Marcus Robinson sticks out like a sore thumb. :-o

Stokley, Toomer, and J. Smith are all a bit high...

Fitz and Chambers look a little low.

And McCardell and Morton probably shouldn't even be on the list...

Only change I can conceivably think of is moving P. Burress up to top 15. I'm high on him only because Eli doesn't have anyone else to throw to. I would rather have the only talented(sic) WR on a team than to have, say, A. Boldin since he's going to be sharing yardage with Fitzgerald and Johnson. Same reason makes me think R. Moss will put up good numbers this year, but not as good as the Bucs Clayton.

Why does Robinson stick out so much? I mean, given the lack of Randy Moss, are you thinking Nate Burleson is going to be the only guy in Minnesota catching passes, or is it just possible that maybe Daunte might spread the ball out a little?

I hope everyone I draft with in my money league is thinking like you are, because I think Robinson is one helluva good sleeper this year... I see no reason why he shouldn't be a 1000 yard receiver by year's end.... I mean last year he put up like 700 and 8 TD's, right? I see no reason why those numbers shouldn't increase dramatically with him spending an entire season on the field....

I think the important thing to note is that MRob stock should fall, given the supposed arrival of Mike Williams. Plindsey included no rookies. So, right now, Marcus Robinson is a good place. If Mike Williams gets drafted, I would place him in MRob's spot.

Yes, that's true... This list I made is without factoring in the draft... Obviously some of these guys will see their stock drop depending on how the draft goes....

Plindsey,

For somebody who was gone for a while. You sure do have alot of lists prepared and ready to go.

or are you simply using the forums to create and adjust your list as you go. Thinking out loud in a way.

Man you are putting up some serious topics. I like it alot.

When you said you were back. You weren't kidding. :*)

Your list looks cool

Hienz...i have outside the top 15. My theory is that Ward is a clutch wr. Unfortunately Big Ben is not a clutch qb.

Mrob at 20 or 21 is debatable. As of today i have him outside the top 30(still adjusting) But i know exactly what you are thinking. Mrob is a TD specialist especially with Cpep. Not much for yardage though.


Mason i like where you have him.

DDriver i would put ahead of Stokely.Quite a few guys on your list i might have ahead of stokely. Because of his #3-2 status on the colts. I am defaulting to that #1 wr rule is better than #3 wr. I know that rule has its holes but still.

Smoss is 8-10 spots to high

Chambers should be in the top 30 but you aren't far off at 33

Branch is top 25-27 material next season.

Calico and Bennett i would flip flop. but put Calico in the 26-33 range.

I would put Reche Caldwell ahead of McCardell in SD. Watch out for Reche.

J morton always disappoints. So he is out of the top 50

P, this is the kind of stuff that makes this site so cool ... good job ;-D

One comment: You have the wrong Chief listed. Morton is getting fairly long in the tooth. Eddie Kennison is the one you want to list ... 1086 and 8 TDs. Thats in the Moulds, Burleson, Ward, Stokely neighborhood.

Great list overall...However, I'm not so high on Andre Johnson this year. The Texans didn't really do a great job to improve the O-line (the Orlando Pace deal fell apart) or the WR corps. Johnson is gonna face double teams all year long just like he did last year. Let's just see how they draft. I'd rank AJ in the 10-15 range right now.

Jimmy Smith is fine right where he is...so what if he's old? He's dang consistent and would be an awesome #3 WR to have because he could produce like a #2. Leftwich should continue to improve as well. Tons of people forget about Jimmy.

Yeah, I'd probably put Andre down a little also. Carr still isn't showing me enough to warrant taking him that high. Walker should be good again with Favre still around, and D. Driver is another #3 WR steal.

Muhammad all the way down at #25 after his huge year? I doubt he'll be drafted that low in a lot of leagues, but I wouldn't trust the Bears passing attack either. :-)

Thanks for putting that together for us all, Plindsey. ;-D
