Any thoughts on this WR? He's shown some flashes his first 2 yrs in the league, but do you guys think he has the talent/skills to take it to another level in year 3?

 

Boston

I think he's a good WR. Unfortunately it's almost impossible to say how good until he plays with a legit QB and O line. He just hasn't been in a very good situation since he came into the league.

 

Demons

My belief is that he has significant upside and will move into the neighborhood of Santana Moss, as far as fantasy points.

I am wondering the same thing. I guess just like every other team it depends on the Offense that they are going to run, and who the QB is, along with the rest of the team.

I think he has some pretty good tools to build upon but may still be a year or 2 away from becoming a true legit #1WR for Fantasy purposes.

I have to decide if I want to take a chance and keep him in one keeper league. I guess we will need to see the Bills offense in the preseason before getting any idea of what to expect for the upcoming season.

He and Mark Clayton are kind of similar in many ways... but I like him and will keep him, expecting something along the lines of 80/950/10 next season.

Plus if/when Moulds does get cut....Can Evans take on the #1Wr role at this point and be productive.

I think he would get around 65/900/6 in that role. I don't see him putting up big games on a consistent basis against other team's top corners. He will probably have a game or 2 where he gets 100+yds and 2 tds then the rest of the games will be more like 4 catches - 60yds - 0tds.

Not many rookies have had a season like he did (48 for 848 (17.6 YPC), 9 TD), Last year he still had a decent year (48 for 743 (15.5 YPC), 7 TD) under horrible circumstances. Both years he has led the team in receiving TD's.

take it to another level? yestake it to the pro-bowl level? not with the QB/QB's on the Bills roster.

Evans has future stud written all over him. He's heading into his third year, and if BUF can get a line that will protect a QB for even a reasonable amount of time, he's the type of guy who can make average QBs look great.

He'll be what Al Toon could have been.

Hard to say at this point (as already ppointed out several times).

I don't think he looks good for 2006 as BUF is in a big state of flux right now. QB mess, coaching change, etc. Outside of McGahee I'd probably look to avoid all Bills this season.

Because i am in a dynaty league and someone is offering me

Lee Evans and Lawrence Maroney for Fitzgerald .

I'd be all over that ASAP. Even if Evans gets into a better situation that doesn't mean he'll be at Fitz's level. As for Maroney he's a great prospect but he's not a definite. While he could go to a nice situation like Indy he could also end up in a RBBC. Fitz is a big time talent who's not even in his prime. I think this is a very nice deal for you and would allow you to add a legit fantasy stud without overpaying.***Sorry, just realized you had Fitz. Don't make this deal!!!

Exactly. 16 TDs in 2 years with bad QB play = the real deal to me.

I know this is not the ACF, but i am going to disagree with the other two and say you should make that deal. Now that the Cardinals have a running game, dont expect them to throw the ball 600+ times again this season. There are just not enough balls to go around for Fitz to post the numbers he did last year. He is a tremendous WR, but as long as Boldin is there, i dont see him putting up huge numbers.

If you're going by the situation than doesn't Evans get devalued even more as Buffalo's O looks to be pretty bad next season? Unless something dramatic happens I really don't see Evans in a healthy fantasy situation next year or any time in the near future.As for Arizona Denny Green skill position players usually thrive. He had Moss-Carter-Robert Smith putting up big numbers at the same time in Minny and I see that type of trend continuing. Fitz is too talented not to put up legit #1 WR numbers for the near future.

Yes, Evans should get devalued because of his situation, but i think he already is. His situation really has no where to go but up, i think we have pretty much seen the "lowest" of Evans.I have no doubt Fitz is a #1 WR no matter the situation, and i am not saying Evans is or ever will be as good as him. I am saying however, that Maroney more than covers the difference between the two. I only own Fitz in one dynasty league, and i happen to only own Evans in the same one, but if i didnt, i would trade Fitz for Evans and Maroney, ESPECIALLY if he ended up on Indy.

We'll have to disagree on this one. I understand what you're saying. I just think both Evans and especially Maroney are unknown fantasy quantities at this point while Fitz is entering stud territory and should be there for awhile. I'm just not comfortable with dealing him for two players that are still unknown quantities. If both Evans and Maroney blow up (and that could happen) than you're sitting pretty. Yet, if they don't blow up the downside is a little too risky for me.

If by "real deal" you mean a very good, fast WR who is a valuable assett to his NFl team, a viable #1 for that team, and among the upper crust in terms of talent, :yes: He's the real deal.

If you mean a FF #1 WR in a 12 team league... Not in 2006, but for the future, quite possibly.

For now, Evans is among those WRs whose NFL value exceeds his FF value by a fair amount.

Real deal = 70-80 catches/1100-1300 yds/8-10TDs
