Steve McNair and Deshaun Foster.

Postby Ball Sweat » Sat Jun 16, 2007 11:59 am

Now I haven't watched football in since the beginning of the 05 season, but is there some reason that I got these 2 as my 13th and 14th picks in a 10 team yahoo league? When I last watched they were both doing well and it seems according to the rankings they should've gone sooner. Thanks for the input I'm trying to get back into football after a couple years under a rock.

DeShaun Foster is assumed to be playing second fiddle to DeAngelo Williams this season, hence nobody wants to draft him. That said, I look at him as a value pick in the later rounds; I can see him being a reasonably good RB3 for you, which is a great bargain in the 'teen rounds. Also, he has injury concerns.

Steve McNair... well, he's old and he's throwing the ball in Baltimore. That said, I don't know why he's going as low as he does. He should improve his numbers in his second year in the Baltimore offense, and the Ravens have several WRs poised for breakouts.

Deshaun probably went where he should've. And Steve McNair has gone undrafted in alot of leagues. Just too many injury concerns, and not alot of weapons offensively.

Those are about where they should go. McNair probably shouldn't be drafted in a 10 team but it's not horrible for a backup QB. Foster should be going at about 110-140 overall IMO... I'd be ok with him as my RB4 right now...

Yeah, as the other guys have said, Foster has injury concerns and a more talented RB playing along side him (although I still think you got good value by getting him that late, and I think he'll produce much more than people are expecting). McNair is a solid mid-tier QB, but his production ceiling is fairly limited (good D and more ball-control offense doesn't lend itself to FF QB stats), and he's an injury risk also. Both are solid value guys that you did fine in drafting though...
