LDT and the Week 2 Flex Challenge

With LaDainian and Anthony Gonzalez down, my depth is a bit stretched and I have a tough decision to make at Flex this week. Any recommendations on Leon Washington vs Devin Hester? With Polamalu out, I feel like Hester could be in for a big game since that seems like where the Bears are going to have to attack Pittsburgh. On the other hand, New England seemed vulnerable against the run and it seems like Sanchez is going to be doing a lot of dump offs against a clever, if not elite, defense.

Other options this week include Kevin Walter or Josh Morgan.

I would totally take Washington over Hester. I'm really not convinced Hester can stand up to a fast, physical CB like Ike Taylor (Note: Total Steelers homer, but Ike runs something like a 4.24 and has a history of doing better against big, physical receivers like TO, Chad Johnson (when he was good), and Andre Johnson as opposed to guys like Steve Smith who are small and sneaky)
