They have a high powered offense in DAL, and TO and Barber consist of 70% of it. His QB loves him, and he is always a huge EZ target. TDs are sometimes flukey (word?) . . . but TO is a TD magnet. He is consistently one of the top WRs in the game, and since he has arrived in Dallas he has averaged 83 yards and 1 td/game. He's extremely consistent. Maybe you want to put him a couple spots down . . . fine. But the only guys drafted ahead of him (Moss and Edwards) aren't touching him. At this point I am not willing to give guys a higher ranking based on 1 or 2 games. Consistency counts.

In 5 years, AJ has never posted more than 8 TDs in any given year and never broken 1150 yards. He has only made it through three seasons healthy, and that also downgrades him in my book. As far as his QB is concerned, in 11 games last year, Matty Schaub threw 9 TDs and 9 INTs. He didn't look great in the preseason, and hasn't looked good in his only game this year. You want to give a guy like that the benefit of the doubt . . . fine. But I think people where were picking him to succeed this year weren't basing it on any actual facts.
Azrael wrote:I'm curious as to what DeSean will do once Brown and Curtis are healthy. He could be a glorious sell high candidate if he posts a couple more 100 yard games in their absence.
If that weren't a question, I would have ranked him higher. He has shone in the preseason, and in his 1st two games. I bet he holds on to the starting role, with Curtis on the opposite side of the field. But my crystal ball is broken. Dude has talent, and a great QB to get him the ball though.
Azrael wrote:Although we speculate he will be great, the jury is still out on Smith. But he's probably going to be a stud with Delhomme in there.
We know Delhomme loves him, and he is consistently good, with that crazy 1500+ yard season thrown in. I am comfortable with him at 8th overall.
Azrael wrote:Clearly the game is changing to a heavier passing scheme. Last year there were a record number of guys with double digit TD catches. When would you ever think that Fitzgerald having nearly 200 yards receiving and a TD after 2 weeks would be considered about the 10th best fantasy receiver.
I'm not sure what you are insinuating . . . . that he's too low, or too high? If you think he's too low, I moved him down because he gets more attention from Leinart than from Boldin. Last year when Leinart was the starting most the time, Fitz had 1400 yards and 10 scores. . . . the year before when Warner was the guy, those numbers drop to 950 and 6. That's pretty significant, and should be taken into account. Santana Moss has over 200 yards and a TD as well. You think Moss and Fitz are equivalent?
If you think he's too high, explain why.
Criticism is fine . . . but it's a lot easier to pick a few guys you don't like than it is to actually do some research and put your own list together. I think I have good responses to all of your points. Maybe you don't agree with what importance to give to different factors, but I'd love to see your list.
