ASSUMPTION ONE (TE's 160 catches) We get about the same production from TE's that we got in 2011 (the best ever by a pair of TE's). We now have Ballard in a addition to Graonk and Hernandez (and even Hooman/Fells). ASSUMPTION TWO (RB's 60 catches) We increase RB catches by a bit, even though our best receiver is gone. ASSUMPTION THREE The patriots are still a 55% pass 45% run team. WIDE RECEIVERS (what is left or 180 catches) We could have three 60 catch receivers. We have one on the team. I would note that when we are talking about the #3 receiver, we really mean #3/#4/#5. Together these players might account for 60 catches. This is especially true if we run fewer 3 WR sets. So, that leaves us with Amendola 60 ???????? 60 Others 60 (we have Jones and some scrubs) CONCLUSION IF the TE's can be healthy, and IF the RB's continue to improve in the passing game, then we need one "top" receiver and a #3. Jones is likely good enough to compete with the JAG's for the #4 spot.
