Peerless Price: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Really, it's become a slow news day when the Bills don't have a guy go out for the season, as Price becomes the ninth Bill to join that list. Bills coach Dick Jauron said Price will undergo an operation Friday and he would be placed on the injured reserve list next week. Price complained of neck stiffness, the Bills got him tested, and a more serious problem was discovered, which Jauron said he believed was a cumulative injury and not the result of any specific play in a recent game. Josh Reed and Roscoe Parrish will see an increase in playing time as co-starters across from Lee Evans.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Peerless Price.
Price had a disappointing year in 2006, gaining only 402 yards on 49 receptions and no touchdowns. Price's production has declined every year since 2002 when he had 1252 yards and nine touchdowns. He has failed to eclipse 1,000 yards since then. Don't expect him to this year either. Although Josh Reed and Roscoe Parrish are expected to share time in the No. 3 spot (the slot position), if Price doesn't produce this year expect them to cut into his playing time. Even if Price remains the No. 2 man, Parrish will probably surpass him in terms of production this year.
After leaving Buffalo for a huge free agent deal with Atlanta before the 2003 season, things went downhill for the former second-round pick. In 64 games with Buffalo, Price had 232 receptions for 3,302 yards and 22 TDs. He never came close to that level of production in three seasons with Atlanta and Dallas, regressing from 64 to 45 to just six catches across those years. Price will provide veteran leadership to the young receiving corps in Buffalo following the trade of Eric Moulds, and will hope to get his career back on track by winning the vacant #2 job. If he wins that, he'll have some value in deeper leagues again, though Andre Davis seems to pose a decent threat there. Plus, the Bills don't have the look of a team that's going to put up mega passing game points.
Price was the single worst per-play receiver (100 targets or more) in the NFL last season, averaging just 5.3 yards per target. Not only did he average just 12.8 yards per catch, but he managed to catch a league-worst 42 percent of the balls thrown his way. While things can only get better as the Falcons enter their second season in the West Coast offense, even a 40 percent improvement would put Price in the bottom half of the league on a per-pass basis. Price is still a good athlete with the speed to get deep and the quickness to make defenders miss. And as the No. 1 wideout on his team, he should see another 100-plus targets. If last seasonís first-round pick, Michael Jenkins, can emerge as a viable receiving threat, and Michael Vick can get more comfortable in Atlantaís scheme, Price could once again display some of the big-play skills he showed in Buffalo three seasons ago.
Last year was lost for Price as soon as Michael Vick broke his leg. Price caught an off-the-charts bad 45 percent of the 141 passes thrown his way. Letís say that figure improves to a more representative 60 percent in í04. Thatís another 21 catches, assuming the same number of passes are thrown his way. And everything will be different for Price this year. Vickís leg has healed, thereís a new offensive system, and Price has moved to flanker, which means heíll be used as the motion receiver to ensure a clean release on the snap. Price should be drafted well ahead of his 2003 productivity. Just remember that heís still an unproven go-to receiver.
Price will have a lot of adjustments to make with the Falcons - for one thing, he'll be receiving double coverage just about all the time, and for another, Vick threw almost 200 passes less than Drew Bledsoe did last year. Still, Price is probably too talented not to produce quality numbers, and he'll also learn that Vick's most successful plays are often broken ones. In other words, if Price learns to never give up on a pattern, no matter how far downfield he is, Vick should find a way to hook up with him on some long touchdowns.
