    Hey all,

    There's one flex spot I'm not sure about this week:

    Terrell Owens (CIN) vs. Pittsburgh
    Deion Branch (NE) vs. Cleveland

    I want to go with Ownes just because he's consistent and puts up big numbers when they're down, which they're gauranteed to be against the steelers, but New England vs Cleveland is such a no brainer as well.

    Who would you go with? Owens has bigger number potential I think, unless the Steelers completely shut them down that is. Branch is pretty much a definite to put up some big numbers against the Browns too, though. Do I play it safe with Branch, or risk some bigger numbers with Owens?

    I usually play matchups unless they are a bonafide superstar which TO is no longer. So I would say Branch, but I am not batting too high with the predictions lately tho. lol

    Hah, thanks for the insight. They're both expected to do just under 9 points, but something is telling me that Carson Palmer won't be as accurate when there's the Steelers defense coming at him. There's a reason they're the best in the NFL right now, and playing them is a lot different than playing Miami. Also, Palmer and Owens still aren't really in sync with each other, despite the two touchdowns this week.

    Ya. One TD was a fluke that should have been an INT that was also what gave him almost half of his total yards for the game.

    Yeah it seems Branch vs CLE is the better play. However, again if PIT is up big in the second half [likely] CIN will have to air it out and that could boost TO's stats. I'd still lean Branch today

    I'm in the same boat as you this week, I need to start one of them as my flex and I'm leaning towards T.O. because I think Chad Johnson(i refuse to call him anything else) is going to be getting more double coverage and Branch has been a complete bust other than that first week, he's done nothing. I'm going with T.O., he's got more upside, even against Pit.

    One thing you have to think about is that Branch is injured. He won't be getting the playing time that he saw the first week. Brandon Tate was in on most of those plays. TO got damn lucky with his points this week. That last TD was a complete fluke. Palmer sux now.

    Hah....haha....hahaha, I'm sure glad I stuck with T.O. over Branch.

    Branch: 3 points vs Cleveland.
    T.O.: 36 points vs Pittsburgh

    I benched TO in favor of Garcon and it cost me a win. God damn it.

    I'm glad you did - I must of glanced over this post before...
    TO is their guy in Cinci, ignore all the drama before hand.. OchoCinco is going to be the crybaby in Cincy, while TO will catch all the TD grabs.

    Keep playing him ... he got 24+ points against the leagues best D.. jsut wait till he plays scrubs!!
