Fanball wrote:The Falcons’ new high-profile wide receiver, Peerless Price, expects to improve on last year’s numbers after getting used to his new quarterback Mike Vick. “It’s a little different,” Price said on the Falcons team web site. “You’ve got to get used to it. I’ve never played with a left-handed quarterback, so the spin is a little different on the ball…I just want to have better statistics than I did last year. Last year I had 94 catches; this year I’m shooting for 100. Last year I had around 1,250 yards, this year I’m shooting for around 1,400 this year. Last year I had nine touchdowns and I want to have double digits this year; I don’t want to set a specific goal, I just want to have double digits.” Price also commented that he’s happy with his new team and its rigorous off-season conditioning program—which is known to be one of the most demanding in the league.
We hope Price’s hard work off the field translates into big numbers on the field in 2003. Moreover, we think we speak for all fantasy players when we say we'd love to see him reach the receiving goals he outlined. Vick will give Peerless his opportunity for double-digit touchdowns; Price just needs to prove he’s a legitimate number-one wideout.
Gonna be good to watch Vick to Price this year.
