Coles, He's the easy #1 in NY and caught 91 passes last year. Moss didn't get near the production that Coles had and I don't see him doing a lot better than last year with the emergence of Cooley into an good go to option.

I think Coles because of stablitity. Penny is healthy for a change. They have a good Oline. A good receiver on the other side to draw attention. The only thing that might hurt him is a lack of a running game, Jones should help out in that department this year!

Moss...well, he's on the Redskins. Nuff said. :-b Young QB still learning. Iffy Oline. Nobody on the other side of the field (unless they sign McCardy). Only thing he has going for him is what should be one of the best 1-2 backs in the league to draw some attention

In a redraft, Coles. You know what you are getting with him, 80+ catches, 1000 yards, 5 TDs or so.

I think Moss has a higher ceiling (see his 2005 year - 82 catches, 1400 yards, 9 TDs). I like him better long term, assuming Campbell develops like I think he will.

I agree. Coles is predictable. The QB situation with Campbell is too questionable. I see Moss as a risky pick this year.

I'll buck the trend and go with Moss. Moss has a higher TD ceiling than Coles. The big thing I like about Moss this year is the Redskins D is awfull and they should get into a couple of shoot outs. Also, Campbell is young but he played pretty weel last year. If he keeps improving and the D doesn't it could be a very good fantasy situation. The only downside with Moss is he is boom or bust sometimes. 3 TD's vs. Jax, 3 in the other 15 games.

Moss probably has a few more question marks but I'd still take him. He has shown that he can score double digit TD's.

I would take Coles hands down if for nothing else that he's proven he can do it more than Moss has. Look at Moss's numbers over the years, one great season with one pretty good season and a bunch of mediocre seasons. Only been over 70 receptions twice and never over 85.

2002 - 30 rec for 433 yds and 4 TDs
2003 - 74 rec for 1105 yds and 10 TDs
2004 - 45 rec for 838 yds and 5 TDs
2005 - 84 rec for 1483 yds and 9 TDs
2006 - 55 rec for 790 yds and 6 TDs

He's had one season in his career where he actually started all 16 games. I don't think he's really proven he can do it on any consistent basis at all.

Look at what Coles has done in this same span:

2002 - 89 rec for 1264 yds and 5 TDs
2003 - 82 rec for 1204 yds and 6 TDs
2004 - 90 rec for 950 yds and 1 TD
2005 - 73 rec for 845 yds and 5 TDs
2006 - 91 rec for 1098 yds and 6 TDs

He has not missed one game in the last 6 years and has had 70 or more receptions in each of his last 5 years...I'll take that any day over someone like Moss especially with the Jets improving and Pennington now a year removed from all those injury concerns.
