Culpepper loves Burleson. He has a great attitude, knows the playbook, and a marginal to non-existent ego. Huge diff from Moss. Look for Burleson to go 12 TD's or more this year.

Boldin is playing in a very crowded WR field now on a team that still sucks with a washed up QB.

Your call.

Burlson is #1 with Daunte. Boldin is number 2 with Warner. I'd go with Daunte.

Gotta take Burleson here. He is ina greatsituation for a reciever and shouldput up very stong numbers. Remember even when Moss was out last year he was putting up great numbers... he'll probaly do the same.

i'd sooner have nate too...but i wouldn't discount boldin at all (he is going VERY low overall). also, i wouldn't be surprised to see him post better numbers that fitz...but we'll see.

i think boldin is underrated and undervalued, but i believe burleson has a better situation going in minny. it's a simple as what QB you would want on your team, warner or culpepper. gotta go with the culpepper-to-burleson combo this year. but boldin is a top 20, maybe top 15 WR.

I'm liking Burleson this year over Boldin. PPR would possibly tighten things up but Burleson looks to me like an entirely new, better WR than he even did last year. I also see Culpepper and his steadiness that he brings to the position as being a huge plus over a pretty big question mark in Warner.

i dont see how the two can really be compared. First lets look at the qbs Daunte Culpepper or Kurt "washed up" warner?? Next lets look at the competion for receptions. In Arizona Boldin will be splitting receptions with Fitzgerald who Kurt has said good thinkgs about this pre season. In Minnesota. Burleson is the unquestioned starting wr. Although he does have a tough playoff schuedle Burleson will prove to be the better fantasy option.

Boldin is severly underrated in any leagues that count points for receptions. This guy is the prototypical reception


would you like to explain how you have come to this conclusion?? i dont see how boldin will get more catches with Fitz on the other side.

Could go for either player, I think Boldin could post as many as 20-30 more receptions than Burleson though. Pretty neck and neck in my book... I probably go with Boldin though, because he always blows up against NFC West opponents. Just like Torry Holt always blows up at home. Pretty predictable player in that respect.


What's your projected stats for them? I have them like this (rankings based on 10yds/6pt TDs/1pt per rec):

#9 Burleson 1200/80/10
#20 Boldin 1000/80/7

I'd actually be VERY interested to see your WR projections because I believe your QB and RB projections that you posted were among the best I've seen.

Because Boldin won't drop the ball like Fitz does! In that last preseason game I saw Fitz drop two balls thrown at him in one quarter of the game. That is not the way you gain confidence with your QB.
