These are pretty bad. I just stopped after seeing Moroney ranked 24th and Randy Moss 26th.

Last year I used these rankings for an entire draft. Guess what? I won my league. I'm not using them again because I think the Cafe is a better place for rankings, but I still have a place in my heart for them :-B

Although I did take Warner in the third round...

I'm not so sure what's so funny about Brees over Palmer to be honest. I might be tempted to go that route too. They are probably comprable, but Brees has put up monster seasons for two seperate teams already--so he knows the position. And he has tools galore in New Orleans, and a nice offensive gameplan to keep the pressure off. His running game is awesome, and you can't account for both Deuce and Bush easily. Then he has a nice mix of targets to catch the ball. I think its legit enough, especially considering the caliber of opponents each will face.

If it were me, I'd probabyl have it something like:

manning
brees
palmer
brady
mcnabb

The reality is that manning is mr. consistency, but I think any of those could end up as fantasy number one. Manning is a statistical god, brees put in a monster season, palmer is on the upswing, brady has way more weapons than in the past, and McNabb was the number one before going down. Granted, he might not make it all the way through, but he has been putting up monster stats the past three years (two of which ended in unrelated injuries). Bulger merits mention in here, but I think if health isn't a consideration, he, romo and rivers flesh out the next three.

To be honest, and not to beat a dead horse, I don't get the groundswell of hype for Palmer. That's not to denigrate Palmer, he is obviously elite and up-and-coming. But it's not like his body of work is above reproach, and I really don't get how is summarily number three all of a sudden. (This is just how it seems to me). I've seen people real and fantasy put him above McNabb (injuries not withstanding). I just don't see it, the body of work isn't there relative to some other people. Playoffs and such aren't relevant in this forum, but McNabb's best season is better than Palmer's best, same with Brees. And both have been doing it longer, so I'm more inclined to trust them. Of course, since Donovan gets hurt every year anymore I'd take Palmer above him, but seriously, its alsonot a stretch for someone to bet this is the year donovan stays healthy and keeps it going (this has been three seasons in a row now where he has been putting up monster stats for the first half, 2004 of course the whole year), and with another year in the system, Brees could maybe do 85 percent or more of what he did last year.

I don't find it laughable in the least, although I disagree with SI's rankings. They have the worst fantasy rankings (football and baseball) of any major outlet in my opinion.

I think the reason several fantasy owners/experts rank Carson Palmer so high is because they are trying to catch "that" season. He has become an upper-echelon quarterback, but most of us still think there is more to come from him (maybe rival Peyton Manning at some point?). So I think people will keep him above the proven performers of Brees, McNabb and maybe even Brady b/c they know Palmer is close to over-taking those guys permanently and they are trying to own him when he does.

I guess my point is how do they know? He had one superb season in his career. I know you can't draft for the past per se, but then again he has never had a season that exceeded McNabb, Peyton, Brees, and he hasn't had the uber consistent body of work that Brady has had. Granted, I think Caron's upside is more than Brady's,a nd with Brady you are paying for "not crapping the bed" so to speak. I just don't see how Carson's upside can be SO much higher to ignore the track records. It's a judgment call to be sure though.
