pickup Gaffney, Gibson, or Antonio Brown?

Postby thepsychic » Tue Sep 13, 2011 5:54 pm

Which WR do you think will be best this season?

Gaffney - Washington looks like they'll be throwing a lot this season. He had 7 targets from Rex, but only 3 catches - 1 for a TD
Gibson - Had only 5 targets in week 1 but should get more targets w/Amendola out
Antonio Brown - Had 9 targets in week 1, but only had 2 catches and 14 yards. Has big play potential if Big Ben keeps targeting him

Gibson might have more upside for the year, but I'm uncertain about that. What I am certain of is that Arizona just gave up 400+ yards passing to a rookie making his debut and they are a West coast team traveling East to play a QB who just threw for 300+ yards of his own. Right now, Arizona is looking like an extremely favorable matchup for WRs, and for that reason, I think you grab Gaffney, not Gibson, at least for this week.

Brown. When facing decisions involving low tier/WW caliber players, always pick the one who has the best chance to break out. Antonio with 9 targets shows that Ben may be looking to him more often and that's the kind of receiver I would prefer on my bench.

Yeah I myself like brown. He had a good preseason and got a lot of targets. Pitt isn't gonna play Balt every game. Wallace could get double teams and Hines is getting old. Go for upside.

I agree grab Gaffney for this week. But I believe Gibson has the most upside this season. Antonio Brown has the most long-term potential.

I'm shocked that Brown wasn't drafted
