  1. I never said he was last on the list, just added a bunch of names for discussion.
  2. WRs who played since 2000 (i.e., in 2001 or later): Rice Brown Carter Owens Harrison Moss Bruce Holt Andre Johnson Calvin Johnson Fitzgerald Jimmy Smith I think Steve Smith is behind all of them. Don't forget Reggie Wayne. I'd easily put him ahead of S. Smith as well. Yeah, I left off Wayne, Ward, Boldin, Marshall, and whoever else because I think those guys are more debatable. I suppose maybe I should have lumped Jimmy Smith in with that group and left him off my list, since he is also perhaps debatable. But IMO none of the others on my list are debatable. Hines Ward, Chad Johnson, Keenan Mccardell, Keyshawn Johnson, Derrick Mason, Joe Horn
  3. I think Miller looked good last night, they just need to give him the ball a little more. Hopefully the Dolphins realize this soon and his touches go up. If he gets a few more touches I think he is a viable #2 RB.
  4. Man that would be nice. It took 4 months to go from 4% to 3.5% and 9 months to go from 3.5% to 3% so it should be somewhere in be tween that if things keep going the way they are.2.875 today
  5. I don't get the hype for Kolb. Sure, he's better than what they had, but DRC and a 2nd?
  6. SSOG, you updating your ranking anytime soon? Specifically looking at WR and some of the changes/trends that have occurred in the last month or two.
  7. Damnable deep WR squad kept this guy off my team. Shoulda listened to myself.Oh well. Yep, just traded for him a few weeks ago and I'm loving it. The guy is putting WR1 numbers every week.
  8. Is Steve Johnson moving up? He has been consistent, possibly breaking out in his 3rd year?
  9. James Davis going to start getting some touches this week?
  10. I was one of the Wayne supporters, and still am. Maybe his trade value is down a little, but I would still take him as the 4th WR. He and Manning are a better bet in my book than anyone in else in tier 2. I was not a supporter of putting V. Jackson at #4, and am still not.
  11. Are Moss and Owens are the others you are grouping with Cal Johnson?
  12. I think the top 3 are Brown, Lynch, and Forte in that order. After that maybe Jacobs (but he is taking a beating and will wear down soon IMO), then Slaton and Mcfadden.
  13. Hilliard and Sheets are getting some publicity, what are your thoughts on both of them?
  14. Just because you take some one's job doesn't mean you get his "production". Both are small but Westbrook has more bulk and a better balance which makes him a deceptively strong inside runner. McCoy is a weak runner and doesn't have the frame to add much bulk. As others stated or insinuated McCoy makes moves for the sake of making moves instead of just heading downfield.Also Westbrook in his prime was the only show in town (except for the TO years), so the offense ran through him. With Jackson and Maclin on the outside, the Eagles don't need to force fee McCoy the ball in the passing game like they did Westbrook.I agree mostly. So let's venture some guesses of what we can count on. Maybe 75% of Westbrook's peak production? If that happens McCoy still ranks as a RB1. Is 75% a safe guess?
  15. It would take a real piece of work to call Boldin "brittle." He's one of the toughest players in the game. That said, his physical style leads to injuries. He's dropped in my eyes because I don't think he's quite as explosive in the open field (tough to tell with the constant aches and pains) as he used to be, and because I can't trust him to play more than 12-14 games in any given year. Among WRs, he probably has the closest playing style to a running back, which conceivably could make his decline swifter.Hines Ward plays a similar style and he has held up pretty well.
  16. Sounds like both (F&L and SSOG) of you have moved Wayne to #5 WR and the end of the first round in a startup dynasty. Which RB's would you take over him? ADP, MJD, CJ are givens. What about Jackson? Gore? Rice? D Williams? Turner? Stewart? Forte? Thanks
  17. I know it's not my thread, but I would take Wayne over Jackson without a second thought. He elite, top 5 every year. Jackson might get there, but to me Wayne is too good and in too good of a situation to even compare the two right now. If he relied on his speed alone, then he would worry me more, but his routes are timing and knowledge based, and the combination of him and Manning for another 5 years is too good to give up for only a potential top 5 guy.
  18. Was wondering when we might see an update of the RB rankings? I am specifically interested in where you would move the rookie RB's now that we have seen a few games. Also, I'm assuming W. McGahee has moved up, how far up would you move him? Thanks.
  19. Larry Johnson, how many more years can we expect from him?
  20. Given the play of D. Williams this season, I think Stewart might be able to be had for a high to mid first round pick in your next draft. He probably went in the top 5 of your draft this year. Where would he go in next year's draft? Probably top 5 again, despite Williams, right? I guess that's the way I look at it. I wouldn't give a top 2, but maybe somewhere between 3 and 5 would be about right?Hard to say for sure though, depends on who comes out next year, who doesn't come out next year and what you have to offer and your league rules and set up.
