Yahoo article about Wide Receivers

Postby The Lung » Thu Jul 12, 2007 3:54 pm

Author Brad Evans makes some very valid points about WRs drafted rounds later averaging a miniscule 2.5 points-per-game shy of the top WRs.

Hiring guys away from TalentedMrRoto was a good move for Yahoo. :-b


Another good article. Thanks, Lung! ;-D

His opinions arent bad, but I cant stand reading more than 5 minutes worth of his columns. Does he seriously have to make a stupid little quip or pop-culture reference in every single paragraph? He is the definition of annoying.

Hey Crippler, I respect your opinion. I'm sure there are tons of other Y! readers who echo your thoughts.

Whether you love it or hate it, this has always been my style. In order to differentiate from the same mundane material that hundreds of other sites analyze I try to put a fresh, energetic, entertaining and unique spin on fantasy football. Honestly, doing it this way keeps it exciting for me.

If you have difficulty stomaching the abundance of pop culture references, by all means, skip over them and peruse the analysis. Hopefully, that part of my work speaks for itself.

Oh, and it's ALMOST every paragraph. :-)

Welcome to the Cafe! :-)


I liked the article, but I wanted to ask - did you look at years past for your stats or just last year? Because it seems to me (without doing any research on this) that 2006 was an unusual year for WR in that there was not this huge disparity, and more than one guy came out of the pack to challenge the "top tier" guys for overall points. My recollection is that usually you can count on one or two guys coming out of the pack, not several. Kevin Curtis a couple of years ago and Brandon Stokley a year before that are the two that most easily come to mind.

Good article and something to think about when a receiver run starts in my next draft

Wow, Brad "Bringin' the Noise" Evans is now a Cafe member! How cool. B-)

I read A LOT of fantasy football articles on many different websites, and let me tell you that it's dry, mundane reading. Humor is often tough to accomplish in fantasy football, and I really appreciate when the Fanball and Yahoo! guys are able to work funny quips or pop-culture references into the mix. Christopher Harris' lamentations about John Cougar Mellencamp's patriotic menace last fall had me in stitches. Brad, your analysis speaks for itself and keep being true to your writing style. There are many, many people out there who truly appreciate it. ;-D

Yep. Count me among that group. Analysis is great. Funny analysis is even better (as long as it's accurate). ;-D

Thats funny - and here I thought that I too could talk smack in the cafe about journalists, players and coaches without any fear of repercussion.

I just hope that Ron Dayne never reads my posts, cause there may be one or two things I had written that he takes offense too (though I am pretty sure the turkey leg permanently stuck in his mouth obscures his reading vision).
