Ram- as to the Ram's recievers..I think they are a nice young bunch..some need some seasoning, but they've got a great talent pool to build on. I think it would be nice if they had more of an intermediate type of guy. I love Givens and Young's ability to blow the top off, and Amendola is great at moving the chains. Perhaps Kendricks can be that intermediate guy?? Personally, I think they'd be better of snagging Dwayne Bowe than Harvin. Given the attitude problems they're sure to have with Young, I don't think they need Harvins as well. Even though comnparatively Harvin's are non existant when up agianst Young's, but still, you get the idea.IDK what group of WR's everyone's watching in STL... But they are horrendous. Amendola is the best Wr on the team but like i said he is at best a good slot reciever; and his downfall is he can never stay healthy. I have a feeling Danny will get a nice contract from New England anyway so he will be gone. Chris Givens has potential but to be a nice deep threat but never a possesion reciever. ( watched every Rams game this year can't tell you how many drops Givens had) "Titus Young is a headcase and there's a chance he might not even be on the roster opening day. "
But if I were to bet on it, I'd say the ram's alreayd have the recievers they're going to open the year with, minus any potential draftees.
I don't think they'll sign a Bowe or Wallace, or especailly deal for a Harvin, Fisher can build an offense, McGuyver style, and it'll be a good one, but he'll need those draft picks for the defense, IMHO
Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said it will be important to see what QB [Terrelle Pryor] can do during offseason workouts and minicamps to get a better sense of what the team has at the quarterback position. The Raiders want to know whether Pryor can do for them what San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick did this past season. 'If you have a guy that can stay there and play 65 plays a game and do those things and also be able to throw the ball from point A to point B accurately, if he possesses those skills as well, then you certainly have something,' Olson said. 'So that's what we'll have to find out with [Terrelle Pryor]. We know what kind of an athlete he is. We need to find out what kind of decision maker he is, and we need to find out if he's a guy that can also sit in the pocket and deliver the ball from point A to point B accurately and on time and making the right decisions.'I watch a lot of OSU football and this guy was so-so as a passer......he will have to make huge improvements to even sniff the starting gig......but he does have some pretty cool tats.
Analysis: The read-option craze appears to be spreading across the Bay. Pryor has the potential to match Kapernick as a runner, but his passing skills need more polish. In any case, it sounds like Pryor will be given every opportunity to win Oakland's starting gig.
We didn't guess because this guy is so far down on our preliminary fantasy rankings... and I don't see him bumping up to a realistic fantasy ranking. C'mon, Foot. The 2nd best RB on the Patriots was Woodhead and he had minimal-to-zero fantasy relevance. If there was an <strong>amoeba</strong> category for fantasy players - he'd be on it.<br /><br />I can gaurantee that you will be the only drafting him come August. I'm sure he'll be available on the waiver wire all season long too.<br />
I still can't believe not one person even suggested my boy who I called a deepest of deep sleepers.

Foot, here's the deal...saying something like, "hey, this Jeff Demps kid is intriguing, his speed could potentially be a game changer if given a chance. He's a name to keep an eye on in Patriot's camp this offseason, and possibly a guy to snag if Ridley/Vareen falter or get hurt" is something that someone who claims to be serious about building a credible fantasy site would say. If Demps finds a niche, or better, you xan still say "I told ya so". If not, no harm no foul, you never said he was a great RB, just that he was fast and interestingI hope you don't take this wrong Foot, but I agree with this statement 100%. Funny thing is I was gonna make a post just like this last night but my puter was acting funky. Reread the front of MWHS at what you wrote and try to look at it like somebody who was just cruising around looking for FF info...............kinda funny but comes on like this guy will be in the top 5 at the end of the season.
Bravo, Treff! Bravo.
Foot, I think you should have Treff edit your posts. I like your bold off-the-wall, out-of-the-box predictions, but Treff is right - you need to put a spin on the language that grabs your target audience. Treff could be your publists. or public relations editor, or the fantasy equivilant of Alex "Hitch" Hitchens.
