WR Santana Moss

This Year's Analysis History
Mad_Puppy



Positives
Last year Moss was a PPR king hauling in 93 catches. As the unquestioned #1 receiver in Washington I see a lot of Receptions again (though 93 is hard to duplicate). Iím expecting 80 catches 1000+ yards and 6 TDís solid numbers for a #3 Receiver. Has been pretty consistent the past 3 years.

Negatives
Now has lesser QB throwing the ball, Grossman or John Beck (not exactly household names).

Draft Strategy
I was looking for a #3 receiver. This guy has been consistent and had his best year with new head coach Shanahan. Iím expecting more of the same this year.



Prior Year's Analysis History

Positives
McNabb should upgrade the passing attack of this run oriented offense. Moss should easily lead the team in passing catches/yards/TDs (65/800/6). Clearly the WR1.

Negatives
Philly is regarded as run first. The TE get a lot of looks, something McNabb should continue. Moss has be up and down his career.

Draft Strategy
With the core starters set, WR depth is in order. This is a coin flip between Maclin & Moss. Maclin (WR2) could likely be the #3 receiver behind DJax & Celek, there's a lot more competition for targets in Philly. This is also only his 2nd year, so I'll go with experienced #1.


Agenda42



Positives
Moss is the clear #1 WR on a team that just got a massive QB upgrade. He's averaged 70 catches a season over the past 5 years. He will see a bunch of targets and provide reliable fantasy points.

Negatives
Moss has only had one top 10 WR season in the last 5 years. Over the other four, he has scored only 4 TDs per season. He's pretty undersized and the Redskins aren't a prolific scoring offense.

Draft Strategy
Well, a big run at the QB position left me needing one badly here, but the player behind me already has a pair of QBs, so I feel safe drafting Moss here. He's an good get as a WR3, and should be good enough to tide me over when my starters aren't there.


Markulous



Positives
Expect offensive production from Washington as a whole. The QB position has received a healthy upgrade with McNabb. They have a proven coach with Shanahan, and they've made it a priority as to upgrade their offensive line. And Moss has been impressive in practice. He could very well be in store for a big season.

Negatives
He's been a little inconsistent the past couple seasons and only had 3 TDs last year. He just had a scope done on his knee, so hopefully that shouldn't bother him.

Draft Strategy
He's always been close to 60-70 Rec. and 800 yards Rec. so even with the low TDs he can be a solid WR3. But with all the weapons around him now he has a ton of upside and could very well be one of the biggest steals in the draft.


OarChambo



Positives
#1 target on an offense that received a lot of significant upgrades this offseason.

Negatives
An inconsistent nightmare that disappears for weeks at a time only to blow up without warning, in this format that's ok though. I'm more concerned about his constantly bum hamstring than anything.

Draft Strategy
My draft plan all along was to take either Andre Johnon or Fitzgerald then Harvin and then start picking WR's prone to both big weeks and disappearing acts, which should theoretically be gold in this format...if they psync up their blow up weeks well.


Aussie Cowboy



Positives
The new West Coast Offense should emphasize getting the ball in Moss' hands where he can do some damage after the catch. He had a good 2nd half last season with over 500 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns. His QB is still improving and that should help his numbers this year.

Negatives
Can be very streaky i.e. will post huge numbers in a few games and then go missing in others. Has been troubled with hamstring/groin injuries in the past.

Draft Strategy
I needed to find my WR2 here as I'd already secured every other starting position (QB/RB1/RB2/WR1/TE) barring kicker and defense. Moss was the highest WR left on my board and I think he has some upside this year, and should outperform his average draft position.


Sanchez



Positives
huge Boom or Bust player.Has the ability to score everytime he touches the ball.Campbell is in his 2nd year an should improve.Moss should get the most targets on the team.He came on more at the end of the season after Cambell took over for Brunell

Negatives
injuries risks,dissappears some weeks.

Draft Strategy
Only had 1 wr at this point and Moss was the best wr on my board.


Pat_Smith



Positives
Homerun threat, who can put up the big game against most anyone at anytime. He has an improving QB and an better passing game should result in a season closer to 2005 (84 catches) than 2006 (55).

Negatives
For every big game he can have a very pedestrian one. My hope is that I can pick the right starts. Small guy, which brings with it injury risk and less red zone touches. 55 catches last year hurts, but with a more stable passing game the year before 2006's 84 should be more indicative of his ablility.

Draft Strategy
Needed a sure NFL starter at WR and he is that. I plan on over-drafting high risk-high reward type WRs, and he is my insurance policy if I am completely wrong on all those. Plus, I like the HR power and am confident (arrogant?) enough to think I can predict when those 3 TD games are coming.


GTOsRule



Positives
Proven performer. Catches the long ball for yardage and should score some TDs. The addition of Antwaan Randle El should take some heat off of Santana.

