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.
*lol* I'm almost sure you're joking, but if not you should loosen that o-ring a few 100 degrees.
The article is acutally pretty good.
McNabb was never a top 10 QB before TO. He averaged 15 TD a year before TO. The article says based on ADP, he's very poor value. Which is 100% true.
Next, the article says Priest being a TOP 4 PICK, is a no thanks. Which is pretty good advice. Once you hit 5-6-7, that's probably the sweet spot to grab him. Again, good advice.
DD, great advice on him too. He's is being overvalued for where he's going. Fact is Texas had a few good games WITHOUT him, and there was concern he was going to split time when returning. Anyone taking DD in the first round is crazy. He has little to no chance of being a top 5 RB, and he might not even be a top 10 RB.
Next, anyone drafting Peerless is a moron. Period. Having watched every falcon game for the last 4 years, there is little to no value for ANY Falcon WR, period.
Next, Clarett has 0 value in a re-draft league this year. You can't even argue that.
I love the Boo Williams comment. I actually saw him drafted a few days ago. *lol*
I'll go as far to say that this is one of the better FF articles I've read this year. Of course having the ADP helps, but they are showing where people are going, and who is going to high. We all knew McNabb would go far too high, and he is.
And the Priest comment was mostly correct, but should be explained. Due to FA for the backup RB, they wanted to give LJ a real test in the last part of the season. They were out of it, Priest was banged up, so they were HAPPY to have him rest and sit it out. I'm sure both sides were happy, but to put it all on Priest isn't fair. BUT, if they are out of it, and he's hurt, he might sit out again. Older RB, who's always banged up, team out of playoffs, Priest might do JACK for the last 5 games. So it is a worry. And I agree with the author, too much of a worry for a top 4 pick. 5-6-7, okay I can probably do it. Again, the author was dead on.
The one mistake is, the article should be titled
"DO NOT DRAFT LIST AT THIS ADP"
Obviously you'd take Priest in the 2nd round for example. But if you actually read arcticle vs "Priest - Do not draft" and then start freaking out, you can't argue with most of it.
