    Continuing with my lists

    1. Antonio Gates
    Last year he truly asserted himself as the best in the game
    2. Tony Gonzalez
    He's slowing down but ignore him at your own risk
    3. Jeremy Shockey
    He's staying healthy and is becoming the deadly threat he was supposed to be
    4. Alge Crumpler
    The only reliable receiver that Vick had for a long time
    5. Randy McMichael
    The wife beater will beat the man covering him as often
    6. Todd Heap
    Incredibly talented but hampered by injuries and bad QB play
    7. Heath Miller
    Became the big TE threat Big Ben really needed; played incredibly well his first year
    8. Jason Whitten
    Role has diminished immensely and has not improved much in blocking but is still a receiving threat
    9. Jerramy Stevens
    Mouth too big for his talent but not by much
    10. Dallas Clark
    Very reliable check down option for Manning but a very small role player because of the triple threat at WR

    Belongs on the list
    Chris Cooley - PUt him at fullback because Redskins rotate him in there as well but he plays alot of TE as well.
    Marcus Pollard - Still talented and plays well but went to a bad QB situation
    LJ Smith - I'm a big fan of his and he's incredibly reliable

    Falling
    Jeb Putzier - Will be reliable option for Carr but has become a tackling dummy
    Stephen Alexander - I don't need to go into detail

    Might be on this list soon
    Vernon Davis - I don't think that highly of him but I might be proven wrong
    Zach Hilton - Brees will like this Gates' sized target
    Ben Watson - played better last year, on the verge of breaking out

    Nice work and I agree there isn't anything I would change on that list.

    At this point, I probably would put Shockey ahead of TG. Otherwise, it right on AC! :tup:
