Why not trade him? His value is at its all time high. He IS an injury prone player, why not get rid of him and get great value for him at the same time?

He still has only missed 2 games form injury in the last two years, I wouldn't trade that. He is the 5th best player right now in my fantasy league, and that is including QB's and WR's!

This is the 2nd year he is the fulltime starter so he is more comfortable in the offense and the Phil O is using him more now. Also Phil #2 WR is a joke this year so they have to rely on there limited playmakers more; Owens and Westy. Phil offense isn't as dominate as it was last year but thats a good thing for Westy.

Injury is a concern
Also I don't trust RBs week-to-week that don't get alot of carries. There are still a number of RBs I'd rather have instead of Westy.

I wouldn't really call Greg Lewis a joke!

Are you kidding?

There is a reason he was 4th on the depth chart last year behind TO, Pinkston, and Mitchell.

Pinkston is ok at best. Mitchell can't even make a NFL team these days.

Lewis is #2 this year by default, because no one else is there, not based on talent.

Yeah, I mean they're old WR was so much better. Pinkston had last year:

36 rec, 676 yards, and 1 TD

Greg Lewis has:

15 rec, 153 yards, and 1 TD in 3 games. Project those out for the whole season he's on pace for:

80 rec, 816 yards, 5 TDs.

I guess that's pathetic for #2 WRs. Like TJ Housh who has less receptions and yards than Greg Lewis. Reggie Wayne and Jerry Porter are only putting up comparable stats. I guess these guys are all jokes?

prove it. I give you stats, you post opinions without basis. He's putting up stats comparable to some of the top #2 WRs in the game, and has no history of failing to produce since this is his first chance to start on any team. Unproven: yes. Producing: yes. No Good: No.

my 90 year-old grandmother could put up solid stats opposite TO with the philly O-line.

The stats he as put up so far mean nothing. The guy isn't any good, he's not a real WR. There's a reason he wasn't even drafted.
