Which of these young WR is least likely to break out?

Postby BrewCrew6 » Tue Sep 04, 2007 10:46 pm

This is kind of a team management question, but Ill keep it vague enough.

I need to get rid of one of these guys, Anthony Gonzalez, Demetrius Williams, Jacoby Jones, or James Jones. Which one is least likely to break out THIS year? I like the Jones boys, so it's likely going to be Gonzalez or Williams. I could see Gonzalez posting solid numbers if Wayne/Harrison were to get hurt. Williams I think has potential but it will likely be limited by the Baltimore offense and Steve McNair. Any thoughts?

Demetrius Williams. All of the other guys have better situations, in my opinion.

The Jones WRs are potential #2 WRs without injuries to starters on their respective teams. The other 2 are #3 WRs, so there's half. The #3 WR in Indy vs. the #3 WR in Baltimore, its pretty easy to guess who has more upside and chance of breaking out. Demetrius is the odd man out.

Demetrius is the best out of that group that could "break out". Partly because he isn't a rookie. I think Gonzalez is the weakest link, drop that bum.

I disagree, D. Williams has a slow grinding offense that limits opportunities. Drop the man from Baltimore

I think D. Williams has the best potential. Mason is getting hurt and has been hurt. Everyone says Clayton is posied for a breakout but he was in consistent all last year. Williams has just as much ablity as Clayton. So IMO if you like clayton's ability you have to like Williams. In additon, if any ind wr got hurt it would be hard for me to think they would start a rookie. I think Moorehead would get the call because he played well last yr. D. William is the 2nd best WR in Bal.

FYI: Koren Robinson is coming back to GB and so is Driver. J.Jones could potentially end up the 4th wr. Robinson is not in shape now but when he is, he can play......

i think the Jones' are both for sure keepers, so I'd say its between Williams and Anthony.

You can't go by offense alone, look at Plaxico, Darrell Jackson and Lee Evans... All were top 10 in TDs Recpts last year despite their teams Pass Yds/Game being in the lower half of the league.

Anthony Gonzalez caught 6 passes for 67 (11.7 YPC) yards preseason... Williams 8 for 150 Yards (18.8 YPC) , last year (18 YPC)...

Williams is always a deep threat and was targeted 45 times last year.
Last year Indy's third reciever (not TEs or RB) was targeted only 16 Times!!

I'd drop Anthony

I've been nay-saying on Jacoby Jones since the start, so I'm sure you can guess who I'd drop.

I'd rank the players like this:
1. James Jones
2. D Williams
3. A Gonzalez
4. Jacoby Jones

You can't drop James Jones based on what the Packers have said about him coming out of training camp. Nor can you drop Gonzalez because not only is Peyton Manning throwing to him, but in a few years when Marvin finally decides to retire, he will be a starter with Peyton Manning throwing to him.

Williams and Jacoby Jones are the two you should consider because their offenses are not stellar. Personally, I think it depends on personal preference as to which of the two is better, because Jacoby has a better opposite wide receiver, but the offense he has around him is arguably worse, and Williams has shown some talent at the elite level already. I like Willams' chances this year more than Jacoby's though.
