Shop for Philadelphia Eagles gear at Says WR Brown a “Player on the Upswing”


For those of you fantasy football players, if your looking for a wide out that is expected to have a solid year, look no further than the Eagles Reggie Brown., a top fantasy football site, says that Brown is one of their “Players on the Upswing” and should have a good 2007. Read below for their comments:

Reggie Brown, Philadelphia Eagles – This developing third-year player (third-year receiver alert!) is the designated big-play threat in the Eagles’ passing game. He frequently played like it last season (when quarterback Donovan McNabb was in the lineup), hauling in 46 catches for 816 yards and five touchdowns. When wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth (New England Patriots) sat out four games with a hamstring injury, Brown averaged four catches, 96 receiving yards and 0.8 receiving touchdowns per contest. Brown should lead the team in receiving, and he is a favorite red zone target of McNabb. However, keep in mind that his value is closely linked to the health of McNabb, who is coming off reconstructive knee surgery and has suffered season-ending injuries two seasons in a row. By the way, during head coach Andy Reid’s eight-year tenure as the Eagles’ head coach, only one wide receiver has topped the 1,000-yard receiving mark – Terrell Owens (Dallas Cowboys). We think Brown will become the second player to accomplish that feat. Although he probably has a little less value in leagues that have point-per-reception scoring, Brown is a decent No. 2 fantasy wideout.
