Yeah I would be worried with him as a #2. Im not sure Id even want him to be my #2. There are very few WRs who are 32 on their own team and viable fantasy starters. Pretty much just Wayne and Houshmandzadeh.

I defintely wouldnt want Burleson as my No. 2. He may "offically" be the No. 2 guy in Seattle but Engram will line up in the slot and get more catches this year. Engram and Hass have a connection. Burleson has a lot of potential but hes a big risk this year.

i Love Nate this year....people got down on him last year but that was because he had a poor QB throwing to him , in a bad offensive unit. He was also hurt.

Now he's in a very good offensive system w/ Hass throwing along w a good running gamr and healthy body. And he's looked good in pre seaon....I see him as a solid #2

Don't forget what happened last year. Everybody was high on him as the #1 in Minn, and he couldn't get it done. He's a better #2 than a #1, kinda like Peerless Price. I think Burleson's stock actually goes down if Jackson isn't healthy, because he might have to step into that #1 role and tank.

I reached a bit for Burleson as wr3, and i feel good ... like i knew i might. Forget last year: Burleson is back home in Seattle and Hass is saying that throwing to him is as easy as playing sandlot with your best friend; or something similarly heart-warming. I see the Seahawk pass game expanding and ten td passes are still looking for a receiver since JJ left town, and now Stevens is down for six weeks or so. If Jackson's knee of infamy does not respond well this season, then Nate is all systems glow.

I'm willing to have a friendly bet that you'll get the same (or better) production out of A. Toomer than Nate B. (barring injury)... one can be had in the 7th-8th round, the other off the WW.

Any takers?

Easy bet there.

Burleson>>>>>>>>>>>>>Toomer.

Mark it down.

In my 14 team league I've got Burleson as my #3, and in my 8 teamer he's actually my #5.

But I think he will have a very solid year. I would not be shocked if he rebounded in a Glenn, SMoss, or Galloway type fashion.

Cool, I'm game. 1 week paper bag challenge? The paper bag is worn during the first regular season week of the 2007 season.

Bet: Toomer will put up equal to or greater average weekly points than Nate B. 6 points per TD, 1 point per 10 yards receiving. Weeks 1 through 15. The players must play at least 12 games. Benched games (not due to injuries, but performance) count.

Want to give me some odds if you're so confident?

Lets have some fun :-)
