Larry Fitzgerald in the 3rd Round?
Graduate from Kindergarten, quit the league and join a real one.
You asked for a grade and that's an honest assessment.
It's a 10 team with people who I was in a fraternity with, and 1 or 2 added on people. I'd say there's only 1 person in the league who I'd qualify as a non-hardcore football fan. We've all been playing together for about 5 years, this the first year we decided to carry keepers from the previous year.
Fitzgerald fell to the third because:
1. Most people lost Round 1 & 2 picks for keeper reasons.
2. Most of the top backs were kept as keepers, leading to an early run on the available rushers (Gore, Mathews, Green, Best) to fill out the rosters of teams that didn't have keeper-worthy RBs.
3. The guy who had Fitzgerald last year elected to keep Jones-Drew and Rivers instead.
4. (speculating) Concerns that he'll have a tough time w/ Derek Anderson at QB and the potential for a rookie (Hall) taking over midseason.
