With Chris Matthews and Randall Cobb gone from Lexington, logic suggests that the receiving load falls on the shoulders of La'Rod King. King understands that people are expecting him to step up but says, "I told our team we’re only as good as our weakest receiver, and I don’t want to be labeled as the No. 1 receiver. I want to be labeled as just a go-to guy."
King is a big target for new starting quarterback Morgan Newton, and after catching 37 passes for 478 yards and five scores, it is feasible that he could double those numbers this year.
