I was just going to say,
But they aren't switching situations, and situations are part of FF strategy.
With that said, I'll take Burleson. When you're looking at two WRs as close as these two you have to take into account the QBs and lines they play with. The Vikings' line isn't what it used to be, but it's still eons better than the Texans'. As far as QB there's no contest between Culpepper and Carr. Daunte will get the ball to Burleson much more often and much more accurately than Carr will be able to get it to Andre.
Both guys have solidified the starting role, so I'm not too worried about either number two being close enough to push them for the job. The Vikings' second WR is a ton better than the Texans' no matter who ends up getting the role. Which means Burleson will see a lot less double teams than AJ will, which always is nice for the WR.
There's my opinion, IMO Burleson's got much higher potential than AJ does, and I don't see the risk being all that high.
