Remember Chester Taylor last Draft Day

At 1pm eastern on Saturday, April 28th 2007, Viking RB Chester Taylor was a strong fantasy option and a solid keeper league back. By 3pm that day, he wasn’t very attractive for 2007 and even less attractive for the long-term, and you know why.

We always focus on the players who are selected in the NFL draft, but as important are the players already on NFL rosters; sometimes incumbent starters are greatly affected by their team’s additions.
