Horn Comeback?

Postby Drew_70 » Wed Oct 25, 2006 7:10 pm

Horn is coming off a bye week and b4 that had 2 TD's +100 yds. Is this a Fluke?...or are other teams targeting Colston more allowing Horn to get open? This duo might start to look like Gates/McCardell of San Diego yesteryear when Brees was with them.

Even though Horn is getting up their in age, I think he has a chance to have a breakout the rest of the season. What do you guys think?

I drafted him with high expectations in all leagues because he went late in draft, never panned out in beginning of season so I moved on....but he could very easily. I dont think he should be on any waiver wire. I think Reggie Bush as a receiver has hurt him more then Colston.

Horn has really turned it on the past 3 games. Seems to have worked himself back into a #1a and #1b situation with himself and Colston, instead of Colston-#1, Horn-#2. I think he is a must start going forward, solid fantasy #2 WR if he continues to see equal (or more) targets than Colston.

I would compare it to:

2005
McCardell = Horn
Gates = Colston

IMO If Brees is getting what he wants comparable to SD a year ago (Colston-Gates, Bush-LT2, Horn-McCardell) and meshing offensively then yes, Horn should not be on the waiver wire. I am getting Horn via trade hoping it may pan out. Gotta love Fantasy and hoping predictions come through.

Thanks for your post BTW.

I don't think Bush is hurting Horn or Colston in the least. His presence actually helps them IMO, because he commands defensive coverage from DBs and opens things up for the WRs. And even though Bush has the most receptions for a RB in the entire NFL, it really is coming at the expensive of the New Orleans' TEs, who have virtually been non-existant this year so far.
