Eh, I can't trust either Galloway or Clayton at this point. Clayton is complaining about already having turf toe before the season even gets started and Galloway is older than dirt. I realize Joey just had a great season, but it had been quite some time since he was even more than a blip on the fantasy radar. I dare say, since his days with the Hawks. I think Galloway will still outperform Clayton, mostly because Clayton just cannot seem to stay healthy.

Those numbers were so far above his normal (like Mussin the previous year) I'm avoiding him like the plague. Let someone else reach for a guy who will disappoint unless everyone is sleeping on him.


Look on the teams Galloway has been stuck on the past 5 years or so. He got traded to Dallas right during their string of back to back to back to back to back 5-11 seasons before Parcells was there. They were a similar team when compared to the Detroit freakin Lion's.

HE comes to Tampa and produces instantly (albeit getting hurt very early in his first season, but he finished the year very strong). I can only see continued success with Galloway barring injury. Other players are no real threat to his production IMO. I think he makes a decent #2 WR and is approriated value where he is drafted in the 6th round or so. Simms seems to be maturing as an NFL QB, the skill position players on offense can at worst keep drives alive and ball moving. Everything there points to the offense getting BETTER this year, creating more consistency and opportunity for all players.

I'll admit, I think there are better WR values out there with less risk, but I have nothing against having Galloway on my team when all is said and done.

The thing about Galloway is that he had been a perrenial unerachiever previous to last year. Then it just seemed to click. Before he was just a speedster, but he didn't do the little things to make himself better. Last year, he finally matured into a veteran WR. I don't think he will post the same numbers he did last year, but I also don't think his numbers will see a major decline.

I also think his year was a fluke. Of course, I'm a bitter Cowboys fan and I'll never forgive him for making the Cowboys waste 2 first round picks on him. But seriously, I'd expect an 800 yard, 8 TD season from Galloway this year.

I had Clayton 2 yrs. ago, and Galloway last year in my 2nd league.

I would be shocked if Joey had a great year.

I would expect a role reversal from last year, actually.

Joey is a terrific bust candidate, and Clayton is a nice sleeper possibility, I'd think.

For me, it really depends on Claytons turf toe, and the possible reimurgance of David Boston. Can't really give a prediction on Galloway yet.

You, sir, are the rightest right can be. The most correctly of correct. Stupid Joey Galloway.

But if he's still there in the 8th round, I'd take a look.
