The only dissappointment is the games missed to injury, when playing he's been a top 3 QB the last few years. He may not throw 40 TDs, but he sure does make up for it with those 300 and 400 yard games week in and week out.
He's also perhaps the most consistent guy week to week. Excluding games he missed to injury, I believe in the last 4 years he has only put up less than 10 fantasy points (in a standard 25yds per point and 4pts per pass TD league) one time.
I agree with you Bagel. Bulger, prior to getting injured, was on a near NFL single season yardage record pace. Had he remained healthy, he could very well have challenged for the single season record. A new regime in STL should mean more protection for him which should equate to better production.
I don't think I would call next year's class weak at all, rather, for those that aren't likely to take a "top QB" high in the draft, it simply means that there will be more similar type players to be taken later at a better value. I mean, what was Palmer's ADP this past season? Not many leagues that I was had him in the top 5 in the draft and in most scoring systems he was the top guy.
Value, value, value, that's the name of the game.
