This is virtually impossible to predict, but I have a hard time believing that Lynch will post a YPC average worse than 3.8. But, even if he does, Evans has shown that he can thrive in an environment with no legitimate rushing attack.

I completely disagree. The Bills paid a ton of money to get ex-Redskin Derrick Dockery, who has incredible size, surprising agility, and at 26 years old, is still improving. They also brought in Langston Walker from Oakland, who is an improvement at right tackle.

Sure, Losman's completion percentage was lower than McNair's, but it was higher than Tom Brady's, Carson Palmer's, and Jay Cutler's. And no, it doesn't always translate into good fantasy performance, but we're talking about WR fantasy performance here, not QB's. I'm just showing you that Losman isn't nearly as incompetent as you make him out to be, and he's entirely capable of getting the ball to his star receiver.

If you've got reason to believe he's gonna go for 1000/8 sure lets put him up there. I think he'll stay somewhere around 900/6 like last year. Maybe if he could stay healthy he belongs here. He could certainly outperform some of these guys if they bust, but I don't think Ward is on this level anymore.

I think the second group starts with Housh/Roy, in either order, then:
Colston
Fitz
Driver
Walker
Boldin
Plax
DJax

I'm reading a lot of stuff about how Housh will be the best WR in Cinci for fantasy purposes this year. I'm pretty high on him and will probably take him ahead of Roy. If I can get Housh, Roy, Colston, or Fitz as my WR1 I'd be pretty satisfied considering I've all but given up on using an early enough pick to get Marvin, Chad, Steve, Wayne, Owens, or Holt.

I agree with taking Housh ahead of RW for the reason of consistent qb play and offensive firepower

Not to beat a dead horse, but I have to say I'm a bit surprised to see Coles ranked so lowly (or not at all) on so many of these lists. His upside may be limited, but so is his downside, and I'd as soon go with consistency as potential in my WR2, especially considering how far Laveranues is falling in drafts.

As well as Cotchery did last year Coles was still good for 90+/1100 and half a dozen scores. That's a solid WR2 and a fantastic WR3, and if he puts up similar numbers in '07 (which is a fair bit more likely than the rook topping his given the bust rate on sophomore wideouts) he could be the SOD at wideout in your draft.

Ain't missed a game since his rookie year either.
