I don't think anyone said that McAllister wasn't a stud, and I challenge you to find someone that did say that. What some people were suggesting was that Deuce didn't warrant a top 5 pick because of his TD inconsistency last season.


Exactly. Duece's consistency in terms of yards is great. If his TD numbers lifted that to those of Priest, LT, Holmes or Portis then maybe he could be talked about has a top 4 pick.

I make a proposal that we disregard any hyping of or whining about a player from someone who is a fan of that team. I'm tired of seeing posts like this where people complain about "this guy should be ranked higher" or "why's everybody hating on so and so" and what they say makes absolutely no sense because of their obvious bias.

I mean, it is about time the Saints realize the media has been holding them down, get mad, and go out there and win the superbowl like everyone knows they can. Once Deuce sees he's only 5th in all the fantasy mags this summer, hoo boy , look out.

Apparently Priest last year advised everyone to take him first in Fantasy drafts.

I realise he isn't gonna exactly say: "Well i'm probably just outside the top 4, its my age that people should be worried about"

It's still cool though.

Why is everybody down on Deuce??

Because he only had 8 TDs last year. I'd put Priest, LT, Green, Portis, Lewis and Alexander ahead of him.

Some people are even throwing Edge into this lu,ping, but ive got him sitting solid at 9.

I think you'd have a hard time making a case that Green belongs at #8.

Ok. You got me. I mis spoke/typed??. Yes no one is gonna argue Green is the number 8 back. I was more going how each guy has his own positives and negatives, which is why there is so much debate.

I can more see guys swinging up or down two-three spots depending on whose ranking them. Thats what I meant by saying a logjam.

Unless a second-grade teacher makes participating in a fantasy draft a homework assignment, Green will never go as low as 8 in a Fantasy draft.

Green doesn't even fumble any more now that he took off those black armbands.
