Any opinions on starting Deion Branch v. KC or Derrick Mason v. Cleveland this week? Which one would you go with?

hey terpfan,

I have the exact same choice to make. Mason or Branch, BUT im up against T brady this week. So does that make Branch the better pick ? So everytime Brady passes to Branch im making points too.

Make sense ?

I also have Mcnair as my QB, and he isnt in the best shape right now, so that may slow mason this week.

Opinions please .

Nfl.com has this to say:

Injuries on the Tennessee side won't help its offensive output, but WR Derrick Mason always looks forward to facing the Browns. He registered 203 receiving yards and three scores against Cleveland in two games last year.

Um ... correct me if I'm wrong ... but that's about 100 yards a game and 1.5 touchdowns per game ... if those are his BIG GAMES I wouldn't hesitate to go with Deion Branch, who has been putting up decent numbers against much stronger secondaries. The only downside to Branch is wondering how much of the ball Troy Brown, David Patten, and Donald Hayes will see, not to mention Cameron Cleeland and the RBs catching passes out of the backfield. I can't help liking Branch, thought; he has star written all over him and will likely take over a starting spot at some point this year, especially since Patten's good hands skills are so much better suited for a 3rd down receiver role. KC is so bad that it's not inconceivable that New England will have three 100-yard receivers.

Cleveland's pass D is much better than KC's...

Branch (even tho he's a #3 WR for NE) gives you more upside and is clearly becoming Brady's favorite target.

McNair and Mason are both still dinged up...
