I'm sick of people using a change of teams to justify saying a player will be better or worse.

Example:

Peerless Price is the main man on Atlanta now so he's going to be really good. They don't really have much else to throw to.

Defenses will be keying on Eric Moulds this year because the Bills don't have Peerless Price anymore so his value goes down.

That's the same argument for one guy to be better and one to be worse. Is it good to be the main STUD on a team or is it good to be balanced? Doesn't it have to be one or the other?

Hines Ward and Plaxico's value goes down because they cancel each other out.

Ladanian Tomlinson will be better because Boston (alliteration) gives the offense another option.

Which is it?

Better to try and rationalize our beliefs than use the old "because I say so" adage our parents used on us when we asked "why"? Or I could just say it's because that's what my Ouija board tells me....

Actually, all of the arguments have merit. A players fantasy values changes as the people around him change. Thats fantasy sports. What we are doing here is giving our opinions on how the changes will affect those players - all the arguments for or against have some measure of credibility to them.

In actuality, there's an equal and opposite arguement for every scenario. So ultimately, I find it comes down to your gut feeling.

Example: Team A's Passing Game is horrible this year.

1. Team A's running game will be better because they have to run!

2. Team A's running game will be worse because defenses will be stacking the line.


Each can be validated over and over.

Just go with your gut. There is no absolute equation. Because if there were, then we'd all know about it by now.

Great topic! ;-D

Kind of like "this player's in a contract year so he'll try harder and post better numbers" vs "this player just signed a contract so he's happy and will post better numbers"... :-?
