I looked for a search function, because I'm sure the topic has come up, but could not find it, so please do not scold me too harshly if that is the case.
Why is it that people seem to be so low on Moss? I realize that he has had consecutive down seasons, but both due to nagging injuries, 2004 his had plantar fasciitis, a foot ailment that basically kept him out for 5 gamesof the 04 season, and despite that he was on pace for 16 TD's. That is lacking to acknowledge his hamstring injury as well, we all remember a one legged Moss burn Harris for a TD and the craziness that ensued. While in 05 he was plagued by rib, groin, and hamstring injuries from basically week 5 on.
Do people really not trust his talent? His health? His QB? I think anyone who watched more than a few Raiders game understood just how little Norv Turner utlized Moss when healthly.
I realize Brooks is no Culpepper, but he has a past with good #'s with Joe Horn a noticably lesser WR, not to mention his scrambling ability is bound to help Moss with a few big broken plays.
I'm not here to proclaim Moss as the #1 fantasy WR, but I don't understand some of the "washed up" sentiment when it has only been naggin injuries. Obviously injuries are never something you can just completely shrug off, but I don't think Moss can be tagged injury prone just yet.
Am I missing any big factors, I think Moss is a steal in the 4th which is where I have seen him go.
