I guess it would depend on who is "out there". I picked him (and Watts) up in a couple leagues but I wouldn't expect starting numbers out of either. I have them as emergency backups.

"out there" means some guys that have been putting up way better numbers then he has. I really can't name names unfort. right now.. too many people in my league are listening.

I would stash Lelie as a #4. Watts as a #5 or #6. I like Watts for next year but I think too much has been made of preseason. I expect Lelie to put up better numbers than Watts this season and he should hold onto the starting job. Watts is a great pickup in dynasty leagues though.

History shows that not too many #2 WR's crack 1,000 yards. Those that do are on high-octane, pass heavy offenses. Is Denver a high-octane pass heavy offense? Not really. Especially with Watts challenging him. I wouldn't expect more than 800 yards and 6 TD's.

Something else to consider is that Plummer just isn't that great of a passer. He never has been. Struggles to throw the out with authority, and relies more on making plays with his scrambling ability. I think when he needs a key play he will look to Rod Smith first. Last I heard they said Plummer had lost confidence in Lelie, and Watts was dazzling everybody. Personally, I don't see either Lelie or Watts doing much this year.

I'll go against everyone here and say Lelie will top 1000 yards and have 7+ TD's and be the Broncos leading WR.

And everyone will be laughing that they thought Darius Watts would be taking his job.
