I need a backup WR and was wondering: should I go with Braylon Edwards or Ashlie Lelie? Im worried about Cle's offense and I just dont like Lelie...what do u thikn?

I would go with Lelie..the running game Denver has should open up the passing and Lelie is a big play WR. Also rookie receivers typically take time to adjust to the game so Edwards is more of a risk.

It sort of depends on who else you have as your WRs. If you have a couple of safe picks then it wouldn't hurt to take a gamble on Braylon. His team is likely to be playing from behind quite a bit, and rookie WRs can often surprise and come up big in FF. Just look at Clayton last year with the Bucs. They had to play catchup quite a bit, and he was a reliable target for them.

Ashlie should be a fantasy starter in most formats. If you can pick him up do so.

Lelie was great for me last year
