So let's get this all out in the open and address our receiving core.
As of the Edmonton game, our starting receivers (with depth receivers showing) are:
WR1 ----- SB1 ----- RB/SB ----- SB2 ----- WR2
Tranks -- Watt ---- Durie -- Copeland -- Owens
So where can improvement be made?
First... Rideau should start over Tranks, at least based on what I've seen in the Edmonton game.
Copeland is not going anywhere I am sure unless he is injured as he basically leads this offence. He played good the first couple games but has been mediocre the last little while. If he is going to be a go-to guy he has to be open more than just the last 5 minutes of a game.
Addressing Watt, I think he is playing as well as anyone else in this core but everyone is quick to jump on that one drop he made that would've been a touchdown.To be completely fair, that pass was over Watt's shoulder which is often hard to catch. Still, Watt should have turned around to catch it. Bell missed a lot of opportunities to pass to Watt. I still think Watt is a good receiver, had he of made that catch, which was his only drop on the night, he would have had over 100 yards and that would be in a game where Bell only got 200 yards total. Still Watt picked up 64 yards and could have got a lot more.
Durie is a great option I think, his running is good and his receiving is good when he gets open. I think we should keep him as he is a dynamic option.
Owens really in my mind is the odd man out. He is a great kick returner and put in the offence once in a while can make a really good catch but I haven't seen consistency from his receiving and he has fumbled a lot. I also think his focus on receptions has made his kick returns worse.
So at this point in time...
Tranks, Owens and Rideau at this point I think could all be replaced with other better import recievers...
The problem would be finding them and if Rideau starts over Tranks that leaves one starting position open. Is there any good receivers we could target?
