TJ will have a great year this year because of the double coverage CJ will see. He has the added value of being a great possession WR and gets a lot of looks (deep throws and short passes).

I think Wayne really broke out last year. Some interesting stats:

2003 - 68 receptions, 838 yds, 7 TD's
2004 - 77 receptions, 1,210 yds, 12 TD's

TJ Housh
2003 - injured
2004 - 73 receptions, 978 yds, 4 TD's

They both came into the league in 2001, but Wayne obviously went into a better system and Housh was injured in '03. Wayne had a nice improvement from '04 to '05. With the now improved situation in Cincy, what kind of improvement can we expect from Housh in '05? Say 1200 yds and 9 TD's? A bit optimistic, I agree. Also the Colts defense appears vastly improved this year so they won't be in a shootout every week. It would not surprise me to see Wayne's numbers come down a bit and end up pretty close to Housh's numbers. Housh is off to a good start, but as always, its not where you have been, rather where you are going. Baltimore and Blitzburgh twice will be tough, but if Chad is shut down maybe Housh is better target. Time will tell.

Nice article by the way...

Reggie Wayne has only had one really good year. I personally don't think he's likely to repeat that anytime soon.

Do I think Housh can have one really good year like Reggie's last year? Yeah, it's entirely possible, but I definitely wouldn't bank on it.

To those who drafted Housh, good call. He should reward you greatly as a #5, #4, or even #3 WR.

To those who drafted Wayne in the 4th round as your #1 WR, a real-life #2 WR should never be a #1 fantasy receiver, or IMO even a #2 fatansy receiver. Sorry.

If the Bengals offense continues to improve then I think he is talented enough to be a season together similiar to what Wayne did last year.
Thanks to Metroid for the sig!
