Josh Reed or Bobby Shaw? Need some info.

Postby mscowboys » Thu Aug 28, 2003 9:28 am

I currently have Josh Reed and John Clayton has named a one of the 32 difference makers.

When I read the info on Reed it says he has to come through for them, it also says that the Bills like Shaw's route running better than Reed and Shaw may become the #2 WR moving Reed to becoming the #3 Slot WR.

There something special about that blue star on that helmet.

This is a very interesting and very important subject to fantasy players. The #2 slot in BUF will probably post big numbers. Since the preseason started, Josh Reed has been getting the most attention, but this past week we have learned that actually Bobby Shaw might be the man. How important is this? If I had to guess, I would say right now Reed is owned in 99% of most leagues where as Shaw is probably available in just as many.

What I have been reading recently is that its Shaw who now has the upper hand, and for all those people holding on to Reed, its time to pay real close attention to this situation.

Does anyone have any insight into this WR battle?

By Leo Roth

(August 25, 2003) — ORCHARD PARK — Free agent Bobby Shaw may have leapfrogged second-year man Josh Reed to earn the Buffalo Bills starting wide receiver job alongside Pro Bowler Eric Moulds.

In Saturday’s 28-24 victory over the St. Louis Rams, Reed finally caught his first passes of the preseason from quarterback Drew Bledsoe, three for 44 yards, including a pretty 29-yarder over-the-middle to set up a field goal try.

But Shaw was more impressive, catching four passes for 43 yards and an 8-yard touchdown. A 23-yard reception to convert a third-and-long play set up another Bills’ score.

“ He’s a very smart receiver in the slot,” Bledsoe said of Shaw, who played for Bills offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride in Jacksonville. “ He does a great job with his moves at the top of his routes and gets himself separation. He has a lot of experience in this offense, so he really understands where we need him to be.”

My view:
This article is a from earlier in the week. Watch the Bills last preseason game and see which ever WR has a better game will probably be the starter.
