Say goodbye to Marshall Faulk



Tearing up Xbox and FF

The Rams just announced that Marshall Faulk will have major reconstructive knee surgery and miss the 2006 season. Coach Scott Linehan said that Faulk wasn’t ready to call it quits but with so many knee injuries in the past couple of years, it’s very likely that we have seen the last of Marshall Faulk.

Most people will mention his career stats and his pro bowls. We here at Sportscolumn are focusing on one thing lately — Fantasy Football. Faulk is arguably the greatest fantasy player in the internet era. For a 3 years stretch, anyone who had Marshall Faulk on their fantasy team was guaranteed at least the playoffs. On the Greatest Show on Turf team, Faulk was a double threat to run and catch the ball for TDs. Winning your fantasy draft lottery in 2000 and 2001 meant you would take Faulk #1 and let the rest of the league sort out the next 19 picks. There was no debate.

Good luck, Marshall.

    faulk — From being a Rams fan beginning in 1999, I’ll be the first to tell you that Faulk is one of the most underrated players of all time. Many just know him because of fantasy, but he should be remembered among the top 10 backs of all time.
