Which WR will have a bounce-back year?

Postby Wesley Walker » Thu Aug 12, 2004 9:56 am

Marty Booker (Chi)

Donald Driver (GB)

David Boston (Mia)

Curtis Conway (SF)

All these guys were studs in 2002/2003 -- top fifteen fantasy WRs anyway. All four of them stunk it up last season: Conway most spectatcularly; Boston most laughably; Booker had his moments but had LONG dry spells; and Driver had an injury with which to contend.

Just a year ago many of us had high expectations for these chumps -- who will bounce back in 2004/2005?

Well, first off -- David Boston is going to miss the season due to a knee injury from last Friday. Therefore, he won't have much of a comeback season. :-t :~(

Conway is supposedly buried on the Niners' depth chart. Expect them to go young and toy around with different scenarios. Overall, they know they're not in contention for a Super Bowl berth, so they'll give their young receivers as much playing time to gain experience for next season.

Driver could bounce back, but I still think that Javon Walker has the skills, potential and speed to be an elite WR. I think he'll continue to emerge as Favre's go-to receiver and Driver will have to battle Ferguson for the rest of Favre's offerings.

This leaves Booker as my main option out of your list to have a bounceback year. Thomas Jones should be a decent option on the ground, and will take some pressure off Grossman and the Bears passing game. As Grossman matures under center, Booker will reap the benefits. I think he'll increase in value as the season progresses.

Eric Moulds (Buf) - He was retched last year. But that is his motif. He sucks on odd years and is good on even years (ala 2004)

Marty Booker in a landslide. He caught 197 passes in two seasons, then suffered through injuries and inept QB play for 2003.

I was semi-big on Driver a few weeks ago, but I'm not so sure now. He'd be #2 on my list.

Boston is out for the season, so I can be pretty sure in saying it's not him.

:-b

I thought about Curtis Conway for about 5 minutes when he signed with SFO, then I remembered he was inducted into the mason's hall of fame with those stone hands of his.

Rod Smith will reemerge as a top 20 WR.

Of the guys listed, Book will have the best year. But Boston could finish top 5..(oh thats right hes injured :-b ) Look for stallworth to have a good year out of the guys not listed. Peerless Price too.

None of those guys will bounce back. If i had to chose one it would be Booker, but don't expect anything great from him. Rod Smith is gonna have a good season, and so is Peerless Price.

There are a number of WRs not already on the list that I have my eye on. One not already mentioned is Plaxico Burress. He's too big of a red zone target (and too athletic) not to bounce back if the Steelers can get more consistency from their QB situation.
