Ahman Green seems really high. Also, you take a chance with Reuben Droughns, but I don't think i'd rank him over McGahee. Jamal lewis is not a pass catcher, so he seems a little high to me. And are you really going to draft bell before Mike Anderson? I wouldn't. I might also put Thomas jones up a few pegs. Those are solid nonetheless, but Ahman seems like the biggest thing I'd change, it doesn't seem likely he'll be playing anywhere but GB.

Personally I believe you have either DD too high or too low depending on exactly what Houston does with their #1 pick. Oviously he's high if they with anyone but D'Brickashawk.

IMO, Westbrook it too low, especially in a PPR league. He has better pass-catching ability than Clinton Portis does. I'd move Westbrook ahead of Rudi Johnson.

And where is Deuce McAllister? He has to be in the top 20 somewhere.

I'd agree with the captain and say that westbrook is pretty low for PPR. With TO gone he is gonna get a TON of balls thrown his way. Best hands on that team, TO or no TO.

I would put Tiki above Portis, unless we're all going to ignore him again this year. I would rank Rudi a little better. I'd prefer him over Lamont and Portis. I would need to see what Philly does before I get Westy on my team. Thomas Jones is way too low. Oh, and like others have said...Deuce?

You'd rank Rudi over LaMont's 70 catches in a PPR league?

Yikes.

I am under the impression that the injury suffered by Deuce McAllister was very serious, and his status for next year is very much in question right now.
