  1. I think Blackmon in the right situation will be one of the best of the class (can you imagine him landing in Atlanta? I read that the other day and think he would benefit a lot from a landing spot like that). Green is the #1 guy to me - STL would be nice - but Julio Jones is going to struggle out of the gate in my opinion. Over time he may catch up, but I see a much longer time line for him to get productive as a WR3 or WR4 in fantasy.It is a rare WR that comes right out of the gates and is a stud. Typically they take the Dwayne Bowe route and despite their talent, kind of suck it up their fir
  2. I'm not trying to win anything. I've said and still believe that you can find great players in the middle and end of the first round of a rookie draft just as easily as you can in the top 3.In 2009, top 3 were Crabtree, Moreno, and Wells. Later in the round were McCoy, Harvin, Maclin, Britt, Nicks, Stafford, and Sanchez. All have performed as well as if not better than the top 3. In 2008, McFadden and Stewart were mostly the top two followed by Forte and Mendenhall. After that, you find Ray Rice and Chris Johnson (both outperformed all four of the top four). Jamaal Charles and Felix Jon
  3. Yep. I could have gotten Mike Williams (TB) in probably 8 or 9 of my 13 dynasty leagues. Instead I kept taking McCluster with that 1.11-2.2 picks. Would kill to go back and get Williams now. I just played it safe because of the off field stuff. Sometimes you have to take those risks.How in the world can anyone play in 13 dynasty leagues, lol...that's just ridiculous! That must be the record around here.

  5. I would take ADP over everyone one that list. Charles at #1? I think that's ridiculous myself. Stewart at #4? That's probably even more ridiculous. I love Foster as #2, and that's where I personally would rate him, or perhaps at 3. My top 7 for dynasty PPR would go:1) ADP2) Lesean Mccoy3) Foster4) CJ5) Ray Rice6) MJD7) CharlesPlease don't start with me and Rice, let's just say that I'm a big believer in his talent. I stood away from a lot of the arguments on this board regarding Rice for a reason. My ranking is based on:50%: my personal opinion5%: my talent's "eye"15%" my "gut feeling"
  6. I think the 2nd portion of your post says it all to me "Not sure all that much can be had for him in dynasty." That makes him a BUY in dynasty as opposed to a sell. If people are not believing the hype, not believing the story that they would disregard a breakout player who scored in the top 5 as far as RBs go, then it seems he is being undervalue tremendously.Of course there are question marks in Hardesty, but there are also tons of positives. I may attempt to make a move for him after my draft next year (i don't play in dynasty, but a keeper where we keep 6 at no cost and i don't have Pey
  7. He finished 7th at age 22. Do you see him regressing?Not sure I'd put him top 5 myself, but it's not outlandish at all. - 1st rounder- prototypical size- extremely impressive mobility and instincts- excellent young talent around him- only 22- 60% completion, 7+ ypa- running statsWhat's not to like?It's not logically sound in my opinion to measure production based on total points. I think it is much better to do a points per game played, since Freeman only finished so high (in my league he finished 10th) because he played every single game. Of course you would say that durability is a value

  9. Not really true from my experience. One league I have been in since 2003 (with EBF & Team Legacy) has 17 of 24 original owners (the league has two 12 teams conferences). Another league, Fantasy Legends II (with JohnnyU) started in 2004 has 6 of 12 original owners. In both leagues, there has been no problem finding replacements for owners with terrible teams who leave - there seems to be always someone out there who likes the challenge of rebuilding (although sometimes it may require an added incentive like an extra draft pick or reduced dues for the first year).I myself, will take over a
  10. For years I have seen people harp on the concept that talent counts more than situation in Dynasty leagues and while it is true in theory, it doesn't always work out that way in practice. Fate, circumstances, luck (whatever) can constantly intervene and the truth is that some players with talent never find themselves in the ideal situation to utilize it. It may be that from this point forward the situation won't get any better for Fitzgerald. Despite what some were predicting before the season started, it turns out the QB situation did negatively impact his fantasy numbers. And while the Cards
  11. "Fitzgerald will be 28 by the start of next year," well, he'll also be 28 long after the FINISH of next season. Right now he is 27.5 years old, by the end of next season he will be 28.5 years old. As a comparison, Andre Johnson is more than 2 years older than Fitzgerald, Reggie Wayne is currently 5 years older than Fitzgerald, and I could go on and on. I disagree that a WR sees his peak by age 30, the peak of a WR can stretch all the way to 32 or older. Fitz has a good 5 years left of peak form, at least, of course barring injuries. He is well known for his work ethic and workout routines.In d

  14. I am definitely a believer, but most of this board doesn't seem too high on the guy. His biggest drawback is the coaching on the bucs in my opinion. They claim he is bar in short yardage and never really give the guy a chance. Even yesterday, blount had 163 yards, but no tds. Countless times they gwen the ball in goalline situations and refuse to give blount the work. They deem passing the better option. Against a garbage team like the seahawks, it'll work, but as we have seen over the lqst month, against hood teams, not so much. Even his work load is anemic. The guy has 163 yards, you're up b
