Driver and Gates IMMEDIATELY jump out at me from that list.

Driver is WR15 on there. He has finished better than that 4 of the last 5 years, and generally has finished quite a bit better.

Gates has put up almost identical numbers to Boldin the last 3 years, and he has done it from the TE position (thus adding more value) and he's still ranked 10 spots below Boldin, who you felt was underrated at 37.

I completely overlooked Gates because I usually associate his name with over-valued. But now that you mention it, he does seem a little low this season on Yahoo. I'll definitely look more closely at his stats tonight!

Yep, I've just realized to shut up in Yahoo! leagues. These are the same people that offere Brandon Jackson for Joseph Addai.

I even got laughed at in MDC. I got Portis in the 4th round 8-o , I repeat, 4th round. They said "haha ur gonna suck this year. that backup dude will get some touchdowns"

I've only laughed at a guy once. And i think I have the right. After all, he did draft Brady in the 7th spot...of the 1st round.

Portis in the 4th is amazing value.

MJD is ranked at 16 whilst Bush is at 17. IMO, MJD is way overrated as he isn't the clear starter in JAX and he will not get 16 TDs again this season.

Well I was able to jump on Julius Jones, but with my draft position I barely missed out on a few of the other values. Gates, Driver, etc were taken well above the Yahoo rank. Maybe next time!

I have several live drafts this weekend and went into edit my rankings today so that they are in order. The following are some of the more interesting Yahoo rankings imo:

Yahoo! rankings: wrote:WR Anthony Gonzalez 101
RB Chris Henry 106
RB Dominic Rhodes 113
WR Chris Henry 146
RB Kenny Irons 172
RB Cedric Houston 182

WR Nate Washington 1390
RB Curtis Martin 1440
WR Hank Baskett 1416
RB Chris Brown 1434
RB Najeh Davenpoop 1451
RB Kevan Barlow 1500
WR Brian Finneran 1552
WR Terrance Copper 1564
RB Mike Alstott 1603
WR Robert Meachem 1703
WR Jacoby Jones 1718
WR James Jones 1722


I'm hoping that nearly all Cafe members do auctions or live drafts with all league members present. But just in case some people don't show up for the draft and haven't adjusted their rankings, or God forbid your league does Autodraft and they haven't adjusted the Yahoo rankings, here are some observations:

  • You'll probably see WR Anthony Gonzalez, RB Chris Henry, and RB Dominic Rhodes on a lot of rosters of absentee drafters.
  • Kenny Irons is on IR for 2007, and Cedric Houston quit playing football and yet are ranked higher than hundreds if not thousands of other players
  • Curtis Martin retired, yet is ranked higher than many active players.
  • Kevan Barlow got cut by the Steelers earlier this week yet is ranked higher than many active players.
  • Brian Finneran and Mike Alstott are on IR for 2007 and their careers are possibly over, yet are ranked higher than many active players.
  • If you buy into preseason hype, notice how lowly ranked the Jones rookies are. You can probably wait until the very last rounds of your draft to grab one.

I like doing this kinda stuff. I'll go position by position.
QB:
Big Ben QB16
Delhomme QB17
Smith QB20

Ben is probably the best value here. I'd seriously target him as a 1st QB if I didn't get one of the top 5 or 6 guys.

RB:
Portis RB20
Caddy RB23
Peterson RB28
Jordan RB35
Foster RB36
MBell RB48
Peterson (Chi) RB52

Portis is a great 2nd RB and so is Caddy. Peterson is really low (lower than Lynch!). Jordan is probably the best value here. At RB35 you can probably get him in the 6-8th round, a steal at RB3 or 4. Bell and Peterson are both top backups.

WR:
Walker WR13
Driver WR16
Coles WR22
Ma. Clayton WR29
Holmes WR36
Porter/Curry WR43/44
Crayton WR80
Northcutt, Jam. Jones, Jac. Jones WR? (over 100)

Clayton and Holmes are both young high upside guys that stand out. Oakland WRs get no love, I think they have decent value as WR4s.

TE:
Not much value here. Gates isn't spectacular value at Ovr30. Since I gotta pick someone I'll say Scaife at TE25.
