Would you feel comfortable with him as a #2 WR or as a #3?

Would you feel comfortable with him as a #3, or would he need to be #4?

I wouldn't want him as a starter and would feel comfortable with him on my bench as a #4 WR.

Never fall in love with a player... he's best upside is to the level of a 3rd FF WR... nothing more. The magic is not going to suddenly re-appear. See David Boston.

I agree that you shouldn't fall in love with a player, that's a totally different kind of fantasy that I am sure we don't want to know about.

But I do think that Clayton is a decent #3 WR if your RB corps is deep. He has a chance to re-appear than Boston, but you have to wonder about him being injury prone. He is in a good system for him and has the skills to excel. Would love him as a #4, take him as a #3.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I drafted Clayton in a couple leagues. I am also a big fan of his, but to tell the truth, I only drafted him because "I think" he will bounce back, more so because i like him and still believe.

At the spot he's been going in most drafts, he definitely has a lot of potential. I wouldn't be scared to take a chance on him.

So two years ago this guy was a #2 fantasy WR, in his rookie year, and now his UPSIDE is a #3 WR. That's solid logic.
