We dont need a "#1" we need another wr capable of putting up 1K in yards. Had Crabtree played whole season he would've broken 1K for sure, if we are going to expect Crabtree to post 1K, VD to post 800, we need a 3rd target that will put up similar numbers. Whether that 3rd option is Morgan, a fa pick up or a draft pick remains to be seen.
In this system VD is the #1 with our receivers coming in second place.
"Yards" isn't the issue - we need a receiver who can catch a ball on 3rd down and in the RZ.
I was basing it off of value in terms of production. We have people of capable of catching the ball consistently, just because its 3rd down their hands dont magically disappear after making a catch on the previous play. Crabtree can make RZ catches, so can VD, Morgan has been able to in the past, etc.
Your using a point I wasn't specifically illustrating, I was talking about how statistically we dont need another "#1 receiver" rather we need someone like Randle, Hill, or Jeffery or TEs like Fleener, Charles, Allen, Rodriguez, Green who is physical and capable of winning tight battles in the endzone and on 3rd down.
