What's the opinion on him? I'm in the 18th and final round of a slow draft. I was wondering if you guys think he can rebound from missing a whole year with injury to get me say, 600-700 yds and 4-6 TDs? I don't really have any needs and there aren't any surefire impact players out there, of course, so it seems like a good time to take a gamble. Just wondering if he could be a good pickup. If I don't take him, then I'm probably gonna take another kicker. Probably Nick Kaeding. Thanx for the help.

don't take 2 kickers. anyone is better than having 2 kickers. mark bradley still available? i'd rather have him than pinkston. pinkston is going to be the 4th option in the pass attack. you can do better.

Bradley's gone, sadly. i really wanted him, but he was taken a little earlier than I expected. Any good, deep RB sleepers you think might be around right now? My RB situation is the only one on my team that might be questionable. I have:

Reuben Droughns
Jamal Lewis
LenDale White
Mwelde Moore
Adrian Peterson (picked up in 16th as a sleeper in case TJ gets hurt/traded, Benson gets hurt, or both)

Is this a keeper/dynasty or a redraft? I dont suppose Jerome Harrison is available to backup Droughns? Also, I think Ladell Betts is a good pick this late in a dynasty/deep keeper. I think he has a chance to become somones Lamont Jordan next year. Maybe Cedric Humes from Pittsburgh? He could eventually fulfill the Bettis role.

Pinkston is basically worthless I think.

Todd Pinkston doesnt deserve to be wearing a jersey. He's a coward when he runs his routes, he drops passes routinely, the onyl thing he's good for is getting penalties called against defenders because its so easy to send him sprawling to the ground. I'd draft Gafney, Greg Lewis, and Jason Avant before Pinkston in a fantasy league.

Take one of the RBs terp mentioned.

Here are some deep RB sleepers

Jerome Harrison CLE
Lee Suggs CLE (probably traded)
Maurice Hicks SF
Ciatrick Fason MIN
Verron Haynes PIT
Duce Staley PIT
Cedric Humes PIT
Eric Shelton CAR
Nick Goings CAR
Cedric Cobbs DEN
Leon Washington NYJ
Michael Bennett NO (probably traded)
Correll Buckhalter PHI (minor miracle if he plays but he had talent before his multitude of injuries)
Bruce Perry PHI
Quentin Griffin KC

If you are looking at Philly receivers, I would consider Jabar Gaffney over Todd Pinkston. I would also consider the two no-names at Detroit - Corey Bradford and Scottie Vines. Pinkston hated contact before - I am almost afraid to watch him after a career threatening injury.

Being a Bear's fan you can probably answer this better than me, but what about taking a flyer on Airese Currie, last years 5th round pick - I know the Bear's were really high on him last year because of his great speed but he didn't get a chance to show it because of injuries - what's the scoop on him this year???

Not much has been said about him at all. I'm pretty sure he's like the fifth option behind Bradley, Muhammad, Gage, and Berrian. Anyway, yes, it's a keeper, but this pick has no effect on my keepers because we only keep 4.

I think I'm gonna go with Scottie Vines. Completely forgot about him. He's the #2 for Detroit, no?

Hard to say how #2 will sort itself out in Detroit - should be Mike WIlliams but his head isn't on straight, and then there's Vines, Rogers and Bradford to duke it out - and Martz did bring Furrey along with him and he could be either a DB or WR - big question mark in motor city.
