This year's drop-offs...

Postby Wesley Walker » Mon Jul 31, 2006 10:08 pm

How 'bout a discussion of who we fear might drop significantly in fantasy value for this season?

A few ideas:

Randy Moss -- You could say last year was his big dropp off season. But you could also say he was adjusting to a new team, with an unsettled QB situation, and that this year will be different. If it's not, given his past greatness, we'll be talking about him in a different category from what he once was.: A first tier fantasy receiver.

Edge -- How will he fare in a new system, with a much less potent offense, away from Peyton's arm?

Deuce -- Slowed a bit, challenged for playing time, in a reshuffled offense: Is Deuce no longer worthy of draft consideration in the early rounds?

Anyone have other ideas?

Steve Smith. Everybody's expecting the world from this guy, and why shouldn't they - he took the league by storm last season. But since history constantly repeats itself, it's that the number one WR from the year past has a significant fantasy value drop - 250 - 1000 yrds even. Don't get too worried but something to consider when drafting your top WR. Good luck!

I think some of the breakthrough WRs will have down years. Guys like Steve Smith, Santana Moss and Joey Galloway wil all underperform IMO.

Neil Rackers - First to pop in my head. Kickers arnt sexy to talk about but he is inevitably going to drop.

Trent Green - He getting old(with most of the rest of the offense). Add to that Herm Edwards, who is more conservative than his predassesor, and wants to run the ball 500 times.

Keenan McCardell - 80 years old, new QB, career high in TDs at his age. Hes going down.

Santana Moss - Maybe not to the degree of the above 3 but I have a hard time seeing him repeat last year, especially if Brunell gets hurt or looses his job to Campbell.

Edge is away from the colts, but it's not like he is with the Bears offense.

Shaun Alexander, I don't see him coming close to last years production. I wouldn't be surprised to see last yrs TD totals cut in half.

The thing that I love is that most people think Shaun Alexander are going to do much worse than next year than last year, and yet the expect Steve Smith to put up similar numbers as last year. Kinda hypocritical? Yeah.

Agree with all the candidates here but in particular, S Smith. I just don't see the physical ability here for him to be big time yr over yr. When you look at the guys who are consistant, they are just bigger and stronger. Sorry, but in no order I have TO, Marv, Holt and R Moss ahead of him right now.
CheeseWhiz is a great substitute for plazma.

i actually like randy a whole lot this year. i think arron brooks is a huge upgrade over kerry collins. i like the idea of brooks being forced out of the pocket, because of the bad oakland o-line, and just throwing bombs to randy. with porter(probably), moss and lamont, i see brooks thriving in oakland. should be a fun offense to watch.

also the raiders will probably be playing from behind a lot this year, which never hurts your wideouts.
