Despite reports that Blackmon looked lost, I think he's been okay against decent competition in the 2 games he has played. 8 catches 120 yards in about 5 quarters with Gabbert.

With Robinson almost certainly headed to be a bust, Blackmon is most likely to get a hell of a lot of targets. Never really liked robinson and felt they overpaid for him. But as a #2 he might be ok, might.

60 receptions with 850 yards wouldn't surprise me at all.

I'm guessing he gets about 700 - 800 yards. Gabbert targeted him a lot in Baltimore the other night.

About right. 800 yards and 6 touchdowns would be my guess. That wouldn't be bad for someone playing with the worst starting QB in the league.

70 receptions, 1154 yards, 8 TD

Better than AJ Green? With Gabbert throwing him the ball?

I'll go 70/870/5, and a pedestrian season from Gabbert which would be worlds better than what we saw last year.

I think 60, 800, 5 sounds about right.

I'm right in that 800 yards 6-8 TD range as well, but I wouldn't be shocked to see him blow past that if he is their only legit wideout. I could easily see him being force fed some passes.

If Blackmon is healthy all season I think he gets over 1000 yards receiving. He's going to be Gabbert's first, second and third read on every pass play.

And Blackmon has a QB with a gun slinging him the football, not the case with AJ Green who would have had more opportunities to make plays if he had a more physically gifted QB.

It's not like having a gun is the only way to get a WR the ball. Being accurate counts for a lot too and Dalton is worlds more accurate then Gabbert has ever shown to be. I don't know why poeple assume Dalton held AJG back last year, he had an excellent rookie season with a ton of targets, maybe going forward he may hold him back but last year I didn't see that as the case at all.

i could see him putting up 8-10 TDs honestly even with gabbert being terrible he could get that. The dude is a nightmare to cover and has looked good so far. Mike Williams-like rookie season is possible