Negatives
As the premier receive, he will receive a lot of double coverage.

Draft Strategy
Went with RB, WR, RB and strongly believe that the first four picks should be RB, RB, WR, WR (not necessarily in that order, depends on the talent on the board). Santana was the highest rated WR at this point in the draft.


Ed_Leduke



Positives
Solid WR. Best of remaining in my opinion.

Negatives
Not a big fan of him in particular, and he is on a team with a QB controversy of sorts.

Draft Strategy
Needed depth at WR and took best available. Will need more support in case.


mrkkti



Positives
Speed, the dude is fast and an excellent route running separating himself from defenders. He is an aggressive player and can produce big plays. He is also a great possession receiver, turning 35 of his 45 catches into first downs last season to keep the offense on the field.

Negatives
New team, new system. The Redskins were dismal in the passing game last season. If Ramsey gets things going however, it will be huge for Santana.

Draft Strategy
I needed to complete my WR corp as a result of bye week conflicts with my first two WR selections. In a 12 team league that starts two WR, Moss is an excellent choice for a back-up and could easily become a #1 for me if things gel in Washington. Moss is replacing Coles in Washington. The Redskins threw in Coles's direction 168 times, the second-most in the NFL last season so this should give Santana plenty of opportunities.


Wolfie



Positives
Big play guy, blazing speed, good route runner, and not afraid of going over the middle.

Negatives
Not big, only 5'10" and 185 lbs. Not sure if he can beat double teams and coverages designed to stop him, or his troubles the last 5 games of 2003 and all of 2004, were more of the problems of the Jets passing offense and Pennington's shoulder problems.

Draft Strategy
Was going to take Marshal Faulk here, but he went 2-4 picks earlier. Rolled the dice and took a shot, based on my gut. I think that most of Santana's problems were the Jets passing scheme and Pennington's shoulder problems, limiting the deep ball.


dpstark5



Positives
Great speed, ability to create after the catch and his style will benefit from the rule changes. Pennington and Moss have developed their vertical game and Moss should see fewer double teams with the addition of McCareins.

Negatives
His size 5'10" 185, a physical CB can cause timing issues with Pennington and the AFC East is a very conservative division due to the defensenses of Mia, Buff and NE.

Draft Strategy
Obtain my second receiver. I am hoping that my pick at 3.10 and 4.03 will be in the top ten to elevate RB difference froms rounds 1 and 2


Brad_Wyatt



Positives
Clearly the #1 WR on the Jets with a smart QB to take advantage of his speed. Hard worker. Fun to watch, cause he's so quick

Negatives
Small, might get injured (but you have to catch him

Draft Strategy
Needed a #1 receiver to be an every week started for me. I had wanted Chad Johnson or Hines Ward, but both were gone by this point. Coles was on my radar too, but went for Moss in the end.


Mad_Puppy



Positives
Best young QB in the league throwing to him. Caught 10 of 13 passes thrown to him in red Zone last year. Punt returner as well (another opportunity for TD's)Fast fast fast. Feature WR in good passing team. 1105yds & 10 TD's without having afull season as #1 guy.

Negatives
Smallish 5'10" 185#. Last 5 games had Zero TD's

Draft Strategy
After 5 WR taken already this guy was my #3 ranked guy (I'm happy), he is on a good offensive team with one of the best young QB's in the game throwing to him. I think the addition of McCariens will help free him up for some big TD scores. I expect 1200-1300 yds & 10-12 TD's. The other WR I concidered (Darrel Jackson) has the same bye week as my #2 RB. Wanted to make my #1 WR not cross over one of my other 2 starters.


Pat_Smith



Positives
He is the main target of Chad Pennington, a very talented young QB who is healthy and I expect great things from. And without Pennington all season he still went for 1100 yards and 10 TDs. The guy is just coming into his own and I believe he is poised to step up into the very top tier of his position.

Negatives
Ended the season with a 5 game TD draught. Pennington may not stay healthy. Not too many negatives, really.

Draft Strategy
In hindsight, this pick probably should have been Hines Ward. Don't get me wrong, I like Moss and expect him to outproduce Ward this year. But I am also high on the other guy in NY, Justin McCareins, and I virtually eliminated one of my late round sleepers as an option by taking Moss. But WR was where the talent was at this pick, so WR is what I took. But not with the certainty of my first two picks, as I flirted with taking McNabb here.


Tim_Davoll



Positives
Can Catch the Ball Chad Pennington is healthy

Negatives
Streaky

Draft Strategy
Another WR --- Still upset about how QBs are belittled...but those are the facts...I usually go RB RB then WR WR...but this year I am living life dangerously...if it gets too dangerous, than I am out the first week. Ce La Vie!
