Yeah, but OD has TD's in 5 of his last 6 games, and Decker only caught two passes (none for TD's) in his last game.

Not an easy decision at all (and I realize that doesn't help).

I hope we see a 80/20 pass to run balance this week to give Foster a break.

? What?!

You'll only see an 80/20 pass to run balance if the team is down by a lot of points early and our running game has been stonewalled.

I know, Kubiak would never game plan that way. Plus the offense is built in such a way that this would change their scheme, they need the play action to pass withour OL.

I'm just saying that Arian needs the rest, and I don't want to see Tate out there.

I have a feeling that Kubes views every win as precious (which they are), and will run the hell out of the ball on the Jags, and Foster will probably see 25 carries.

Hope I'm wrong, I'd like to see 5 carries for Arian just to keep the Jags honest and 20+ carries for Forsett. Won't happen, but oh well.

Default Re: I want Andre Johnson to score.

I think they'll take some shots down the field and try to get up on the Jags early, then feed them a steady diet of Forsett. If Forsett doesn't get it done then either Arian or Ben will get more carries but I think the passing game will be effective and we'll have a quarter in there somewhere that looks like that big quarter we had against Miami in week one (in terms of points) but it will be done through the air with long passes to AJ and possibly Walter.

I think the 20+ carries for Forsett only happens if the Texans get up in the 1st half by 20+ points, which is what I'm hoping happens. That will give the starters (mainly Foster) some rest for the Lions game. If it's one of those grind-it-out close games the starters have to play the whole time that's not going to be good for the Lion's game. And, it won't be good for wear-and-tear on Foster. I hope he's got something left for the playoffs.

As for AJ, I don't think he's ever going to be the guy he was 4 or 5 years ago, but if he can play the way he has the last couple of games that's OK. And, he should be fresh for the playoffs where they need him. I just wish they would start playing the young WR's more and get them more involved in the game. Where the heck is Lestar Jean!?

Same here, OD, AJ and Schaub. Arian went #1 in my league also.

I have a division game this week, so need all the points I can muster. Right now I'm planning of playing AJ and Decker. I have until one hour before game time to change my mind!

I miss Andre TDs too. Offense just doesn't work like that. And I don't want to see fades. Those plays are wasted downs most of the time. One of my least favorite plays in all of football.

C'mon man, sure AJ scores

Still Texans have been able to score without him or a legitimate #2 WR. Another receiving weapon would force defenses to un-cover double & triple teams.

I'm happy, I'd rather watch Andre Johnson play and win in the superbowl more than worry about his fantasy stats.

Agreed, just as our team on the whole gets media attention it seems like AJ gets somewhat forgotten aside from a few highlight clips. I'd really like him to return to his old monstrous self, at least for one big game in the play-offs.

Meh. If AJ doesn't score another touchdown all season but gets a ring I think he'll be happy.

I hope, hope, hope that they make it happen this year. That guy is a class act and deserves it.
