Texans WR Spot a Position to Watch for in Fantasy in 2010

The National Football Post is getting ready for Fantasy Football in 2010, and one spot they have put a target on is the Texans wide out spot. Here is what they have to say:

Battleground: Houston, Texas
Position: Wide receiver
Players in the mix: Kevin Walter (6-3, 218, 8th season) and Jacoby Jones (6-2, 210, 4th season)
Frontrunner: Walter
Better Value: Walter

Analysis: Jones is a trendy sleeper pick for a lot of owners entering the 2010 season and for good reason. The 26-year old is a speedy, big-play threat that scored six touchdowns last year en route to a career season. However, owners need to keep in mind that Walter just signed a five-year, $21.5 million deal this past offseason meaning the No. 2 job is his—as long as he can stay healthy.

Houston is loaded with playmakers at all of the skill positions on offense. With Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson on one side, Walter on the other and tight end Owen Daniels coming back from a torn ACL, there may not be enough targets to go around for Jones to warrant a spot on your fantasy roster.

Remember, Walter is just two years removed from a 2008 campaign in which he cracked the top-20 in scoring among fantasy wide receivers. Not only that, but last year’s disappointing performance has owners targeting him in the 12th round. That’s one hell of a value for a guy who is more than capable of posting a 62-840-6 stat line.
