Franchise Fan wrote:hate to say it, and maybe i dont mean it.... But im going out on a limb, and not targeting Ahman green at all. I dont see the packers having a good season and that should have an impact on greens fantasy numbers... By all means he is a great running back, but i dont see the Packers doing anything well this year and that hurts ahmans value.


As much as I hate to disagree with a cowboys fan, in this case I've got to. I think the Packers are going to the playoffs ad Ahman is going to take them there. They've got a great line and nothing has changed from last year. He's #1 on my charts and will easily be a top 5 back. He's the safest pick out there. He doesn't have as high a ceiling as Priest or LT2 do but he's safer than both.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

I hate to say this but I have a bad feeling on Clinton Portis. The switch to Washington is not going to help at all. He lost his O line in Denver, and Wash O line doesn't look that good this year. Im not saying that I wouldn't draft him but he is a scary pick.

The thing about Portis that scares me the most is the change in divisions more than anything. He doesn't have those cream puff defences to play anymore. Dallas, Philly and the giants are much more imposing. And losing the denver system doesn't help either. I'm going against what most people think and am staying away from LT2 and Portis. Unless of course they fall to the end of the 1st, something I doubt will happen in any of my leagues.

I am bumping this topic because I like to take a look at the past, see who is really smart around here. I just want to say that this forum had some good calls about staying away from Shockey, and barlow, and for at this moment portis. I also want to show that I called the packers demise way before the season started.... And that over 4 of you flat out called me on it and guarenteed the packers a playoff team! Heres to basking in glory for correct predictions.

Umm, Shockey has done fine to well. I'd say he has performed at least up to his 8th-round average draft position.
