  • MY Fantasy WR - 2008

    Outlook; 2008

    Randy Moss (NE) - Love him or Hate him. He was in the top 10 in all three categories in 07.
    23 TD’s in 07 and I see know reason why he shouldn’t top this list.

    Terrell Owens (DAL) - Shows little signs of slowing down and should have similar numbers he had in 07.

    Braylon Edwards (CLE) - It’s scary to think about the numbers he put up in his 3rd season with all the double teams he saw. Now with Donte Stallworth on the other side he should have even more opportunities. I think Stallworth will be a nice compliment to Edwards. Edwards will never lead the league in receptions with Kellen Winslow and the other weapons on the team he will be sharing the ball with, but he is a big play waiting to happen and was second to only Randy Moss in TD’s (16)

    ^Andre Johnson (HOU) - Missed 7 games in 07, but still managed 8 TD’s (4) 100 + yard games in 07 and he figures to be in the mix with the top Fantasy WR for 08. When healthy and on his game, Andre Johnson is as good as any WR in the League.

    Larry Fitzgerald (ARI) - Who also figures to benefit from a healthy Anquan Boldin. I think this team is on the verge of having a breakout year and both could post big numbers in 08. QB is still a Question (?) mark.

    Reggie Wayne’s (IND) - Fantasy value figures to go down, but still noteworthy with a healthy
    Marvin Harrison.

    ^Marques Colston (NO) - Underrated, was in all three top categories for WR in 07.
    Posted good numbers since coming into the league and has yet to reach his potential.

    Chad Johnson’s (CIN) - High risk High return.

    Plaxico Burress (NYG) - Steve Smith emerged in the play-offs as another threat and should take some double teams away from Plaxico. Burress had (3) 100 + yard games in 07.

    T.J. Houshmandzadeh (CIN) - Much of his success in 08 will depend on Chad Johnson and what happens there. Wanting a new contract of his own. I see him as a risky pick who still could pay-off pretty big next season with Carson Palmer still at the helm.
    (3) 100 + yard games in 07

    ^Anquan Boldin (ARI) - He had an off year in 07 missing four games due to injury, but still managed 9 TD’s and (2) 150 + yard games. He will also take some heat off of Larry Fitzgerald.

    Torry Holt (STL) - Still playing at a high level
    Playing 08 without his old side kick Isaac Bruce. He will be counted on even more.
    For big plays. Holt had 7 TD‘s and (3) 100 + yard games in 07.

    Steve Smith (CAR) - I think a strong running game with rookie RB Jonathan Stewart, will do wonders for Steve smith and the Panthers in 08. Smith had 7 TD’s and (4) 100 + yard games in 07.

    Wes Welker (NE) - Had a break out year now that he is on a good team and with a great QB.
    With Donte Stallworth now with the Browns his role will only increase. Welker had 8 TD’s and (4) 100 + yard games in 07.

    Santonio Holmes (PIT) - Ben Roethlisberger favorite target in the red zone last season. Holmes had 8 TD’s and (3) 100 + yard games in 07.

    Greg Jennings (GB) - Was a favorite target of Brett Farve last season, but it’s risky to think he will duplicate his totals of TD’s (12) last season missing 3 games.

    ^Roy Williams (DET) - Missed the last two games of season in 07. He should return to 06 form in 08. Williams only had 5 TD‘s and (3) 100 + yard games in 07.

    Roddy White (ATL) - Another from the class of 06 who came into his own in 07.
    I don’t think the Falcons have done enough this off-season to get White some help on the outside. He should still post similar numbers. 6 TD’s in 07.

    ^Marvin Harrison (IND) - Who also figures to be in the mix of the top Fantasy WR in 08.
    A healthy Marvin Harrison in 06 had 1,366 yards with 12 TD receptions and
    (5) 100 + yard games in 06.

    ^Calvin Johnson’s (DET) - Fantasy value is Hot for 08, but with Roy Williams playing opposite from him I don’t see him having elite Fantasy value for 08. Both figure to have big seasons in 08, but their successes is married to the teams successes. I look for Johnson to improve on his 4 TD’s in 07.

