WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Seattle Seahawks

Pros: Houshmandzadeh, entering his second season with the Seahawks, is usually a lock for a handful of receptions each week. He has at least 900 receiving yards in each of the last six seasons. The team has a lot of questions at receiver, so he should quickly emerge as the team's No. 1 option in the passing game.

Cons: If quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (back) cannot stay on the field this year, there are serious questions about the Seattle passing game. Like the rest of the Seahawks, he has to learn a new system under new head coach Pete Carroll. Despite scoring 21 touchdowns from 2006 to 2007, Housh typically doesn't score a lot, and had just three touchdowns a year ago. He is also on the wrong side of 30 and is recovering from offseason hernia surgery.

Fantasy tip: If you're looking for steady, consistent receptions, it's hard to go wrong with Houshmandzadeh, and he typically comes at the expense of a seventh-round draft choice. His value is higher in point-per-reception style leagues and should be viewed as a low-end No. 2 fantasy football receiver but can be had as a third in most leagues.
