Pre-Draft Fantasy Update: Fred Taylor To Split Carries, Arrested [UPDATED] [Jaguars Behaving Badly]

It's stories like this that give the phrase "arrested at 4 a.m. outside a South Beach Club" a bad name. Miami Beach police charged Jacksonville Jaguars running back Fred Taylor with disorderly conduct yesterday outside the awesomely named "Club Cristal". Taylor wasn't jailed, but instead pinky-swore that he would appear in court at a future date. No word yet on whether in doing so, he injured his pinky.

Also unknown are the details surrounding the arrest, as the police department's record division is closed for Labor Day. Apparently they figured if dry cleaners and accountants get the day off, so should they.

In an impressive act of team solidarity, Taylor's former teammate Jimmy Smith was also arrested this weekend for driving under the ol' influence. Police found marijuana roaches and an open beer in his car.

Your move, David Garrard.

Update: It appears that Taylor was not arrested, but merely given a citation. More details if/when they emerge.

I play mostly NFL fantasy football. when i want to make my picks, i don't nec. go for someone elses mock draft. Its best to process stats from your favorite teams making it fun, I have kind of a cheat sheet. Well its an easy wayto see a team's stats for any year and its updated every week. With symbols larger than the #s for a stat, I can process a large amount of info about a team quickly. like if they have had great total offense overall, ill see a lot of black or blue in that column. if not, you see the 'warning' colors yellow, oarnge and red. There are columns for all of
the most important stats like points scored, py ry total o total d for every week and even who they played against that week all the way back to 2003. Its uses statistical amplification and has something to do with the brain being able to process colors and shapes better than numbers. Its really easy to read too. The fantasy football rankings are numbered from 1 to 32. So that you know where the statistic stands in the entire leagus(All 32 football and fantasy football projections).Every team has an article with notes about the team about any injuries with predictions. Tom is a top contender in many free fantasy football leagues. He also seems to know his fantasy football mock draft picks. I have used it for 3 years and now with my neighborhood league. MY doctor started using it last week when he wanted to make his first round picks. I advise drafting a qb and his rb from the same team using those stats. You should make sure not to pick your backup qb and rb from the same team as your starters. Your whole team will be benched in bye week.So check it out, thats one of the sites that have become a great tool for me.
