Alright fellas, heres what I got:

Owen Daniels vs. Miami

OR

Aaron Hernandez vs. San Diego

OD had a piss poor game last week but I expect him to get involved early and often against a Miami defense that gave up 30 FP to the TE position last week.

On the other hand, Hernandez is a WR trapped in a TE's body and more importantly he has the trust of the greatest QB to ever play the game. Brady seems to spread it to his TE's very frequently.

It seems I have a case of good and better. Not a bad position to be in for my fantasy team but need some thoughts on this.

Thanks in advance.

What the hell should I do with Ochocinco? Try and trade him , or just drop him outright? Not hurting too bad at WR Jennings, Marshall, Branch, H Ward, Ocho.

Hernendez for sure. The Texans appear to be doing a TE by committee setup this year, somewhat like the Patriots, but the Patriots have better pass-catching TEs and a better QB. With Foster back, OD will probably only get 2-4 targets like he did against the Colts. Walter got one catch last week, that's it. Not a lot more to spread around, unless the Texans are playing from behind.

Man, you are REALLY down on OD.

My prediction is you are going to be dead wrong. He is our second best receiver, bar none, and the only reason he didn't get many targets last week is Schaub sucked when he was actually throwing the ball and the Colts sucked even worse.

Start OD. I have OD and Jermaine Gresham (who has the skills to be a top TE ala Vernon Davis and seems to have the trust of Dalton), but no way am I giving up on OD yet. What I find funny is some people seem to be higher on Jimmy Graham than OD, yet Brees spreads the ball around WAY more than Schaub. You can't really count on any of the Aints receivers.

Yes, start Owen. I'm not saying he most certainly will score more points than Hernandez but NO WAY does OD have another week like last week. If I'm wrong, Dutch, I will certainly eat me some crow and ***** and moan about drafting Owen.

Lol2slik, you get completely differing opinions and leave more confounded than when you arrived.

Please don't give 2slik4u any advice guys he's in my money league and I can assure you he is a fat jerk that you all would hate.

I thought you stuck to the Texans Talk forum slik. I think Hernandez is the safer bet here. OD is fighting for looks with Dreessen and Casey plus what appears to be a juggernaut of a running game. I think it's close but I would start Hernandez.

I would start Big Ben.

Mike Williams I guess I don't really know enough about to trust him. His numbers are good though so if you like the guy go with him.

Well played good sir.

Don't be pissed if Ckw is right and OD torches Miami for a hundo and two touches.

Go Texans

Haha, it's all good. I have OD and Hernendez in one my leagues (Brady at QB) and I had OD up last week. Still won the game, but 20 points versus 2... Eh I'll go with Hernendez on a pass first team, with decent WRs over OD on a run-first team with lots of other receiving options.

Fun conversation, Dutch. Looking forward to seeing how OD does tomorrow.

Now, I have a bit of a dilemma. I just traded Robert Meachem for Joe Flacco. So now I have a slight battle at QB.

Who should I start?

Joe Flacco or Ben Roesthlisberger

Anyone? I am leaning towards Big Ben, but man Flacco put on a good show against that supposedly dominant Pitt D.

Thats a tough one - but based on the matchup IŽd go with Big Ben.

So here are my questions for a standard Yahoo FF league:

WR - 3 out of 4:

Hakeem Nicks (questionable and on Monday Night) vs. Stl.
Brandon Marshall (obvious starter) vs. HOU
Steve Smith (Car) vs. GB
Plaxico Burress vs. JAC

HB 2 out of 3:

Jamaal Charles vs DET
Beanie Wells vs. WAS
Cedric Benson vs. DEN

TE 1 out of 2:

Owen Daniels vs. MIA
Rob Gronkowski vs. SD

Well, first quarter of the Pats game, but Hernendez has 2 catches 30 yards and a TD already.

OD has lots of time left to make some plays. But Hernendez has hit the TE benchmark for points for me this week. I always like my TEs to get about 8-10 points a game to keep them around. Everything beyond that is gravy OD will get more chances this game as he has 2 targets so far, but I just don't trust him to break out and get a TD every other week.

This is when Kubiak pisses me off. He is so irritating for fantasy purposes. It is impossible to predict who Gary is going to target, aside from AJ, in a given day.

Man I wish I had started Hernandez...
