What the hell is wrong with Domanick Davis?????

I had him in my fantasy lineup yesterday but he has to leave the game AGAIN with an injury...anyone knows what is happening...???

Last year I had David Carr on my fantasy, and he was an average backup, Domanikc Davis had a fantastic year (at least, in fantasy terms...). This year, David is my starter, making like 30 fantasy points per week, but Domanick didn't do anything...AAAAAAAAAAARGHHHH....!!!!

I don't mess with fantasy football myself, but I've got a few pieces of advice (even though I'm a Texan fan):

1) I wouldn't have chosen DD for a whole season, because he's small and a little injury prone. He can be really good at times, though. Maybe your choices were somewhat limited. I don't know.

2) Our offensive line has made great strides, but it was definitely not ready to really protect Carr last year. We're still a little concerned about it this year, as a matter of fact, but it's getting better all the time. Of course, then there's the Andre Johson factor.

So, basically, you chose two great players, but they were still not real great picks. Try Carr again in a few years.

Personally, I am a little worried about our RB situation.

Yeah, me too. I'm happy with what Wells has been doing, but I'm worried that he won't be able to keep it up, for whatever reason, and DD seems to have just lost it. Is it just me, or does anyone else think Wells was EXTREMELY slow to the hole yesterday? It seemed like slow motion, but he still got decent yardage.
I say "hole" kind of tongue and cheek because I still don't really get the new blocking scheme. I'm not even seeing holes or a hole at all. I think I'm seeing the O-line just trying to stand up the man in front of them and let the RB FIND a hole, if there is one at all. I know it works for Denver, so that's why I don't complain. I'm no expert on blocking schemes, anyway. I just understand the basic "push your guy back and away from the hole that will be run through" approach. That and pulling guards to run sweeps.

Me too. Davis is averaging 2.9 yards per carry (I think that was Wells' average during the inaugural year). Wells is doing a good job but I dont think he is anything more than a quality backup. And what happened to my boy Hollings??? It is looking like we will use a high pick on RB and there are a couple of good ones coming out...

"Carlos Beltran is good."



That's the understatement of the decade.

We need a bigger set RB. Davis is too small. Not too small but not the size you'd like your every down back to be.

This is so funny. I always been listening about the "little" Domanikc Davis, but Priest Holmes is 5-9, 213 and Domanick is 5-9, 221... (NFL.com)...anyway, I think too that Davis maybe was a nice surprise the last season but...he's not for real anymore...

Say what you want about DD's performance or how the Texans use him, but this DD is too small thing needs to be put out to pasture. Try looking at the top 20 backs for rushing yards--three of them are over 225 lbs--the majority are smaller than DD.
