re: Pelicans Talk FF League (Formerly Hornets Talk) Year 2


Ok, gents, here they are. None of these teams are really that far apart at this point, so it's very hard for even myself to put a lot of stock in these rankings at this point. Someone at 8 or 9 could easily be 3 or 4 after a week or two in to the season.

So without further adieu:

DCB's Very Unofficial and Very Subject to Change, Post-Draft Power Rankings:

1.) MWG
Foster could be a steal at 7. I love Sproles, Welker, Austin, and Witten in PPR. Richardson adds great depth on the bench. Not much weakness here.

2.) TTT
Stacked 1, 2, 3 at RB. Reggie is going to be a beast. If Garcon is healthy, he could end up starting here. Not crazy about Colston at WR1. This team's fate will lie on Kaep's ability to pick up where he left off.

3.) Coach D
I love Spiller, especially getting FJax to handcuff. Fitz will go back to elite with Palmer. Hillman is great value and I'm a big fan of Broyles. Not crazy about Wallace as a WR2.

4.) 31
AP is the obvious star here, but the D Thomas/Julio combo is sick. If Lacy takes hold of the job in GB he could be great value. Montee Ball sitting on the bench is also great value while you wait for him to take over.

5.) DCBJR6
Love getting Stafford. Big fan of McCoy in Chip Kelley's offense. Dez/Roddy will be a very good WR combo. Miller looks a little shakier than a week ago, but thankfully this team is deep with Mathews and Ivory as RB3 and RB4.

6.) TN09
Brady will still be Brady and is already making unknowns better. Love the Lynch/MJD combo. Finley needs to step up. Not crazy about Boldin in the flex.

7.) CQQ
The best part here is the combo of Calvin/Cobb. I like Ridley, but with the Bell injury, RB has become weak. Thankfully you have Gio and BJGE together. Big fan of TY. Sudfeld looks like a pretty good replacement till Gronk comes back.

8.) Drake
The big question is, was Wilson's rookie season a fluke? I'm thinking more and more that it wasn't. RB is stacked with Charles/CJ/Wilson, but Nicks is a shaky WR1 and Jennings is an even shakier WR2. Cameron is a very good sleeper. Love this teams WR depth on bench, with one probably starting over Jennings.

9.) Lobos
Got to pray RG3 stays healthy with Bradford as the backup. Martin/Murray/Bradshaw make a pretty good RB core. Love AJ Green and Andre Johnson at WR. Williams and Jeffrey are nice sleepers on the bench.

10.) Fear
This team is one that can easily jump up if healthy. Amendola and Nelson can make a great WR core, along with Marshall if they stay on the field. Peyton will have to carry this team with Andre Brown being their RB2. I like Ballard and Floyd on the bench, but this squad needs RB help.

11.) Capn
Love Forte and Vereen should be good, but would rather him as a RB3. VJax is a solid WR1. It remains to be seen whether the loss of other pass catchers will help Torrey Smith or hurt him. Jimmy Graham is a freak and can't be stopped. Austin is a below average flex, but with Jonathan Stewart's injury, DeAngelo could take over that flex spot pretty soon.

12.) Darryl
This team led by Drew could be much better than what I think, but it's full of players I dislike. I'd prefer Wayne as a WR2 and DeSean as a flex. I'm waiting for the season that Gore breaks down or starts losing carries. Stevie looks pretty banged up. Gates played 15 games last year with SD having next to no one else to throw to and still couldn't produce.

Andre Brown is your RB2 and Nelson is recovering from surgery he had two weeks ago!

It's very possible. Like I said, you could just as easily be top 3 within a few weeks. Doing rankings this early are very finicky. I knew I wouldn't please everyone.

Thanks. I think a lot of people are assuming that Boldin will automatically step in and do what Crabtree did with Kaep. Boldin is a good bit older and has only had a few months to develop chemistry. He may be pretty good, but I'd rather see it first.

The projections aren't taking in to account that some rosters don't have defenses or kickers yet. That's 10-20 points every week.

Of course they love your team, they drafted you the top defense!

Seriously, though, I think you are a RB away from being top 5.

Lobos, looking back at your team, I think I only had you lower because of RG3's uncertainty and Bradford as your backup. The rest of your starters look pretty good.

Bradford will be much better this year, but I wouldn't be comfortable with him as my backup behind RG3.

Don't worry, you and Lobos can make fun of my fantasy basketball team in two months!
