So how high is AJ's value...after a solid year so far?

Postby warrick95 » Sat Nov 20, 2004 12:03 pm

Thanks to the Cafe's other post about buy low WRs, I'm considering chasing AJ. Where do you guys rank him in the group of WRs...top-10, or even top-5? Do you rank him above some solid vets like Holt, Ward, Mason, D. Jackson, J. Smith, and Chad Johnson? What about fellow breakout star Javon Walker? Do you take the track record over the insane athletic ability and potential, or vice versa?

Here are my top-10 WRs (and where AJ fits in with them)...feel free to post a rebuttal or agree...

1. Owens
2. (Moss when he returns)
3. Harrison
4. Horn
5. Ward
6. Holt
7. Walker
8. A. Johnson
9. J. Smith
10. D. Jackson
(CJ and Mase just missed the top-10)

Furthermore, what RBs are around the value of Andre Johnson? Currently, I have five RBs to start in four spots. James, J. Lewis, McAllister, Droughns, and C. Brown. I'm thinking that all are above AJ, with Brown only slightly above...

Thanks for reading the long post and helping.

Rotoworld did mention this little tidbit, though. Who knows if AJ will adjust in time for the rest of the year:

Andre Johnson's production is down dramatically since teams began routinely double-teaming him.
It was bound to happen. But all that safety help is hurting A.J.'s big-play ability. That said, Johnson is a young star who can adjust. This week, versus the terrible Green Bay secondary, is a good time to start.

Drop Horn and Ward down a few notches in your rankings and move AJ up. AJ is Top 7.

Mine are:

1. Owens
2. Moss
3. Harrison
4. Walker
5. Andre
6. Holt
7. Horn
8. Ward
9. Jackson
10. Wayne

I like Ward alot, I just cant see him being the same with Plax. Andre is Top 5 as far as I'm concerned. Roy Williams is very close to Top 10 also.

Holt
Mason
J. Smith
A Johnson

I can't see Mason not in the top ten,and Johnson has really only done it for games...not a season.The last 3-4 weeks he has killed me.These other guys are vets that do it every year,with the exception of Walker.Walker's value drops immediately the day Favre retires.(next year?)

Not if they can pick up a QB like Brees. Also, Mason isn't Top 10 this year... his #'s just aren't worthy.

Drew Brees is no Brett Favre.

No he isn't, not many people are or ever will be but he has matched Favre TD for TD this year. Not to mention 6 less interceptions. 6:1 ratio.

With receivers like Driver/Walker I think he could make a killing considering what he's throwing to right now.
