Oh I still wish I had started Hernandez and probably will from now on. But I am happy to get the points. At least OD isn't putting together another crapper like he did last week.

So here's the deal with the Texans TE versus the Pats TE. The Texans had at most a two score lead during the entire game, but still needed to produce every time the offense got the ball. The Pats at best had a 14 point lead during the game, which means they needed to keep producing as well. In the end, Brady had 40 pass attempts to Schaub's 29, but the Texans had 36 rush attempts to the Pats 24. This is what I mean by a run-first team, which is what the Texans have become. Schaub's probably not going to throw 550 times this year, and that's a good thing for Texan fans, but not fantasy owners.

Individually, Hernendez caught 7 of 8 passes for 67 yards and a TD. OD caught 3 of 5 for 25 and a TD. OD was the second most targeted player on the Texans yesterday, whereas Hernendez was the third behind Welker and Branch. It may come down to playing matchups each week, but I see Hernendez as the guy with more upside going forward. He's going to get a lot more chances to make plays than OD.

Not so fast, Hernandez could be out for up to 6 weeks.

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/...aron-Hernandez

Most people are thinking this is going to help Gronkowski's value but I'm not so sure. He was already the number 1 TE in FF (in my league at least) and it's not like they share time in the same role. They were often on the field at the same time and I've seen them line them both up all over the place. Now I'm not saying that this is going to hurt Gronkowski's value, just that it may not help as much as some are projecting.

Bah, Gronkowski is owned in all of my leagues. I'm gonna roll with Fred Davis at TE for a few of them.

Having a hard time choosing between Fred Jackson and James Starks for my WR/RB position. Leaning towards Starks since Jackson is going up against New England's D.

Jackson leads the league in rushing so far and the Pat's D isn't much to worry about. I'm starting Jackson as my flex in one of my leagues behind Ray Rice and Michael Turner. Wish I had him in other leagues though...

Should I pick up Gronkowski? I have OD and Hernandez but Hernandez is out.

Too many guys I want to pick up. Let me list my team, and I'd appreciate it if you guys would help me decide if I should drop anyone to pick up someone.

QB: Roesthlisberger, Flacco
RB: McCoy, McFadden, Bradshaw, Michael Bush, Reggie Bush, Ladainian Tomlinson, Darren Sproles
WR: Larry Fitzgerald, Mike Williams, Santana Moss, Eric Decker
TE: Owen Daniels, Aaron Hernandez (on IR)
D/ST: Philadelphia Eagles
K: Janikowski

Guys I want to maybe pickup are Gronkowski and Denarius Moore. What should I do?

It depends on who you like more, Decker or Moore. Either that, or dump one of your mediocre backs (depends on how many RB's can start in your league). I'd only use one slot for on a pure spec/upside player. If you think Daniels will produce I wouldn't make a move on Gronkowski. If you think he will continue to be Clark Kent, I'd make a move. Otherwise, start OD and you will have Hernandez in reserve for the playoffs. Dump Hernandez now and someone who needs a te will likely pick him up.

Not yes, but HELL YES! If Gronkowski was available in any league I'm in, I would have nabbed him and had him starting. Flex even if I had another awesome TE. Gotta go with the guy on a hot streak and increased looks from AH being out.

I don't care who you have to drop, pick up Gronkowski. How is the #1 TE in the league a free agent?

That's a tough one but I would probably go with Kolb. Houston seems to be a run first team this season and that could hurt Schaubs fantasy producton.
