Calico lovers.....

I would definitely start Calico over Boston, keep an eye on Moulds injury status. I would be tempted to start Calico over him as well. Uncle Phestuss suggests that if you take away Calico's TD last game he doesn't even show up on radar. But you can't take away his TD, and the Titans are a pass happy bunch. Plus early in the season McNair was looking for Calico in the red zone. So unless Moulds says he is 90 % or better, I'd go with Tyrone.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Both could put up a goose egg -- I've gotten several from Boston. The tough part is starting Calico, and then watching Boston have a breakout game on the bench. It happened to me when I got Peerless Price via a trade and left him on my bench that week -- the one where he exploded.

Ultimately, it may be worth a shot. Mason is streaky, to say the least, and Calico had a bye week to work more on rhythm with McNair.


Yea i would start calico over boston as well. If boston does burn you, you can rest assured that next week he'll have 20yards.

Calico is in a crowded situation even after Bennett's injury. You never know whose day it's going to be in TEN. I'd use the "wait and see" approach. I'm guessing not much changes.

Fair enough. ;-D

However, even with the TD, Calico and Moulds scored the same amount of fantasy points (11) week 8. (based on 1pt-rcpt, 1pt p/10 yrds, 6pts-TD)

The point is that a 75% Moulds is >= to a 100% Calico.

I'm considering starting Calico instead of D-Jax (who's facing a still tough secondary in the 'Skins this Sunday).

The reason - Miami's nickel backs are relatively small and they gave up a TD to Indy's 3rd WR, Troy Walters, last week. I'm hoping McNair and Calico can do the same.

Too speculative?

Nope. That's why he gets his first start with me this week and Driver rides the pine.
