How do you see the Philadelphia WRs shaking out going forward? (1 Viewer)

Once Curtis gets back and everyone is healthy, who will be the #1 and #2 WRs? Jackson's been doing well, but his touches have decreased since Reggie Brown returned. What happens when Curtis returns?

 
It's a complete toss-up with McNabb throwing the rock. I would venture a guess that Curtis is the clear #1 when healthy and DeSean and Brown drive you crazy with 120 one game and 13 the next. Curtis-DeSean-Brown imo.

 
My guess at this time would be that when everyone is back healthy that Curtis is WR#1 and Brown WR#2 with DeSean playing in the slot as WR#3. The thing is that McNabb is a solid veteran who will get the ball to whomever is open so it's tough to say who gets the best numbers. I personally think Jackson seems like a WR who should do well as a return guy/slot WR#3.

 
Curtis is the clear-cut #1 there, because he knows how to get his body in front of the ball to field short-hops. :tinfoilhat:

 
any word on Curtis' return?
Last I saw was there's a chance he'll play a little this week but I'm guessing they hold him out again and bring him back in Week 8 after the bye.To answer the original question, my speculation is Curtis and Brown will be the starters with Jackson the No. 3. But all three will be on the field a ton so Jackson will essentially be another starter.

This is the correct answer. It's hard to rely on any Eagles wide receiver to give you consistent production. I actually believe DeSean Jackson has the most upside, because he's a game breaker. No other receiver on this team is a special talent unfortunately.

I think Curtis is pretty darn good. He was a Top 20 WR last year and it wasn't just because of a few big games. He caught at least four passes in 11 games and only had fewer than three in a game twice. From a reception standpoint, he was very consistent last season. The TDs basically all came in the one game against Detroit but in a PPR format, Curtis was a fine WR2.

I kinda feel like DeSean's looks went down for one week, and didn't extrapolate that to any kind of pattern...Targets - Philly WR last 3 weeks

Week 1 - Jackson 10, Lewis 7, Avant 4, Baskett 3

Week 2 - Jackson 8, Lewis 5, Avant 4, Baskett 3

Week 3 - Baskett 9, Jackson 7, Avant 4, Brown 3, Lewis 2

Week 4 - Jackson 10, Brown 10, Avant 5, Baskett 2, Lewis 2

Week 5 - Brown 5, Avant 3, Lewis 3, Jackson 2, Baskett 0

Season - Jackson 37, Avant 20, Lewis 19, Brown 18, Baskett 17

Jackson >> Curtis >>>> Brown >>>>>> Avant/Baskett/Lewis

 
After having seen that Baskett's early success wasn't indicative of future performance, I now believe that the two WR's who will be on the field the most will be Curtis as the underneath/possession WR, and Jackson as the downfield/gadget option.

It's a crap shoot among the others - Avant, Brown, Baskett, Lewis - as to which of them, if any, will get catches in any given game.

 
I think it'll likely go:

Curtis

Brown

Jackson

With a lot more 3-wide sets to get Jackson on the field(especially if LJ Smith can't stay healthy)

Seems like a great time to buy-low on Curtis and probably McNabb too.
