The case for Andrew Peacock

Andrew Peacock is one of my favorite dark horses at wide receiver. The kid is quick, he is elusive and has some good hands. He can develop to be a real threat on the Detroit Lions receiving corps.

Luckily, he also qualifies for the practice squad, which is where I am putting him at this season. Give him a little more time learning, cleaning up his routes, and he will be one of the better receivers we have. Plus, being on the practice squad, he will have the ability to be brought up in the unfortunate case where one of our receivers gets placed on IR.
