I drafted him this year (a later round btw) because I thought that with Brady, maybe he'd be a sleeper pick. Can anyone explain why he'sn't been getting that much attention? I'm actually kinda baffled.

He's a whiner.

NE's system is a timing system. Ocho is an excellent route runner, but if you don't make your cuts a few steps early or a few steps late, the ball is going to be in a different place then you're expecting it to be. Ocho just hasn't had enough time to get it down yet. I think he'll get a bulk of his stats later in the season.

First, Brady is going to spread it around. Second, they really seemed to have targeted the TEs thus far. Third, 85 has been slow to grasp the playbook.

Njroar is right. Ocho and Brady aren't in sync yet, so he's gonna throw it to the guys he's more comfortable with. Ocho may eventually "get" it, but I still think Welker and Branch will have more catches and yards than he will.

Then to add another question. I'd like to take Ocho out of my lineup for this weekend but I'mn't sure who to put in his place. . .

My options
Jordy Nelson - GB
Torrey Smith - BAL
Titus Young - DET

They all have their own respective upsides but they're also all risks because of various reasons.

T Smith is a boom or bust guy. Baltimore will use him as a deep threat. Young is a solid pick for consistency IMO as I see him being used more for for several catches with not a lot of yards per catch at the moment. Is this a PPR league? If so I'd go Young and see if Smith get's a few games in a row with good numbers.

It is definitely PPR. I also have Calvin Johnson and Roddy White on my roster but as you can imagine, you'd be hard pressed to ever take them outta your lineup.

I was leaning towards Young or Nelson. The thing about Nelson though is that he is part of a WR corps that has a lot of talent and Rodgers is no slouch at spreading the ball around.

I don't think you could go wrong with Nelson or Young.
