which young WR do you take a flyer on?

Postby ravendan » Wed Aug 22, 2012 5:32 pm

Of the following rookie, or young unproven WRs, which one would you take in the last few rounds of a draft. Any of these guys has a potential to blow up. How do you rank them?

Alshon Jeffery
Rueben Randle
Jonathan Baldwin
Brian quick
Brandon Lafell
kendall Wright
Justin Blackmon
Michael Floyd

I like them something in a loose order like this:

Jeffery
Randle
LaFell
Wright (Only here if Britt misses significant time)
Baldwin (I'd swap him and Wright if Britt comes back)
Quick
Wash between Floyd/Blackmon currently.

Basing on redraft PPR

Brandon Lafell - He's #1 by a bunch to me
Jonathan Baldwin - Think he takes a big step
Justin Blackmon- All about how much Gabbart limits him

I took a flier on Justin Blackmon this year (round 11). I know it's one game, but he is at least building something with Gabbert who can only go up this year with the fact he at least has some targets to throw to this year. Lafell might be ok, but I think that Blackmon will emerge the same way AJ Green did last year.

Agree with LaFell - great run game and use of TEs will draw coverage closer to the box. With Smith drawing attention on one side LaFell will see a lot of single coverage. He has the athleticism to beat a corner one on one, and Newton actually has an arm.

Question Baldwin primarily because of QB play and he's bound to take a swing at a ref at some point. But the talent is obviously there.

Blackmon is the best WR in Jacksonville.

Jeffrey has a lot of the same appeal LaFell has -- solid QB, great run game, and great WR opposite him. But as a rookie I expect a little slower growth curve.

Randle - if (when?) Nicks goes down again, Randle could climb this list.

I am curious why everyone seems to have Floyd at the bottom of the list. I realize his QB situation is shaky at best. However, he is opposite one of the best WR's in the league. he seems to be able to get himself open, and there is no one else in Arizona to take targets away.

Mainly because he hasn't been able to beat Andre Roberts for the spot yet. That kind of alarms me. He is currently 4th on the depth chart

have read some murmurs of Floyd not being in good shape, basicly not ready to go. Its hard to come in soft and make it up when you are a vet with a proven track record. Rook has no tape. Oh, and looks like no QB too. Staying away.

Love the spot Jeffery is in. Thinking a new OC levels out the playing field a tad and not having to digest and Martz playbook has to help.
Also watching the Colts young WRs Hilton and Brazill. Luck looks legit and someone is going to be catching a lot of passes.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Emannual Sanders - PIt

Walace is still not signed and Hines Ward is gone. Sanders was coming on last year before injury. Has a ton of talent and will be the slot WR in 3 wr sets even with Wallace back.
