Depending on your team, he maybe isn't a start in all situations guy anymore, but I wouldn't totally "sell high" on him either, unless you know you can translate that to definite advantage.
I just read an article that Sean Payton was quoted as saying
I've got to keep doing a better job of getting (Horn) involved early on
and then a second article that quoted him as saying
(Horn) is a guy that if we can get him some early touches, he gets his confidence going. I was excited he got his first touchdown (of the season), and his second touchdown came off a play we had put in during the course of the game, to his and (quarterback Drew Brees') credit. Those guys saw something, and we made a little adjustment.
Now I'm not about to say that Joe Horn is about to put up solid numbers from here on out, but maybe he has his coach's confidence now and will be fed a couple more passes early in the game. And if he's fed more passes and makes them they'll just keep coming.
That could be the difference between the 50 yard outings that Horn has been getting into 80 yards per game and a couple of TDs throughout the rest of the year. I can handle that from my #3 WR any day.
