So I take it you dont like the Eagles.

Overated in real life
QB - Favre (not in his carrear just recently)
RB - Alexander
WR - Horn
TE - Witten
DEF - Pittsburgh

But the most overrated player in the league has to be Ray Lewis. There's no way that you can say that he's still the best MLB in football.

Underrated in real life
QB - BulgerQB - Green
WR - Roy Williams
RB - Rudi
TE - Heap
DEF - Oakland

Overrated in fantasy
QB - Brady
WR - Coles
RB - Tiki
TE - Colston
DEF - Carolina

Underated
QB - Kitna
RB - Ronnie Brown
WR - Wayne
TE - Watson
DEF - Green Bay

not saying he is still the best MLB in football, but he is still one of the best...and captains one of the best defenses in the league. dont see how he can be the most overrated given how well he is still playing.

I dunno. Overrated has been used so casually lately I'm not even sure what it means anymore when applied to sports players. Are people saying overrated players aren't good anymore? Or just that they're over-exposed in the media? Because then it would be more of an issue of over-hyped than overrated.

Maybe I shouldn't have said he his the most overrated player since he is still a top LB. It just pisses me off every sunday when I have to hear Michael Irvin babble on about how his boy Ray Ray is gonna single handedly shut out whoever the Ravens are playing.

Ugh, no offense, but I totally disagree with just about everything on this list. How is Chris Chambers overrated? He's a physical freak with good hands and speed. How is Tom Brady overrated? He's currently the fifth rated QB in my league. In no way shape or form is Denver an underrated fantasy defense. They're pretty good in real life, but that's not translating to many fantasy points. And for my final thing, neither KJ nor Westy are overrated to the least bit. If anything, they're underrated. Westy can do it all, as can KJ.

I don't know about Colston. How can you say he is overrated? He's a rookie and doing great.

I was trying to make a joke by saying he's overrated as a TE. Obviously he's not overrated since hes the 3rd scoring reciever as a rookie.

You're out of your mind, looks like you're an Eagle HATER, sorry about 4th and 26 buddy

He is the BEST QB in the NFC and the 3rd best in the entire league

And he has been doing it since he's been in Philly
a) without a running game
b) without even an average WR corp. He had T.O. for one season, that's all he had.

Could you imagine if Andy Reid actually got a clue and stopped being stubborn and drafted or signed an actual RB to run the ball with consistancy, or decided to sign a stud WR that wasn't a mental case ?

As for Westbrook he is the closest thing to Marshall Faulk in the NFl well, since Marshall Faulk. He is THE MOST DANGEROUS RB in the league outside of LT2. I'm not saying he's the best, just one of the most dangerous and hardest to defend.
