QBs

I can't beleive anyone would have Culpepper over Manning with Moss gone. I would have Brady, Delhomme, Palmer & Carr all before Hasselbeck & Vick.

 

RBs

Not exactly how I have them, but won't argue it.

 

WRs

Assuming Owens & Walker play I have them like this.

1-Moss

2-Owens

3-Harrison

4-Holt

5-C.Johnson

6-Horn

7-Walker

8-Wayne

9-A.Johnson

10-I don't have a clear cut guy here right now but none of them are Ward or Porter.

While I'm sure everyone doesn't have them this way, I'm sure most are closer to this than ESPN.

 

TEs

Like the RBs I have them a little different but won't argue 1-8. In no certain order I have Johnson, Wiggins, Graham, Franks & even Pollard before the last 2.

 

& this is ESPN on crack :D

I think Grunge "acccidently" transposed Culpepper for Manning at the #1 qb spot... :D

Nope. That's what the magazine says.

 

Their projections:

 

Culpepper 334/496 4,025yds 30TD 12INT 380yds 5TD = 349 fantasy pts

 

Manning 334/489 4,325yds 42TD 11INT 25yds 0TD = 344 fantasy pts

 

(assuming i did the math right)

 

Guess they are rating rushing yards and TDs a bit higher for their rankings.

 

Also, Golic and Hoge list Daunte as league MVP while Schlereth, Salisbury, and Paolantonio give that nod to Manning.

 

Edit: Their scoring system is 4pts pass TD, 6pts rush/rec TD, 2pts 2pt conversion, 1pt 25 yds passing, 1 pt 10 yds rush/rec. So that explains it.

I think the yardage is too high for CPep, and too low for Manning, but the rest of those projections look about right, maybe 5 rushing TD's are a bit high for CPep too, but.... not outragously so.

I agree with you guys concerning Manning. How could Culpepper be ahead of him? Do you all think Porter will be that good as well? I have my doubts.

I don't know if Porter will be better then Burleson. Maybe we should open a topic just for that? :D

I thumbed thru this thing off the rack last week. Can't say much for the projections, can't say much for mags at all for that matter. But one thing is for sure, the fantasy mag business looks to have taken a giant leap. I was quite impressed with the layout as compared to the other mags in the past. Regardless they will never be able to change the fact that the info is already outdated by the time it hits the shelf. Still, I'll buy them if for nothing more than bathroom reading material.

Not bad....but Reggie Wayne is a top 10 WR. Don't be suprised if he puts up better #s than Harrison this year. :D

The consensus cheat sheet is just as good, maybe better. For nuthin'.
