I would love to be in the league where Brady was taken as the 3rd overrall QB. I don't know how long it would be until the laughter stopped. If fantasy points were awarded for winning then Brady would be the man right now...but we all know they are not. In my leagues scoring system last year Brady was the 12th best QB...I look for about the same results this year.
Brady will never be worthy of a #3 or even a top ten position. He doesn't have the ego for it, and if Dillon can give him a run game that will take away from his pass game. They would much prefer to run instead of pass, and Brady is the ultimate in QBs: he doesn't care about anything but the Ws. Brooks also is a sleeper to be a top 5 QB. If Stallworth can avoid injury, I know that's a stretch, the Saints should score tons and much of it will be through the air. I don't know about Bledsoe, he looked scared and pathetic too much last year for me to think he can shake it off. He does have a great offensive mind in coach Malarky, so...
Also any Buc player is at risk of flopping simply because Chucky's ego has destoryed that team. Johnson may put up some numbers simply because the Bucs may need to play catch up a lot, but INTs are going to be a problem.
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

On the Johnson topic, it's no big secret that Chucky doesn't like him that much. He tried and failed to get Garcia which speaks volumes. I've also heard that Chucky may throw Simms in sooner than later after a good offseason.
I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth. That's just me.
I'm sorry but this look mostly like pulling numbers out of a hat. McNabb at 13 and Brady/Vick 3/4. Except that in the pst 3 years, McNabb's point per game average has been above both each year. It's not being overrated when the numbers back prove whose a better fantasy QB.
The rankings look pretty good to me but, Bulger deserves to be higher. With Holt and Faulk he could have a huge year, I said could, and Pennington is way to high in my book. I will agree with my colleagues on the point that Brady is way to high on your list.
Culpepper, Manning, Vick, Brooks, Bulger, Hasselbeck, Favre, and McNabb, are the top QB's right now....
Wheres the love for aaron? i think he could have a better year than McNair. With stallworth healthy and just based on the fact that he has been getting better every year, especially in improving his TD to INT ratio., TOP 10 in my opinion
and take mark brunell off that list and throw up my boy joey harrington.

Putting Brady in the top three would be dead on if this was real football, where winning matters. However, in fantasy land, overrated losers like Aaron Brooks will put up better stats. It almost makes me sick to pick a retard like Brooks over Brady, but until FF somehow takes into account intangibles, this is what we are left with.
