Despite the fact that offensive coordinator Mike Martz seems to have something against him, I think the first WR worth rostering is Johnny Knox. Knox has been rallying back in camp after the early season Roy Williams love. The Bears wide receiver coach has said nothing but good things about Knox, and it is hard to think that the offense would rather pass to a wide out who came into camp out of shape than one who has been excelling. Williams will likely take away enough targets from Knox to limit his value, but not completely. Knox received 100 targets last year and I don't see him eclipsing that mark this year, going in to his third year of NFL experience Knox could produce well with the opportunity he's given.

While the upside of both Greg Little and Brandon Gibson is alluring, I like the situation of Arrelious Benn a little more. The Bucs are an up and coming offense under Josh Freeman, and there should be targets to go Benn's way. All signs out of camp are pointing to a full recovery from an ACL surgery. Beyond just health, Benn has looked good practicing with the first team. Brandon Gibson and Steve Smith (PHI) will have to share too many targets amongst their respective receiving corps. Greg Little has an unproven QB and not the best supporting cast. Edge to Benn.

Certainly Knox.

After that it's kind of a crap shoot. I guess Benn.

I would say Knox and Benn. Knox will be the primary target in Chicago and Benn will get a lot of passes thrown his way with a balanced offensive attack and extra attention given to Mike Williams and Winslow. Hope I could help.

Knox and flip a coin. If I had to pick it would probably be Benn but an uninspiring argument could be made for any of the other.

Knox and Steve Smith

Knox is a lock and Steve Smith is in a really potent Philly offense, and I see him picking up some TDs while Maclin and DJax get all the coverage.

thanks for the help on mine!

I agree with the rest, Knox is the obvious choice. Then it's really all speculation, but I would go with Benn or Smith. Leaning towards Benn.


thanks for the help with mine.
