I've only had a chance to look at the QB's, but I would bump Bulger from tier 3 to 4 or 5.

Uh....no. Dont do that

I really like your WR rankings but Bowe is definitely too low. I would draft him over most guys in the tier above. Qb's are tougher and i would make a few minor changes but looks good. solid list

Just noticed....Chris Cooley in Tier 3 of TE's is too low. Get him at the top of Tier 2

Re: 2008 Fantasy Football Tiers - QB - RB - WR - TE - K - DEF

Postby My team is injured » Thu Aug 21, 2008 11:59 am

I'm assuming the rankings are based on "standard" scoring and no PPR or TD heavy scoring (20 yds ru/rec. for 1 pt as opposed to the standard 10 yds).

As such, a few real quick suggestions based on QB (PPR has skewed my perception too much for standard scoring to quickly evaluate RB/WR/TE):

1.) Move Palmer down to Tier 3 (no big deal and they did just re-sign another weapon in Henry anyway) and Bulger down to Tier 5 (definitely too high for Bulger IMO).

2.) Kurt Warner should be bumped up quite a bit based on his upside if he takes over the starting role at some point. Certainly ahead of guys like Grossman and Croyle at the least. I'd also reconsider how you have the SF and Chicago QBs ranked as you have the current starters behind the current backups. And while I don't think any of the 4 should be drafted, I'd put O'Sullivan as having the most upside and the most draftable as things stand now.
All of my analysis is based on PPR

Solid list.. I'm sure everyone could nit-pick and change up a few things but that is the beauty of FF. You can modify things to fit your beliefs/projections but this provides a nice basis. Good work ;-D

Postby TheMax » Fri Aug 22, 2008 12:13 pm

QB- Bulger down to 4 or 5

RB- TJones and MTurner to 4, McGahee to 5

WR- Harrison to 5, CJ2 to 4, Bowe to 5, KCurtis down (injury)

TE- Cooley to 2

K and D don't really matter to me, so I won't even bother looking at them...
