He does a great job catching poorly thrown balls and consistantly getting behind defenders. So that is his role. He has admitted himself that he was abused physically in the Red Zone and underneath.
Porter is a more all around receiver at this point. The argument will not be finished until they both hang it up though.
BTW, He has ZERO TD's in the REDZONE the last two year's fontaine. That is totally unacceptable even for a #2 WR.
I think this sums it up for the Lelie lovers…….
No one hear hates Lelie, we just want him to blossom more and become complete…not just a fly pattern receiver. You don’t use a #1 pick on a WR to run fly patterns. Even Moss runs underneath stuff…and he’s a p***Y
In order for Lelie to succeed, he must start blocking and running underneath as well.
and Zero TDs in the red zone is a joke
