How do you figure that? Outside of one game the Texans secondary has been elite, they are a huge favorite as well. Torrey is bery feast or famine at this point Id feel far more comfortable playing Lloyd in a neutral match up.

Patriots offense has to many mouths to feed. Bot Gronk and Hernandez are back so he could see significantly less targets. I guess it's a matter of opinion, but I would rather go with Torrey Smith and hope for a big play or two.

My thoughts on the signifigance of his injury? I know what everyone else knows at this point. He thinks he'll play next week which seems unlikely considering how quickly he was ruled out this week. He was on my Do Not Draft list this year as he had major durability concerns, plays in a very pass happy offense, and simply doesnt score touchdowns (does he have 2 this year?)

What you think.

smith and felix. texans are 17th in giving up points to WRs. you also have to factor in how hurt ravens defense is. they're going to have to score points and toss it around to keep up. this smells shootout and smith has the higher ceiling.

lloyd is also likely to be blanketed by cromartie. this is a game pats could pull away from early and rely on their run game.

Im one of Torrey Smiths biggest supporters, ask anyone, i own him in a handful of leagues and hes firmly planted on my bench this week. Jonathan Joseph will be glued to him all game. Just because a team gives up the 17th most points to WRs isnt a telling stat. Look at what the Texans give up to opposing #1 WRs, theyve shut everyone down outside of Jordy. Prior to last week they were top 10 against the pass in virtually every category.

Jets vs Pats will be more competitive then the Texans and Ravens IMO.

texans gave up 94 yards to jeremy kerley with joseph on him the week before. what you said about joseph can pretty much be said about cromartie. which #1 WRs have gone off vs. him?

patriots are 12 points favorites while the texans are 7.5 point favorites. ravens game might end up being more of a defensive struggle and i just seem them airing it out a lot.

Alright, thanks for the replies fellas.

I'd say Felix is a lock indeed, but maybe I should wait with Lloyd on his status and with the possibillities the Pats have, they might take it easy on him this week.

Torrey Smith (Texans) or Josh Gordon(Colts)? Both are pretty hit or miss big play guys, but it seems like Gordon is more likely to get more chances against that defense right?

I dont envision cromartie being glued to Lloyd, hes covered Welker in the past and against the Patriots I doubt the Jets focus is to shut down Lloyd. Outside of one game Lloyd has been pretty consistent, and as you know touchdowbs are a volume thing, especially in that offense.

Was Joseph really glued to Kerley that game? I have a hard time believing that. Is Kerley even on the field in the Jets base formation? The Texans outside of one game are elite against opposing offenses #1 WR.

cromartie was matched up with lloyd a couple seasons ago. he held him to two catches and 26 yards. cromartie was matched up with welker in the past when revis was on the field. i think he'll be on lloyd duties this game.

http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-h...6-yd-reception

^ kerley was in that game a lot and joseph was right there with him. inside slant for 36 yards. why would he not be on the field with holmes, hill and keller not playing?

let's not act like joseph is a shutdown corner. rodgers just picked on him a couple days ago.

Lol Joseph is an elite corner, he graded out as the best or 2nd best corner in the NFL last year.
