Mike Sims-Walker?

Is there some reason MSW is only projected for 19 receptions this year? Does he have some horrible injury I don't know about, or does Kubiak really think he's going to have fewer receptions than Darius Heyward-Bey, Matt Willis, Kris Durham, and David Nelson, or is this a horrible oversight?

Mike Sims-Walker is currently listed as the number four receiver in St. Louis.

So, in essence, the #4 WR in St. Louis is expected to get 19 receptions. I get it. It seems like there's not going to be a ton of value initially then, as teams put out bogus depth charts based on who's healthy, who the incumbents are, etc.

Thanks for the quick reply...I've purchased Kubiak every year, but I thought that you guys projected roles and playing time, rather than rely on the official depth chart. Nothing wrong with that, it's just good to know so I can adjust. I'm fairly confident that MSW is going to be the #1 WR for the Rams, so I could just give him Danario Alexander's line.

Or, I guess the easy solution is not to download Kubiak until the very latest update before my draft.

There will be an update later this afternoon that moves Sims-Walker into the top position. It was a mistake on my part, based on a depth chart from before free agents could practice with their teams on August 4.
