I think that his stock drops significantly just because the Patriots don't tend to have one huge WR or anything, they spread it around a lot. :-?


I agree, I believe even if he stays healthy for 16 games, his numbers will probably go for 55 catches 6 tds, not exactly earth shattering numbers.

Pats should have one of the best offenses in the NFL as long as Stallworth's jelly hamstring can hold up and Maroney stays healthy. ;-D

McNasty wasn't shy about spreading the ball around either, so I think Donte's value stays about the same.

Good signing by New England, as a healthy Stallworth definitely adds a new dimension to the Pats' passing game.

So what's everyone's thoughts on Reggie Brown now that Donte's out of Philly?

I think Reggie Brown will continue to improve. In the games where Donte sat out due to injury, Reggie's stats were pretty impressive...

week 3 vs. SF - 5 receptions, 106 yards
week 5 vs. DAL - 4 receptions, 79 yards, 1 TD
week 6 vs. NO - 6 receptions, 121 yards, 2 TD
week 7 vs. TB - 4 receptions, 77 yards, 1 TD

Those numbers are argueably Reggie's best numbers and they all came when Stallworth was out, so I'd say Brown's better off without Donte. ;-D

I wouldn't say it drops at all. Branch twice caught for 800+ yards when he was with the Pats, and he's nowhere near the deep threat Stallworth is. This guys probably in for a monster year yards-wise.


I think it's a push - the Pats spread it around a lot, but so do the Eagles. He is still going to be an inconsistent fantasy option, so he won't really rise above #3WR status in my mind.

Brown could be a real steal this year....3rd year.

I think this is a very good signing, at this point in the season the Pats look like very good contenders for winning the Superbowl XLII

Reid finally figured out how to pick a WR, thank god. Brown is the #1 target is what will still be a very pass-oriented offense I suspect, that alone makes him quite valuable. Baskett's value depends solely on whether or not the Eagles sign a vet like Moulds or Curtis, but Baskett could be a decent sleeper too.

I agree as well that Donte's value should stay the same. If he stays healthy, he's probably not less than top 20 WR in fantasy.

Good deal for the Pats. I don't understand why Stallworth was willing to sign what is basically a one year contract. There were plenty of other teams interested in him I wonder why he couldn't have done better then that with all the money that is being thrown around this year.

So much for Wes Welker being even the #2 receiver. :-b

ESPN has corrected its report regarding the deal.. it now states that the contract only guarantees one year -- gives Stallworth and the Patriots flexibility.
