Steelers WR Plaxico Burress: 'I know I can dominate in the red zone'

This is cute.
Plaxico Burress @blackjack turns 36 years old prior to this season, but he doesn't think age is going to slow him down.
"I know I can still play, I know I can dominate in the red zone," Burress said via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette. "Just go out and play at a high percentage. In those one-on-one opportunities, just succeed at a high rate. I know I can."

Fantasy Analysis:

Wide receiver is a position with plenty of intrigue for the Steelers. Can Antonio Brown handle being a No. 1 wideout? Can rookie Markus Wheaton deliver much-needed immediate production? Who is going to be their third receiver? But I don't think the Steelers are so desperate that they will look to Burress to be a big contributor. It also doesn't help that Burress has little to zero separation speed left. Yes, his height makes him an obvious target for a handful of touchdowns; so, he's basically the WR equivalent of someone such as Scott Chandler? Great. Plax's days as a fantasy notable are over.
