Mark Clayton is Ready to Make a Fantasy Impact
Last season started out very slow for Mark as he had a rookie quarterback under center in Baltimore. No.89 also found himself as the second receiver in the offense again, behind Derrick Mason.
This year look for Clayton to take another step on his way to being a solid fantasy receiver.
For one the Ravens finally have a legit quarterback in Joe Flacco. Joe will become a better passer (especially touchdowns) every year from here on out.
Derrick Mason is getting old and while he will still be productive, I believe the wear and tear of the NFL will hold him back more every year. Also Tod Heap is having problems returning to from a bad back.
Clayton is now heading into his 4th season in the league and should start to show the reasons why he was a mid 1st round pick out of Oklahoma.
Mark Clayton's Fantasy Football Value in 2009
I believe next season in 2010 Clayton will truly bust out for a big fantasy season. But this year look for him to at least get back to his rookie totals of 67 receptions for 939 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Mark could even give you 1,100 yards and 8 touchdowns, but that will depend on how healthy Mason can stay this year. In the end Clayton makes for a very nice No.4 receiver in your fantasy football draft.
- Good Skills
- Mason's skills are on the decline
- Solid Offensive Line
- Run first offense
- While QB is good he is still young
