 Is Roy Williams Ready to step up and become an elite fantasy receiver?The wide receiver position is always something of an enigma.  Unlike the running back position, where fantasy studs can emerge even on very bad teams, the wide receiver position is reliant upon so many other parts of a football team.  A good receiver will fail with a poor quarterback, won't be able to get downfield without a solid offensive line, and can be taken out of the game without a solid running game.  Factor in the notorious overblown egos found at the position and it's difficult to make heads or tails out of the receiving corps.  The days of Randy Moss and Terrell Owens carrying a fantasy football team are over. Despite that, having talented receivers is crucial to any fantasy team.  The key is understanding your league scoring rules and drafting players that fit the mold.  In leagues that reward receptions, the possession receiver automatically gains substantial value.  In leagues that only score yards and touchdowns, the streaky deep threat gains value.  Whatever way you look at it, you want to avoid drafting a wide receiver until you have at least 1 solid running back already in the mix- a championship fantasy football team is rarely built on receiving.  It’s the receivers that put a good fantasy team over the top!

Why is everyone rating Calvin Johnson so high. Wait till after the season to rank him up with the top receivers.

Comment by GUEST on 2007-08-02 08:27:05
High upside, and with Roy Williams on his other side, he is sure to get the #2 DB. Maybe #21 is a little high but I think he'll be up there!.

He probably will be up there however he still will most likely not be up with the top recievers in his first year. second maybe but not first

He has much more value in a Keeper League. I think he'll have troubles in his rookie year and Furrey may be poised to take over # 2 spot. He won't have the #'s of last year but will put in 800-900 yrds and 7 td's

Well most rookie WRs don't have a guy like Roy Williams to draw attention away. They are usually looked at to be the man and immediately get all the attention. I'd rather take the chance on Calvin than go with a mediocre WR anyday.
