    Due to the current "Branch Situation", I thought it might be interesting to see where he ranks on most FF draft lists.

    I know FF isn't a good real world evaluation of a player's value, but it's a nice little non-scientific barometer.

    I checked about 7 major FF draft sites, and on average Branck is ranked as the 12th best receiver available. His highest rank was 11th and lowest was 14th.

    I don't take too much stock in fantasy football, but it does show Branch's production is not in the top 10 WRs in the league although it is certainly in the top 20. Why is 6.3M per year considered so insulting offer that he won't even bother negotiating? That's what I don't get.

    FWIW, I got The Sporting News' Scouting Guide today, it ranks and scouts every NFL player. Real football not fantasy. They have Branch as the #20 overall WR.
