Clayton's value with Bucs receivers returning?

Postby andus » Fri Nov 05, 2004 5:00 pm

Looks like both Jurevicious and Galloway might be returning this week. Is this going to decrease Clayton's looks or free him up in coverage?

Jurevicious has been in-and-out b/c of injuries the past yar or so, & Galloway is no spring chicken coming back from a severe hammy injury. Need to see if they can stay healthy first. I for one would not worry about Clayton's production/targets going down appreciably.

I think these guys coming back and playing is going to do nothing but bolster Clayton's value. Perhaps now defenses will have to cover someone else besides the elusive Tim Brown.

J2thez929, I disagree. I think Clayton has established himself as the go to WR in their offense. Other WR's that are returning will only open things up a bit. Griese has had success throwing to Clayton, I don't think he will stop now. I like Clayton to put up strong stats the rest of the way.

Clayton's established himself as the No. 1 receiver. Jurevicius is questionable and Galloway isn't going to be completely healthy. Griese seems to like Clayton too. His value should remain consistent.

Obviously it will have an effect on his playing time...

Nov 4 Buccaneers' wide receiver Joe Jurevicius is listed as questionable on the injury report with a sore lower back. However, Jurevicius, who practiced Wednesday, said he was surprised to see his name on the list. Meanwhile, Bucs' head coach Jon Gruden told the Tampa Tribune that Jurevicius will start in place of the injured Joey Galloway on Sunday against the Chiefs.
Views: Jurevicius and Tim Brown will be the starting wideouts, while rookie Michael Clayton will play the No. 3 role on Sunday. However, don't be surprised if the red-hot rookie leads the team in receiving for a third consecutive week, as he has been the go-to player and is clearly the only deep threat.


sounds like an INSTANT effect to me!

That's just Fanball's view of what they think. Go to NFL.com and they have Clayton on the depth chart ahead of Brown.

Starting in week 1 Clayton has been the most targetted WR in TB, even when Galloway was healthy. He's the real deal.
