Why is everyone so down on this guy? Wouldn't you think teams will be focusing more on TO as the year rolls on, leaving other WR's in one on one situations? Any opinions?

If you'd spent 3 years watching him play, you'd understand why people are down on him. However, with TO in the mix, I think Pinkston becomes a situational starter. Not any better in fantasy than a Colbert, or Keyshawn. He'll have a few 60+ yard and 1 TD games, but he's going to be about as consistent as a TE picked up off WW.

I picked him up off WW. Lining up on other side of TO has to get some looks for him. He is under the radar.

I agree and am hoping for another decent day from Pinkston

Ive watched this guy for years. To be honest, I do not think that he is a nfl-caliber player. He is weak, and therefore he is a subpar blocker, and he gets pushed off the line by any corner in the league. If I was a def. coordinator, I would have my corners play a bump on him in nearly every situation. That being said, he sadly could be worth a pick up with all the favorable matchups he could see.

he's not only weak, but he doesn't have great hands either. Or field presence.

do not play him.

I don't think it is entirely accurate to jsut bump him everytime. Because he is fast and tall, and will occasioanlly come down with a bomb, which is why I guess he is still around.

but he is a wimp too. I wouldn't pick him up.

Everyone is right. This guy is bad. Barely ever holds onto the ball.

The fact that you've now got Eagles fans and Cowboy fans in agreement should signal one of 2 things to you:

a) The apocalypse is coming.
or
b) Pinkston is lucky to have a job at all.

I was expecting/hoping that Freddie Mitchell would have taken the #2 by this point in the season. Can any Philly fans enlighten me to why he's still the #3 man?
