Food for thought: Daniels has the second-most looks of anyone on the Texans not named Andre Johnson. He should clean up on Sunday.

dont see how you start any TE over witten except maybe a handful, romo is playing great and has been in sync with witten since last yr...i know they play the bears but the bears cant cover everyone on the field, someone is going to have a huge game and the colts D has been stout too...with johnson out they can key on daniels being the main threat, id go with witten but its your team go with your gut...but i doubt witten gets anything less then 60 yds and hopeful for a TD

so would anyone actually play Owen over a WR at your flex (WR/TE) spot? Assuming you have the likes of:
Gates, Winslow, etc...

Jacoby Jones ...aka.... Obi One Jacoby

The colts D will quickly learn they will need to cover jacoby jones just as hard as andre johnson, but it won't be an easy task. Just as well, daniels will get a fair share of looks, but ol' jeb might get tossed into the game a little more too. Jacoby Jones is the Texans' version of last years marques colston in my mind. I dont know if you guys know the story behind jacoby, buts its a good one. I feel pretty strong about a great performance. the kid has confidence, hands, brains, and amazing speed...oh yeah and its not like hes too small either. He is going to learn alot this sunday real quick, and im hoping it pays off. If the game goes as the texans plan and jacoby performs as hoped its going to change the entire outlook towards the texans. It can go either way on sunday, but as a texan fan i gotta believe. Having andre johnson out of this game is huge, those are big shoes to fill by a rookie with 2 receptions on two games. Its kind of cool, this is one of those situations when an individual is being given the "chance". Like a diamond in the rough with its moment to shine. However it goes, i'll be right there watching with no more than my fantasy team on the line and maybe a side bet or two. It would be a great weekend to be in Vegas. I sure did enjoy betting against the panthers in Vegas last weekend.

27-24 Texans

if you have high end tight ends like Gates, Winslow, Heap, and Witten, then no i'd leave them in instead of using owens. but if you plan on using a weaker option like mike furrey or devery henderson, then yes i'd use owens.

well being that you live in houston and your a houstan fan im going to have to temper your expecations and put my own spin on them, yes jones is talented and will be a good wr, but lets not all get excited and think he's going to have a huge game just because he's starting...A Johnson out means the focal point at WR will be on Jacoby, Walter is not the speed threat he is, so they will put just as much attention on him even though they are playing cover 2...I dont think houston will score that many points, the colts D is fierce and when they dont really have a deep threat to face they lock down and will give up those short passes to daniels all day, but i highly doubt we see j jones have a huge breakout type of game...james jones is a better week to week play and will put up better rookie wr numbers in that offense

I'm sitting all Texans WRs this week. First I don't think Jones is ready yet, he's too raw. Second, the Texans aren't gonna be airing the ball out. What's gonna happen is that they'll pound the ball all game to keep the ball away from Manning. Jones is too risky to start IMO this week.
