Maybe I don't fully understand the X, Y and Z positions but if a system doesn't allow us to play our best players that seems a bit suspect.
Morgan and Crabtree play the same position. I don't know if it's X Y or Z, i dunno Xs and Os that much, but i read somewhere that they play the same WR position. Bruce will start the season at the other end and will probably have Hill or Jones play the slot. I don't know how it will shake up, but this is what i envision:
Bruce, Morgan and Hill start the season while easing Crabtree into the starting lineup.
By midseason Crabtree starts over Bruce and Bruce is reduced to a limited role. Remember he is getting pretty old.
So by this scenario our WRs would look like this:
I know we have some money invested in Jones, but with Morgan emerging and looking "REALLY REALLY GOOD" I don't see how we can not start him. Also, it'd be most advantageous to us if Crabtree develops ASAP so that we can have a double threat at WR with the slot threat in Hill with Jones coming in to the slot position also.
That's just how i see it though.
