Baltimore Ravens - 1) Anquan Boldin, 2) Derrick Mason, 3) Donte' Stallworth
Surprised to see Stallworth got a 2nd chance. Not shocked. Just surprised.

Buffalo Bills - 1) Lee Evans, 2) James Hardy, 3) N/A
:-o

Dallas Cowboys - 1) Miles Austin, 2) Dez Bryant, 3) Roy Williams
Heard talk that RWill should improve his play now that he has some new motivation with Dez Bryant in town, but I'mnot buying it.

Detroit Lions - 1) Calvin Johnson, 2) Nate Burleson, 3) N/A
Would like to see DET get these two going this year. Not because I'm a DET fan. I just like some of the DET fans around the cafe here.

Green Bay Packers - 1) Greg Jennings, 2) Donald Driver, 3) James Jones
B-)

Indianapolis Colts - 1) Reggie Wayne, 2) Pierre Garcon, 3) Austin Collie
Best Trio from A-I.

Miami Dolphins - 1) Brandon Marshall, 2) Davone Bess, 3) Brian Hartline
If Henne plays as well as I think he can, BM could have another great year.

New England Patriots - 1) Randy Moss, 2) Julian Edelman, 3) Wes Welker
When Welker comes back, this trio competes for top WRs in the league.

New Orleans Saints - 1) Marques Colston, 2) Robert Meachem, 3) Devery Henderson
Great trio, but tough to play them in Fantasy.

New York Jets - 1) Braylon Edwards, 2) Jerricho Cotchery, 3) Santonio Holmes
Lotsa drops in the NYC.

Philadelphia Eagles - 1) DeSean Jackson, 2) Jeremy Maclin, 3) Jason Avant
B-) (I'm biased)

Pittsburgh Steelers - 1) Hines Ward, 2) Mike Wallace, 3) N/A
Didn't realize Wallace found the end zone 6 or 8 times last year until I checked.

Tampa Bay Bucs - 1) Arrelious Benn, 2) Mike Williams, 3) Reggie Brown
Anyone know these guys? ;-7

Dude, gotta disagree with the Vikes being that low. We has all 3 in the top 50 last year and Rice and Harvin are still kids that should take another step forward this year with Favre back.

Anyone know these guys? ;-7


Brown: Obviously most recognize this name, extreme flop in Philly. Hoping for a second chance.

I could really care less about Brown, but the other 2 rookies could be big impacts.

Benn: Former Illinois WR, has great size for his position and displays elite speed that most coming in with him didn't possess. He was a starter since his opening game freshman year that comes with experience not only on the offensive side of the ball, but also with special teams. He went for over 2200 (a single yard short of quad 2's, 2221) recieving, while averaging almost 14 yards per catch. He not only can receive, but also ran for 3TDs. He returned well over 40,000 kickoffs while averaging on the plus side of 23 per. His draft stock was killed because of one huge problem; the 2009 Illinois squad was anything but good, Benn was the main target and all the D's knew it, thus the double and triple teaming started. Yes you say 'good receivers will beat that', but it also doesn't help when you have Juice Williams (who should never QB another game, please) throwing you, or rather trying to hit a 10yard window around you. If he polishes his route running he will be a GEM, he has all the physical tools to make it, and 4.4-40 doesn't hurt any.

Williams: The Cuse product has some series maturing to do. His off the field issues were frequent and then to top it he was suspended for all of 2008 because of academics. If he could get his head straight he would be very sweet WR play for Tampa. He, like Benn, has nice size (although Williams needs to beef up a bit) and great speed (4.45-40) and likewise with Benn has soft hands that are not afraid to fight the defenders for position and take a hit on a play for a ball in traffic. Unlike Benn, he runs very crisp and sharp routes all around; from shifty moves, to disguising routes to finding the open pockets, he does it all well.

Benn and Williams are a lot alike, Tampa should have very good speed and physical agility at the wideout slot. Good young guys that could be fruitful for years to come. Bottom Lines: Benn needs route running help and he will be a top option in terms of pure skill; Williams-needs to screw his head on right and realize that his talent and physical attributes could return him a long term job in the NFL.

Berrian is a glorified Stallworth, Harvin can produce when he's on the field but those migraines didn't magically disappear when he went to the NFL. I've never been a Rice beleiver, but he did produce. Oh, and it hasn't been determined if Favre will return. Even if he does, Chilly is coach. Those last 2 parts don't factor into this. Rice produced well and his team is ranked accordingly- he was 12th in non-PPR, I rank the team 15th, largely due to what's behind him.

I probably stand alone here, but I think the Bears WRs are vastly underrated. Knox and Hester should be great fits in Martz system (assumption being that Hester will learn how to run to areas better than specific routes) and Aromashodu showed big play ability. Like most WRs trios, QB play is going to be crucial to their success. Those also underrated due to QB question marks are the Vikings most of all. No Favre, no way. This is the Favre delimma. Favre signs and they have great success, but at the cost of not addressing their long term QB problem. 9ers have a very good triad, if only they get some good QB play.
As for my Leos, their Trio consists of Megatron and, and, ...,Bueller? Bueller? (Aging Burleson missing OTAs due to some injury)

Re: Top 3 WR by team

I was in shock at first with how high the Bears were ranked but looking at it, seems right to me. Teams top 4 could all definitely take a step forward(I include Bennett in there as well since he'll see plenty of time). Needless to say I'm excited for this Bears season to finally be able to watch a decent offense.

In Tampa I really like Benn, Bazzy gives a really solid breakdown of him but you left off how difficult he is to bring down in the open field. He's a very strong wr and runs hard, he was used in the Illini option a lot but that o-line was wretched last season.

I'd be worried about the Chiefs dropping down in these rankings after teammates beat the crap out of D Bowe for spilling the beans on the women waiting in hotel rooms for them. Not cool Bowe.

Sounds like what Calvin Johnson had to deal with- an elite talent got completely shut out with the triple teams.

True, true. But this will be completely different in the NFL this year, seens how Tampa actually has other options on the field besides him. Also, I can't say this enough, Juice Williams is TERRIBLE. I do NOT know how they could justify starting this douche. He was the sickest excuse for a QB I've seen in a while, his arm strength was average at best, and thats was his best quality. His accuracy was horrid, would have been better just running the wildcat every snap and having the RB play QB too.

I really see Benn as a come from no where player (a lot know his name, but are way down playing him because he plays for Tampa, wrong thing to do). I haven't posted on the next player to go in the draft, but for me its Benn all the way. He has amazing upside, and has a bit more talent surrounding him now in Tampa then he ever did in college. Look for this guys name on all of your draft boards, major impact.
