Survivor I - David Givens Commentary
NOTE: this draft was completed on 7/24
Positives - Brady and the Patriots love to spread the ball around, so Givens will get his opportunities. Givens has been special during stretches, and has the talent to perform when he’s called upon. Had a great start to 2004 before falling off the second half of the season. With David Patten moving on to Washington, Givens will be looked upon more.
Negatives - As mentioned, Givens had a horrible end to the 2004 season, catching 19 balls for 232 yards and no TDs the last 8 games. Has a propensity to disappear for stretches.
Draft Strategy - Wanted another WR here, and it hurt when Kennison and Stallworth were taken right before. Would have taken Lee Evens here, but already had Bruce and Lelie with week 9 byes. Givens is young, and has shown decent improvement in his numbers throughout the last few years. I now have 4 solid WRs to fill 2 or 3 spots each week.
