  1. Why is everyone so dang high on Edwards?  Most WRs take a year or two to adjust to the NFL.  He is in CLEVELAND!!!  :D

     

    I don't think this guy is Boldin, Roy Williams or Fitzgerald, but I've been wrong before.  :D

    Maybe it's the fact that Dilfer is throwing to him and the weather's always good on the lake... :D


  2. Would I do Edge for Moss?

     

     

    If you can make that trade, make it. Did you already forget the heartache that Edge causes the FFL owner? If I remember correctly, you benched him a few times at the end of last season. Do the words 'play action from the 1" mean anything to you?

     

    I'm going to do everything I can to not draft Edge again this year. My Peyton Manning voodoo doll simply has too many pins in it to survive another season.

     

    Lewis, Portis and Moss >> Edge, Portis, Lewis in a league where you start 2 RBs. If he'll bite, reel him in.


  3. Legal woes behind him I would go with Lewis myself.  Dillon scares me.  It wasn't that long ago that he was injured every year.  Getting a year older can't help that situation.  Honestly after last year I think that many people will overpay for Dillon, but I feel that his chances of repeating last years stats are slim, but this is just one guys opinion

    Yeah, I can't quite get a handle on Dillon. People either have him ranked too high or too low. I fell this way too - "his chances of repeating last years stats are slim" but I don't have one good reason why. I'd probably go Lewis over Dillon because he's the main man in B'more.


  4. I took LJ in the fourth as a handcuff to Holmes in a recent draft.

     

    But at the sixth pick I could not justify taking DD, KJ, JJ, J Lewis, Portis, or anyone else over the production of Holmes.  I don't think it affected my team in a significantly negative fashion.

    Would you have taken Holmes #3 or #4 or #5? I'd do a freaking jig if he fell to me at #6.


  5. I cannot imagine a Non-Holmes owner taking LJ in the 5th round or earlier.  That would mean they are taking a backup RB in a position they could be filling with a 3rd starting WR (my leagues starts 3) or #2 RB or #1 QB?  That is nuts.  If they do, then a decent starter (at any of those other positions) drops down one slot for you and they can let a backup RB sit on their bench.  I draft 4th and may get Holmes and I figure on using my 6th/7th round pick on LJ.  No way he goes in the top 6 rounds in a ten team league.

    If I take Holmes in Round 1 and I miss LJ...I'll have a trade offer in my lap by the 6th or 7th round. I think all the discussion on this topic is right on so far: If you own Priest and want LJ, take LJ in Round 4. Round 5 is risking it in most leagues.


  6. Branch and Givens are proven but I think you've seen what they will do.  I think Fitz has super-stud potential and Bolden is equal to Branch and Givens.

     

    In the long-term Fitz will be better with Branch and Bolden next and Givens the 4th. 

    I think this year, fantasywise they will all have comprable numbers with Fitz possibly the least (kinda dependent on Warner)

    :D


  7. If you take Holmes at 3-5 and LJ in round 4 would you feel comfortable starting both every week?

     

    No, I wouldn't start them both every week. I'd hope for Priest to put up #s equal to 2 or 3 RBs (as said earlier) and I'd hope to squeeze a few point out of fred taylor, michael bennett, tatum bell, kevan barlow, lee suggs, jj arrington or

    duce staley....I would think one of these would be available in Round 5 as my 2nd RB.


  8. can somebody please tell me why Jamal?...I, for one think he shot his load in 2002...or 2003...whatever year...I forget

    30 carries/game 4 yards a carry = 120 yds/game x 16 = 1920 yds. Throw in 2 exceptional games and he goes for over 2k again. That's why. That offense relies on him. Boller still sucks and the D is still great.


  9. I'm kind of shocked to see that KJ is listed only 4 lbs bigger than Dom. However, KJ's listed at 6' and Dom at 5'9". It seems to me the size difference between the two may actually work in Dom's favor.

     

    Gotta love KJ's schedule though - I would think that's the ultimate tie breaker between the 2.


  10. CMar #1 RB on a running team; Driver #2 WR on a running team

    for

    SJax #1A RB on a passing team; Lloyd #1 WR on a sh*tty team.

     

     

    hmmmm. You've already got Faulk and it wouldn't hurt getting a little younger at your RB2. I also believe both SJax and Lloyd have bigger upside than your guys. Yeah, go ahead and pull the trigger. :D


  11. Chicago Sun Times Article

     

    Now that Benson has missed the first two preseason games and probably will not

    play Saturday at Indianapolis if he signed today, Jones is truly entrenched as the man. He will be the starter Sept. 11 at Washington, and once the season starts it becomes more difficult to climb the depth chart. While he dodged reporters in the spring, Jones has handled matters with skill since because he has experience. He's gone through tough times before.

     

    (Not sure I believe this one...)


  12. Manning, the most overrated fantasy player. I say this because there is no way in hell that he comes close to last years numbers. Not including last year, he's averaged under 28 TD's per year, only going over 30 once when he threw 33 in 2000. He'll throw 30-35 TD's, hardly worth a first round draft pick.

     

     

    Last year there was a rule change which permitted Manning to find open receivers all over the field. IMO, that's why his numbers last year dwarf the rest of his career. Unless there was another rule change this offseason, he's a lock for 40-45 TDs again.

     

    That said, I'm glad I don't have to defend the rest of Sarge's draft. It's painfully obvious that Manning in Round 1 'completly screws up your draft'.
