Keyshawn

Postby nsulham » Tue Sep 14, 2004 9:30 pm

Key was the most targeted player in Week 1, meaning he was thrown to more than anyone else (15 looks), continuing a nice carryover from preseason.

It's obvious as long as Vinny is standing upright, Keyshawn will be a pretty nice option at WR, particularly point-per-reception leagues.

But, do you guys see this as a trend? Will Key continue to get 8-10 catches a game? Granted the TD's might not be there but you can't deny he's getting the ball.

Thoughts?

i dunno, any given game dallas could be ahead and they go straight to clock draining runs. I just don't see dallas passing that much and if they do, who frickin knows who will benefit. Keyshawn shouldn't be on the WW, but I wouldn't trade the farm for him.

I wouldn't say that they are going to be throwing the ball 50 times every game so I think those #s that he posted are a bit inflated. That being said, he and Vinny have always clicked so I don't see why it wouldn't continue.

Do you have a link to the 3 of times targetted?

I don't see why you can't expect numbers at least approaching that neighborhood all year. Keyshawn always gets targeted by QBs because he takes pride in the fact that he loves going over the middle, and doesn't mind taking big hits. Parcells will continue calling routes into the soft middle of zones, which means not too many yards after catch, and usually a headache for the receiver, but a ton of possession-type catches. Couple that with the fact that Dallas sucks really bad and will be playing from behind all year (hence throwing a lot) and he should have a decent yardage/low TD year, much like the rest of his career.

Vinny looked for him a lot in the preseason. And while I don't expect as much passing in the games to come Keyshawn should still get a good deal of looks. I doubt Keyshawn's abilities but he may see enough passes his way to put up respectable totals.
