He has 0 catches. Ever. It's safe to say he's not a HoF WR.

Just hasnt found the right coach to turn him into a WR....

Maybe best player available at the time of the draft to them. Obviously that not even close to being true now, but I think that usually What Ozzie does . I think that was his last year running the ravens draft.

Yep. That's all that separates him from Calvin Johnson.

I'm worried about the matchup against the Pats this week. Thinking of sitting him. Anyone else?

I drafted Lamar and Russell Wilson so yes I’m sitting him but I realize I’m in an atypical position to do so. I’d have no qualms starting him as a top 5 QB this week despite the matchup.

Pats one weakness is giving up big plays in the running game. Greg Roman and Kaep beat them in 2012 doing this.

Hat tip to Kaleb for the info.

Well I've got Stafford which may not sound great but OAK giving up the 2nd most pts to QBs. Seems like a safe floor at least.

Both games in the late slot. I'm sure I will change my mind multiple times and settle on the wrong one at about 4pm ET Sunday.

I'm not starting him. Plugged in Carr off the wire. Sucks, but I don't think Lamar is match-up proof yet, and Pats D is no joke this year.

He looked phenomenal against Seattle. I have seen his wheels. He took his speed to an entire new level.

Good luck Patriots.
