Vick, Fred Taylor, Ricky Williams, Penny, Muhammed.

Vick: Sucks. Will always suck. Can't stop himself from sucking.

Taylor: Gets injured. Will always get injured. Can't stop himself from being injured.

Williams: Do I really have to explain this one?

Penny: Will never reach his expected level of fantasy potential, injury last season seals the deal.

Muhammed: Not really explosive to begin with, then signs with the Bears. Need I say more?

I gotta agree with this.... But there are players I will not draft where they have to be taken this year.... These would include:

1) Peyton Manning in the 1st round....

2) Randy Moss in the late 1st / early 2nd.....

3) Willis McGahee in the top 5 overall....

4) Marvin Harrison in the 2nd round....

Vick was the first to come to my mind. Also, anyone drafted 2 rounds earlier than they are projected.

Peerless Price, Brandon Stokley, any KC WR, David Carr, Brett Favre, David Terrell, Michael Bennett, Jake Plummer, ANY pittsburgh TE, Michael Vick.

Favre throws too many balls up for grabs, he's the single most overrated player in fantasy football.

Brandon Stokley has 1 good year under his belt, 2004..he's only had 2 season with 16 games played..for his career, he's averaged 9.1 games played per year. He got a contract extension at the end of last season, but he performed well just so he could sign a lucrative contract and ride off into the sunset with the $$...I doubt he comes even close to approaching his 2004 #'s..

Price is a free agent bust that Atlanta overpaid for, he's also got health problems that could force him into early retirement.

KC recievers are just bad.

David Carr is going to become this year's
version of Tim Couch. He possibly the worst QB in the NFL...

Plummer and Bennett are busts, they have talent but never live up to their potential, constantly teasing fantasy owners with hopes of striking gold..

David Terrell is the best WR, in his own mind.

Pittsburgh's TE's are accounting for just 19 catches per year under Bill Cowher. Even with Heath Miller on board, I have to see it to believe it before I draft a TE from Pittsburgh.

Vick is the 2nd most overrated fantasy player, behind Brett Favre..he throws as many int's as tds..he's got a putrid Completion %..Lousy pocket passer..he's the best RB in football..unfortunately, he plays QB.

Last year Jake Plummer was the #5 rated fantasy quarterback in most leagues, behind Culpepper, Manning, McNabb, and Trent Green....

For a guy that can be had in the 6th or 7th round, I'd say that's pretty damn good.... And DEFINITELY not a "bust."

I can't see how you can call Favre the most overrated player in FF, Tanner. Although I would like to see Favre do nothing, as he is a division rival of my Lions, he has been far from "overrated".

Last year, when many (including myself) thougth it better for the old man to retire, he posted 4088 yards passing, 30 TDs, with 17 INTs. I thought like you that he was throwing to many into the air waiting for the WRs to make the play, towards the end of the 2003 season. So I stayed away from him. My bad.

He is a guy who has not missed in game since Jesus played, and has averaged 3900+ yards the last 11 seasons, and 30+ TDs in just the last 4 even.

being a colts fan i pay close attention to that team. to say stokely had a career year and may never live up to those numbers again is a valid argument. one i don't agree with, but valid. he may never get those numbers again as a #3 receiver....but he might. but that's not the point i'm arguing. could happen that way. but to say he just played for the contract and will disappear is totally off base. very stand up guy. hand picked by manning after he became a FA from baltimore. he attended a manning football camp while still in high school. manning was sold on him then. we know what kinda football player manning is(hard work, intelligent, work ethis, etc), stokely's the same kinda guy. he may not get the same td's or balls thrown his way, but i wouldn't bet against it either.

Response to AntiDraft players:

1) Barlow - for the last couple years, he's been so hyped up by
pro mock drafts, only to produce under-par
2) Bennett/Moore - pretty much any Minn. back, they're on the
RBBC extreme
3) Hakim - has had too many opportunities to step up, now that
his new home is NO, where Horn and Stallworth
reside, he looks to be only a no3 rec.
4) Booker - he went from one unstable passing offense to
I think a worse one
5) The Toker - Ricky "I really want to smoke dope, but if I have
to, I guess I play pro-football" ...no explanation
required
