LOL, I have Priest ranked 2nd for a redraft. It's not like they have better weights in jail than they have in the Ravens training facility.

I would love to have been drafting 6th in your league. I understand why people pass on Holmes, but his high risk high reward is far greater than any player that is a risk. His reward side is: best fantasy football player. At least in my money league his 03 he put up 373 points, and last year Alexander led all RBs with 305 points, that's a massive reward, too much not to take a shot on once LT and Alexander are gone.


Maybe I was drafting 6th in his league! Priest fell to me at 6, and I never hesitated for a second. I have been one of Priests biggest detractors for the last 2 years, but even I couldn't pass on that one. Sealing the deal with LJ in the 6th round, I'm as happy as a bug in a rug! Lucky number 6 I guess, huh?

I think he meant fantasy team, as he didn't play in the fantasy playoff weeks.

No, he says he bailed on his team, not your team, or my team. He meant what he said, and should be pimp slapped for the craziness that is spewing from the evil pit he calls his mouth. Blasphemer!

Haha, I swear Mookie is my polar opposite.

Fittingly, I could not disagree more with just about every word in this article.

I mostly agree with the article.....although I would have to say....I don't need a list to keep this stuff in mind. I haven't killed off THAT many brain cells yet......I think. ;-D

Clearly an inflammatory article written to invoke reader response. This irresponsible juournalism, if you can call it that, may be fun to read but provides absolutely no help when formulating draft plans.

Geez, that this Bozo would even factor in draft results from drafts where Clarett and Price were chosen shows this clown didn't put much into the production of this rubbish.

That he says the Padre bailed on his team and doesn't bother to say how he came to that absurd notion is further proof of how little effort was done to compile this article.

FOX's credibility just took a huge hit.
