Who will you avoid in '04?

Moderator: Football Moderators

I'm avoiding Bengals at all costs

Postby The Lung » Wed May 12, 2004 3:08 pm

Looking at SOS analyses, the Bengals have the toughest schedule against the run this season. They also have the toughest schedule against the pass this season, and they are replacing Kitna with a might-as-well-be-a-rookie QB. I'm avoiding the Bengals at all costs.

Which still means, that if by chance Chad or Rudi Johnson are available in the 4th round, I'm still gonna pick them. ;-)

Anyone in a 49er uniform unless Barlow slips to the 4th round. Probably anyone in Oakland or Cleveland. I'm also downgrading Owens since he moved to a new team. Eddie George, but that almost goes without saying. All rookie WRs.

no team should ever be ignored IMO

some of the best fanatsy production comes from grabage yards and scores from poor teams who are getting blown out (at least at qb and wr)

So you're basically saying you wouldn't draft a top 5 TE? Heh, if your top 4 are all gone, are you just gonna go right to #6? Yet instead, you'd consider Kurt Warner if the Giants get him?

To answer a question on a previous page, i think i would rather have Gonzo, Heap, Winslow, Sharpe, then Shockey would be how i rated them. Sharpe and Shockey both have pros and cons (880 yrs old vs. 2 tds each year) so they could be interchangeable as far as I am concerned. That said I have one of the top 3 so I don't need to worry about this sitch much.

That could be a big mistake. KRob is on a pass happy offence is young, fast, and only getting better. Boston's talent alone gives him consideration. How he'll compete for balls with Chambers remains to be seen.

I know what you mean about scars. I had Boston, but the very fact he could produce the monster game always kept me interested in him. Amazingly, I think I would still like to have him on my team this year because of the enourmous potential he has.

Same with KRob in that explosive offence on the west coast there.

It's funny what expectations will do to your perception of reality. Boston finished #18 overall for WRs and K-Rob #25.

That means Boston was a solid #2 and K-Rob a top #3 in 12 team leagues last season. Considering Boston probably was drafted on average as a 12-15 WR, that's not a total loss really. K-Rob was more of a bigger disappointment, but still was salvagable. Much more than say.. Quincy Morgon or Travis Taylor.
