should put up at least 1200-1300yds. and get his share of TDs too. If you've got him, unless you've got an offer on the table that's too good to pass up, you keep him.

Good points by all. I personally wasn't thinking of dealing him, just wondering what kind of numbers we'll see out of him the rest of the year.

steady numbers...60-80 yards and a td

not bad and this is low ball avg...not including his great days...and DILLON is infamous for busting out some INSANE numbers on certain occasions...

Already done it once...153 yards in week 2 and daniel graham hawked his TD

last week 90+ yards and 2 TDs

Now...my guess is a feasable average minus and plus a TD here and there.
