Im very surprised not to see Moeaki mentioned. Given that hes been at worst the number #2 option in the passing game (he is tied with Bowe with 23 targets) and the atrociousness of Houstons pass defense both in general and against TE's I really thought he would be +10% or so

So who has the chutzpah to sit Forte for Torrain? Torrain looked poor last week and Forte has potential in the passing game. Thoughts?

Forte is boom-bust. I have him in a PPR league and he is VERY inconsistent, I benched him last week because of the match-up and Cutler being out, but Forte got lucky both in rushing and passing. Luckily, Santana Moss, Hakeem Nicks, and Danny Amendola produced enough points to win.

So roll the dice and see what happens, but in general he produces the most points so it's worth a gamble.

In a non-ppr I like the idea. Forte is too good of a receiver to be sat in a ppr I think. Also great use of chutzpah
