Burleson looking good

It has been widely assumed that 6-3 wide receiver Marcus Robinson would inherit the designated end zone receiver duties for the Vikings now that Randy Moss is gone. But the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports No. 1 wideout Nate Burleson has a 42 inch vertical and has been a "frequent red-zone target during training camp."

If Burleson garners most of the end zone looks, he will swallow up what little fantasy value Robinson has. Either way, in Robinson and Burleson, the Vikings still have a solid pair of end zone targets for Daunte Culpepper to hook up with. And if all else fails, the big quarterback has been known to tuck it away and take it across the stripe himself from time to time.

Yep, and Travis Taylor is looking good in camp, too. Our receiving corp is looking very deep right now...

"Travis Taylor, so far the surprise of camp? "He's not a surprise to me," Culpepper said. "We were playing high school ball in Florida at the same time. He was one of the biggest names in Florida football.

"So, I knew about Travis ... knew he was better than the stats he was bringing from Baltimore. All he needed was a offensive system like this."

Travis Taylor = Sleeper

Of course, if he keeps this up he won't be much of a sleeper. I've always liked him, even when he was in Baltimore. I always felt like many do, that he was a product of a horrid quarterbacking system in Baltimore. Maybe he can be the next Brandon Stokley coming out of Baltimore into a more pass friendly system.

I do like our wide recievers this year. Burleson will do very good and our other WR will pick up the slack that moss left. Were gonna be fine without that jerk.
