  1. Batum is likewise the face of the Blazers future, go look at new GM Neil Olshey's comments on Batum when he was an RFA and Olshey had just taken over the team. Batum is a superior in every facet of the game except rebounding.
  2. I have no idea what that means and Batum is a better keeper and a better player than George.
  3. I do understand that the opportunity is there and there is potentially a RB here that could recieve substantial carries, but you all talk about him like he is a 1st round pick or something. People are comparing him to David Wilson who some considered the best RB on the board during the draft. This guy was an undrafted RB who barely got any carries in college and was cut previously. I get that the situation might be right, but really is there that much potential?
  4. Okay now. Yeah I'm starting him in 2 of my 3 leagues. Hell if Lynch can go for 100 against San Fran, why can't Powell get somewhere around 100 yards from scrimmage against Minnesota? If Kolb is hurt I'd imagine they would have to rely on running the ball a bit more. I'll be sure to post an update on all the fantasy moves I make the rest of the week so that you (and everyone else) can critique them to death. Because Lynch is a Top 5 running back on a team with a great O-Line and Minnesota actually has a better run defense than SF statistically speaking...
  5. Then you make it difficult to want to engage in a dialogue. I'm confused to what you are debating? This? or this? Uhm, no. It was definitely Powell's fault and you can see it in the video. It was an audibled draw play for the back and Powell (#33) didn't know the play, didn't hear the play, didn't like Kolb, didn't sleep at a Holliday Inn or whatever, but he went to pass block and left Kolb out to dry. You can see this on the video linked. Start at about 30 seconds in. See how Kolb goes to hand the ball off and nobody is there. See how the center fires out and goes upfield to blo
  6. This. Coaches probably dont trust him much yet, and while he did look good against the worst D in the league, I cant say I'd be ecstastic to start him against Minny and SF in the coming weeks.
  7. Also, I am guessing that after tomorrow, people will come here wondering why Alphonso Smith got more touches than this guy.
  8. Thats just not realistic at all. How so? He averaged 7 yards a carry the game prior. LOL. This guy couldnt get through a college season, let alone even get through his pro-day without getting hurt...
  9. Projection for William Powell this week: 8 carries, 21 yards, 0TDs, 2 catches, 14 yards, 0TDs
  10. Clearly much quicker than Williams? Where did you get that idea? William Powell Pro Day: 40 Yrd Dash: 4.63 20 Yrd Dash: 2.64 10 Yrd Dash: 1.60 Ryan Williams Pro Day: 40 Yrd Dash: 4.49 20 Yrd Dash: 2.50 10 Yrd Dash: 1.59 I would compare their cone drill and shuttle stats, but that would be impossible since William Powell pulled his hamstring running the 40 at his pro day. Responding to the bolded part. Is it entirely possible this guy is just an injury disaster. I mean he hurts hammy running on pro day, he gets a concussion on like his 6th NFL touch. Maybe the guy is just made

  12. I think we can all agree that there is a much better chance that Aliens exist than William Powell ever being fantasy relevant.
  13. If William Powell finishes the season in the Top 75 RBs on the year I will give everyone in this thread $1 via PayPal.
  14. Dear god let this thread die, he got 1 carry, dont claim he "averaged 7 ypc" an average implies that there is a sample size larger than 1 to create an average from. Also, after Williams got hurt, Alphonso Smith and Ray Sherman were on the field. This guy is not going to start this season or ever for that matter. Like I said you are better off picking up: Toby Gerhart, Robert Turbin, Mike Goodson, Ronnie Hillman, hell I'd probably even pick up Bryce Brown over him. He is a handcuff AT THE BEST, and probably the worst one in the league considering the complete incompetence of his o-line.
  15. Who cares how many extra snaps Powell played on passing downs. He didn't even catch many balls. For all the extra snaps he played over Williams he ended up catching only 1 more pass. So he was basically a blocking dummy out there. If you want to hang your hat on that go ahead. I've got absolutely no problem with people picking him up and hoping. I agree with you jnormy you have to be proactive. But the positive spin some of you guys are trying to put on the last game is so ridiculous. all i was doing was disproving your comment that ryan williams is a workhorse back similar to lynch. i was
  16. the difference is seattle is no time share lynch gets ALL the carries. and if you wanna compare beast mode to ryan williams go right ahead buddy Turbin had 3x the carries as Powell last week in the so-called "timeshare" in Arizona...
  17. Every day I come to the forums and notice this thread still exists. If you want to take a flier on a backup running back, go pick up Robert Turbin. At least Seattle has some semblance of an O-Line and Marshawn has missed quite a bit of time in the past.
  18. This thread is still going on? William Powell must have a lot of relatives who are Rotoworld members...
  19. Here is the point everyone is missing and trying ignore, especially you with your Rose Colored Powell glasses on. Arizona's offensive line sucks. Arizona's offensive line is putrid. Arizona's offensive line is arguably the worst collection of losers in the NFL trying to run block. You can try to spin it any which way you want but Arizona abandoned the run today because there offensive line was getting overwhelmed on every run attempt. If a runner is behind a putrid offensive line his chances of succeeding are extremely low. So lets recap: Back up RB, with regular 3rd down back out got 2

  21. why is it necessary to make excuses. the guy was viewed as a lotto ticket in case williams go hurt. he didn't. end of story. why does it matter that powell diid nothing today? he wasn't suppose to without williams going down. honestly making excuses just looks silly and makes it his supporters look like they are grasping at straws You guys clearly missed the reason I was interested in him, then. Yes, a Ryan Williams injury will be the fastest way to propel William Powell into the driver seat, but I consider Powell a speculative hold in case Ryan Williams cedes touches to William Powel
