WR Value Going Up?

Postby bstreet915 » Tue Aug 17, 2004 9:43 pm

Given refs are calling defensive pass interference more closely, will we see significantly more scoring out of WR to the point they may be more valuable than RB's?

no, they are still going up against the same NFL players.... overall we might see something like a 3% increase in overall WR production, but if anything that makes having running backs more important because there will be more WRs to choose from.

Remember, positional scarcity. Nothing has changed in that respect.

Personally I think you will see more scoring from the lesser WR, making WR a bit deeper. RBs will still be more valuable.

Exactly right, Paladyr. Keep in mind that kickers finish in the top 10 in fantasy scoring every year. It doesn't make them more valuable.

Drafting is ALL about value ;-D

Randy Moss 20+ TD's?

Postby bstreet915 » Tue Aug 17, 2004 9:55 pm

If you knew Randy would score 20 + td's this year, where would he most likely be takenin the draft?

That would make him a top 5 pick IMO. But... what does this have to do with anything?

somewhere at the end of the 1st round...there are still too many wr's out there to take any of them any earlier - if then. I took McAllister and Barlow in my first two rounds and still got Chad Johnson, Darren Jackson, Andre Johnson and Charles Rogers...along with Pennington at qb. Don't draft a wr until the 3rd round!!!

Wrong. Harrison, Owens, and Holt are all good alternatives to questionable 2nd round backs such as D Davis, Rudi Johnson, and Stephen Davis.

I agree. Harrison and Holt I definitely take in the 2nd if it's to my liking, Owens very infrequently. But you can easily justify taking certain WRs in the 2nd.

No, still on the whole WR would be nowhere NEAR as valuable as RB's. Sure if you know Moss is getting 20 sure that moves him up into the elite overall status, but he is close to that anyways so it not all that big of a jump. There are STILL 4 or 5 RBs that can reasonably be expected to get 20. Its simply a numbers game. Like closers in baseball, there is only one (at most) featured RB per NFL team. Like closers in baseball the only exeption is RBBC situations which are even worse cause then you have to guess who the featured Back will be. Meanwhile each team has at least 2 Wr on the field at any given time.

just my opinion,
