its very simple.... Moss is the #1 reciever where he plays, and Plax is the #2 reciever where he plays... Plax is just the compliment to Hines to draw away some coverage in the secondary to prevent double teams.. Kind of like how McCariens will be used in NY for Moss... Sure Burress will get the occaisional look, but Moss is the main guy.... and the only reason why moss didnt do even better than he did last season, was because towards the end of the season he started getting doubled because there was no real #2 gut in NY to compliment him... This year wont be the case though, with McCariens drawing away so much of the coverage.... Expect Moss to have a fantastic season..

McCareins will do better than S. Moss this year if he can learn the system. Maybe he's a slight notch slower but he returned kicks as well and he's larger and more physical.

Burress is a supreme talent, but has the much higher head-case factor. Therefore, I'd rate Moss a slight edge.

With a good season, McCareins should only help Santana by drawing off some of those double teams. Both will be solid if Penny stays healthy.

I'd take Moss hands down. Until Plex can prove it, I'm not going to hop on his bandwagon.

Moss is one of the top 10 fantasy WRs in the game, Burress is not.

I can't figure out how Burress, who all during the offseason was ridiculed with being a fluke, a one-year wonder, is now all of a sudden a supreme talent to the guy who has only gotten better each year, and has just as much (1) great fantasy football years under his belt.

Also, contract years dont mean a thing. For every case of a player stepping it up during a contract year, there's one of a player having an off year. It's about as predictable as flipping a coin.

I also think moss is better like everyone else, but I think he will have a down year...he hasn't been 100% healthy in preseason and they've got McCareins now, and Becht, and I also think Curtis Martin will have a good year (1000yd,9-11td) so Moss's numbers could be down

Santana in a heartbeat. Plaxico would be a good #3 WR for a team...but in my opinion too inconsistent for a #2 guy.

I would go with Santana, but Plax is not a one-year wonder.

He has 2 1000 yd seasons with at least 6 TDs. This happening in the 2 of first 3 years leads me to believe that last year was more of a fluke than Plax was.
