KRob - the undisputed #1 WR for MIN in '06? (1 Viewer)

Williamson has a small outside chance of being MIN's #1, but I gotta think KRob is viewed as the lead horse on this team.

The Vikings' #1 WR checklist

Burleson = gone

T Taylor = not a chance

M Robinson = not a chance

Wiggins = gone

Kleinsasser = better blocker than receiver

free agent WR = none left

rookie WR = no one with immediate #1 potential

Why not a chance for Taylor or Robinson?Is Troy Williamson dead or off the team?

Has either player been even close to #1 status this century?? YES...Marcus was a monster in '99 BEFORE his two blown knees. Again, that was in '99. Taylor couldn't even crack 900 yards as the Ravens' primary option 3-4 years ago. What more can be said about him now??

 
Williamson is the guy to get right now. KRob is still a risk and I'm not sold on his hands. I hope the KRob hype gets going to Williamson will be cheap on draft day.

With the Vikings WR situation so confusing, I'm going with the guy who has got the most talent.

:confused: Not that I think he would be the number 1 receiving option but he is still with the team isn't he?

You're correct. My bad. For some reason, I thought Wiggins went to JAX. I confused him with Tice going to JAX as the TE's coach. :ph34r:

In 8 Zealot startup drafts KRob is averaging the 148th pick and Williamson is averaging the 161st pick...Which equates to about a round difference...

It kind of depends on who you like the most...

Assuming Burleson actually leaves, I like Taylor as the WR2 in Minny, with Williamson as the 3 - but we shall see when camp rolls around . . .

Belive you me, I'm not the biggest KRob supporter on the planet. However, Mr X did indeed post over 140 receptions and 2100 yards collectively in '02 and '03.'04 = KRob's party hiatus

'05 = Pro-Bowl (special teams, of course)

Of all the WR's on the MIN roster, KRob has the best track record (statistically speaking).

 
Looking at the situation, and the history of Brad Johnson and Childress' offenses, I would say none of the guys are going to be worth having. Take a look at what Johnson did last year (albeit with a different offense). It was a different guy each week, and some weeks no one was worth having. Philly's history, prior to Owens' arrival was that none of the guys were studs, their offense spread it around.

My money is that none of the guys are worth starting week in and week out. My only guess would be that they continue to develop Williamson as he is obviously the future of the WR corp, so he probably gets the most playing time, but if both Robinsons, Taylor, Williamson and possibly Burleson are all still on the roster, I'd imagine they use their varying skill sets to suit their needs, like they did last year, and not to suit FF players.

one of those years he had I believe 1240 yards and 5 TD's. Just off the top of my head that's my guess because i owned him back then. That was also playing in Seattle with Holmgrenn and the west Coacst off. Childress has said he's not running a real WCO but I'd imagine he'd incorporate some of what he learned in Philly into his passing attack for what it's worth, even if he's going about more of a power style for the run game.Travis Taylor has a pretty bad set of hands (so does K Rob but maybe that was because he was playing drunk

:banned: ) and has certainly never been considered a technician at WR. Which again might compare him to K Rob. But, K Rob is a freakish type athlete so maybe TT is a poor man's Krob.

Myself, outside of their lack of talent at the position, I can't understand why they've plunked down money and commitment to a guy who's been such a problem with his former club, the NFL, and the court system (what idiot shows up drunk for Jail?) when they are supposedly trying to clean ship (pun intended).

I also think it's a real mistake if they bring back WHIZZY for the same reasons. They've got numbers at the position 1. Chester taylor 2. Me Mo (like him or hate him but he's an excellent 3rd down and change of pace type back and 3. Ciatrick Fason (talented kid who just needs playing time, he could contribute).

As for Williamson, it's hard to tell when he'll develop into a solid starter, he'll only be in year 2 and we all know the wideouts can take some time. He will be in the picture, though most certainly it's more of a development thing.

I think KRob could have been a bigger player last year at WR but it was more of a, "hey, you're here , but we're not too sure about you and we have guys in a pecking order already. Keep your S*** together and we'll see what happens." When incorporated into the offense, he made some big plays at times and he obviously improved the Special Teams, making the Pro Bowl (I hope he stayed away from the drinks in the cut out pineapple), so it's obvious he has the physical skills to be special against NFL comp still.

Finally, I'd say it's real murky right now if KRob or Williamson emerge as bonafide 1 - 2 wideout options at this point and the same would go for T Taylor. Marcus Robinson is more of a super sub off the bench. He's got little left physically so I would eliminate him from canidacy for a #1 type season as most think he's not got enough in the tank. If I were a betting man, I'd throw my money down on KRobbecause he's been around and done it before but there are certain to be more solid WR choices fantasy wise from other teams.

 
What's not right is that people act like he's the number 1 by default. The reality is he was one of the very top WR prospects in the last ten years. Yes, he had an immaturity problem. Immaturity didnt cause the talent to go away. It caused him not to reach his potential as quickly as he could have. He's so talented he was able to start and produce in the NFL with a bad attitude and poor work effort. He still hasnt lived up to his potential. He's matured at least a little bit and possibly a lot. We all used to be immature ourselves. Many of us still became successful.

Don't you know, he's being traded to Houston for Domanick Davis! :hophead:
 
Williamson and Brad Johnson had great chemestry toward the end of last season in practice. The two will have all preseason and Troy will be the #1. Now whether that's 90 catches is one thing, but Williamson will be the go to man this season. KRob is an afterthought who will return punts and kickoffs between mixed drinks.

You're correct. My bad. For some reason, I thought Wiggins went to JAX. I confused him with Tice going to JAX as the TE's coach. :ph34r:
Tice isn't the TE's coach, he's the assistant head coach and offense quality coach or some other weird title.

You are correct the Jags gave me him a cushy title (assistant head coach of offense) in an effort to not disrespect the former head coach. However, his main capacity will be coaching the TE's. Tice broke into the coaching ranks as a TE coach for the Vikes in '96.

What an interesting WR corps-Williamson is probably "too raw" still. He got enough playing time to get his feet wet but I'm not sure about him yet. Midseason? BTW I'm glad they genuinely didn't term him the next Randy Moss etc and let him learn without too much pressure. I think the Vikes handled that well. Hopefully it'll pay dividends.

KRob-well we all know his history. He was a model citizen last year for the Vikes.

Taylor-Florida guy that's hurt almost every year if not every year

MRob-NFLE WR, was supposedly "done" years ago in Chicago

Wiggins-backup TE cut by Jets and possibly NE

Sasser-former FB

It's a far cry from the thoroughbreds they had in Reed, Carter, and Moss. I guess KRob has to be the #1 huh? Quite curious where he'll be drafted in FF. Apparently the Vikes are a nice team to play WR for(Carter and Moss likely HOFers). I hope it works out for him

I don't think Burleson had a chance to be the #1 in Minnesota anyway. His skill and contribution was hardly an upgrade to Travis Taylor. I suspect Minnesota will have a wide receiver team by committee because they still have so many guys of equal skill set (K-Rob having any noticeable advantage).
