SI Rankings

Postby steelerfan04 » Wed Aug 01, 2007 6:21 pm

SI came in the mail today, and this issue they have their fantasy football preview. Some of the rankings were very questionable, IMO, especially the WR ones.

Joe Horn #17 WR
Steve Smith #7, behind Colston and Roy Williams
Guys like Jerry Porter, Donte Stallworth, and both Bears WRs ahead of Braylon Edwards and Reggie Brown (#47 WR)
McNabb #13 QB

Just a few that jumped out at me. Anyone else have any to add?

Si is traditionally terrible for fantasy baseball as well as football. They had Joe Mauer in the first round this year (could have been last, but I'm not 100 percent)
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

It's amazing to me how inept some mainstream sports publishers are at fantasy football.

Yeah, it just doesn't make sense that you can't rely on SI and ESPN for fantasy help...I mean for god sake they inform us of all the happenings around sports...can't they just put 2 and 2 together?! :,-(
