Future Value

Postby abrunn11 » Tue Aug 05, 2008 2:19 pm

I am looking for guys that will have future value (2 or three years down the road). Guys that will be starters in a couple of years. In my keeper league if you want to keep you 16th round draft pick you need to give up your 14th round pick the next year. SO I am looking for guys that I can get late in the draft that will help me in a few years.

Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

QB-Chad Heine (sp) Dolphins. Ex Michigan QB has a strong and accurate arm and little competition in Miami.
WR-Sweed Pittsburgh-Should be a regular starter within 2-3 years.

List:
Fred Jackson - BUF - RB Young backup to Lynch, could take the reins if Lynch struggles or gets injured

Darius Walker - HOU - RB Someone in the next couple of years will have to take over the Houston ground game and I've heard good things about him

Jamal Charles - KC - RB Drafted 3rd round this year, I like the video I've seen of the kid, Larry has a lot of yards on him and they need someone to start spelling him more, and eventually take over (ala Priest -> LJ sort of)

Brian Calhoun - DET - RB If Detroit can get their crap together he might have a chance to do something, having missed the majority of both of his first two seasons in the league due to knee injuries he might finally have a chance to do something once he garners a role, which shouldn't be too hard considering who is in front of him

Anthony Aldridge - DEN - RB what sleeper/future discussion wouldn't be complete without a Denver RB? My choice: Aldridge. You know each and every year every back in Denver has a chance for the starting Job, and Aldridge coming in as an undrafted free-agent is no exception.
From footballguys.com on Aldridge:
Quick fantasy outlook: Mike Shanahan loves what he's seen of Alridge in college, and now it's time to find out if he can make it in the pros. The Broncos have plans for Alridge not only as a runner and receiver, but also as a valuable part of their special teams unit. Anthony should make the team and start wowing coaches and fans from the word go. Even if Anthony struggles as a RB early, the Broncos could find a spot for him as a slot receiver. Quick Six and the Torain Train could end up being the Broncos RBBC of the future.

Calhoun would be an absoulte shocker if he amounts to anything. He is injury prone and too slow.

Just for the record, Fred Jackson is already 27 years old. He's a solid hand-cuff, but he's not someone who I think you can rely on in a couple of years when he's pushing 30...

Although I should add, if he ends up starting for the iggles, it'll be 3-4 years probably not 2-3
