Re: Waiver-Wire Wideouts
I'm really looking for a WR who's the #1 option on his team. Terrell is my first choice, because he's all Chicago has in terms of WRs.
The others on my list are really just 2nd choices. They all suffer from the "spread it around" syndrome to some degree -- lots of other options at receiver for each of their teams. I guess I'm just wondering if any of them could stand out.
Thinking about it now, I doubt either Robinson or Burleson can stand out consistently with Moss as the top option. I think they'll split time at WR2 and each end up with 650-700 yards -- pretty mediocre.
Bryant, as many have said, will be hurt by Parcells' love for Keyshawn. He's probably on par with Burleson/Robinson.
Givens, IMO, has a better chance to hit 800 yards with a few more TDs. Then again, he could drop off the map at any time like Troy Brown or David Patten.
Cedrick Wilson is an enigma-- SF has issues at QB, but Wilson hauled in a ton of passes in Week 1. Still, Brandon Lloyd is the "official" #1 WR in SF. But who knows? Tough call.
Eric Johnson, OTOH, is a top-10 TE, but I don't need him with Tony G. on my squad. The question is, would I be able to trade him for a better WR than any in the group I'm looking at now?
Red Leader, of the group you listed, I like Driver best, then Calico, then Kennison.
