Default Al Horford or Tyrus Thomas?

Lots of questions lately from me lately. All these trades have really got me thinking. Exciting, but makes me a little uneasy too. I really don't want anyone else with a similiar team to get a step ahead of me. Currently, I am in 5th place and it's going to be a close fight to get a playoff spot.
12 team/H2H/9 players are set weekly. So, keep in mind that I have limited moves and only have 3 left for the season. Here's my line up for this week:

PG Deron Williams
SG Felton
G Grant Hill
SF Rudy Gay
F Horford (or would Tyrus Thomas be better for the season?)
PF Al Jefferson
C Dwight Howard
UTIL Brad Miller
UTIL Udrich

BENCH (Basically I insert these guys according to who I play, who has the most games, or who has the hot hand.)

Devin Harris (INJ)
Biedrins (INJ)
Mike Miller (INJ)
Nate Robinson



Other FAs: Noah, Warrick, T Young

Tyrus has a possibility to be great but hes been very on and off and i wouldnt' count on him. Especially with gooden in the mix i would take horford easily since hes been so consistent and is the main center for the hawks. Tyrus's fate is still unknown and unstable so if you have limited moves i would go w/ consistency altho horford is better and more consistent imo.

Thomas over Horford would be a huge gamble. There's no doubt that in a perfect situation, Thomas would be better. He'll score, grab boards, steals and blocks, and offer decent-great %'s. But his situation is anywhere from perfect, and he's going to be battling for time, even if he plays well, because of Gooden and Noah.

Horford is the guy you've got to go with. We know where he'll play and he's going to get consistent minutes. His inconsistency can be frustrating and he won't provide scoring, but going with his boards, decent steals and blocks are probably a more sound decision for the last months of the year.

So how much do you like to gamble becomes the question
