First and foremost I hope so, realistically I don't believe he will, McNabb is too good at spreading the ball around. I think TO will end up with approx 1100 yds and 12 tds, definitely top 10 numbers, but I don't think he will be top 3.
It could be a battle between Moss and TO for the #1 receiver this year. I don't think Harrison and Holt can compete with them due to the (re-)emergence of Wayne and Bruce. TO is the guy McNabb looks for in the red zone, and I doubt that changes. I'd say 15 TDs and 1300 rec isn't out of the question, if he continues to be a big redzone target.
I think he and McNabb are on a mission this year. He may not get a lot of yards b/c the birds will be up early most games, but McNabb and Ried will never forget about him and he will score a lot. 15 plus TDs. It will be a battle between him and Moss.
As an eagles fan, I woud like to see Ried run a little more in 4th quarter, but as a fantasy owner (with TO) throw baby throw!!

I would think having the younger QB hurts CJ and Ward in fantasy leagues, unless of course you get points per reception. Even still, they both have a lot of catching up, and over the years TO has been substantially more reliable than Ward:
CJ: 16 receptions, 243 yards, and 1 TD
Ward: 22 receptions, 346 yards, and 2 TDs
TO: 18 receptions, 254 yards, and 5 TDs
i know "it's early, the season just started, etc etc" but i really can't see harrison being the #2 WR where a lot of people have put him. The emergence of wayne and relative viability of stokely is clearly eating into his numbers. add in the fact that edge looks better than he has in years, and should be a big factor in the red zone. In fact, wayne is out-yarding him by a substantial margin right now (yes, 3 games IS enough to start getting a rough idea of the situation). marvin hasnt even topped 100 yards yet in a game, when he routinely did it during his "big years". he's not the #1 redzone target like owens, moss, and ward are, and there's no way (in my oppinion) he'll be having another 1600 yard season with all the other options on the team who arent being doubled...
just my two cents
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good
