We have different outlooks in FF. I much rather swing for the fences on an elite talent and guy in a great situation but has injury concerns (McFadden, Matthews, Richardson) than play it safe and get a normal season that you would get out of Jennings, especially when you consider the depth at wr this year. Those guys can win leagues for you. Jennings isn't going to do that. I wouldn't go wr early this year except for Calvin but if I were give me Julio ten times out of ten over Jennings. Higher upside.
I probably would have taken McFadden in that spot but if you asked me yesterday morning it might have been Matthews.
McFadden had the same injury that LJ had, and he sucked afterwards. Its the same injury that Ronnie Brown had, and he sucked afterwards.
I do not see McFadden performing well or even finishing the season.
