I play Fantasy Football every year, however I'm no expert. There are quite a few experts that have ranked McNabb pretty high, however I'm not so sure why they have him that high. He doesn't really have a good recieving corps.
If you can, I'd trade McNabb for Delhomme. Delhomme has been pretty rocksteady the past couple of years. You know he'll do pretty good this year I since not only does Steve Smith have an opposite reciever to help him out.
I play fantasy football...
As for McNabb that is a hard decision. I still think he is one of the premier qb's and he will still get his numbers. Don't forget this is not about team winning etc. Delhomme would be a good one but it depends if you have to give up much else with McNabb to get him. I would be happy with McNabb on my team
I have been playing fantasy football for fifteen years. I'm old like that. It's that time of year again and I have never seen such a lackluster pool of talent. Having said that, this year will require a lot more management and I will enjoy the season that much more.
I've only started playing Fantasy Football in the last 2 years. I haven't been great at it either and that's probably b/c I've always cared more about college football than pro. We just had our live draft last night, so we'll see how this season turns out. I think I picked a pretty good team.
I am in the same boat as you. I missed my draft over the weekend and also ended up with McNabb. Hopefully he does well this year. I ended up with a terrible team since in our league we use individual defensive players and yahoo doesn't rank defensive players so they basically draft random ones for you so I kind of got screwed there.
I hope you are right TVme and there is more management going on this year, then I'll stand a fighting chance.
first to talk about this mcnabb/delhomme issue. delhomme is coming off an elbow tendon injury from last season. mcnabb has been shaky over the last few seasons so its make or break for him. if delhomme can stay healthy then i'd probably go with him. the 3 games he did play last season he had 8 TDs and 1 INT. pretty good ratio if you ask me haha. also mcnabb doesn't really have any receivers at the moment as they are going down with injuries in the preseason.
im a big fantasy player. i don't go nuts about it like some but i do enjoy playing thats for sure. last year i had a solid team and had taken a risk with All Day (adrian peterson) that paid big. i got the 2nd pick in my draft this year and took him with that pick. the rest of my team is pretty solid i feel as well and look forward to this season
Hard to say, the Panthers are totally revamped, so hard to say how they will do. My #! rule of fantasy football......draft LT!!!!
The Seahawks may have 5-6 running backs this year, but watch out for Duckett, hes gonna get A LOT of goaline runs, and Carlson the rookie tight end will get a lot of catches early on without many other options for Matt. With RB's Jones and Forsett absolutely killing people catching the ball out of the backfield (Justin Forsett is the next Brian Westbrook, just watch, he's an exact replica physically), defenses will be forced to either swing out and cover them or give Carlson the middle and vice versa. Holmgren finally got a running game, and it came with the best hes ever had to throw to. Holmgrens' West Coast FINALLY with a top notch receiving TE and Jim Mora Jr.'s running game he had in Atlanta when they lead the league with almost the same 3 headed approach? Watch out, this hybrid offense is gonna surprise this year.
It's interesting how very little we really know... as the season shakes out I admit I am shocked that the Titans are for real and the Cowboys are not. Fantasy Football - being the animal it is - doesn't care about team win/loss records. Besides the kicker the Titans don't really have a lot of great fantasy value players - but the Cowboys do. I have more than one team and they are fueled by Romo and Rivers - losing QBs, but winners in Fantasy football.
