here's a question, if you believe in all the fitz hype and have an owner who is not on the same page, how heavy do you push to try and acquire fitz? what caliber of a receiver?

Green not only drafted Fitz, but if I'm not mistaken is somehow related to him (godparent?). I might be wrong there. Thought I remembered reading something last year. At any rate he is clearly a favorite of his coach and will get his looks.

You need to show both rosters and scoring rules. Then post it in the trade forum.

Way to early for this questions. Fits got some very good numbers, but let's see how he reacts to getting double coverages.

If you saw the game, then it was evident that Boldin was getting doubled for a large portion of the game (as defenses believe him to be the #1 in that offense). If this focus changes, as I expect it to after the game Fitz had, so will the production.

IMO, Fitz's is the #1. I own Boldin and he is a good receiver that will catch anything thrown near him, but Fitz is much more talented in my book.

Not forget that the New York Giant's have one of the smallest starting secondaries in the entire league. Basically the perfect matchup for a tall, "jump ball" type WR like Fitzgerald. Remember to play any tall WR against the NYG and you will come out ahead this season IMO.


Will Allen 5'10" 196
William Peterson 6'0" 200
Gibril Wilson 6'0" 197
Brent Alexander 5'11" 200


Larry Fitzgerald 6'3" 221

Look for Antonio Gates to light up the scoreboard in week 3. I'm predicting a multiple touchdown game.

I had Fitz ranked above Boldin on my cheatsheet when drafting. I didn't land either because I was higher on Steve Smith and was able to get him in rd 5 in almost every league i drafted in. People do need to consider that alot of Fitz catches were in garbage time but we also need to realize that AZ will more then likely be playing alot of garbage time minutes this year. Fitz is a better deep threat then Boldin which makes him a better garbage time WR. I see Boldin as more of a Burleson type good route running possesion WR which should make him be a better performer in closer games.

It's pretty obvious who most people are gonna say is the #1 WR at this point. Come back in a few weeks...


sayyyyy....didn't I take Fitz right after you took Boldin in a money league somewhere?

Weren't you the one talkin smack about Boldin being more experienced, better yada yada yada?

Maybe I'll bookmark this thread for 4 weeks from now. :-D

Hmmmmm....so who can cover Fitz?

Ed Reed 5'11"
Dunta Robinson 5'10"
Ronde Barber 5'10"
Troy Polamalu 5'10"
Terrence McGee 5'9"
Nate Clements 6'0"
Marcus Trufant 5'11"
Antoine Winfield 5'9"
Brian Dawkins 5'11"
Dre Bly 5'9"

According to your logic Fitz will score a lot of TDs this year.

I know that you signed Boldin to a 4 year contract and want to make yourself feel better so I will stop now :-°

Good point Mookie, there aren't many corners in the league (outside of Lenny Walls) that have the size to match up w/ Fitz.

I guess you missed the part where I said that Boldin is guaranteed 4 catches and 50 yards minimum week to week, while Fitzgerald is going to have some amazing highs and devastating lows.
