I figured I’d pop in here to post up some of the ranking updates we did this morning. I know people are drafting this weekend, so we’re trying to literally be up to the minute with our rankings. Our fun and learning never ends…here’s what we did today (first Barney reference ever on the site, by the way):
Marshawn Lynch tumbled a couple of spots behind a pair of proven and reliable veterans in Deuce McAllister and Thomas Jones. Lynch has been up-and-down. He’s shown flashes for sure, but he’s also shown signs that he’s not a special back. This is not Adrian Peterson. He’s a shaky #2 fantasy back at this point, but you might be able to get away with him as your #2 if you have a great team around him. Lee Evans jumped over Donald Driver to the #13 spot at WR. This is because of yet another big game on Friday night and due to Driver’s foot issue. Driver should be ready for Week One, but that is not a lock just yet. Bo Scaife has moved into the #12 position at TE. After scoring a TD last night and dropping another potential score, we’re ready to sign off on Scaife as a starting fantasy TE in a 12-team league, as amazing as that sounds. This guy is going to produce.
Ronald Curry moved up a few spots since it appears he clicks well with QB Daunte Culpepper. Speaking of Culpepper, he moved up another spot today. It looks like he’s going to be the guy. We gave a few more fantasy points to RBs LaMont Jordan and LenDale White, but it did not affect their rankings.
