Question: Can a “lesser” WR give us those numbers for a helluva lot less than Watkins at his projected $10+ salary? Really doesn’t seem like that high of a bar to me.

Reynolds? - Maybe. But I wasn't super impressed with what I saw this year so I doubt it.
Thomas? - Doubt it
Cooper? - No. Even if he could reach those stats, he primarily plays in the slot and runs underneath stuff, not deep routes. Wrong position.
A FA to be named later? The free agent WR class looks terrible this year.

And can a lessor WR affect the offense in freeing up other receivers in the same manner? Probably not.

Many considered Woods a bad signing last year, dz.

Too much money for too little talent. So much for “expert” opinions, huh?

I trust S&M on this call. No matter which way they go with Watkins.

Just been spitballin’ my own opinions on Watkins.
