Did I get your attention? Good, because if you are drafting this weekend I would make it a point to not have to take these 2 RB unless it is absolutely necessary. I am going to talk about both of them and why I think that neither one is going to help you a whole lot.Curtis Martin: Plain and simple. The Jets already were ransacked by the Redskins and lost one of their best weapons in WR Coles. Now we find that they are without Chad Pennington, a much better WCO QB than Vinny T, their backup. In essence they are down 2/3 of their big 3 on offense. So now we are asking Martin to make up for Pennington and Coles. I realize he had an injury at the beginning of last season but when Vinny was in the game, with the WCO being used, Martin looked horrible. I am not even implying that Jordan will unseat him. In fact Jordan is showing that he is more of a short yard specialist in this offense at the moment. Curtis Martin does not have the breakaway speed needed to bust big plays anymore, IMO. Now teams are going to be game planning to shut him down. Can Vinny throw a bomb to a streaking Moss down the sidelines? He will have to in order to stretch the defense. The problem is the Jets have been using the WCO and Vinny is not suited for it. Lots of QBs are/were not. Marino, Fouts, Elway, Moon, none of them were meant for WCO. If the Jets go to a different playbook, I think it would wreak havoc on their WR corps who will be adjusting on the fly. None of this is good for Martin. What was his upside anyways, really? 1,100+ rushing and 6 TD? Maybe 50 catches too for another 350 yards. I think that was his upside. You see Martin's upside no longer outweighs his possible downside, IMO. Martin could also struggle mightily to even hit 1,000 rush and might not get many TD in a punchless NYJ offense. Fred Taylor: Let's see. The #1 WR is suspended for 4 games. There really is no #2, #3, #4, behind him that are worth a crap. Than you add in a lameduck QB that was trying to be dealt to the team we just talked about which means a couple of things.1. Brunell does not have it anymore at all which means the Jags are going to be even more 1 demensional.2. The Jags are rebuilding and don't care to keep Brunell at all. They might even go with Leftwich by mid season. This is not good for Freddie T.Fred Taylor does have that big game breakaway speed. He has not, I repeat not had multiple TD games since 2000. It is now 2003. I think the Jags were a much better team in 2000. Also Mr. Taylor has a medical record that is as long as Martin Sheen's arrest record(63 and counting for various protests he is in). And we have found out he has not always played through injuries other backs would have. I am not throwing it in the guy's face but he makes me very leery of taking him.Bottom Line: Curtis Martin and Fred Taylor fell to the end of the 3rd round in almost all the drafts I was in the past 2 weeks. I think there is a good reason for that. Just because a guy falls 5-10 spots below where every mag and site says they should be, does not mean that you have to find them a home on your squad. Why did the other 10-11 owners in your league leave him alone? Because the upside is not there for gigantic seasons for either of these RB. You have been warned: Proceed with caution friends.
