In a really tough spot this week.
First, some back ground.
My division is very competitive, fortunately I have far and away the best team in the league, in spite of my 6-2 record (two slip ups, those two losses were by a combined total of 3.5 points)
Those two losses have me second in the division to a guy who has the second best team in the league and 7-1 record-his lone loss coming to me in Week 1. Because of how competitive the division is though, I really can't risk losing. Besides, I've never had a loser mentality of shooting for second place anyways. A win this week would give me the number one seed in our division (the other division is horrid, the number one seed in that division has a losing record) and essentially lock me up a playoff berth.

So, as stated in my headline-with Smitty(whom I drafted in the 9th) on a Bye this week, and Reggie Wayne sucking this year-I'm stuck choosing between Darrius Heyward Bey or Deion Branch. ESPN is telling me go DHB, NFLN is saying go Branch. My number one WR is Greg Jennings (behind Smith of course.)

This is a big week for me, need to make sure I get it right.

Personally, I say go with Branch just because the Patriots are gonna be throwing a lot and Branch has a TD in 3 out of the past 4 games. I don't really trust DHB right now, mainly because of Palmer just arriving in Oakland.

I think Branch's recent touchdowns are a bit of an anomaly. Brady prefers his TEs in the red zone. But on the other hand, you know Bush is going to get the work in the red zone in Oakland. I just have a good feeling about Palmer and Hey-Bey this weekend. If you get a bonus at 100 yds, I'd go wtih DHB on the upside.

I'd stay away from the Raiders....logic would say to go ahead and play Branch, but call it a gut feeling, I'd honestly play Reggie Wayne.

Wayne has not gotten a TD since Week 1 and has gotten 6 points almost every week. I've consider him, but do not trust him.
DHB got 11 targets from Carson Palmer two weeks ago, and now with Oak coming off of a bye, he currently is the guy I'm favoring. He's got boom potential.

Raiders receivers tend to be switched up in targets, one week it's DHB, one week it's Denarius Moore, etc. I think TJ Houshmanzadeh's signing confounds that further.

I'd go with DHB. I am starting him, looking for the raiders to light up the broncos.

Branch has the better QB with Brady, but they are against NYG who have a decent defense and something to play for.

Either or would be a good choice you'd think, go with the gut.

DHB.


0 Catches. 0 Yards. 0 Points.

Ridiculous.
Reggie Wayne had 3 points. Deion Branch will likely finish with 2. Man I need Smitty back.

just to update you guys, I won and now am in first place in my league.
Interestingly enough, Desean Jackson and Santonio Holmes both came available in my league, and I'm hoping to get my hands on at least one. Could be a monster help for me.

Wasn't able to snag Jackson which isn't surprising. Was last in the waiver order. DID get my hands on Santonio Holmes and Antonio Brown, so I like my depth there now. Also managed to snag Peyton Hillis, which was a low risk-high reward move considering I dropped Joseph Addai to get him. Sitting pretty.