    ^^Vincent Jackson (SD) - Is an emerging Star at the WR position. He’s just to big and powerful for most CB to handle. He is my Sleeper pick for WR’s in 08.

    Nate Burleson (SEA) - Burleson had 9 TD’s in 07. I see Burleson improving on his other statistics in 08.

    Reggie Williams (JAC) - has been inconsistent, but still managed 10 TD’s in 07.

    Brandon Marshell’s (DEN) - rehabilitation from injury leaves some question (?) marks on his Fantasy value for 08. High risk High return.

    Javon Walker (OAK) - High risk High return.

    (Honorable mentions) 2008

    ^Lee Evens (BUF) - Had 5 TD’s in 07. I look for Evens production to improve with
    rookie James Hardy to take some heat off of him.
    Joey Galloway (TB) - Had 6 TD’s in 07, but Father time eventually catches up to all of us.
    ^Chris Chambers (SD) - Had an off year in with only 4 TD’s in 07. He is capable of many more.
    Hines Ward (PIT) - Ward had 7 TD’s last season, but wasn’t the player he once was.
    Laveranues Coles (NYJ) - Had 6 TD’s in 07 and missed some games due to injuries.
    ^Jerry Porter (JAC) - Had 6 TD’s with Oakland in 07. Could prove to be a valuable pick-up for Jacksonville.
    ^Dwayne Bowe (KC) - Best receiver on a rebuilding team. Bowe had 5 TD’s in 07 as a rookie.
    ^Donte Stallworth (CLE) - I look for Stallworth to have a big season in Cleveland in 08 now as a number two receiver.
    Reggie Brown (PHI) - had a big year in 06 with 8 TD’s, but that fell off to just 4 in 07.
    ^Jabar Gaffney (NE) - Had 5 TD’s in a limited role in 07 and will the 3rd receiver for New England in 08.
    Patrick Crayton (DAL) - Had 7 TD’s in 07, but I’m still not sure he is a number two receiver in the League.
    Bernard Berrian (MIN) - Will have a feature role in Minnesota, but questions about the QB position hurt his stock.
    Santana Moss (WAS) - Redskins are hoping he can return to 05 form.
    Kevin Curtis (PHI) - Has 18 TD’s in his 5 years in the league. 6 TD’s and (3) 100 + yard games in 07.
    Drew Bennett (STL) - His role should increase with the lose of Bruce.
    Jerricho Cotchery (NYJ) - (4) 100 + yard games in 07, but only 2 TD’s
    Derrick Mason (BAL) - He has a good number of receptions, but not much bang for the Buck.
    Bobby Engram (SEA) - See above.
    Devin Hester (CHI) - Value is in his return stats and TD’s.
    ^Steve Smith (NYG) - Smith came on in the play-offs last year and is a diamond in the ruff for 08.
    ^Sidney Rice (MIN) - Showed some good things as a rookie in 07.
    ^James Jones (GB) - Also proved to be a good receiver as a rookie in 07.
    ^Andre Davis (HOU) - Seemed to have found a home in Houston last season and I look for him to improve on his statistics in 08.

    (Rookie WR)

    James Hardy (BUF) - Is being counted on to contribute early and take some heat off of Lee Evens.
    Limas Sweed (PIT) - Has a good shot at seeing playing time backing up the ageing Hines Ward.
    Earl Bennett (CHI) - Probably the best hands and most polished rookie receiver. The Bears are in need of his fresh legs at the position and will be given every opportunity to start.
    Jordy Nelson (GB) - Brings another dimension to their receiver corp. You should see Nelson
    In the slot working as their 3rd receiver by mid season.
    Devin Thomas (WAS) - Could be the best of his class in the future, but Maybe not his rookie year.
    DeSean Jackson (PHI) - Has some value in the return game.

    I like it. You have some players too low (Holt, Steve Smith Panthers, Lee Evans, Sidney Rice), but other than that it was good.

    Note: Malcolm Kelly may start because they need a possesion guy to start next to Santana Moss. I'd consider him one of the top rookie wide outs fantasy wise.

