As detroit to denver said, Burleson earned the #2 spot in the offseason and I think he is the better suited guy to start.

I have always liked Kelly Campbell, but he is mainly a deep threat guy, and he is too suspectible to injury.

The main reason that you want to think about grabbing Robinson is that Culpepper is playing out of his mind and the RB situation is a little dicey right now so they are going to be more apt to throw. I would ride the hot hand while it is that and then dump him when it's time.

from yahoo:


WR
Nate Burleson(2 star play)
    
Burleson broke into the scoring column in week five, but we'll need to see more consistency before we start endorsing him as something more than a plug-in play.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
WR
Marcus Robinson (3 star play)
    
Robinson lulled everyone to sleep before getting caught up in the wave of fantasy points that is the Vikings offense last Sunday. If you have bye week issues, M-Rob is a safe play, as it appears Culpepper is looking for him downfield and in the end zone.

detroit_to_denver wrote:Robinson is not going to be as consistent as Wayne at all. He lost his number 2 spot going into the season to Burleson. Last I heard he was still the number 3 guy. He well finish with more TDs than Burleson but not more than Wayne. The problem is unlike Indy once Minnesota get in the 5 they just play jump ball with Moss. I mean they threw it to him at the 1 last week. Until people stop this it'll keep happening.


I disagree. Robinson is essentially the #2 guy in Minnesota now. Even when he was the #3 guy on the depth chart, they were still pulling Burleson for Robinson when they were inside the 30. Let's keep in mind that Robinson has only played in 3 games and change (in week 3 he left due to injury before he could get a catch). In 3 weeks he has 218 yards and 3 TDs; in 5 weeks Reggie Wayne has 434 yards and 3 TDs. That is pretty equal, especially since Robinson started the season recovering from an injury and as the #3 WR. Keep in mind as well that Robinson had 6 TDs in the second half of the season last year, and also had a 1400 yard/9 TD season a few years ago. The guy is a very capable WR. His major issue is the fact that he is injury prone, but if he manages to play the rest of the season healthy, I see no reason he won't do as well as Reggie Wayne. Between his history of success when healthy, the pass heavy Vikings offense and his current production this season, he is a WR that shouldn't be ignored too quickly.

Robinson is the kind of guy who puts up half his season stats in one game. Don't be fooled.

A lot of hate here for a guy with 5 TDs on the year and is a top 6-8 WR (depending how you score everything).
