Who's the better sleeper: Shaun McDonald or Greg Lewis?

Postby Crafty » Fri Mar 25, 2005 12:35 pm

Owens is the man, but the number 2 receiver on the Eagles, Pinkston, sucks. And Freddie Mitchell is gone, right? Holt is also the man for the Rams, but Bruce might finally be slowing down.

Last year it looked like Greg Lewis was capable of great things in Philly, and Shaun McDonald (or Kevin Curtis, I suppose) might get more looks in St. Louis, where they throw 50 times a game.

I see some good sleeper potential here. Who's the better pick in the late rounds?

I would say McDonald or Curtis is better than Lewis as long as they don't split the looks that go because there's not all that much to go around after Holt and Bruce.

I'd say McDonald would still be the better bet here, simply based on the type of offense that they run in STL. Lewis still needs to develop a bit more.

Greg Lewis is a decent receiver he is will NOT get END ZONE targets. Owens-Chad lewis-Westbrook own that dept.

Shaun Mcdonald and that Bulger generally can connect at any time for both yardage and TDs.

Shaun is easily the way to go.

I'm gonna go against the grain here and pick Lewis. In terms of a supporting cast, the teams are almost identical on offense. The difference maker is going to be who comes into the no.2 job faster. IMO, I think Lewis will supplant Mitchell much faster than McDonald will outperform Bruce. Talent-wise I think they are very similar, and despite popular opinion about the Rams offensive scheme being more friendly, I dont think it is.

If I'm not mistaken I believe Chad Lewis retired this offseason, which in the end leaves more opportunity for Lewis than for McDonald in STL IMO (considering their multiple pass-catching threats in the red-zone).

Even if Chad Lewis retired(my bad) I still intended to name a TE here. So LJ SMITH will do fine.

Gun to my head, McDonald but I'm not drafting either guy in any leagues.

Greg Lewis has some talent but like some already said, he may be somewhat of a long ball threat but won't score many touchdowns. McDonald (or Curtis) can probably do both. I'll go with McDonald, just because I could see myself drafting him in a very late round as a deep backup...but for some reason I just cannot see myself drafting Greg Lewis. Strange. :-?

Lewis will be much less of a target with TO healthy.
