Why NFL Fantasy Guide?

WE ARE SORRY: Due to the overwhelming time it takes to keep up with Fantasy Stats, I am no longer creating up to date draft lists and such on this blog.

However, I would like to remind you that the articles are for the most part still good advice to keep to heart when playing Fantasy Football.

NFL Fantasy Guide

Often in the preseason, there are questions about players. Injuries, position battles and anything that might effect the Fantasy Football Player Rankings. Here I will address some of them.

Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Players

Quarterback - Donovan McNabb - (Position Rank - 6)
(Passing) 3,500 Yards, 21 TD, 10 IT, 28 Sacks
(Rushing) 150 Yards, 1 TD, 5 Fumbles
McNabb's only down fall is his health. If he stays healthy, he is a great quarterback for fantasy football. For the last two seasons, he has stayed virtually healthy, but unfortunately he does not run as much as he once did.

Quarterback - Michael Vick - (Position Rank - 11)
(Passing) 600 Yards, 4 TD, 2 IT, 4 Sacks
(Rushing) 800 Yards, 5 TD, 2 Fumbles
(Receiving) 35 Catches, 400 Yards, 2 TD
I will admit right from the start. I may be jumping the gun quite a bit here. To me it is obvious that Philadelphia signed Vick to use him in the Wildcat offense. I see Vick as becoming the modern version of Slash. Remember Kordell Stewart before he got stupid and became only a quarterback? Vick will throw passes, run with the ball and catch the ball. I do not believe that the Eagles signed him, risking a fall out with the fans and media to use him as a decoy or ride the bench. They will play him and they will utilze his speed.

The problem is that you wont get him for the first 6 weeks of the season. Draft the rest of your starters first then take him to ride your bench until he can play.

Running Back - Brian Westbrook - (Position Rank - 11)

(Rushing) 1,100 Yards, 9 TD, 1 Fumbles
(Receiving) 60 Catches, 450 Yards, 4 TD
When healthy, Westbrook is one of the best running backs in the game. The good news is he has not missed more than two games in a season in a while. The bad is that he is recovering from an ankle injury. The good is that he expects to be ready for the opener.

Wide Receiver - DeSean Jackson - (Position Rank - 35)
(Receiving) 75 Catches, 1,050 Yards, 4 TD, 2 Fumbles
As a rookie, he had 62 catches for 912 yards. I expect him to lift his game a little but not by a lot in his second season.

Wide Receiver - Kevin Curtis - (Position Rank - 42)
(Receiving) 65 Catches, 850 Yards, 5 TD, 0 Fumbles
Okay, I will admit it. He should be ranked a littler worse. I am playing a hunch here.

Wide Receiver - Jeramy Maclin - (Position Rank - 81)
(Receiving) NA
Philadelphia has a habit of spreading the ball around. Westbrook will get it a lot and now Vick will too I think. Being the third receiver and a rookie, Maclin is not in position to have a big year.

Tight End - Brent Celek - (Position Rank - 12)
(Receiving) 55 Catches, 570 Yards, 4 TD, 0 Fumbles
Celek is a late round flier. Nothing more unless your league demands two tight ends.
