I love me some Crayton this year. I think the Ds will be focusing on the top three of T.O., Witten, and Barber that Crayton could get loose for more than a few bombs this year in addition to grab a handful of passes per game. Great value in most drafts.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I'll take a late round flyer on him, but he pretty much is at Ray Finkle status with me right now, until he redeems himself. And not by dropping a wide open endzone pass against the Pats :-b


Yup..well said. I agree.

Hmmm. If I were the Dallas OC I would be running a ton of 3 wide formations getting Sam Hurd or Austin Miles out there to put defenses in nickel packages so Witten gets into single coverage with an LB and it also allows great checkdowns into the flat to Barber/Jones. This will force teams to not use man coverage. In a zone you'll see the ball head toward TO and maybe Witten on the seam. Personally I don't see Crayton getting very consistent passes outside of a standard formation, which doesn't utilize the weapons they have properly IMO.

I guess I just see Crayton as the odd man out here. I could be totally wrong and hell, I'm not an OC. :-D

I don't have any stats to prove this, but I would think that given Barber's running style, he'd be more suited to run the ball between the tackles. And if an offense is going to run mostly between the tackles, then you'd think they would want to have a FB in the game. That being said, the Cowboys do have a bunch of pretty good WR. I'd lean towards them using a standard formation, but you do make a good point....

I believe Peyton had more then 2 playoff struggles before his super bowl win didn't he? It's only been two years and one he was thrown in as the starter halfway through...There are alot more QB's who took more then 2 playoff trips to get their first win, its not like its been 7 years and no results.

One play in a playoff game doesn't really tell the story about a seasons worth of fantasy production.

There's reasons to hate on Michael Westbrook in your draft this year - but taking a knee at the 1 shouldn't be one of them. I'd put your Crayton analysis in the same category.

I don't care what he does on one play in one playoff game if he can give me some decent production during my fantasy season.

Totally agree. The only reason I'm hating on Michael Westbrook is that he hasn't played since '02... :-b
