I would rank him as an OK #2 WR with #1 potential but he would be better targetted as at #3.

He is a top 5-7 talent in the NFL at WR.

Somewhere an old lady is yelling "Bingo!" just for this post.


I love the caption. "An elderly woman yesterday".
1335 rushing yards, 53 receptions, 441 receiving yards. 18 TDs.
Money in the bank.

In response to what johnpax had to say...

Andre Johnson is a top talent at WR in the National Football League, he's not "o-v-e-r-a-t-e-d." There's a reason why so many people expect him to produce big numbers...because he is only a decent O-Line away from becoming one of the most dangerous receivers in the game.
To say that Lelie is a better deep threat than Andre Johnson is pure ignorance. The Denver offensive line is arguably one of the best in the game. Did you consider the fact that David Carr never has enough time to wait for Andre's deep-routes to develop, thus eliminating possibilities for Johsnon to make deep catches? Do you know the former O.C. of Denver, Gary Kubiak, is now Houston's H.C., which definitely won't hurt. By the way, his 489 yards after the catch were 2nd best among NFL receivers. And despite playing on a run-first offense, he ranked among the league leaders in receptions over 25 yards with 13.
I agree with you that every year he's been projected to be a fantasy stud and it never quite panned out. And, yes, he has been selected too high in fantasy drafts for the last 2 years, but, honestly dude, the guy is the real deal.
You're skeptical of him and that's cool because everyone has their own opinion, but your post was clearly written as if someone who'd buy into A.J. this year is an idiot and that's just not the case.

I am surprised that no one mentioned the D. Davis situation here.....if DD can't play, defenses will be teeing off on Carr and covering Johnson like a blanket. And since DD's health is looking iffier each week, I'd steer clear of Johnson unless he falls out of the top twenty....

I would take Plax, Williams and Driver before AJ every day, all day. Walker's got the injury risk, crappy QB on a run 1st team, Rod Smith is the man in DEN question marks. S Moss is fast, but on a run 1st team with a wheelchair QB.

The maybe was only meant for Driver. The other guys, whether they deserve to or not are going to go before AJ in just about every draft. I said maybe with Driver because in a dynasty he'll likely get passed up for AJ.

When is Jake Plummer a crappy QB?!
2004: 4100 yds 28 TD
2005: 3400 yds 18 TD( it lowered but that isnt crappy)
