Anquan Boldin will have more points than Larry Fitzgerald
Calvin Johnson will be top WR scorer
TJ Houshmandzadeh will be top 5 rated WR
Brandon Marshall will play in less than 9 games in '09
Chris Johnson will have fewer than 5 rushing TDs
Steve Slaton will average 20 points per week
Jonathan Stewart will have more points than DeAngelo Williams
Steven Jackson will lead the NFL in rushing yards
Peyton Hillis will be Denver's top RB
Greg Olson will be the top scoring TE
Schaub?? Really...Id say Warner, Brady, Brees, and Rivers at least over Schaub...Schaub only has Andre (Who's a truly amazing player) but Owen Daniels and Kevin Walter aren't exactly top-tier talent. Slaton will steal a lot of points from Schaub. I'd probably say top 5-10 QB in terms of Fantasy value...not number one.
Eli has NOBODY TO THROW TO...Plaxico is in jail, Smith and Hixon are unproven in terms of fantasy value amd won't be enough to compete with Reggie Wayne, Anthony Gonzalez, and Dallas Clark. Kevin Boss is decent for goaline scenarios, but that's about it...not a good over the middle threat like Clark.
I might agree with this next one for the two simple reasons that Fitz will have constant double coverage and Boldin is in another contract year...however, Fitz has proven that he can beat double/triple coverage (even against the Steelers number one pass defense) and make big plays. He's still improving and has increasing real and fantasy numbers year after year while Boldin has been fairly consistent. I'm still going with Larry 'Stickyfingers.'

In order for a WR to be a top scorer, he needs a QB...I wouldn't exactly say that Culpepper or ROOKIE Stafford will be good enough this year to allow for Johnson to prove hes the threat he potentially can be as a fantasy ball player. I'd give the edge to either Randy Moss with a healthy Tom Brady or Fitzgerald in a weak division with Kurt Warner.
I agree with this assumption on the condition that Hasselbeck is 100% healthy. If Seneca Wallace is getting a majority of starts late in the year again, TJ's numbers may suffer as "the other TJ" (Duckett) and Julius Jones get more carries. If Hasselbecks healthy, I say TJ explodes to maybe 5 behind Fitz, Moss, Andre Johnson, and Steve Smith.
Marshall is a funny case. He wants to be traded and the Broncos are looking for a first and fourth rounder for him. Most teams won't be willing to pay that for a team-killing wideout. If he is dealt because the Broncos lower the asking price, i can see him playing, and playing effectively for 10-14 games. But if he continues to "not understand" the playbook (which seems like a copout) he may only play from weeks 8-17 after their Week 7 bye week with an inconsistent Kyle Orton under center. I agree with that prediction.

All the black guys go on strike and there is no longer an NFL because white guys dont play any position but QB kicker and o-line
then, black guys demand higher pay and get it because us fat white guys have nothing to do on sunday
