I can't believe the complete fallacy of drafting a QB in the first round is ACTUALLY paying off this year! Manning and CPep are putting up more points than most people's starting RB's COMBINED....perhaps we just overlooked the true value of these guys....and assumed 2nd tier guys like McNabb and McNair would perform similarly.....man were we wrong.

Spending those early picks on RB's has REALLY not panned out for us this year...Deuce, Ahman, Portis, J. Lewis, Barlow, Dillon, Henry, DD, Taylor, etc. have all been busts in one way or another for those who drafted em in the 1st few rounds.

O well...what can you do? :-)

You'll probably read it, but here's my theory!

I drafted Culpepper in the 3rd round. :-D I actually drafted K. Barlow ahead of him in the second. :-P

I wish I had played your opponent today! :~(


I wish that guy was in ANY of my money leagues. You never start Brady ahead of Culpepper EVER!!! Unless of course Pepp is on a bye. That is just retarded.

I traded Vick and a 2nd round pick to get Daunte. And to think, I almost didn't make the deal!

It is still risky to draft a QB first round.

Beyond Manning and Culpepper, who else exactly is lighting it up? Brady/Farve are back down, Mcnair/Vick HORRIBLE years, McNabb has never put up good numbers before now, Green is down. I don't know, beyond 2 QBs, most are gambles for 1st round picks.

I'm still not buying it.

Even with Daunte's HUGE week (40pts in my league), I still beat the guy that had him because he was so far behind at the other positions.

Daunte put up 78 pts in my league. The rest of my team scored 107 (With 1 more WR playing on MNF).

First off, that's wrong. McNabb in 2002 put up better numbers each game than every other QB in fantasy football. He just didnt finish at the top due to being injured for the last 6 weeks. In fact, last year, McNabb was considered the concensus #1 QB by most because of how much better than the rest he had been.

And none of these guys should go in the first round. If you're at the end of the 1st round, you can still get either Manning or C-pepp in the 2nd, one of them will drop.
