Jennings : Driver :: Houshmanzadeh : C Johnson ?

Postby saundman2000 » Fri Oct 20, 2006 4:44 pm

Jennings is to Driver as Housh is to CJ ?

I'm inclined to think so. The last three weeks Jennings has gotten more looks, catches and TDs than Driver.

I think what's happening is that Driver and Johnson are attracting so much coverage that their nearly as talented counterparts are much more wide open on a regular basis. Even to the point of making them their respective QB's favorite target.

So you could make the argument that you would rather have Housh and Jennings on your fantasy team than Driver and CJ.

Is this for real? You think it will continue to be a trend through the rest of the season?

Saudmann, as insightful questions go this is a huge one. If the trend continues, this will be huge for the season and while Jennings and Housh would be buy highs, it would still be worth dealing for them.........

I have tried dealing for Housh already, and no dice. Part of why Driver hasnt been doign better is drops and he is hurt as hell. The guy is tough as nails though so he has been playing through it, but that has reduced his performance. That and the aforementioned drops. As a GBay fan I only expect to see Favre's confidence grow in Jennings. It still is just too hard for me to break years of fantasy habit/observation and just say Jennings and Housh are better. It has been what, 3 games of outperformning Johnson and Driver? If it continues for another week or two, yes.

The problem with that is it will already be too late to even buy them high because their owners will be 100 percent, instead of 90 percent sold on them being true #1's on their teams. What do people think?

id take housh and jennings all year long over the other 2....


people seem to forget this is week 7, well into the season and about at midpoint, its not preseason anymroe, and its for sure not last season or the past 5 seasons....


the trends that you have seen are going to continue, this isnt the case of one good game, or a few lucky games, these players have performed well for some time now, not that driver and johnson will have bad seasons, but i dont think they will be better then the wr opposite each

While I agree about Housh over CJ I don't think Jennings surpasses Driver if Driver is healthy. Look at Driver's stats over the first few games, they were monsterous. When he is on the field he is definately Favre's favorite target.

Drivers stats were much better in the first few games because Jennings hardly played at all. The first game i dont think he even caugt a pass. The last 3 games he has become a huge part of the offense.

I would rather have Jennings and Chad than Driver and Housh. Simply put, I think Jennings is replacing Driver as the #1 receiver in GB, while nobody will be replacing Chad in Cincy anytime soon.

I have to disagree with you there ORS. While Chad's worried about his next witty comment Houshmandzadeh's worried about catching passes. The times are-a-changin' in the Queen City, and CJ vs. Housh is rapidly becoming sizzle vs. steak.

I'd take Chad and Driver over TJ and Jennings. I see more of a flip back to previous years when defenses now shift more towards the hot playing WRs. Chad and Driver will get out of their slumps, and will be back to #1 producing WRs on their teams very soon.

As the attention turns towards Housh as will Chad's looks. I consider him a different breed of the cocky receiver. I saw an interview on Fox last season where he was asked if he considers himself one of the top receivers in the game. I expected the usual, 'Hell, yeah'. Instead he said he can't put himself in that category until he helps his team win a Super Bowl, then maybe he can be considered one of the best in the game. I just see a guy having fun and pumping himself up. I don't like showboating, but I he's a team player, not a TO, imo.
