The 2009 free agent WR class just got larger, so here’s a quick overview of the veteran who have suddenly hit the market, with some teams I think could use them.

Harrison would be a decent fit, but the Eagles would preferably add a receiver with a little more size. Otherwise, he’s an all-time great, so he’d be a great #3 or even #2 for pretty much any team.

 

Laveranues Coles – Of course, the first team you have to think of is the Dolphins, where his boy Chad Pennington is. They could use him, too, and he’s a good fit for what they do.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
