I figure the bigger problem with Maroney's value going forward is Sammy Morris. He took a number of key carries away from Maroney today.
Which is exactly what happened last year prior to Morris getting hurt. He poached all the TDs in the first five games, same as I expect him to do again this year. I had both last year. And I can't believe how long this league let him sit out there in the draft.
yeah i took Maroney in my money league as a pretty late pick, around 50th overall. not feeling so good about that pick now. they look like they want to use a diffrent back every series. plus faulk is back next week :/
Nope, they want to use Maroney to run the ball down the field (when they don't pass) and then use Morris to punch it in. Faulk/Jordan are nothing but extra bits in the background.
Sorry, I suffered Maroney last year, no way was I picking him again.
I think the biggest surprises of the day were Willie Parker and Micheal Turner.
I don't think Turner is a surprise at all. Every opportunity he ever had at SD was awesome when they sat LT. He averaged over 5 YPC in a backup roll. The only and I mean only reason I didn't take him was because I already had two guys (Westbrook and MJD) with the same bye week as Turner.
