Nice list. Obviously not everyone agrees - however - there is one that really sticks out to me: Troy Williamson. This list has him rated higher than both MRobinson and TTaylor - even though both of those guys are ahead of him in the depth chart.
Too funny - a prime example of rookie hype.
I think it's more rookie promise or rookie potential than it is actual hype. I think most people realize that Taylor and Robinson's potential isn't that great so Williamson becomes the second best reciever to have in that offense.
Williamson has the potential to go 1400 and 9? Because thats the apparant potential ceiling for MRob (1999).
There are just so many reasons to think Troy Williamson will be a bust for fantasy purposes, basically for him to be fantasy worthy in '05 he has to overcome way too many obstacles.
I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Robinson had the ceiling of 1400 and 9. His potential six years later, though, is low. Using 1999 as Robinson's potential is like using a mid-90's season as Rice's potential and that's not realistic.
Could have said the same thing about Muhammad last year. The biggest knock on Marcus Robinson is not his talent level and potential production, but his injury issues. If Marcus Robinson manages to stay fully healthy in 2005. his numbers could rival career highs in a lot of categorys in the Minnesota offense.
I mean he was basically the #3 WR for the Vikes last year and he still scored 8 touchdowns to go along with multiple 100 yard games and 2 touchdown games. Really the Vikings were not that far behind the Colt's last season when you look at the production from their 3rd WR and TE.
Robinson was fighting Moss and Burleson for playing time in 2004 and this year he may have the opportunity to be the full time starter with Moss is no longer there. Additionally Wiggins may have a reduced role with the return of Kleinsasser.
