USA Today's Top 10 to watch...

Postby cha » Mon May 15, 2006 3:55 pm

the two QB's picked were Rivers and Grossman. Anyone else think that is a bit of a reach by them? Maybe they can lead their teams somewhere.....but fantasy? That is asking a lot i think.

hm...

I think that those are both good sleepers. I think Rivers has good value in dynasty/ keepers, and Grossman could be a nice flier. My one problem with Grossman is that he is on the Bears. Bears never pass, and Grossman is more brittle than Great Grandmother Lynn :-o

Of all the QB's to pick, they select the two that near the bottom of all of my cheatsheets up to this point. Grossman isn't trustworthy at all and Rivers, are you kidding me?

Took Rivers in the 11th round of my dynasty draft to back up Manning for me. I think it was a pretty decent pick.

Rivers and Grossman? I'd say it's a stretch; one's on a running team and can never stay healthy. The others never been tested. They’re definitely not high on my radar at the moment.

i dont think rivers is much of a stretch for a sleeper....that sd offense is fit very well for his style. and w/ gates, he wont be forced to throw down the field until he is comfortable w/ it

Although I'm a huge Chargers fan, I wouldn't want Rivers as my backup QB this year ... unless I had Peyton. Great pick. He is the only QB I would want to pair with Rivers, for this year anyways. Obviously Rivers will only start for you on Peyton's bye week this year, so having him for 1 week as your starter isn't bad at all. And lucky for you, Rivers plays SF on Peyton's bye!
