No, I said Jennings and either Bush or Mathews not both Bush and Mathews.
But on a more serious note. PPR rankings ? Seriously ?? You are going by somebody's so-called projected analysis numbers and where they are supposedly suppose to rank this year and not their real past history ?
Here is just small micro-example of how wrong and inaccurate a lot of these so-called projected analysis/value rankings(magazines/so-called expersts) can be. Remember the big Darren McFadden craze just recently when everyone and their brother said THIS was his breakout year and he would just absolutely TEAR IT UP ?? Almost every ranking had him top 5 RB if not higher that year. What happened ? McFadden got injured. They are to some degree doing this to Bush this year and they(so-called experts) have always had a 'woody' for Mathews as well waiting for his so called break out year. Won't happen for either one of these guys because their 'real history' say's INJURY PRONE to the point of not drafting from my perspective. Jennings has been VERY injury prone in the last 3yrs and is in the latter stages of his career while Ponder is throwing to him. The so-called experts do this every year by PIMPING UP a select few so-called BIG NAMES that have NEVER produced big fantasy numbers 'consistently' in their careers due to their 'consistent injuries' every year. Jennings,Mathews and Bush are walking injuries !!!
Honestly DO YOUR OWN RANKINGS/RESEARCH based on REAL HISTORICAL EVIDENCE FIRST and then your fantasy draft and play will improve.
Here's a tip. Never fall in love with the BIG NAME alone. The consistent production and very little injury history MUST BE PRESENT to warrant a draft pick IMO.
If you do risk it better be in the very late rounds. A lot of the times the BIG NAME does match up with the consistent BIG PLAY and a lot of the times the BIG NAME is just that and no more. The wise analyst can see the difference.
Nothing personal here just trying to help BUT I think you are 'that guy' that automatically loves the BIG NAME without looking at the 'real evidence'.
