Matt Jones
Lee Evans

Nate Burleson

Jones is the clear favorite out of these guys. He's got a year under his belt and is clearly leftwich's favorite target, especially in the redzone.

Evans while on the Bills still should put up some good yardage totals and TDs. The Bills will be behind often and if Losman is QBing Evans will see his share of deep balls.

Burleson may be "offically" the No. 2 but Engram will put up better numbers even in the slot. Hassleback has shown that he favors Engram when he's in trouble.

evans mite not be the most consistent guy but he can have some nice games here and there from the inconsistency in BUF. by the end of the season, evans will put up better numbers. i dont noe much about burleson's situation in SEA, especially with engram's good game preseason week 2.

I wouldn't touch Lee Evans with a 10-foot pole this season. Nate Burleson isn't high on my sleeper list, but I would want him ahead of Evans.

PS- I think Burleson is totally overrated compared to Engram.

Nall could potentially be the QB in Buffalo and he's not that bad...A big upgrade over Holcomb and Losman. Assuming he becomes the starter, Evans will probably be a better option then Burleson.

I don't see any comparison between these 2 players. It's a #1 vs a #3

Not to be a homer, but Evans is being grossly undervalued in most drafts.....he and Losman (who has all but wrapped up the starting QB spot) have a great chemistry. Losman likes to throw bombs, so Evans had good numbers with JP at QB. Holcomb's spaghetti arm, meanwhile, caused KH and the older, possession-minded Moulds to connect last year (while Evans suffered).

This is 2006 - Moulds is gone, Losman will be starting and is unlikely to get yanked so fast, and preseason has shown that the chemistry is still there. If you look back to last year, in the last four games that Losman started, Evans had 314 yd and 3 TD.....over a full year at that rate, Evans would've been a top five WR last year! That's unlikely to happen, but there is lotsa upside for Evans at his ADP.....

Hope you play Evans during the correct 2 or 3 games this year. Can't score on a long bomb every week.

wow, people are high on Engram, he's on my waiver wire... should I pick him up? I can drop a back-up TE for him. will Engram be better than Amani Toomer? He's there too.
