You and I were the pair of guys that hyped him a bit in the rookie wide out thread. I watched this guy at Houston and he can really play. He was overlooked because of the school he played for, but he has skills. He is fast and runs good routes. Also, as you said he has no problems beating DBs with his speed or technique. I like Avery a lot going forward.
Basically, I wonder how those columnist in STL feel now
I remember those guys blasting him at the beginning of that thread I guess because they didn't know much about him...I wish I had jumped on him in more redrafts to be honest but rookie WR's tend to be up and down and I don't want to rely on one during the playoffs, but alot of dynasties he was getting passed over and he had great value.
As long as the STL offense still has playmakers outside of him, and Holt taking double coverages, he should continue to have a big games...Although his ceiling is higher then Royal's I believe because when Holt leaves STL(which I think he does soon) Avery takes over as the #1 guy then at that point who knows, but Royal will always be 2nd fiddle to Marshall in that offense.
