FF's Biggest Winners on Day One (1 Viewer)

H.K.

What players do you think benefited from who their team drafted or passed on yesterday?

I think Dominick Davis was a huge beneficiary by the Texans passing on Bush and adding a few O-lineman.

What say you?

:popcorn:

 
Willie Parker  :thumbup:
Duce down??50/50 would be best case scenario for Willie..

Guessing, till Duce get's hurt 30% is more likely.

:2cents:
I understand that you don't want to be on the bandwagon until Parker has two consecutive 1,000 yards seasons, but that's pushing it.Duce, 32 years of age, was down last year playing only 5 games to injury. He'll get carries, but nowhere near 50 percent of them.

 
Thinking about QB's...

Brees gets a real weapon in the pass game to utilize in Bush. I could see him catching 50/500 easily as a rookie. Not to mention a great backfield tandem in Duece/Bush to keep safeties honest.

Alex Smith gets an upgrade at TE and WR in the third. Gotta help the kid a little.

Carr has to like the two O-Lineman added (especially Winston IMO)

 
Winners

Dom Davis / Morency (two new linemen)

Andre Johnson (Bush may have hurt his numbers too!)

FWP

Cedric Houston (a vote of confidence?)

Westbrook (offensive line help)

Brady (Pats go offense, offense, offense)

Brees (new playmaker)

Big Ben (see Brees)

Mason/Clayton (expect McNair to find his way to Baltimore)

Losers

Plummer (Denver eyes a franchise QB)

Chris Brown / Henry

Deuce

Foster

Boller (see above)

Rhodes (you knew the Colts would draft a RB)

 
Easily, Dom Davis.

Winners:

Tatum Bell

Ron Dayne

Brian Westbrook

Curtis Martin
Good call on CurMar - his OL improved big time, but I'd also say Cedrick Houston got a nod of approval.Ben Roethlisberger - trading up for a WR, while DeAngelo was on the board, shows that Cowher will be giving more of the offense in Ben's capable hands.

Tom Brady - #1 QB adds 2 playmakers

Good thread...I actually have lowered my risk levels for all Cardinals as well. Leinart will be able to provide quality play once Warner goes down(notice not if)

 
Losers

Plummer (Denver eyes a franchise QB)

Chris Brown / Henry

Deuce

Foster

Boller (see above)

Rhodes (you knew the Colts would draft a RB)
Dillon could be added here
 
Tom Brady got three more offensive weapons - :thumbup:

Deuce McAllister is coming off an injury and now has Reggie Bush - :thumbdown:

I think those were the big ones from yesterdays draft on the offensive side.

 
Losers

Plummer (Denver eyes a franchise QB)

Chris Brown / Henry

Deuce

Foster

Boller (see above)

Rhodes (you knew the Colts would draft a RB)
Dillon could be added here
I actually wrote Dillon and then removed him. This is based on my own expectations for Dillon (age, injury history, etc), which I see as just one year as the primary ball carrier. I expect Dillon's role for '06 unchanged. Maroney's use will impact Faulk and Pass.Of course, this is based on the assumption that Dillon is 100% healthy. If not, the Pat's have a backup more suited to the every down role.

Yeah, Deuce, Foster and Brown seem to the biggest losers from a dynasty perspective. They all had issues but were all young and the chance to be the long term answer for their respective teams was certainly there.

:yes:
 
Willie Parker :thumbup:
Duce down??50/50 would be best case scenario for Willie..
Best case scenario? I can't imagine a case where even in worst case Staley would approach half the carries. He should get 6-10 touches per game. And, by week 4, ask "Duce Down?" again. the answer will be yes.

 
Losers

Plummer (Denver eyes a franchise QB)
I see Plummer as a winner this weekend, at least in the short term. Denver added Walker and a decent TE prospect, which gives him some upgraded targets. Cutler will need time to develop, too. I don't think Vanderbilt is the best grooming ground for an NFL QB, so Cutler has a few years to learn the game behind a 32 year old vet. In three years he'll be ready, right when Plummer is about done.

Totaqlly agree. And if he is cut in two years he can still get a starter job on a sucky team somewhere for a few million on the basis of his resurgence with the Broncos (See Brunell, Mark)
 
Tom Brady---winner

Any Bill= loser

Edge= loser (no real oline help)
They drafted Deuce Lutui who was the top rated OG on many boards, and easily projects as a starter for the Cardinals.

combined with Elton Brown from last year who was the #1 G in some people's eyes (fell to the 4th) and Edge has to HUGE Gs there in Arizona... Brown is around 340 and Lutui is the same I believe.
