Joe Addai (1 Viewer)

What do the sharks think of Addais dynasty value. What would it take to acquire or to trade him?
Bad time to sell.Good time to buy.I think he is a top 10 back (especially in PPR leagues), but many owners are upset over the way this season went, so it is a good time to buy low.
 
After a lot of research I drafted him with the 1.5 pick back in 2006 and have valued him almost as high as Switz since then, but finally sold him three weeks ago for the 2009 1.5 and a 2010 second rounder (of a poor team, so the pick should be around 17-21 next year). I would love to see him do well, but in all honesty I really think there's a fork stuck in him. It REALLY took a lot for me to trade him, but I feel great now that I've done it. Kind've like a Band-aid.

FWIW, I think I got a steal. I think proper value for this cat is a pick in the top eight of the 2009 draft. Good luck!

 
I'm done with valuing Addai. His performance is uneven, his health is a bit of a concern. Since midway through 2007, his performance is shaky and he may be spelled too often to warrant a high draft value. I, fo one, would be afraid to start him week to week. But, that's just my feeling.

 
Addai is overrated IMO.

Unlike the previous poster said, I most DEFINITELY would not take him within the top 8 picks of the 2009 draft...I probably wouldn't take him in the top 3 rounds, he's a lesser RB who can't stay healthy and his avg per carry has steadily gone down ( quickly) since he came in to the league - in 2006 he avg'd 4.8 per carry, in 2007 that was down to 4.1 per carry, and now 2008 was 3.5 per clip. :yikes:

He has barely topped 1000 yards in two of three NFL seasons, only once has he scored double digit TDs in a single season..

not much of a receiving threat, either, averaging just 35 catches/yr.

perhaps I'm missing something, but even Derrick Ward had better rushing/receiving stats in 2008, and he's not even a starter or a full time player :tinfoilhat:

RB's I'd take ahead of Addai:

Peterson

Turner

D. Williams

Chris Johnson

Jacobs

Portis

TJ

Slaton

Forte

Grant

Sjax -

Gore

Lynch

Kevin Smith

Westbrook

Ronnie Brown

Ward ( if he's a starter somewhere else)

MJD

Cedric Benson ( if he's the starting RB in Cincy in 2009)

seriously, I'd take any one of these guys before I touched Addai..

and then the countless QB's/WR's I'd take before Addai..and perhaps a TE or two ( Witten?)...

Addai is nothing more than a p/t fantasy player , bye week fill-in, injury replacement, but definitely NOT a top 8 draft pick..at least IMO..

You're on a totally different tangent - I'm talking dynasty value.
 
In our league playoff stretch this year I traded a 2009 1st (guy thought it would end up the #1 or 2 pick, but it ended up being the #4) for him since I had serious RB injury issues. I am on the fence with how I feel about the deal now. I looked back at our past 8 drafts and the #4 pick almost NEVER panned out so maybe I did ok here. I personally was thinking Wells, Moreno and Crabtree would be the only Top tier talents to go pro, and I would not have a shot at them so why not trade the pick.

That said, as a now owner I would be in a hold position unless something bowled me over. As a buyer I would easily offer a mid to late 1st and see if the owner would bite.

I've never been an Addai fan because I never thought he was that talented but he is in a very good situation. He's essentially had 22 game stretch of below average football on one of the best offenses in the game so who knows what will happen with his role. He may be given another shot to run with it, they may continue the RBBC, or they may look to bring in someone else. I'd pick him up if you can get him for a bag of rocks but that's unlikely.

That's the thing there. The team is trying to maintain as much continuity as possible on the offensive side of the ball with the elevation of Caldwell, but that doesn't mean he won't take a different approach/view on the running game.

this is my take on him as well.....his success is do to situation .... his talent is average and he could be easily replaced which make him a big question mark..... throw in his injuries and I'm not touching him.
 
I think this year was kind of a wash. The colts started slow with Manning trying to get his game back in form and Harrison never returning to form. Addai was banged up early and never really got going. I think he gets another shot next year and if he doesn't turn up, then the Colts will be looking for another body and he'll probably go back to being used like he was as a rookie.

 
There are two words to describe Joesph Addai's dynasty value ----- LeSean McCoy.

ETA: I swear I didn't see the Evan Silva Rotoworld Mock when I made my post. I just now saw that Evan Silva of The NFL Preview also picked the Colts to select McCoy, lol.

How would you value a young RB in his athletic prime on a high-powered offense that despite that has gotten progressively worse, is oft-injured, failed to make the most of his bell-cow opportunity and is a threat to be embroiled in a RBBC if not outright replaced by a better talent? If you concur with this assessment, then Addai's value in dynasty to one so thinking should be apparent. :thumbup:

 
It seems like everytime I watch Josephina play he's pulling himself out of the game for one ailment or another.

 
Joe Addai has taught me one thing about RBs, and that is that some RBs can hide behind the system, but sooner or later the cat is out of the bag. Addai can be a productive RB in the Colts offense when everything is clicking, but the great RBs don't need a perfect situation to be good. That's the difference between Addai and a good RB.

Thought Rhodes looked better running the ball this year. Rhodes hit the hole, Addai would stutter step and then the hole would be closed.

I give the Addai supporters credit. You'll stick to the bitter end. The guy just isn't that good. I don't have him in my Top 20 dynasty RB's.

 
He is a hold and hope he can stay healthy in 2009....I thought he looked good catching the ball out of the backfield in space.

 
Addai is better suited as a LenDale White type player. Colts need a speed back to the hole, that's not Addai.

 
:kicksrock:

No more excuses for the guy. Christ the guy was horrible. At least Benson ran hard going for 3.5 a pop. Addai : dance, dance, dance (hole opens) dance a little more
