    Those guys are all better than Fitz right now, I think. Yes, Fitz is getting a ton of targets in a wide open system. Imagine what a good wideout would do in this offense?

    Here's another way to think about it: through Week 1, Fitz was 44th in DYAR according to Football Outsiders. Odell Beckham was 43rd, so there's obviously (maybe) some noise in those numbers.

    Fitz has 3 1st downs in 13 receptions so far this season.

    At this stage, I would take Fitz's over almost all those guys except one. Ridley is the exceptions, based on age and production so far. Over the first two games, Fitz's has out-produced the rest on that list. Marvin Jones and Woods have been garbage so far.

    I have Woods on my fantasy team his biggest issue is he's had 2 TD's and a long catch all called back by penalties. He's a very good player.

    As it relates to this conversation, Fitz was called a "below average #2" behind the likes of Woods, Jones, etc... So, would you rather have Woods over Fitz? Regardless of what's been called back by penalty, I think I would rather have Fitz any day.

    It depends, if you mean one game I'll take Fitz. If you mean right now on my team I'd take Woods because he's 9 years younger and seems to have come into his own the last 3 seasons( 2 previous plus this one) with the Rams.

    Don't get me wrong Fitz makes incredible catches and is off to a great start but he is also heavily targeted, ESPN says 24 times in 2 games, and has 13 catches. Woods has 15 targets 10 catches. Fitz has twice as many yards but again Woods has had 2 TD's and another long catch called back, or his stats would look very similar to Fitz, with more TD's, and far less targets.

    Fitz is one of the best to ever play and I can't think of a Wr I'd prefer to throw to if I need one catch or even 1 game, but he's 36 years old, my guess is his numbers this year will start to come down in terms of YPC closer to where they've been in recent years.

    Fitz has less competition on the roster which means more attention from the defense, but also more chances to make plays. Woods has to share the ball with other Wr's and has a run game which means less attention on him, but also less chances to make plays.
