I don't see much value in him. He's a rookie for one, and he plays for the Titans. When is the last time a Titan WR was worth owning if you didn't add in kick-off and punt returns? Never.

For rookie WR's I'd look to the Rams for Kevin Curtis (#3 WR), but there is probably a better option to grab. Aside from Rogers and maybe Johnson, I don't know if there's a real solid guy to get as a rookie WR at this point.

Burleson for the Vikes has impressed and been promoted to the #3 spot. It's not a very big gap to the #2 spot in MN with Bates starting. If you play in a keep everybody type league he'd be worth a shot. Curtis with the Rams would be huge in that type of league.

Unless you are in a keeper league, stay away from rookie WR's. I know even Rogers is tempting, but if you look at history, only two rookie receivers have finished in the top 30 over the past five years (Moss and Kevin Johnson). Not to say it can't happen, but the WR ranks are deep and I'm sure you can find value without taking a risk on a rook.

I disagree with dgroundhog about Titan WRs, D Mase will put up
some nice numbers, but Calico is not a good option early in
the season. He is not #3 now, watch him and he may be a
good pickup later. The sleeper on the Titans roster is McCairens.

yeah, if you get Rogers and Johnson why not get Harrington and Kitna? exactly.

Calico has McNair throwing to him. I thought he would win 3rd spot, but i don't think he has, yet. The Titans will be looking downfield this season. probably to take some carries away from George or save him for the playoffs.

He does have the size and speed to be a great WR oneday though. plus you could get him rather later. why do keeper league people draft WRs first? it makes no sense to me.
