Those in keepers and dynasties, stash this guy now and thank me later.

Jags love this kid, good size 6-1 220 and runs a sub 4.4. They are looking for someone to step up and replace you know who, it could be Burton.

If you have room on your bench take a shot.

Dang it. Thought mike brown was the guy to grab. I've been wrong almost all year on my wr fliers. So maybe it is this guy.

Mike Brown is probably more immediate and short term. Stephen is getting over a concussion but the last game he played they targeted him 9 times. Gus Bradley loves him. Just google news his name and see was comes up lately.

Actually if we are talking about the same article, the article conceded that Mike Brown is the #2 WR going forward and pointed out that there's a WR3 spot open now with Brown's upgrade and its time for Burton to step up to fill that role. Mike Brown is still the guy to own here.

I have seen quotes about Burton "stepping up," but nothing about him "stepping up to replace Blackmon." He would still be #3 behind Shorts and Brown (who played well even with "you know who" around), and let's not forget Lewis who does still get targets. I think I'd have to see something from him and the coaching staff before I go about using any space on him. Coaching staff's haven't always been the most reliable source this season (a la Spiller, TRich, etc.).

You guys are right Brown is the man for now, but he's smaller and slower than Burton and as he gets more acclimated, I can see him passing Brown on the depth chart in the near future. Anyway we will see how it plays out.

Are we so sure Blackmon is done with the Jags? Isn't it a possibility that Blackmon returns to the Jags next year and teams with Shorts again for the starting duo? That would relegate Burton to 3rd WR at best thus really negating any value he'd have for dynasty.

It's just a spec stash if you can spare the spot. I did it just because he has the measurables and he will have an audition of sorts since teh Jags are pretty much vying for high picks. I also picked up DRob. Worst case, I don't like what I see and cut them. Upside, upside, upside.
