Go Ahead And Pick Up Mike Thomas Now

We usually save the fantasy football banter for Thursday, but let me go ahead and get this out: you saw what Seyi Ajirotutu did to the Texans on Sunday, right? You know that the Texans pass defense is so bad that they got carved up by a receiving corps of Ajirotutu, Patrick Crayton, and Randy McMichael. You know that this is a terrible defense, you know that Gary Kubiak has said that he's sticking with Kareem Jackson. So if you're going to have to endure the pain, you might as well profit off of it somewhere.

Jaguars receiver Mike Thomas is unowned in basically every league. 94.3% of ESPN's leagues, 82% of Yahoo's leagues. He's going up against Jackson this week. He's basically been an average receiver the last four weeks, averaging four catches for 45 yards. But this is the Texans defense. The same one that is the second team in NFL history to give up 24+ points in each of its first eight games. Nothing is changing. Pick him up and get small consolation out of the fact that at least this awful defense helped you somewhere.
