I think that's a good set of expectations considering their talents- Walter takes the dump-off, across the middle passes, Jones is the speedy sideline threat, and the backup TE maintains his value.
logan wrote:my issue with Walter is the guy is just to inconsistent week to week. Last year he had 9 games with 50 yards or fewer and of those 9 he only added a TD to the total once. Of those 9 7 were under 40 yard performances and they were spaced almost on an every other week basis till the final 3 week of the season. He is potentially worth picking up in a deep league if he is available for some added depth but he isn't a guy I would care to rely on as a week to week starter.
Good points. Made me want to look at the stats in-depth. His best year's by far were 08 and 07-
08- 899y, 8TDs
07- 800y, 4TDs
Problems- In 08, only one game over 100y, and 4 of 8 TDs in 2 games. In 07, only one game over 100 yards. That every-other-game thing logan pointed out hurts. Another thing- a 146y, TD game in week one of the 08 fantasy playoffs may have encouraged owners to play him the rest of the way. A combined 25 yards receiving week 15 and 16 would have killed teams who did that.
Walter is a WR3 platoon-mate.
