Great, thanks to all these Night Ranger references "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" is now bouncing around in my skull.

Make It Stop. :~(

Wonderful, excellent, superb writing style. The style you write with is my favorite to write with as well. It's entertaining & it's what sold me on picking up the Fan Ball Fantasy Guide this year @ the news stand. I had no intentions of buying old information that I know already by reading articles & analysis in the Cafe, but those guys are really funny.

Is anyone truly strong enough to pull that off?

Oh and I'm a very loyal reader. The pop culture references and player nicknames have to be useful as mnemonic devices, if nothing else.


I'm convinced that if Meachem can return to camp on time and prove to the Saints staff that his knee is at full-strength he has an excellent shot at breaking camp as the No. 2 opposite Colston. To me, Henderson operates best out of the slot. He's lightinging quick downfield and can outrace just about any CB in the league, but he isn't a sharp route runner and doesn't possess natural hands or size (5-foot-11).

Henderson's weaknesses are Meachem's strengths. Physically, Meachem has the size, strength and YAC burst to be a prime target for Drew Brees. However, like Henderson, he does suffer from lapses in concentration and his route running ability is far from stellar. Scouts have compared him to a raw Anquan Boldin and if that doesn't sound appealing than Giselle Bundchen isn't shaggable.

Time will tell, but by mid-season I think Meachem will be a fairly consistent WR3 in deeper formats and a solid bench asset in shallow 12-team leagues. If I was looking for an upside receiver in the midnight hour of my draft, Meachem would be a superb choice based on his physical talents and given the explosive nature of the Saints offense.

I think that is a very solid assessment of Meachem. As a UT alum, I watched him play every game in college and most of Hendersons games at LSU as well.

Physically, Meachem has the size, strength and YAC burst to be a prime target for Drew Brees. However, like Henderson he does suffer from lapses in concentration and his route running ability is far from stellar.

I think his YAC is the most important factor with Meach. Comparing him to Boldin is right on, because he is great when he can catch the ball behind or right at the line he has the ability to make the first guy miss with what he calls his "Quick Turn" move. Almost has a bit of Steve Smith in him too in that respect(Not saying he will ever be that good!). He has great hands and speed as evidenced at the combine. While I agree his route running isnt as crisp as it should be, it isnt so unpolished that he cannot produce in the NFL right away.

Anyway....nice job with the article! ;-D

I'll agree with the article, I think 3rd round is the right time to buy WRs.

Not because of the WRs though, there are just less RBs I'd be satisfied with as a RB#2 this year. Why want to draft Marion Barber in the 3rd round when you can get Travis Henry in the 2nd? No big value near the end of round 3/beginning round 4 that I wanna drop picks on RBs. AT WR you may get lucky and snag a Terrell Owens, and there is a good chance you can get Roy Williams or Reggie Wayne type guys in the 3rd.
