I dont think Williams was a bad pick, but for his ADP...people were really overvaluing him. No way should he have been touched in the first 50 picks. Hes still a 50% touch guy in an explosive offense so he has value but he was never gonna be the RB1 some thought hed be.
Williams was far from a bad pick back before McCoy came to KC. Dude would have clearly gotten the lions share without him there. Granted, it does look like McCoy seems to be in the doghouse right about now after all the fumbles. So we'll see how that goes.
If he was taken in the top 50, I think he was a bad pick.
With McCoy sure, without him, he would have gotten all the carries he's gotten this season, plus 98% of the ones McCoy has gotten. It's clear Darrel and Thompson are non factors currently. Certainly far from a bad pick in the top 50 if it wasn't for McCoy imo. That's the first 4-5 rounds.
they'll use darrel a fair amount if either damien or mccoy goes down, which is what they have already done this season.
there's no foreseeable situation in which damien williams will get around 80% of carries in this offense, mccoy or no mccoy. so no, damien will not get 98% of mccoy's carries if mccoy misses a game. damien will not get a "dalvin cook workload" or whatever you said. you have a real bad read on this offense but I think it's just so you feel like less of a bad NFL football prognosticator.
You can simply knock it off with the petty insults dude. I'm getting tired of it.
Before McCoy came onto the scene, Reid mentioned he was going to run a committee similar to the one he used in Philly (we've heard this before, right). In that committee, there was one main back who got the majority of carries, with other backs serving as supporting roles. Damien is no star, but Darrel Williams is straight up backup material, and Thompson is still getting his feet wet. This is not the case for McCoy, and Reid's plans obviously changed. Williams outpaced McCoy in carries these past two weeks 19 to 12, and was on the field this past week for 72% of offensive snaps compared to McCoy's 10%. But at the same time, McCoy received the majority in week 6, 50% to 38%. There is clearly not a main back in this backfield like there would have been without McCoy. Williams was also signed to an extension last year, so they definitely intended on using him. Keep in mind that he was clearly the main back last year at the end when McCoy wasn't there. Overall, there is very much evidence that he could have gotten a large workload would McCoy have not joined the team just as much as there is evidence that it would have been more balanced. So we can agree to disagree, but you simply can't come out here and say that there is no way that it would have happened. To be honest, I'm at fault for acting like it definitely would have happened above as well. None of us truly know, or will ever know. But I don't need you questioning or critiquing my overall football knowledge, thank you.
a) Oh no!
b) You're right - you don't need me questioning or critiquing your overall football knowledge, because you've been spewing bad take after bad take since August.
Find me one other person in the world who thinks Damien Williams would have gotten a "Dalvin Cook workload" without McCoy on the roster. I'll wait.
You know what's funny is, you keep talking about how Darrel and Darwin are "backup material" like Damien is just soooo much better than they are. Is that why Damien has been a backup his entire career?
I don't care what you say anymore man. I'm perfectly fine with having a debate with someone who can carry an adult, mature conversation, but when someone resorts to petty insults that all goes out the window. Your opinion means nothing to me when you can't say it without needlessly trashing me. And you've gotten just as much wrong as I have, so don't act like you're the king of fantasy football. That RB you said was going to cut into Montgomery's carries? Got cut this week. What are Dante Pettis's numbers again? Didn't someone try to tell you he wasn't the WR1 anymore? Consider yourself ceremoniously blocked, because I'm done arguing with you. Waste of my time, waste of yours, waste of everyone else's. Moving on.
lol you are out of your mind. completely.
you have been nonstop terrible take after terrible take.
i said montgomery had a high likelihood of being a bust because mike davis was going to rob touches from him.
and hey guess what, thats exactly what happened. montgomery was a 4th rounder.
and you said dante pettis WAS GOING TO BE CUT lol
of all the players i hyped up this summer you will find me mentioning pettis exactly zero times
you are one sad mofo man.....
I said he COULD get cut. At least get it right if you're going to continue to take needless shots at me. Also, Montgomery is picking up pace. He's the only rosterable player on that offense at this point in standard leagues. You're calling me sad? You're bullying a random guy on the internet, for what, fun? To make you feel better about yourself? Don't care, I'm done with it.
what's this, the third time you're done arguing in the last 24 hours?
you say ignorant sht and you will get called for it. you know, sht like, damien williams is an RB1 i will shout it from the rooftops, damien williams would have a dalvin cook workload if mccoy wasnt on the roster, dante pettis is going to get cut, and about a zillion other things in the last few months.
since my takes are just as bad as yours, why dont you go back and find some of the things ive said that were wrong and quote them here... when i get about 4 hours of free time i'll do the same for your garbage ass takes... im sure this will work out just great for you
You act as if you've never gotten anything wrong and I'm sick of it. I make bold takes for a reason and don't care if they're wrong. You seem to not be able to grasp that. Leave me alone, or you'll be the first member here I ever block, and then you won't be able to get your glorious satisfaction of trashing me. Choice is up to you.
look dude, you are more caught up in your feelings than most women i know.
you take shots and take shots then you turn into a little btch when you get your BS debunked.
why dont you just do as i suggested, go back and quote me on all the takes i got wrong, or is this just more BS that you said that you cant back up?
yep same old guru playbook. take a bunch of shots, then whine about how you're being attacked
you're a joke, bozo
I know internet trolls when I see it. You can't even admit that you don't act like a know it all lol. I should have known better with the crap you used to pull, when someone PMed me saying you were nothing but an instigator with a bad mood. Bye.
