fantasy-wise, of course, you want the raiders. because detroit doesn't have a great quarterback and all the detroit wideouts are about equal on ability/potential, so none of them are the go-to guy which moss is in any city other than philadelphia.
I completely agree. You simply cant bet against Moss, but just like Matthias, I just do not respect Porter and see him as one of the more overrated WRs in the league. Curry and Gabriel are ok, but the NFL speed merchant WRs just dont impress me all that much - the league is kinda saturated with speed guys.
When CRog plays all yr this yr, and you see what kind of WR BMW is, this question will be a formality come next yr - everyone will know who the best WR corps in the league is. But as of right now, there is no way anyone can say DET has the best WRs - they havent done anything. Its all speculation and talent with almost no actual NFL performance.
Remember how jaw dropping talented Roy looked last yr? Dont forget he played injured for well over half the season. Now consider that most people who follow the Lions believe Charles Rogers is actually more talented. People who saw USC play 2 years ago know all too well the merits of BMW - aside from Larry Fitzgerald, Mike Williams is probably the best redzone threat WR to enter the NFL in the last 5 years. If these guys play anywhere near their potential, DET could have a WR group that is not only the best in the league, but it could challenge some of the greatest WR corps the NFL has ever seen.
