Cass I am pretty sure he should have a big year, he isn't the greatest at getting separation but last year he was seeing mostly the opposing teams best corner. This year it will for sure the 2nd best corner, he is a player that really should have a good year and I think a lot of people believe he will.
Problem is they have so many options in Detroit. He was the #1 target at UNC, now he will be like 3rd/4th option AT BEST. The thing is, they drafted him somewhat high, and I am sure they want to use him.
What is up with Pettigrew? I know he gets hurt here and their..but is their something I am missing? Not that good?
I don't think Ebron's role will translate to big fantasy numbers right now. I think he'll have a couple of nice catches down the seam per game. He may be the main slot guy this year though. Haven't seen enough of the first team offense so far.
So I think the plan is Ebron in the slot, Pettigrew mainly blocking TE and slips out in routes.
Pettigrew is an ok blocker, a little slow, bad hands and fumbles occasionally. Sat on the free agent market for a while and couldn't find a deal. Signed a 4/16 mil deal to come back. Can't remember guaranteed money or structure.
Haven't seen them use Fauria a ton in preseason. He may steal redzone TDs as well.
Yea Ebron was defently a luxury pick at a position that rarely goes in the top 10. You have to like all the weapons that the offense now. Nothing wrong with starting a rookie off slow though. Is champ bailey signed now that Bentley is hurt?
