FF HoF- Dickerson


Eric Dickerson

Other than playing for the best franchise in the NFL, Dickerson also was amazing at getting yards from scrimmage. He led the league in the category four out of his first six years in the league. In those same first six seasons he topped 2,000 yards four times and totaled less than 12 touchdowns only once ('87 when was traded mid-season and only played 12 games). He led running backs in fantasy points three seasons and was second or third twice. Like many of the top backs, he deteriorated early in his career and couldn't sustain his prowess. His early dominance is worthy of a nod to the HoF.
