    What's interesting is Aaron Rodgers is ranked 17th. Tarvaris Jackson and Wrecks Grossman are way down there. So it's not just us delusional green and gold wearing Packer fans that put Rodgers ahead of Jackson and Grossman.

    One "expert" put Adrian Peterson as the best RB in the game, but the others said he's #2 after LT.

    Greg Jennings up at 18 too, i would hate to be these guys when he finds out that they didnt put him at #1.

    Yeah I have started looking at fantasy too. Aaron is a definite sleeper in most leagues.

    I would take Jennings over alot of those guys. Don't count out Driver. Every year someone takes him late and ends up with a nice pick.

    These are fantasy projections, not actual rankings of the players.

    Wanna laugh more? Look at the Madden ratings.

    Being ranked 11th when he didn't even play a whole season is pretty good. Hopefully, for us, he moves himself WAY up the list with his actions on the field this year.

    Adrian Peterson is good but first in the league? Let's be real here.

    I'd like to say that one should see more than a single season before moving Peterson up that high on the list. But then, you could say the same thing about Grant... at least they're consistent.

    Speaking of the Madden ratings, has anyone seen Hester's stats? He is the only person in history to receive a 100 speed.

    These are fantasy predictions. There's a decent chance AP leads the NFL in yards and/or rushing TDs in '08. I think a lot of it depends on whether or not the Vikings can keep the game close and not have to rely on the passing game so much. If the Vikings can, expect great things from AP.

    I'm pretty sure that Hester was only 99 last year.

    Edit: I saw that you were right. Sorry :oops:

    I expect Aaron to put up decent fantasy numbers. I'm thinking 3200+ yards, 20+ TDs, but only 10 INTs. A definite sleeper.

    Link #2, in case you couldn't find it on the previous page



    The excel sheet is archaic, but it's somethin.
