It better be Tavon, just so the Rams fans who complain we gave up too much for him will have to eat their words.

I think the most productive will be Tavon Austin but i think DeAndre Hopkins will have best year.

Tavon Austin. I think him and Bradford make a formidable duo for the next decade in St.Louis.

Kenny Stills not an option? Not saying he'll have the best year but his QB is Drew Brees.


Nobody ever cares about Drew Brees though

I like Hunter be he has Locker trying to throw to him.

No love for Robert Woods... I see a lot of productivity for him. Punt returning as well as receiving.

Of all the fan bases to Locker bash.

29-42 (69%) 378 yds 2 TD 113.0 rating


You're right that it won't be Hunter, but it has nothing to do with Locker. He's currently our #4 behind Britt, Wright, and Washington.

I went DeAndre Hopkins because I think he finds himself in one of the best positions (only Dobson's might be better with a Top 3 QB); He takes the stage as the wingman to a Top 3 WR in Andre Johnson.

I think theyll make each other better and more productive.

Call me a homer but I think Patterson is going to be a surprise in part due to all the single coverage he will face.

Teams run so much single high safety against the Vikings due to putting 8 men in the box. I have to believe the lone deep safety will be hedging toward Jennings side of the field leaving Patterson all alone in strict man coverage.

That is one of the reasons I feel that the fans being overly critical of him have ignored how much of an advantage his athletic ability is going to give him starting out. You do not have to be a terrific route runner to beat man coverage.

I think it will be Tavon Austin as he should be out in opportunities to play a lot right away. Whereas in mn, Jennings, Rudolph and wright will probably be the top three receiving targets. Patterson will also be sharing time with Simpson, but I could see Patterson taking over if he is simply too productive. Patterson has shined this camp as a downfield threat making a lot of contested catches.

Not with Ponder.

Except his actual play wasn't nearly as good as those stats indicate...

Anyways, I'll go with Hopkins. I really like the situation he's in.

Not with Ponder.


Put Ponder on the Bengals and Dalton on the Vikings and you would be saying "Not with Dalton."

This team is finally coming together in terms of a well rounded offensive roster with a nice offensive line and more than 1 receiving option. Ponder is going to surprise some people this year. He really isn't much worse than Dalton if you compare them head to head.

So because of that fluke game Locker is actually good?
