With the major part of Free agency behind us...What are your early SOS observations? Bump who up and bump who down

Could help alot with drafts right around the corner for some of us :popcorn:

 
WR

:thumbup: Andre Johnson - Bush + Moulds

:thumbdown: Joey Galloway - Healthy Clayton + Cadillac in the receiving game + age

RB

:thumbup: Jamal Lewis - with healthy blockers, 1800+ easy

:thumbdown: Ronnie Brown - with Ricky, he doesn't start, without Ricky he breaks by midseason

TE

:thumbup: Kellen Winslow - Frye will be leaning on his TE crutch

:thumbdown: Antonio Gates - Rivers throws too low + INTs = stunt any chemistry

QB

:thumbup: Eli Manning - think Pro Bowl.

:thumbdown: Daunte Culpepper - This is just bad news waiting to happen IMO. mangled knee, delays in rehab, new offense, silver medal for Saban, might not have a running game... way too many question marks.

D/ST

:thumbup: Texans - perfect personnel to run the 43. This will be a top-12 defense in the last round

:thumbdown: Jets - they were top 10 before this year, will struggle switching to a new scheme.

Are these based upon strength of schedule??? :confused:
 
Are there any in-depth SOS articles out there? Basing it on 2005 winning % doesn't really do much for me. I like to look at rushing and receiving SOS separately, based on yards allowed in 2005. I have yet to see one, though...

yep. bored. I still belive it is way to early to guess .

Def ranked overall as per,,, http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teameff.php.. data

and FBG data.

Just a simple total of the percentages.

 
One look at Chicago's schedule and I don't see how you take any other Team D before them. at least 9 games against very suspect offenses.

edit to add: the corollary to that should be that they are ahead and running out the clock a lot with the running game.

I don't disagree, but is top 12 defense really something to brag about? In a 10 or 12 team league, the 12th defense would be your second defense at best and at times may even be on the waiver-wire during tougher stretches.Top 12 WR makes sense if everyone starts 3 and you have 36 starters every week... I look for the top 3-5 defenses to matter and the rest are mostly just picking matchups.

If we're going to talk about sleeper/improving defenses though... Cleveland should be mentioned.

Week 11 - Washington

Week 12 - at Dallas (Thanksgiving)

Week 13 - at Pittsburgh

Week 14 - Atlanta

Week 15 - at Chicago

Week 16 - at Cleveland

:goodposting: Anyone have something to back up SOS :popcorn:

When does the SOS article go up?
