In the past season it was Jay Cutler with his back to the banner showing #6.

Look who it is now.

I interpret this as, Eddie is the face of the future, and also, this is a consummate pro at WR.

Damnit....it's the new madden cover curse....can't they put Ian Gold up there - no one will know who it is and all the bad karma will 'pass on by' once it sees Gold's number.

Hate to burst your bubble, but the coaches have nothing to do with that choice.

That said, Royal is an excellent choice

If I recall correctly, it used to be Ryan Clady on the banner.

Eddie Royal was the first receiver I drafted in fantasy this year.

I don't think 120 catches is a stretch.

120 catches?

With Orton throwing the rock?

Not a snowball's chance...

Actually, the best short route option on a team that is pass-happy with short option passes? It's very reachable.

Actually that plays right into it. Orton's not going to be a down-the-field passer. He'll make his living hitting Royal on short routes and watching him gain YAC.

The rest of your receivers are pretty much balls, so Royal's going to a workhorse like Wes Welker.

Is Royal returning kicks this year? Probably not, but if so, that would be another bonus. My league counts special teams points.

I do, Broncos won't get enough first downs for those kinds of numbers.

I think more like 80-90 catches for about 1100 yrds and 7-10 tds for Royal.

Why would you say this? We'll throw the ball a lot this year, and Eddie will certainly be on the receiving end quite often.

Bob's dead on this Mark. Orton will throw baskets and baskets of short passes to Royal, 120 catches is very realistic especially with Marshall's status being in question.
