LT2 at 3?? and how can Larry Johnson be ranked #1 and Priest #15?? I doubt LJ will be the #1 back if Padre is still hanging around taking away a few touches and looks... samkon gado at 19? 8-o and Reuben Droughns, who actually had a very nice season, at 23?!? and Domanick DAvis at 25?!! is he assuming the Texans have REggie Bush or what... and how the heck can TO be the best WR is he doesnt even have a team yet... And Moss and Harrison at 7 and 8 is also nuts... Plummer is also ranked too low at 18... I'm tired of reading this

this guy sucks :-t

yes, this is terrible. too many assumptions to make in order to rank players for next year. so many things are going to change this offseason, and these predictions are insane. i could not even imagine putting one of these together right now.

What is Fabiano's expertise?

I mean - how did he get his job - seriously? Does anyone know his background - was he some sort of fantasy guru before CBS picked him up? Did he have his own website or work for a competitor?
