Annual Draft Bargain: Warrick Dunn

Postby MeShawn » Fri Jul 15, 2005 10:51 pm

Antsports ADP: 5.01 (12 team league)


Here's how he's fared since he entered the league in '97. These numbers might be a little startling to some.


'97: RB13
'98: RB19
'99: RB21
'00: RB15
'01: RB23 (only played 13 games)
'02: RB19
'03: RB27 (only played 11 games)
'04: RB15


Dunn remains one of the most underrated players in fantasy. In '01 and '03, his seasons were cut short by injury. Over 15-16 games, he would have been a top 20 RB again, easily. So that means every year the past 8 years, he's finished in the top 24 RB's.

In a twelve team league, he's a sufficient #2 RB. He finished as the #15 RB last year (8-o), yet, he's still being drafted at 5.01 in antsports ADP (serious mocks).

Nothing has changed from from the past. Dunn will continue to be overlooked by fantasy managers, while putting up big numbers. Nothing will change with TJ Duckett either. He'll still get his 500 yards and 7-8 TD's, but that doesn't effect Dunn from producing.

Besides getting older. Dunn will continue to produce for 2 or 3 more years.

If only we lived in a world without T.J. Duckett. Imagine what could be.

People keep figuring that his age, his size, and Duckett will catch up to him - so far they're wrong!

I like Warrick Dunn, always have. I agree he is a very underated player! He had some huge games a few years. I might take a stabb at him in a few leagues! ;-D
Keep it lit.

this is his last year he will produce. the falcons redid his contract and there is no way that they can afford to keep him next season, his salary is ridiculously high in 06.

I worry about his size and his age. Of course 30 isn't that old for a scatback, but I still don't like Duckett's presence.

I'd prefer to have a workhorse, I hate those RBBC situations.

I was blessed to have him as my # 3 RB last year.

Now a team has him as their # 2 RB in our keeper league.

He is solid.

Heh I go into every year thinking Dunn is undervalued, yet never end up with him on my team because there's always someone there to scoop him up just before I would.

He should play well above his draft status once again this year.