      Elaborate on why you think they are to low, don't just say that certain guys are to low without explaining

        Plaxico is high IMO, he's never been consistent when it comes to fantasy...1 day you'll get 17 pts from him then he'll get 2 pts the next week..

        And my prediction is that Marques Colston ends up being the #1 WR

          Torry Holt: One of the top receivers this decade has been the top pass catcher the last 3 years and he always produces big numbers and with Steven Jackson healthy to establish a running game he will have plenty of oppurtunities to get into the secondary.

          Steve Smith: Arguably the best WR in the NFL. With a new run game to take pressure off of the pass, plus the addition of Moose and D.J. Hackett, he's a top 3 wide out.

          Lee Evans: His QB will have another year of experience, the running game is solid because Marshawn Lynch is the best "hit and run" back in the leauge, and James Hardy will take pressure off of Evans.

          Sidney Rice: A possesion type target is a solid #2 to Berrian and I think he's better than Berrian. I see 1,000 yards and 10 TD's. With A.P. on 1st and goals from the one, teams are bound to stack 9 in the box and p.a. fake to AP and throw it up to Rice could be unstoppable.

            WR's are married to the success of their QB and thus the lower ranking for Holt, Rice and Steve Smith (CAR). Lee Evens doesn’t score very high in the 100 + yardage bonus category.
            He only averages 2.25 per season over his four year career.

              Stallworth didn't take away Wes Welker's production last year. Jabar Gaffney actually passed Stallworth as the No. 3 WR.

                I don’t know Walter, because the Patriots used them in similar ways. I mean you wont see them throw many WR screen pass to Moss or Gaffney.

                  I don't think Steve Smith (Giants) will be taking away many double teams from Plax next season.

                    Steve Smith's numbers will be based on his QB play and whether or not he stays healthy. He certainly has the talent but I'm not sure I'd trust Moore/Delhomme to get him the ball. Same goes with Rice, he has aruably the worst starting QB in the NFL throwing him the ball and he plays on a run oriented team. Even if opposing defenses stack the box agains their RB's I wouldn't trust Jackson to make the right read and get Rice the ball.

                      I agree that Tory Holt should be higher. He is part of that group of receivers who are seemingly eternal (Moss, Harrison, T.O., etc.) and if the Rams get 16 games out of Bulger and Steven Jackson Holt is easily a top-5 WR.

                      An this may just be me but I think Brandon Marshall should be WAY higher. The guy is a freak, he's young and his injury will not affect him much. Last year he had over a 100 catches, 1200 yards and 7 TD's. This year he'll have another year of experience under his belt, and so will Jay Cutler who is widely considered to be the next superstar of the league. Also, he'll have Javon "Crybaby" Walker out of town so he won't have to listen to his whining about touches. For me the only question marks about Marshall are will the Broncos vaunted run game be good enough this year to take pressure off the passing game and I was also expecting the Broncs to pick up a DeSean Jackson type burner to stretch the field and take some double teams off of Brandon. Those concerns aside, along with Braylon Edwards, Brandon "Baby T.O" Marshall, for me, is the next great WR of this league and his size, speed, hands and power combination is virtually unmatched.

                      I think Andre Johnson is in the right spot in that list but I just want to second the motion that when on his game there is no better WR out there. This guy is awesome, and if the Texans can scrap together a half-decent line and some other targets for opponents to defend Johnson could be special. What this guy has done having gone from the greatest college team of all-time to the Junior Varsity supporting cast of the Texans is absolutely incredible.

                        Marvin Harrison is way too low. Sure he is old, but he's got Reggie Wayne getting double teams, and Peyton at QB. Brandon Marshall is too high. He had his freak accident, so he won't be conditioned when the season begins because he didn't do offseason workouts.

                          Marvin Harrison is going to be 36 on the 25th of August.
                          Reggie Wayne has become Payton’s go to guy, supplanting Harrison.
                          I have him in the top 20, still better then the 27th ranking he is getting from NFL.com.

                          Brandon Marshell is a freak of a talent and if not for the accident
                          He would rate much higher consideration.

                              Only reason I would consider Chad Johnson high risk is because he is a Bengal. Everyone on that team is a high risk because they are part of that pothetic franchise.
