Knowshon Kno-More 


Funny huh.  Didn't even realize he bolted until I was checking out the NFL.Com Fantasy site.  Another reason we will win the west.  He took his 1000 yards to Miami and Monte Ball is supposed to be the man.  We upgraded I hope.  If MJD is better than Jennings, or at least as good than we did?

IMPROVED

Tight Ends improved if Awesomeberry can stay healthy.  I am tired of reading and hearing concerns about his and Rivera's blocking.   Top 4 fantasy TE playing on playoff teams.  can they block?

Knowshon sucks.  He was just lucky  to play in that Peyton Manning led offense that averaged 340 yards passing per game which was more than the total yards (passing and running) that half the teams in the NFL averaged and that gave the RBs huge lanes to run through.    Any RB will look good in that offense.   Ball and Hillman will do well enough.

You wouldn't look at FF stats to say who's a good blocker because you don't get points from blocking but yes, all but Vernon Davis are very good blocking TE's. It really depends on how the team uses their TE's. Some teams use TE's in pass blocking yet Gradkowski is never asked to do that. Some TE's are almost exclusively run blockers. Some like Jimmy Graham are almost exclusively a pass catcher and is a fair blocker (same with Antonio Gates) but they become more effective run blockers because of their threats a receiving. And some TE's are just plain greedy. They sometimes have to sell the play action too and I've seen many times where a TE will just tap the rusher and go out on the route which disrupts the timing of the offense.
The Raiders say they are going to be a "run first" offense so it will be very important that the TE can block at least almost as well as he can catch passes. I'm also a fan of Ausberry but he is a converted WR . His first year he was playing behind Zach Miller, the next year behind Brandon Meyers, and last season he was injured so he's had a very very late start in learning game time experience which is where I think a lot of that blocking stuff is learned.

Who cares who is the starting running back?  If MJD said that then I guess he does.  This isn't baseball where the starter is gone once he is taken out.  MJD and DMC could alternate every play, and if the both get 1,000 yards rushing then I guess we will be truly effective. Hah we may be undefeated.

And last if Jano really said he is the best ever...LOL.

I grew up in Michigan and the Lions had a guy named Jason Hanson.  His stats beat Jano's in almost every category.

Plus he could play MLB @ 190 when needed.
