Yeah - its between Walker and Stall.

I like Stall to break out this yr, but the real risk is his injury history. If he stays healthy, he will be a TD machine.

Nice to see we're in such agreement (5-5-5 once I voted) but very few vocal supporters of Lelie. So I'll say some stuff.

First, ngub12, Favre's strength is not an issue, but the injuries to his thumb have made every deep ball a jump ball, so he does work the short and middle routes more than he used to.

Second, Lelie will probably blossom if Plummer stays healthy all year. McCaffery and Sharpe have retired, and Rod Smith is long in the tooth. Lelie will be the vertical aspect of that offense, and 65-1000-8 is not out of the question at all.

Third, Stallworth has many targets to compter with. Horn, Deuce, Boo Williams, Pathon, and Henderson.

Just my take of course...

Out of these three, I like Walker. He was playing great and putting up good numbers at the end of last year. Of course Driver kind of did the same thing the year before then faded into oblivion.

Stallworth probably has the most 'upside', but as mentioned earlier has Horn to contend with. I can count on (less than) one hand the number of #2 WRs that have been fantasy standouts.

Lelie is in a great position to do well, but IMO has shown the least of the three between the lines.

Wouldn't that be disagreement? I would think 15-0-0 means we're all agreeing ;)

It was a tough choice between Stall and Javon but I chose Stall. Both have great upside and will eventually break out.

Yea, I think Nittany means that Brady spreads the ball around too much, and Dillon will also detract from the WR production in NE.

great observations poopah, but, if u look at game logs of last year, especially the last 8 weeks or so when favre's hand was of biggest concern, he actually was throwing bombs to walker.

check this link out...

pay attention to yards, tds, but expecially avg. per reception. i think mr favre is just fine throwing the deep ball. an offseason of recooperation will help too.

anyway, this is why my favorite to break out is walker. he really blossomed torwards the end of the season, and hes a beast (6-3 220), fast, and of those four wr's has the best qb throwing to him.
