Fantasy Football Forecast of Former Tigers

The July 31 edition of ESPN The Magazine ranks the top 100 fantasy football players for the upcoming NFL season and three former Tigers make the list.

14. Domanick Davis, RB, Houston, "He's no Bush ..."

52. Joseph Addai, RB, Indianapolis, "Savvy rookie is perfect fit ..."

67. Eddie Kennison, WR, Kansas City, "... he's got one more good year left in his bones." Ouch!

Making the list as the 50th best receiver, again this is just for fantasy football purposes, Michael Clayton of Tampa Bay. Clayton's ranking might have to do with his inability to take it to the house last season (zero touchdowns). However, LaBrandon Toefield (4 TDs), Devery Henderson (3), Josh Reed (2), and Eric Edwards all did cross the goal line, but are all unranked.

Non-LSU names of note include former Arkansas QB/current Jacksonville Jaguar receiver Matt Jones as the 81st ranked player overall, one spot ahead of former Louisiana Tech/current Philadelphia Eagles running back Ryan Moats. Teurlings Catholic High School's own Jake Delhomme is the 69th ranked fantasy football player.

The New Orleans Saints have four players listed in the Top 100, not surprisingly led by rookie Reggie Bush (No. 23), Deuce McAllister (No. 51), Donte' Stallworth (No. 83) and Joe Horn (No. 97). And, no, Drew Brees does not make the list. What's worse, Aaron Brooks is listed five places ahead of Brees among NFL quarterbacks.

Go Saints!
