If it helps anyone it really helps LJ Smith. He's been the equivalent of their #2 Wr. This will lead to even more looks for him.

westbrook if he lines up at wr on any give play. you dont need to double greg lewis. he can't break coverage on one DB. two would be overkill. i'd think they might bring safety help sometimes on LJ but not all the time.

I don't buy the whole "defenses will focus more on Westbrook" argument. Steve Smith and Santana Moss don't seem to care about the extra attention, I don't who else on those teams that represent any significant receiving threat.

I think it's a toss up between who it helps more, either Westbrook or LJ Smith. Your guess is as good as mine as to who'll be targetted more.

My guess is that Westy will be the beneficiary of TO's injury. McNabb is still hurting and cannot stay in the pocket too long. This gives Westy more opportunities to catch it in the flats.

I sure hope that they do not put Gordan in the backfield and Westy split out. That will definitely hurt Westbrook's FF value.

how would it hurt him? he doesn't run that much as it is. when he is used as a receiver he gets tons of looks.

With Williams and Lewis as the main receivers, Philly will have to muster a running game. If Gordon is in the backfield, this obviously hurts Westy's value. I get 1 point for every 20 yards.

I highly doubt that this scenario will occur. Go Westbrook!!!
