I have Chad starting right now. He is @ Green Bay but Bernard is @ Detroit. Bernard has gone 2 days full speed and I am a Lions fan so I know he could light them up.

I'd go with Berrian.
I just don't know if the Bengals have gotten back to their old passing ways yet. They looked pretty bad against the Broncos (save Benson).
At this point I don't have much trust in any Bengals. So I'm still waiting to see how things go.

chad has been looking pretty awesome. i think this is a no brainer its a low WR1/high WR2 vs a WR3/4

Go with Ocho. He has the talent of a #1 WR. Now with Palmer back his stats should start to move back to the mean.
Not only that Berrian has been limited by a hamstring problem. Even if he is practicing it will still effect him. For someone that relies on his speed to get down field it's a problem.

I agree i'd go with Ocho Cinco. AP could pop of a couple long runs or Minnesota score on D and they would be up all game so they won't be throwing too many vertical routes. And that is about all Berrian does are deep routes.

Ocho by a country mile. AD will have about 130-140 yards by the 3rd quarter and a few TDs and then Chester Taylor will finish the game off with about 80 and a TD
Favre might chuck the ball around some but Berrian isn't substantially higher on the pecking order than Harvin, Shiancoe (Favre loves his TEs in the red zone) or Rice, all of whom have been healthy and have practiced with Favre more
Remember, Favre has been on the team about 3 weeks. He is still learning the players and learning the offense. Doing a spin and handing off to AD keeps the old man healthy and gives him more time to learn the playbook.
Minnesota could conceivably rush for over 300 yards in this game.

OchoCinco for sure. Berrian isn't quite up to speed yet and he isn't even a good fantasy receiver. He is a big play threat and that is all. He will have great games once in awhile but other games be absent.

Definitely Ocho. Berrian is a deep threat and Brett's accuracy on deep balls at this point in his career is awful on top of the fact that he probably has next to no chemistry with BB.
