Megatron without a doubt. He's the absolutely number one on that team, other than Best/Leshoure, he'll lose very little looks to any of the #2 or lower WRs or Pettigrew. He's poised for a monstrous season with a healthy Stafford and an evolving running game. With Nicks, he's got Smith, Manningham, and Boss drawing looks, with a solid running game in the mix. I still think he'll get the majority of the looks (darn, I own Manningham in many leagues, if only it was him getting the looks. ) but he certainly won't be at the same level as Megatron imho. Good luck.

See, this is one thing I don't understand at all. Why does your bias toward a team reflect your view of opposing players? If anything you should have a stronger opinion of a player if he punishes your team regularly. I am another die-hard Lions fan, please stop laughing, which is why I think Favre is actually under-rated as a QB. If my team was ahead by 4 with 3 minutes to go the last QB I wanted to see on the opposing team was Brett; even more than Elway, Marino, Manning, or Montana.
Secondly, this may be easier for me as a Lion fan with them never being in contention for anything besides a #1 pick but you cheer for your team with your heart on Sunday and make Fantasy Football moves with your brain the rest of the week.
QB: BREES, Cutler RB: TURNER, MCGAHEE, R. JENNINGS, Leshoure, D. Williams, Hillman, Hunter, Dwyer WR: CRUZ, GARCON, Amendola, Edwards, D. Baldwin TE: GRAHAM
Being a Giants fan, I have just seen way too much inconsistency from both the team and individual players over the years. A bias and an unscientific one at that but still, from Phil Sims and late season collapses to Brandon Jacobs and Jason Seahorn's pants falling down in the Super Bowl, it's a tough bias to overcome.
Then there is just raw talent that is Megatron. The guy went from playing with a 1st string to 2nd string and then a THIRD string QB and did not miss a beat! A WR that is QB-proof! That alone is special. Throw in the fact that Stafford is coming back? Seems like a lot more safety and a lot more upside than Nicks.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa
He did say "probably".
I'd go Megatron here as well, but if I don't get him my very next pick is Nicks.
Talking tiers here. Calvin is in tier one, Nicks in two, with the mentioned players. For the record though, Nicks probably has a higher baseline. Stafford is going to get hurt, Eli probably not and Steve Smith may not play....
