It will show you that Walter ranks ahead of Plax in nearly every category for the 2011 season. Plax had an abysmal 47% catch rate. That's the rate at which he actually makes a catch when he is thrown to. Walter had a 66% catch rate. Note that Plax was targeted 40% more than Walter last year. If you go to the site and read the breakdown of each metric, and then look at what Plax did last year, it will show that he was below average.
Again, explain to me how a 35 year old Plax is better than Walter right now. Walter has a multi year contract, while Plax will be lucky to sign a contract at the vet league minimum before week 1.

kevin walter had just 30 something receptions for less than 500 yards and only 3 TDs. I don't care if he's catching every pass that's thrown his way.. it's obvious he's not getting open enough to get enough passes thrown in his direction. Walter was the top WR most of the season and he still didn't come close to the production of the over the hill WR who has a poor work ethic.. despite that WR not being the top WR on his team
