I would like some thoughts on Troy Brown. Whether or not he will rebound. And his place on a Fantasy Football Start or bench.

well, it depends on who your starters are, but Troy Brown is only one of many options on the Patriots. Brady likes to spread the ball around. In a league where you get a oint for a reception Brown is probably worth a starting spot, but otherwise I would bench him. Even with a lot of catches, Brown doesn't get much yardage or TDs.

He's worth starting against the Jets.

I think Ferguson and Brown are a toss up personally.

Brown can be the most frustrating WR. He's got horrid YPC.

I had him last year and had no choice but to pick him up again this year. He is definately a hit or miss type player. Last week he had 7 cathes for 43 yards. Take away his 16 yard catch and you have 6 catches for 27 yards. 4 1/2 yard average. I promoted Andre Johnson to my number 3 and moved T Brown to my 4th receiver spot regardless of who they are playing.

Would you promote Keenan McCardell or Bobby Shaw over Troy Brown

ya, if that counts in your league, don't use him.

His YPC is so low because of the Patriots short passing attack, Brown will only get the ball maybe 3 yards past the line of scrimmage. Sometimes, he'll even get it right off the snap. He is the Pats underneath receiver. His YPC will not increase any time soon.
