I'd probably take Phelps though I think Braylon had 16 TD's last season but I'm just saying that because I don't have Braylon on any of my fantasy teams. I reckon he has his share of tough matchups in the coming weeks (Pittsburgh, Giants) that might throw off his TD-a-game pace.

Isn't it against the rules for Edwards to bet? O:-)

He might've had 16 TD's last season, but that doesn't mean it's an easily repeatable feat.

Phelps FTW

Smart money is on Phelps but 16 TDs is certainly within Braylon's capability.

Phelps. I realize there were two players last year (Moss & Edwards) but since 1990 there have been less than 10 players with 16 TD+ seasons in the NFL. Randy Moss (3) and Jerry Rice (2) are the only players to do it more than once.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Agreed. It's not that easy to score as a WR.

Edwards doesnt have a chance. He'll be lucky to get 17 receptions let alone TD's the way the Browns have been playing. I bet him this morning at -500 to not win the bet at this site:

Seems like a cheap price . Last season he had 2 TD's after the first 2 games and went on to get 16 for the season. This year after 1st 2 games ...zilch!
