Nate Burleson= Sleeper?

Postby DbacksAllTheWay » Tue Oct 10, 2006 1:07 am

Nate has a pretty good matchup this week vs. STL and I believe he will have a pretty good game there. What are all your guys thoughts on this guy for this game and the whole season?

i think picking a certain seattle wideout to break out in any game is a crapshoot at best.

If you mean he'll sleep through his performance, then yes. The guy's never been that good...and he's the #3 WR on his team...isn't Stevens coming back as well? All signs point to a comatose performance.

Watching Nate drop passes this year has made me pine for Koren Robinson.

With 2 weeks off to learn more and more of the playbook, I expect Branch to see more and more time, thus decreasing the value of Nate Burleson.

Nate :-t

Like said from above, he has been dropping passes like crazy and there are too many other talented WR's on the team.

Let not forget Stevens is coming back and I'm sure they will try to emphasize on the run more this game, because last game they threw the run out the door and look what happened.

Well in Seattle, it's been DJax and Engram as the steady producers the last few years. They added Burleson at the beginning of the year.

Then they felt a need to go get Deion Branch... what does that tell you?

I feel that Hasselbeck's go to guy is DJax. His short-pass / sure hand guy is Engram. They thought they had a big play guy in Burleson, but he hasn't panned out too well. Now that Branch is there, he steals from Engram and Burleson.

DJax is the only reliable fantasy receiver on the Seahawks. They are so deep at receiver now that they probably intend to use all 4 of these WRs mentioned. It makes Djax the clear #1, Branch and Burleson are like #3's and Engram is like a #4. I expect Branch to be a clear #2 before long, but they will still continue to use Engram and Burleson which steals from him.

In a more prolific passing offense, it would be worth picking up a #3 WR, but this isn't exactly the Indianapolis Colts.

haha... I had a paper bag challenge, since before the draft, that Toomer would finish with more points than Nate (basically saying Nate is garbage)....

looks like I'm going to win that bet.

Just to make it clear, Nate = Garbage. The chances of him going off are equal to any other one-week wonder WW fodder.
