Hindsight is 20/20 folks and I’ll admit, I was wrong on several accounts. Below are updated power rankings done by both total points scored after week 2 and my personal, horribly biased ‘projected’ power rankings.
Additionally, here is my take on each individual team.
With the best QB duo in the league, we all knew this was going to be a playoff-contending team. What we didn’t expect was McFadden to be a serviceable running back. Nice foresight, Nick. You really jumped on the Nate high-horse-led bandwagon on that pick and it’s really paying off.
Unfortunately for Nick, Ahmad is now almost worthless and Nick doesn’t have a staple of usable running backs like some teams (see: @MatthewBarrier… want to make a trade?). And because of his lack of RB depth, I dropped Nick to 3rd in my personal power rankings (PPR).
[Insert “I was wrong” clip in the voice of either Nate or TMR here]
Things I did not see coming:
1) Vick being a top QB
2) DeAngelo Williams being serviceable
3) Knowshon Moreno being a top 10 RB.
Tom had some serious RB questions and looks like he’s solved them, at least until the byes. The rest of his team is full of studs and as a result, he has vaulted up the actual power rankings and PPR. Nice work Tom.
The only bad news on his team is that Eddie is concussed. And in the great words of Stephania, “there’s no such thing as a ‘minor’ concussion.” There is, however, the Jahvid Best and Austin Collie variety of concussion. For your (and Eddie’s) sake, let’s hope it’s not that severe. (more…)
