Evans is too inconsistant for me. 1 week he'll go insane and single handedly win your fantasy matchup for you then he'll disappear for weeks at a time.

Boldin
-----
Walker
Evans.

Boldin is even farther above these 2 if its PPR.

Walker and Evans were the only 2 left in their "tier" with just a few picks before mine in the 3rd or 4th round (can't remember which). I was so glad that 2 guys before me took Evans and left me Walker.

edit:
evans put up half his tds and nearly half his yards in 3 games last year. not sure i really want that kind of inconsistency. boldin had a down year, and walker was just getting healthy, learning a new system, and learning a new qb. i suppose it's a matter of opinion, but, my opinion is walker and boldin.


Would you put a guy like Chad Johnson ahead of these guys?

Not like I'm arguing this fact at all, I'd still take Boldin on top of these other 2 guys.

chad had an inconsistent year last year as well, but he's more proven as a fantasy star wr. i'd rank chad above these guys. not much ahead of javon. i really like javon this year. and i think chad has a bounce back year as well.

One thing to also consider is the strength of schedule.

Boldin faces the 12th easiest pass schedule in all of the NFL.
Walker faces the 4th hardest pass schedule.
Evans faces the 11th hardest pass schedule.

I would go Evans here. He reminds me alot of Steve Smith. He also ended last year with 4 straight touchdowns. If you only take the 2nd half of last season as a guage for this year, it's a no-brainer. Evans is an established #1 wideout with world-class speed and his relationship with Losman is similar to Steve Smith's relationship with Delhomme. He is also the best athelete of the 3 and creates the most mismatches. He is also the only one of the 3 that can consistently break a double team.

I would definetly argue that boldin is the best athlete. Evans is incredibly fast, but boldin is fast, breaks tackles, makes great catches and can throw the ball 60 yards in the air (not that this matters too much for fantasy). Also, Boldin doesn't have to break a double team because he has an established receiver on the other side unlike both evans and walker. This may take away some of his targets but leads to more single coverage.

Boldin's the most likely to have an aneurysm during a game, though. Did you guys see the way he was freaking out over minor problems in the last preseason game? It was actually uncomfortable to watch.

I drafted this week and picked Evans in the 5th round. Evans has a bond with Losman that is similar to Steve Smith and Delhomme. I don't know what his Yards after Catch(YAC) is, but I'd guess it's #1 out of the 3 recievers discussed. Viewing the 1st 5 weeks of the schedule, it looks like Losman will be tossing it up as they should be behind, so I think this will only help get Evans off to a good start. And we all know how he plays towards years end in the fantasy playoffs.
I'd put Boldin as the #2 here. 8-10 TD's. He'll put up similar #'s to Fitz, and either one could end up on the short end of the stick when it comes to TD's.
Walker, I have at 3rd. He may have a few big plays from busted coverages and I have him projected at 8-9 TDs.

Where do Housh and Driver fit in on this list? I have my pick of these five and may get two after the turn (Rds 3 and 4 of a 14 teamer). Who should I take? Duece is also out there. Currently I have Maroney and Harrison...
