Why not? Someone has to catch passes...You mean to tell me that Jerircho Cotchery is undraftable???

I think (I hope) the point was unwilling to draft them at about where you would expect them to go not later than (or at all if they would go late)

 

Given that my list would include:

 

QB McNabb

RB S Jackson, Westbrook, Bush, Lynch, LJ

WR Marshall (unless that whole mess gets settled), Roy Wms, Edwards, DS Jackson

 

The other positions there's not much I'd consider totally untouchable within reason (like I'll pass on the CLE kicker, DET defense etc)

There just aren't many people on a don't draft list. If LJ falls to me at the right place, then absolutely I'll take him.

 

BTW, Denver WR's will most likely be a great late round pick up and could surprise as it looks like they will go with 3 WR sets all year.

Kirk Morrison, Tommy Kelly, Shane Lechler (ATAP has punters).

Kelley for a league with required DT instead of DL, sure knock yourself out.

 

I think Kirk Morrison, despite being demoted during training camp, was on par to have another incredible season at MLB. However with his recently dislocated elbow, the Raiders brought in Napoleon Harris yesterday... revealing it might be a bit more serious than originally thought.

 

And Lechlar is a stud in any Punter league.

I don't really have good reasons for avoiding these guys but I can't stand ANY of the Redskins players outside of Cooley. Campbell, Portis and S. Moss will never be on my teams no matter what. I just hate their offense! Even their Team D is good but definately not sexy and won't be top 10 in fantasy IMO.

:wacko: That's pretty much their whole offense. There are not too many team where more than 4 offense players are targets. Sorry, just a funny post, no offense intended.

:wacko: I could put together a pretty solid squad from your list of undraftables...

 

Palmer

Gore / LT / Westbrook

Marshall / Royal / Cotchery / Hester / Avery

 

Granted, that might be a high risk, high reward team, but I think I'd have a hard time coming up with a competitive team if I had THAT many guys on my "don't touch" list. It's all about value, and I don't really think there is anybody on your list that I wouldn't take, in the right format, circumstance, situation, etc. I'm personally staying away from the four-headed monsters that are the NE and DEN running backs. That doesn't mean I won't draft Moreno, Buckhalter, Hillis, Faulk, etc.... if they fall to me in the right spot.

 

I've done several drafts, both mock and real, this year, and I have noticed some trends... Here are some guys who are generally taken long before I would want to grab them:

 

- Brady (I'd rather have the less-risky Brees if I'm going to spend a high pick on a QB)

- Favre (I'll take a flier on him as a late pick, or as a backup to a solid starter, but that's about it)

- Steven Jackson (I have him in a league where I grabbed him in the 2nd round, and even then, I'm thinking I maybe should have passed)

- McFadden (just not sold that he's going to be anything more than a very good complimentary back, whether it be to Bush, Fargas, or both)

- Moreno (What a mess... I drafted him #1 overall in a dynasty rookie draft in April. Wouldn't touch him as anything more than a RB3 in a redraft, and he's not lasting nearly that long)

- P. Thomas (This may be more due to my draft position than anything else. I've been slotted towards the bottom of most redrafts, and he has been going late 2nd, early 3rd in most that I've been a part of... doesn't make it back to me at the point where I would take him).

- Wells (Like Moreno, due to early injuries, I'm just not sold he's going to get the bulk of the work, until maybe mid-season... I'll gladly spend my 4th-6th rounders elsewhere, and pick up Hightower in the 10th or later).

- Addai (burned once too many times by this guy... I view him as nothing more than a RB3, and he's still being drafted as a RB2. I'll pass and take Brown, with more upside, as my third RB.)

- J. Stewart (I just think Williams, as long as he's healthy, is the man.)

- Coles (not sure Henry won't be the 2nd most productive WR in Cinci this year)

- Roy Williams (Dude is slow as molasses... strength is catching jump balls, which is not really a true characteristic of a go-to guy. I'm not convinced he'll ever be a productive WR1 again, and wouldn't want him as anything more than my 3rd WR).

- D. Jackson (Love the guy, and think he's going to be a stud someday... I'm just not convinced he should be going in the 4th round, when there are so many weapons in Philly).

 

There isn't a single guy listed above that I wouldn't draft... In fact, I have a few of them. Generally, though, I just see them going earlier than I would be comfortable drafting them.
