Predictions for NE Receivers?

Postby skinsfan » Tue Sep 05, 2006 9:40 am

How do you rank them, with or without the TE?

I say

Gabriel - 800yd, 10TD
Caldwell - 1000yd, 6TD
Watson - 700yd, 7TD
Brown - 500yd, 3TD
Graham - 250yd, 4TD
Childress - 200yd, 2TD

Nice rankings, I can see Brady throwing those kind of numbers. (Although I doubt Graham will nab 4 TD's)

I think that's a lot of TD's and that Watson will become the primary target, but for the most part they're good.

Are you predicting that Chad Jackson doesn't even see the the field? And I would argue that Branch is quite a bit more talented than either Gabriel or Calwell and he never saw those numers as WR1.

Wake up. Branch isn't gonna be there. And I'm just including guys who I think will make some impact fantasy-wise. Good point to whoever told me bout Childress, I had hear positive reports a couple weeks ago. I suppose then that we could switch him for Jackson.

32 TDs to Brady without listing about 10 other guys he will throw to this year? Yeah, I'm not buying.

Evaluating your player projections, I think you have this situation mapped entirely wrong. Gabriel's numbers are incredibly inflated, as are Caldwells. Your biggest mistake is your underestimation of Troy Brown and even moreso the absence of other WRs, RBs, and TEs. Last year guys not named Branch, Givens, Watson, Graham, Troy Brown, Tim Dwight (WR1/2/3/4, TE1/2) Totalled: 1100/5


I think it goes something like this for 2006:

Troy Brown- 900/5
Ben Watson- 700/6
Doug Gabriel- 600/4
Reche Caldwell- 500/3
Kevin Faulk- 300/1
all other WRs, RBs, and TEs- 800/6

~3800/26

Wake up? Reread the post buddy. At this point I'm not figuring Branch into the equation. I'm simply stating that Branch is
more talented and polished at WR than either Gabriel or Caldwell. Therefore, predicting Gabriel AND Caldwell to post better numbers than Branch ever saw as the WR1 is a bit ignorant...don't you think?

C'mon, be serious. With those numbers that puts Gabriel around top 10 WR, Caldwell top 25 and Watson top 3 TE. There is no way. Maybe cut those numbers in half.

I'm going to say this, Ben Watson will lead all NE receivers in TD's
