The likelyhood that any QB play an entire season without missing a game is pretty remote - so for Peyton to do it 8 seasons in a row (this yr is his 7th) is really unlikely IMO. Just another something to think about.


Wasn't my study, it was Doug Drinen. QBs miss the most games per year to injury, RBs are next and WRs are relatively bullet proof by comparison.

Of course you have to take situation into account, and as long as Peyton is releasing that ball as quickly and decisively as he does, he's a low sack/injury risk. Of course, all it takes is a Lawrence Taylor to come crashing through and ruin his whole day...

No you are not the only person who will draft Daunte before Manning.

I will definitely draft C-Pep before Manning.

Did you mean to put Peyton up there twice?

These agruments are very interesting now when there is a lot to happen the end of this year, and quite an offseason to go.

This year I don't think there were too many people that took Manning over Culpepper.

I don't know though. Assuming he keeps that MVP trophy another year, I have a hard time seeing him not be the first QB drafted. Arguments could be made for taking McNabb higher than last year as well.

It would have been interesting to see how Culpepper could have fared all year with a healthy Moss. To see how close their stats would have been.

Chances are if you find yourself in an inexperienced league, the top 5 will likely be something

Manning
Cpepp
Mcgahee
SA
Dillon

Mine will be something boring like

LT2
SA
Deuce
Green
Edge

If I play in the same league next year as I am in now, I will definately go high on a QB again because of our scoring system. 1 pt for every 20 yards puts up HUGE numbers for the Cpepps and Mannings. They have consistantly outscored my running backs (LT and Dillon) by double most the season.

1. Holmes - if he comes back 100% healthy next year and Chiefs have no major personnel changes, gotta go with him again. He was on pace for 30 TDs and 2,300 total yards.

2. LT - old reliable Tomlinson may not have the yards he's had in the past but the TD's should be right on schedule. Remember he's been a little hurt this year too. No reason not to take him 2nd.

3. McGahee - he's scored 109 fantasy points in my league in his 6 starts. That's about 18 a game. I'm guessing his weak schedule these last 4 fantasy games will vault that average even higher. People made Portis a top 3 pick after he exploded in 12 starts his rookie year.

4. Alexander - when backs like Green, Portis, and McAllister have struggled this year Shaun's consistency pushes him into the top 4.

5. James - I'd have this guy at 2 if I knew Manning wouldn't vulture his TDs for his own glory. He scored 5 times in the first 5 games but only once since.
