Tyrone Calico what do you think?

I think Calico is on the verge of a 2002 Plaxico Burress-type season. Whether that comes this year or next remains to be seen. He has the size and speed to be an endzone target, and with an unproven new RB, McNair may be chucking up more redzone passes.

Calico is coming along nicely for someone who did not play WR. I expect him to emerge as a viable fantasy WR this year. He's an excellent value late.

Last year I was very high on calico. Not only does he have great size and speed, but he was the titans top red zone target for several weeks. It wasn't until he started dropping balls that he didn't get as many catches. I'm guessing he has worked on this and is poised for an even bigger season this year. I just grabbed him in my money and first and short (here at the cafe) leagues.

Alittle off topic, but is Calico a better option than Fitz or Driver?

Fitz is a Rook, with no Bolin or Shipp, and Driver is in a WRBC in GB...

I love Bennett there in Tenn. but Calico has so much more to offer that offense that I don't see how Calico can stay on the bench that much there. I'd look for him to put up at least what McCareins did last year and perhaps more as Bennett has been somewhat injury prone.

I like calico this year but for the person asking about larry fitz and driver I'd rate them fitz, calico, driver. for the ferguson guy I think there numbers will be comparable

I think Calico will have a pretty good year and definitely put up some touchdowns. It's hard to get Bennett out of the lineup when he is healthy because he is incredibly reliable - almost a poor man's Ed McCaffery (pre-leg break). I think Cal will put up numbers close to Furgeson this year but I also think Driver will have a bounceback year in GreenBay so there are a lot of hands vying for balls there in GB. I think Fitz could do pretty well but we have no idea how his QB will do so it's hard to rate him above Calico.

Calico is a year up on him, has McNair as a QB and will beat out Bennett...

IMO


umm, youre saying williams is competing with Charles? true, so Roy is the #2 at worst. Calico youre saying will beat out Bennett, but Mason is #1 there so Calico is the #2 at BEST.

Roy is no question the better option.
