Plummer and Delhomme: Good Value Early?

Postby icenomad » Fri Aug 04, 2006 11:06 pm

Hey, everyone. I have a FFL on the NFL website, and my draft is coming up in about 3 weeks. I have my short list of RBs mostly figured out, but this year's QB situations are giving me headaches. In the NFL scoring system, passing TDs are worth six, so it's not necessarily to one's advantage to frontload with RBs right away.

After Manning, I'm a little disillusioned with my next few options. I don't want to risk a high pick on Palmer or Culpepper because they're coming off brutal injuries and might be shaky. I don't want McNabb either, since TO accounted for so many of his touchdown passes. I don't know how Brady will perform now that the Patriots have lost so many veteran receivers.

I am looking at picking up one of the two Jakes at QB. Would this be wise? Plummer only threw 7 picks last season, and with Rod Smith, Stephen Alexander and the new addition of Javon Walker, he has more options. Delhomme has been good in high-pressure situations, and he now has KJ in addition to SS.

Should I take one of these two, or look for someone else? Thanks in advance.

Palmer, despite injury, is definitely your best choice after Manning if youre looking to get a QB early.

IMO if your going to get a QB early, get Manning. Otherwise just pick up one in later rounds and help solidify the rest of your squad. Good luck.

The two that i really like for later rounds are Young Manning and Delhomme.

Manning is in his third year (the takeoff year) and the sky is the limit for this kid. He has the tools and the talent around him.

Delhomme has the veteran experience and absolute amazing tools around him. He has put pretty good numbers year in and year out and you can get him much later in most drafts.

If you're looking at the two jakes, go for Delhomme. He has the threat of Steve Smith. All he has to do is throw it in the air. Look for the addition of Meshawn to help out, but not bolster the offense.

Plummer usually falls pretty far in the mock drafts I have participated in. You don't need to grab him early. He'll be available late as a steal. Also undervalued are Warner & Vick. I think Rivers & Brooks are both good backup choices in 12-team leagues.
The facts have no meaning.

Take Hasselbeck in the fifth round or early in the sixth, or Jake Delhomme late 6th/early 7th.

i would shoot for delhomme in the 5th or 6th. he's really underrated and IMO is the best of that second tier group after manning/palmer/brady/dmac. with smith and keyshawn he has a lot of options and can be very dangerous. most of the other guys in that second tier are either on the decline or just too inconsistent in general.

Agreed.

If you're choosing from the two Jakes it's no contest. Delhomme.

If you really want Plummer figure on spending an 8th or 9th rounder to make sure you get him. That's still a bit of a reach on him, but also still great value.
