'Nother good one, although I think over the long haul Jeff Fuller will prove to be the more valuable.
I guess that will depend on West's health.
During the relatively short time he's been a Stampeder, he's been injured a lot.
He's certainly got talent, so if he can ever stay healthy for an extended period...
My concern is the West injuries continue to plague him. He really needs to be in top shape otherwise there is always someone waiting in the wings to take that job. West has great talent but needs to be able to fall down with out being carried off the field. I agree on Fuller this guy is another hard nosed Nik Lewis like player that needs to be in this line up.
