Derrick Mason was never in Steve Smith's class even when McNair was throwing the ball to him in Tennessee. I think if you're expecting Smith-like numbers out of Mason, you're about to be sorely disappointed. Mason's never even caught double digit touchdowns in a single season.

Don't expect Steve Smith numbers, but I could see him cracking the top 12 receivers area....


Trust me, we have all been waiting for Donte to break out for years now ... myself more than anyone else. I hope that he does take the reigns from Horn and establish himself as a true No. 1 WR, and I think he is more than capable of that, but he needs to establish himself as the leader of the WRs first, and I am not sure he can do that.

I agree with the Roy Williams pick, I think he's in the position most akin to what Steve Smith was in.

I've owned Smith in a keeper since '03, and stuck with him on my bench throughout the entire injury season in '04 because I knew the kind of potential he had shown the year before. Smith cannot be labelled a total surprise last year when you look at the excellent numbers he put up in '03. He was consistently good week in and week out.

Williams seems similar to me, he was a top breakout player a few years ago, but injuries hampered him big-time last year. Everyone knows he has talent, though, and if anything the offensive situation around him has improved with Martz coming in and either Kitna/McCown throwing him the ball instead of Harrington. If he's healthy (and I think he is), Williams has stud potential written all over him, and you may be able to get him relatively cheap based on last year's performance.

My only problem with Roy Williams is he seems forever broke. Steve Smith suffered a season ending injury. Williams on the other hand has that Chris Brown feel about him. Turf toe, hammy, hangnail...

I dont doubt his talent and if he stays healthy he will explode. I just dont trust the guy to play through pain and i hate watching injury reports before submitting my starters.

The thing with Roy is that he has a new sheriff in town, and Martz/Marinelli don't take well to soft players. I think he might be more motivated to be in game shape and play through some of the things that softy Mariucci would give R&R and a hug for. He has a tremendous upside.

Agree. Roy has scored nearly 20 TDs in what amounts to about 20 games of healthy playing time over the past two seasons (including his rookie year). IF he can stay healthy, get motivated, and the Lion's offense doesn't completely collapse, the potential there is limitless. Mariucci had to ask nicely for the team to jog around the field, while Martz demands full speed at all times. I think you will see a different Lion's offense this year, and Roy looks to be the clear #1 goto guy. A team doesn't have to be a winner to produce a fantasy stud WR..
