Gotta disagree on this one. Wilford was the man for awhile back when Leftwich was healthy. Even with Jimmy in the there, Wilford looked like the #1 guy in a few games and he led the team in TDs last season. Matt Jones will be a quality redzone threat and probably wins a starting position over Reggie Williams (he already has from camp reports), but I look for Wilford to be the guy in Jacksonville. Matt Jones needs more polish to be a serious fantasy threat IMO. And it doesn't matter what position you play in college, you still have a lot to learn in year 2 of your NFL career.

I think with Colbert's horrid play last season, Carter will be able to take the slot position. If you look at what Carter did and compare it to what Colbert did during the last several week of the Panthers' season (postseason included) you'll see that Carter dwarfs Colbert's numbers.


What about Colbert's numbers, andexperience as a starter, during his first year in the league? If we go by last year's numbers alone, Ike Hilliard is going to be a better fantasy WR than Michael Clayton.


I really don't have anything more to say about this issue anymore. We're beating our heads together over a supersleeper for God's sakes. Let's just see what happens. I think Carter is someone to keep an eye on as a deep sleeper. You don't. End of subject.

Thanks! Elisha Cuthbert has been my dream girl since my wife made me watch some movie where she plays a porn star. Other than that the movie sucked, but she was fun to watch!

Ahhh, that's who that is.

"The Girl Next Door" is the movie you are thinking of.

Elisha Cuthbert is a P.O.A. :-L

Jon Kitna up in Detroit isn't a bad sleeper. He's won the starting job over McCown according to reports there.

Kitna could be a mediocre to good backup IMO
