ESPN Insider Note On Kenjon Barner

47 posts in this topic

Apparently he's being viewed as a sleeper pick for fantasy purposes:

Kenjon Barner, Carolina Panthers

Barner posted a superb 10.4 GBYPA in a five-game sample against the toughest rush defenses Oregon faced in the 2011 season. He followed that up with a 2012 campaign in which he ranked third in YPC among BCS conference running backs with 200 or more carries. Barner also racked up 21 rushing touchdowns last season, so he very well could vulture some of the seven rushing scores fullback Mike Tolbert scored for the Panthers last year. There are few late-round running backs who will offer more upside in a fantasy draft.

Moreso if DWill is a June 1 victim and Stew has feet and ankle troubles.

Moreso if DWill is a June 1 victim and Stew has feet and ankle troubles.

Yet he's only missed 9 games in his entire career.

7 of them being last season so it wasn't far fetched of a statement.

I think it is. When comparing D-Will's career to J-Stew's, it's clear that J-Stew has been more durable, especially in the first five years.

I need to find this years version of Doug Martin. Stole him late last year in one of my leagues and he took me to the championship.

j Stews sprained ankle is not ankle problems..kind of the work hazard injury category. He has toe and foot problems which I think he is mostly past.

D will has missed more games

I can't see DWill getting cut this year. We're not in any cap trouble right now, he'll stay around until the 2014 season.

Look at the steelers rookie RB. He may start day 1.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
