This list goes on and on
We did a big thing on this question in the last debate. I came to the conclusion that certain tandems you don't want simply because they are too costly to your team's strength with respect to where you have to draft them to get them. I'll re-rank these with considering BOTH how much they can help your team AND how costly they are to draft.
(10 team draft)
1. Penny/Moss - Moss usually goes in the late 3rd/early 4th, Penny 6th or 7th. Could have a huge year.
2. Hass/DJax - both probably go no later than 5th round but probably not earlier than 4th either. These guys are solid.
3. Favre/Walker - Walker has been going in the 5th and Favre goes usually not earlier than the 7th. Huge value here with Favre, as he led the league in TD passes last year. Walker is everyone's 1st "3rd year breakout" pick.
4. Brooks/Horn - this combo is 4th simply because Brooks can be obtained so late if you tab him as your starter, 9th round I'm guessing. Horn's a 4th Rd WR.
5. McNabb/Owens - these guys can potentially be really good and having an early 3rd Rd WR with a 4th Rd qb isn't that damaging if you used your 1st to picks to obtain backs.
6. Bulger/Holt - Holt's a top notch receiver who's worth a 2nd round pick and Bulger can be had in the late 5th, early 6th round. These 2 should hook up quite often.
7. McNair/Mason - these guys both seem to average going around late 4th round. Not bad but you don't get 2 4th round picks and chances they may not be around in the 5th, which means you'd have to take one in the 3rd. Too costly.
8. Culpepper/Moss - to BE SURE to get these guys you have to spend a 1st and 2nd round pick. You probably won't be able to find 2 RBs to make up for not taking any in the 1st 2 rounds.
9. Manning/Harrison - see Culpepper/Moss argument.
10. Vick/Price - the thing that screws up this combo is that Vick goes crazy early AND Price hasn't proven he can be a no 1 WR. Very risky combo.
