Good news for Rogers owners

Lions: Rogers looks good, shoulder passes test

THE NEWS
Lions' wide receiver Charles Rogers caught three passes for 56 yards against the Steelers on Saturday in his first game since breaking his collarbone in week five of last season. He even landed hard on the shoulder while making one of those receptions. "I never had any doubts about my shoulder," Rogers told reporters after the game. "I played fearless, just like always, and had fun."

OUR VIEW
Some fantasy owners will ignore Rogers on draft day due to injury concerns. Don't be one of those owners. Rogers is a playmaker and the addition of rookie wideout Roy Williams to the Lions' offense will only help his cause.

Rogers did look good, he caught the passes that went his way efficiently. If anything, I didn't like how he got very minimal YAC each time. I drafted him in the early 7th round in one of my 12 team leagues, and I'm glad I did. There shouldn't be any hesitation over drafting him because of a collarbone injury. The Lions were pretty cautious by putting him on IR last year.

I love Rogers this year, he can put up numbers comparable to Andre Johnson this year and you can get him 2 rounds lower. If you draft him as your 2nd WR, you'll already have 2 good backs, a good WR, Tony G, and a McNabb-like QB. That is a winning lineup in my opinion.

As someone who was burned by Rogers last year, he just seems kinda brittle to me. If he falls far enough I'll probably grab him but as my #2? I don't know if I've got those kinda balls O:-)

I wasn't real crazy about how long that injury took to heal, I agree. But I think I'll take a flyer on him if he falls to me in the 7th or 8th rounds like CC said. Maybe even the 6th, it depends on what position in the draft I'm in and who I already have.

i've had a broken collarbone before. once healed the bone actually becomes thicker and stronger (or so i've heard), so a collarbone injury is about the best season ending injury a player could hope for
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good

You read my mind, that is exactly how I feel about Rogers. He's the cheaper version of Andre Johnson this year. Rogers may be even more effective than Johnson because he has a better supporting cast and is in an easier division.

Rogers can be very good...But as someone who has watched him since he was in high school, he is very injury prone.
