Edit: as for "that was your bad"--- give me a break dude, how petty are you?
I'm sure you're easily flabbergasted "dude". The "point" is you don't criticize other when you don't have the facts. You totally generalized, assuming everybody used your scoring system, which somehow made P Manning 8 points/gm better than E Manning. You believe that your scoring system is somehow universal which is ludicrous. And using that incorrect assumption you personally attacked me, telling me to get my facts straight. I'll tell you what "dude" if you can explain to me how you stating P Manning is 8 pts/gm better than E Manning, using your league as a reference, and me stating P Manning is 3pts/gm better than E Manning using my league as a reference are in any way fundamentally different, I will concede, and leave this thread. The only real difference between the two, is that you chose to make it personal. Sorry I hurt your tender feelings.
LOL. Yeah, MY feelings are the ones that are tender. HILARIOUS. Let any objective observer read this thread and arrive at that conclusion...
How's this "dude"?
You are right. You never made any "factual" statement that was incorrect. Are you happy? Is that going to keep you from pacing around your room fuming over somebody who has the unmitigated gaul to make such an egregious personal attack as telling you: "You need to get your facts straight."
You know what. You're right. That is about the worst thing I can imagine someone saying to someone else.
Look at my first post. I mentioned that I thought you were misreading the stats. That's what my hypothesis was. That's what my comment was based on.
Whether or not your facts were straight, your statistics are misleading if you are drawing them from a strange scoring system that has little bearing on the rest of the people reading this thread.
That aside, just lighten up "dude" (Don't know why we're putting it in quotes now). I wasn't trying to declare war on you.
Why don't we just sub. Kyle Orton for Eli in the original post then it makes sense to me. In NFL.com scoring no PPC, 6pts per TD, 1pt for each 25 yrds passing, 1 pt for 10 yrds running, -2 pts for every turnover. Peyton has 170 pts for the yr. Orton has 167 for the yr. Peyton went late round 1 to early round 2 in most drafts. Orton def. went much later. Also I see nothing wrong with anyone taking Peyton he is one of the safest early picks IMO!
PS a big thank you to all who hyped Foster this yr. I took him in round 5 and have been smiling ever since.
First the Shock, then the Pistons can the Lions be next?
Well maybe next yr.
PS I didn't lose a paper bag challenge but somehow as a Lion's fan it just feels right.
Going by 2010 PPG averages & guys who are healthy enough to theoretically contribute from here to the end of the season, non PPR...
Hypothetical 3 rounds... I excluded guys that have "inflated stats" - Forte/Best (huge games coupled w/ total garbage), have been hurt for the last several weeks (Floyd), or who have no "real" real chance of being drafted ahead of "name" guys (Fitzpatrick)
An extremely strong case can be made for Gates to be the single most valuable player in fantasy this year - he is producing top tier WR1 numbers from the TE slot on a weekly basis - last weeks DNP & the 1 stinker he has thrown out - he's averaging over 17 PPG, only being outpaced in PPG (non QB) by 3 RB.
Team 1 - Foster, Rodgers, AJ Team 2 - AP, MJD, Peyton Team 3 - McFadden, Rice, LT Team 4 - Hillis, SJax, Maclin Team 5 - Gore, DJax, Wayne Team 6 - CJ, Megatron, Moreno Team 7 - Mendenhall, Rivers, Benson Team 8 - Owens, Turner, Bowe Team 9 - Gates, Vick, Boldin Team 10 - Nicks, White, Harvin Team 11 - McCoy, Charles, Jennings Team 12 - Bradshaw, Lloyd, Williams (TB)
Not saying that this is how a draft would look today, but by the numbers, it's probably how the draft should look today.
Kate Upton's Husband - dead Mr. Blonde - champ Yo Soy Fiesta - dead Old South - champ Full of Fanta Tonight - champ Sex Panther (SB) - dead Sex Panther (FF) - dead Sex Panther (IBL) - dead Sex Panther (Dynasty) dead

You might want to fit Steve Johnson and Tamme onto the list. Barring injury, they will be there at the end of the year.
Is Tamme really worth much outside of a dynasty/keeper though? I mean, Clark will be back next season, and you can't imagine the Colts unloading a young guy with such potential like Tamme, especially with him under contract another year.

If I was drafting for the remainder of the season, my list would go something like this
1. Chris Johnson 2. Arian Foster 3. Adrian Peterson 4. Frank Gore 5. Jamaal Charles 6. Maurice Jones-Drew 7. Rashard Mendenhall 8. Ray Rice 9. Hakeem Nicks 10. Roddy White 11. Calvin Johnson 12. Ahmad Bradshaw 13. LeSean McCoy 14. Brandon Lloyd 15. Darren McFadden
edit**: after making this list, i've realized i have to go try to trade for ahmad bradshaw!
My QBs, in order would be Rivers Peyton Brees Vick Rodgers Orton Eli and Rivers wouldn't be off the board till after Calvin Johnson.
QB Orton/Flacco WR Calvin WR Nicks WR Crabtree/Dez/MW RB Rice RB Charles TE Finley/Zach Miller/Hernandez W/R McCoy W/R Blount/BJGE

Tamme's value is for the rest of this year. Next year, Indy will have to figure out what to do with him.
Matt, good luck on getting Bradshaw. I have him in both leagues and he is almost untradeable. I'd want so much no other team would agree.
