    This T.O. "bum toe" talk is finally starting to scare me enough to drop him do… 

    This T.O. “bum toe” talk is finally starting to scare me enough to drop him down on my wide receiver list (along with Trent Edwards on his list.) The fact that he’s 35 years old (I was just reminded of this fact) isn’t boosting my confidence…plus his reality show is awful.

    Browns receiver Braylon Edwards has ANOTHER leg/foot injury?! As of right now I’m not getting too excited about Edwards’ potential this season…how about you? I’m starting to think that 14th on the WR rankings is too high, but lucky for him he’s surrounded by other guys with big question marks (Brandon Marshall, Roy Williams, etc)

    Wide Receiver rankings for 2009 

    Here is our wide receiver cheat sheet for this season:

    1. Randy Moss, NE – With Brady back, expect mucho touchdowns again
    2. Andre Johnson, HOU – He’s a reception machine and racks up the yards as well.
    3. Larry Fitzgerald, ARI – The age of his quarterback scares me a bit, but Fitz is a monster and would probably produce even with Matt Leinart in the lineup
    4. Calvin Johnson, DET – The team HAS to do better this year and Megatron should see a boost in his stats
    5. Steve Smith, CAR – Injury scare seems to have passed.
    6. Reggie Wayne, IND – Should be one of the more consistent options on this list.
    7. Roddy White, ATL – He got his money over the weekend and immediately made an impact in the first preseason game. Any scare about White missing practices can be erased now.
    8. Greg Jennings, GB – He’ll be Rodgers top target all season long.
    9. Anquan Boldin, ARI – Saying all the right things and claims to be focused on helping the team win…not on getting more money.
    10. Terrell Owens, BUF – DOWNGRADE! As much as I think he would put up great numbers if healthy all year, I’m wondering if he’ll be able to stay on the field, as he’s already missing practices with a “bum toe.”
    11. Dwayne Bowe, KC – After being demoted to third string recently for attitude/weight issues, he had a huge preseason game and there’s no reason to move him down at this point.
    12. Marques Colston, NO – In this high-flying, pass-friendly offense, Colston should see the most passes.
    13. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, SEA – UPGRADE! Braylon Edwards and Brandon Marshall just keep making the guys right below them on the list look a whole lot more appealing!
    14. Chad Ochocinco, CIN – UPGRADE! He’s healthy this year and Housh is gone. I’m optimistic he can make the best out of the situation. Apparently he can even kick extra points!
    15. Wes Welker, NE – Last time Brady was at QB, Welker was a Pro Bowler with eight TD’s and almost 1,200 yards.
    16. (More …)

      Lee Evans is going to surprise the hell out of you. He’s in his prime and finally has a complementary receiver to keep teams from doubling him on every play.

      @matt: it’s not Lee Evans I’m worried about…it’s Trent Edwards. The guy averaged under 200 yards passing per game and less than one touchdown. He has to prove he can throw the ball to make me believe that both T.O. and Evans can put up stats this season.

      @brandon: Hard to rack up the yardage when your receiving corps is the laughingstock of the NFL. Check out their receiving stats from last season. Lee Evans at #1, Josh Reed at #2, no surprise there, but then the next three top receivers are two RBs and a TE. The third-best WR had 232 receiving yards. The much-ballyhooed rookie wideout Josh Hardy had 9 total receptions.

      This is why I can’t help but like the TO move, despite how much I loathe him as a personality. If there was ever a team that was held back by a lack of quality WRs, the Bills were it last year.

      I can’t figure out how to reply to the vick to washington comments.

        All fixed, Chris. Threaded comments are live.

      Regarding T.O., let’s not forget that his first two teams after SF were the Eagles and the Cowboys. Two well-developed passing offenses with great quarterbacks. I just don’t see that same situation in Buffalo.

      I definitely think Fitz will be #1 and Roddy White will be top 5. Count it!

      You have Desean Jackson at 20 and 33! Which is it?

        I had that a few days ago, was a copy/paste error…I fixed it though, maybe you need to refresh the page or something.

    Steve Smith suspended 2 games by Panthers 

    In case you missed it, on Friday Steve Smith was kicked out of Carolina’s practice session after fighting with cornerback Ken Lucas. Lucas ended up with a broken nose after being hit in the face by Smith. Due to this, over the weekend the Panthers suspended Smith for the first two games of the season…the regular season that is. While he’ll be able to participate in pre season games, he will miss two games of production for your fantasy team if you draft him. It’s important to note that he will not receive any additional punishment from the league, so those two games are all you need to worry about him missing. However, due to this lack of production from a top tier receiver, he takes a minor hit on our wide receiver power rankings.

      Steve recognized that he was wrong, gave no excuses, apologized, and is taking his punishment with no complaints. Come game 3 he will be ready to rock. He could be a steal in drafts now.
