Colston out and other fantasy updates

Sigh. Marques Colston is undergoing surgery on his thumb that will keep him out of the game for 4-6 weeks. My receiving corps in multiple leagues just took a hit. With few options in one league, I just snagged David Patten; I had a hard time deciding between Patten and Devery Henderson but I think Patten is more of Brees' go-to guy and will hopefully fill in nicely for Colston. This should also increase the value of Bush and Shockey a bit so if you aren't already starting those guys, give it some serious thought.

I cried a little bit when i heard the Colston news =(

I have picked up Patten as well, though a good argument could be made for Henderson. Henderson is hit or miss though, when hes on he is great otherwise you will wonder why you have him on your roster.

Thanks for the plug, I'll be sure to return the favor. I agree with going with Patten over Henderson - Patten is sure to get 4-5 catches, while Henderson is boom or bust - he could catch nothing, or 3 balls for 120 yards.

Best line ever written in a fantasy football article "... the Rams' passing game blew more than Rock Hudson in Greenwich Village."

I had to get rid of Colston in one my leagues and have picked up DeSean Jackson as neither Patten or Henderson were available in my league - we'll see how that goes. Certainly not a fair trade. But Devery is available in my other league, so I'm picking him up and getting rid of the sack-magnet David Garrard (my 3rd QB). Hopefully Drew throws a few Devery's way this weekend.
