    If you are talking Fantasy League selection I would pass because I doubt all that much in production out of him this year. Maybe next year a possible second WR on your team.

    I think he will be like most rookie WRs and struggle his first year

    I think in the right situation, he could of been good as a rookie because of his size and great hands, but unfortunately he is on a team with a very young, inexperienced, Raw QB (tavarias Jackson)
    Also, with Chester Taylor and Adrian Peterson on the team and Brad Childress as the HC, expect them to be a very run orientated offense

    If you really want a sleeper WR prospect, take/pick up (if available) Jacoby Jones from the Texans. He has been electric in the preseason scoring 2 TD on 80+ yard punt returns and has scored 2 TDs on offense.

    While he is still very raw coming from little Lane college, he still has great size/speed (6'4 210 4.5) and pretty dependable hands. He also doesnt have much competition for the #2 spot opposite Andre Johnson (who will draw much of the attention away from Jones)

    ive picked him up of waivers in all of my drafts so far

    Im going to assume the draft is already over and you have already picked you teams and dont like how youre TE situation turned out and thats why youre asking

    So, i would say that if Owen Daniels is available, he would a good pick up. He scored 6 TDs as a rookie and that was with David Carr as the rookie. Im willing to bet Schuab will be a better QB and that COULD help Daniels.

    Also, If you want a real sleeper, how about Eric Johnson on the saint? He is a former WR who was converted to TE by the 49ers because of his size, and just a few years years ago he lead the 49ers with 82 catches.

    we all know how much brees loves to use athletic TE's and without Joe Horn and no one really stepping up in NO for that #2 spot (devery henderson?? Robert Meachem?? terrence cooper??), brees just might start using his TE more, and Johnson has already won the spot in camp

    Good call. I took EJ for that same reason in my FF draft this past weekend.

    wow thanks Rip,

    TE are slim pickings in our league.

    Johnson and Daniels are gone.

    What about Alex Smith from the bucs?
    With Geff Garthia as the QB, he probably wont be going deep much and instead will us the tight end as a check down more often then say Chris simms would

    Only problem with him is that the Bucs run 3 deep at TE, one of which is also another receiving TE (jerremy Stevens) so that might take away some of this touches

    Also another TE that you should be able to pick up is Mercedes Lewis

    With NO ONE on the jags roster stepping up at WR, dont be surprised to see Lewis getting alot more looks

    Sidney Rice was not a polished route runner in college, and now has an inexperienced and crappy QB throwing him the ball.
