Hixon

Is Hixon someone I should still stash away on my bench? He has shown nothing yet and Manningham did look good the other night, could he cut into Hixon's time? I took Hixon because of Kubiak pred. but I could use his slot to pick up a TE/Def/QB as a fill in when my starters have a bad matchup or injury BUT at same time I do not want to give up on Hixon if FO feels he will turn things around (it has only been 2 games and only 2 rec.; the injury is nothing from what I understand).

Thanks.

I took Hixon too. However, I think its important to understand why KUBIAK made that prediction - They made it because without Plaxico, the offense had to go SOMEWHERE on the team, and Hixon seemed the most likely choice. Hixon has never been an amazing player and may never be, KUBIAK was just relying on a higher number of targets, that seem to be going to Smith and Manningham instead. I wouldn't start him for a few weeks if I were you and dropping him might not be awful.
