Alot of people (Fantasy Football Wise) tend to draft players who are in their contract year, expecting them to blow up. Here are some people in their contract year's what do you think, blow up or no?

Matt Hasselbeck

Shaun Alexander

Edgerrin James

Rudi Johnson

Bryan Westbrook

Correll Buckhalter

Eddie George

LaMont Jordan

Emmitt Smith

Anthony Thomas

Marvin Harrison

Plaxico Burress

Alge Crumpler

Bubba Franks

Mike Vanderjagt

- Rudi would probably take less pay to stay in Cincy, Marvin and MAYBE Edge might. So that's their motivation, but besides that I think Harrison, Alexander, and Vanderjagt definitely can't blow up. 2004 actually works against those Colts, since Marvin's older and Vanderjagt, in a nutshell, can only lose regard.
- Burress wants the money, but that doesn't mean he'll blow up.
- Buckhalter will have 0 snaps this year.
- George and Smith could easily retire.
- Crumpler, Franks, and Jordan are good ones.

Just to get my thought out, for my benefit.

Vanderjagt is already a consistent kicker and had a golden season last year. He'll get the biggest kicker contract ever if he picks the right team. We could ask him for 37/37 again, 38/38+, whatever. But we could ask Priest Holmes to get 2300 yards and 30-35 TDs while he's at it. He thinks that he can, but still. Vanderjagt is already a consistent guy and fresh off the best kicking season ever. Unless he punts (like Yale, while he's at it) and goes Ray Lewis on KRs, he's probably at his max value. Who knows, maybe he actually could be divine and hit every one again, at a great quantoty for however many dozens in a row.

Well I thought last year was a blow out year for him and I think he'll repeat it.

Shaun Alexander
No.

Edgerrin James
Not really blow out, but better.

Rudi Johnson
See James.

Bryan Westbrook
Yes.

Correll Buckhalter
He's out for the season...

Eddie George
No.

LaMont Jordan
No idea what's been up with him, maybe he can't get into a rhythm splitting carries, so no.

Emmitt Smith
No.

Anthony Thomas
Not with Jones in front of him.

Marvin Harrison
Regular year for him..."blow out" for most WR's.

Plaxico Burress[/QUOTE
Yes, he really wants that contract.

Alge Crumpler
I've been calling his explosion for 3 years now...so I'll stick to my guns and say yes.

Bubba Franks[/QUOTE
No. Will never get the separation for a blowout year (in terms of yards).

Mike Vanderjagt
I don't see him being better than last year...

Not gonna get enough carries and is suspicious of his ability to be more than a change of pace.

Eddie George
no

LaMont Jordan
no

Emmitt Smith
no
Anthony Thomas

Plaxico Burress
