A little good a little bad last night in sports. The Bad: Had the Over 7 in the Cubs/Indians game and wouldn't you know it, Arietta for the first time in about a month, pitches his tail off and Cleveland could hardly score. Final score 5 to 1 Cubs...Argg. The Good: I get back on track with my second teaser play this early NBA season and get the win. Teaser record now 1 - 1. Congrats to winners and back later with some plays for tonight.
There will be many more 2011 Fantasy Football Rankings and features in the late spring and summer, including tons of 2011 Fantasy Football Mock Drafts, Player Rankings, Sleepers and Busts. I'll also have an extensive 2011 NFL Fantasy Football Preseason Stock Report. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.
2011 Fantasy Football - Draft Stock Down: May 6, 2011.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, Patriots
Bill Belichick spent two Day 2 selections on running backs in the 2011 NFL Draft, so that's all you need to know in terms of his confidence in BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
Chris Wells, RB, Cardinals
This is an obvious one. The Cardinals spent the No. 38 selection in the 2011 NFL Draft on Ryan Williams, a talented running back out of Virginia Tech. Ken Whisenhunt appears as though he wants to move on from the disappointing Chris Wells.
Anquan Boldin, WR, Ravens
I think Anquan Boldin is done, and given that the Ravens spent two picks in the first four rounds on receivers, they apparently agree. Boldin is ranked between 125-130 in my 2011 Fantasy Football Top 150 Rankings, but he could be completely off the board depending on what happens in the preseason.
Kenny Britt, WR, Titans
The Titans spent the No. 8 pick on Jake Locker, so they'll be obligated to start him as a rookie. That's not good for Kenny Britt.
Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice, WR, Vikings
Two more receivers hurt by a rookie quarterback. Sidney Rice may not be back with the Vikings, but I'm listing him here just in case.
Santana Moss, WR, Redskins
The Redskins drafted three receivers, which indicates that Santana Moss may not be back. We'll see where he goes, but non-elite wideouts who change teams in the middle of their career usually struggle. See an example from last year: Boldin, Anquan.
Jerome Simpson, WR, Bengals
Jerome Simpson showed great rapport with Carson Palmer at the end of the year. Unfortunately for Simpson, it doesn't look like Palmer is coming back in the wake of the Andy Dalton pick. Even if Dalton and Simpson work well together, it's going to take some time for Simpson to be productive while Dalton goes through his growing pains.
