    I can see the following:

    Mendenhall:
    80 rushes-4 yard average-320 yards-5 TDs
    15 to 20 catches-2 TDs

    Sweed:
    30 catches-3 TDs

    ...I was originally gonna say that I see more coming from Sweed, but about 2 catches a game and a few TDs are about right for a rookie considering the rest of the talent on offense...

    I really think mendenhall will get some serious carries come mid season.
    110 carries...4.4 average 484 yards and 6 tds.

    Sweed...36 catches 468 yards and 3 TDs.

    I also think Davis will have 3 sacks this season.

    NKy- You forgot about Ben and his 13-0 record.
    He who forgets, will be destined to remember.

    I expect that early on Sweed will be getting his feet wet and not get many chances, but after the bye week Nate Washington will rarely sniff the field unless there is an injury to another WR. Sweed is close to Santonio good and will get more reps as the season progresses. I think 30 catches is reasonable to expect from a rookie WR given that Hines and Santonio will get the first look from ben unless one of them is injuered. Sweed has to earn Ben's trust and confidence more than anything else before balls will be coming his way.

    ....Ben was a superhuman freak of nature his rookie season and would skew any and all numbers...
