I think plax is a good one too. He is a bit of a head case, but I think he will pull it togther for a rebound this year (for a big contract).

Yea, I like Burress and Moulds to be the big bounceback guys, with K-Rob probably have a nice season as well.

I really like Rod Smith to have a bounce back season. Smith only had 874 yards and 3 td's last year. However, Shannon Sharpe has retired, Clinton Portis is in Washington and Ed McCaffrey retired (not that his 19 catches were a factor though). You gotta think that Plummer will have a decent season if he stays healthy. 20+ td passes???? Who is he going to throw to? Who knows if Ashley Lelie will have the breakthrough season many think he is capable of. Darius Watts is a rookie and is simply just not going to put up huge numbers. Rod Smith has to be the one wide receiver in Denver that is going to replace most of those 8 td's that Sharpe had last year.

I like Plaxico this season as well... I just hope he doesn't get off to another fast start and then watch Pittsburgh abandon the vertical game again. Allegedly, he is in the best shape of his career and yes, he is playing for moolah. I think the new rules regarding contact are also going to play into his favor... that's what he bitched about all last year. Plax, you seem to have gotten your wish... now let's see 1200 and 9 outta ya this year, dammit !

12 team, H2H, hyper-performance, keeper (5)

Start 9: QB, 1/2RB, 2/3/4WR, 1/2TE, K, D/ST

Keepers: Deuce, Rudi, CJ, Plax, Foster

Booker is my pick.

I seem to grab this guy in the 8th or 9th round in every freaking draft. Pretty incredible for a guy that averages 100 catches when healthy. I predict Booker makes a run at the top10 this season, falling just short of paydirt. Easily one of the best WR values in the draft this year.

Booker is the choice here. In the type of offense that they are trying to run and with Grossman now firmly entrenched as the starter, I expect him to round back into form.

Conway is actually rapidly climbing the 49ers depth chart with a nice camp so far. Don't be surprised if he's not the #2 guy when the season starts. Currently his #3 with a bullet.

What do you think of my receivers, I drafted Toomer, K-Rob, Porter, and Horn. The first 3 had down years last season, how do you think they will do this year.

Toomer--The entire Giants O was a downer last year. Can't get worse, can it? Could be top 15.

K-Rob--All of the potential in the world if he gets over dropsies can be #1 in a high powered offense. Top 10 material.

Porter--Should be healthy and benefit from Gannon being back and a new regime. Could be surprise top 15.

Horn--Starting to slip but still could put up another year of big #s. Potential top 10.

All guys I would be happy with.
