Caught a little bit of flack for my post earlier today about a bad week for Michigan WRs, but this stuff keeps happening. Hopefully nothing serious and maybe Hecklinski can sacrifice a chicken to ward off this AIRBHG-like spirit.
From Scout's Allen Trieu:
Hearing Drake Harris injured his hamstring at a scrimmage tonight. Will post more details when I can get them
EDIT: From Tommy Doles' dad and GR TV sportscaster:
Drake Harris injured a hamstring tonight. Eagles coach Don Fellows says he will be out for opener vs S. Christian. #news8
Fournette declared four of his five official visits. He added LSU to the list and so it is LSU, Alabama, Florida, Miami and the fifth is Michigan or USC.
According to his dad it WILL be Michigan.
This should work out over time of course.
Didn't see this posted. Either that or I'm just blind or lazy.
I guess I missed the CRex post awhile back and only first read about this after Heiko asked Borges about it at yesterday's presser. Essentially receviers break down into 3 categories:
Hands Guy: Dependable at catching the ball.
Deep Threat: Can get six points
Route Runner: Most likely to be open.
How do our WRs fit into these categories? I see it as the following:
Route Runner: Jeremy Gallon is poised for stardom and has multitude of shifty moves and excellent footwork to consistently get open.
Hands Guy: Drew Dileo not only provides YAC but will grab anything close to his catching radius.
Deep Threat: Jehu Chesson looks to fill this role (along with Gallon).
Losing Amara Darboh defintely hurts but we at least seem to have the depth to fill in for his absence. Borges went out of his way to day how suprisingly fast Darboh is but I think that was more in relation to his size. Chesson has legitimate track speed and we will need him to at least run deep routes and threaten the field vertically.

Who else is getting excited for fantasy football?! Found a piece about which Lions (other than Calvin) to potentially have on your roster this year.
