Thoughts/projections for Braylon this season? He just signed on with Seattle and is 100% recovered from his 2011 knee injury...apparently looking good in TC.

He has had two seasons with more than 55 receptions...those were 5 and 6 years ago. If he is healthy, I'd say something approaching 50-800-4

Just that time passes. It's 2012, not 2007.

i fell for this last year. i thought smith might hit him short and on the step and let him take it to the house a bunch of times.

i think he is a decent signing for the 'hawks to be honest but not a particularly good fantasy option.

I can't muster interest in a WR nicknamed "Hands of Stone".

He's probably around WR70 to WR80 on my board.

His beard bumps him up to WR65.

Jokes aside, stay away. He'll be battling Doug Baldwin for the WR3 on a weak passing O to begin with. Even if he ascends to #2 across from Rice, I think his ceiling is something like 900/5 (with a very, very low floor).

i think he is there to replace Rice rather than Baldwin. not sure though.

Nah, Rice is the man in Seattle unless he's injured.

Golden Tate/Baldwin/Braylon is the part of the depth chart more likely to shift around

yeah, two concussions last year (3 in career i think), two off season shoulder surgeries, only managed 5 games on 2010, 9 in 2011, and only one full season in a five year career.

Never said he's gonna stay healthy, but your proposal of Braylon replacing him is wrong.

And for the record 2 of those seasons were 13 games a piece.

lol, hardly a ringing endorsement, and for the record Rice only featured as a starter in a combined 7 games during the years you are referring to.

clearly the coaching staff are hedging their bets.

Again, you're arguing with no one but yourself... anyone knows he's injury prone

Has nothing to do with his talent level or position on the depth chart

I think Edwards was brought in simply because we have a fragile Sidney Rice, Baldwin, and a bunch of young guys who haven't either a) found a consistent role or b) haven't played more than a few snaps if any in the NFL. Looking for some sort of veteran presence to, at the very least, push some of the young guys in camp and/or make the team if not enough of the youngin's step up.

In redrafts I would only be looking at Sid or Baldwin depending on their ADP. The situation is too murky about who will be the #2 in a run first offense. Tate would be a nice late round flier. In dyno, I'd keep my eyes on Ricardo Lockette in deeper leagues.

yes, thats my point, he can't be 'the man' if he can't get on the field. i don't think Edward is just there for depth, i think its an insurance policy against Rice's health.
