What do you guys think about Domenik Hixon playing the Plaxico role this week?

I'm wary. Got anyone else to slot in?

Flex spot -

So im on a bye week am lost on who to put in my #2 RB and flex spots. Right now I have Jerious Norwood in my RB spot and Jonathan Stewart in my flex spot, but I have Derrick Mason and Amani Toomer on my bench. With the panthers OL somewhat decimated this week, do I bench Stewart and play Toomer with Plax out for the week?

Go with Norwood and Stewart. Surely there's SOMEONE available on the waiver wire better than either Mason or Toomer. Both are pretty easy drops, in my opinion.

Bernard Berrian is listed as questionable. It looks as if Bobby Wade is a good play this week against New Orleans, despite N.O. porous rush defense.

should i start anthony gonzalez or bobby engram at WR? if dallas clark is effective, he could take catches away from AG. BE isn't supposed to start, but he could still catch 5 or 6 balls. any advice?
