yeah, i couldnt draft faulk, holmes or edge unless i had the 10th pick. but only b/c of the injury questions. you just cant trust the all the positive spin that comes from these franchises. and chances are if your top pick goes lame and you dont have a first round caliber player to pick up the slack (which is easier to obtain w/ an early 2nd round choice), then your season probably will go bust.
i mean, for all the talk of sleepers and weekly matchups and their importance, having that star player(s) put up points week in-week out is still the most vital component of a fantasy squad. and the place you're most likely to find that player is in the 1st (or early 2nd) round. just a very obvious trend that i started picking up on a couple of years ago.
*for the record, i still believe sleepers and weekly matchups are EXTREMELY important.
