Maybe you should take a step back and look at the big picture.

Would you rather have four games of Billups or three games of Williams?  Most sensible people take Billups.

I’m sorry, I guess I’m having a hard time seeing the logic of the argument “these ranking are pathetic”.

If you have both (like I do), you PLAY THEM! I’m pretty sure I don’t care which one is ranked higher than the other.

Besides, I’m sure if I can come up with a 5 games stretch that shows Billups outperforming D-Will.

It’s not like D-Will and Billups are out there on waivers and you have to decide which one to pick up for the week.

If these were pre-draft rankings, your argument *MAY* carry some weight, but these are weekly rankings. A tool to give owners a hint about where their players fall for the week based on their opponents and number of games.

Round 1 of the battle of the PG’s begins tonight.

If I had to pick one or the other, I go with Billups and his 4 game schedule over D-Will.  Even if their weekly totals are close, I’ll still take Billups and the extra FT’s.

I got a shiny new dime on Billups for the week!

Round one to D-Will!  You might be getting that shiny dime afterall.

I have both, so I’m pleased regardless.

I’m in a FIGHT CLUB format (you win a match-up, you take a player) and have CP3 and Nash too, so PG play is NOT a problem.

We’ll call that round 1A (uncontested)

Nice game by Chaucey, big night from the line.

2 on 2 now, but it doesn’t matter to me, CP3 gave me 9 steals tonight! Sick, just plain sick.

And the week goes to….


You could’ve easily been right also. These rankings are a crap shoot sometimes, but I agreed with Billups being ranked higher for his 4 game sked.

Yeah, D-Will could’ve been ranked higher, but it’s a judgment call. Nash was rather pedestrian for the week, so you never really know…

D-Will was solid this week!

My team put up 250 assists this week, even with Billups missing a game.  Yikes!
