While his addition to the Ravens receiving corps certainly makes the Ravens offense that much more lethal, Baltimore was hardly the most favorable fantasy destination for those who drafted T.J. Houshmandzadeh in fantasy leagues.â†µ
Whereas with teams such as Washington, Minnesota or Oakland, Housh might have instantly become one of his team's primary targets, instead he becomes a slot receiver who, depending on how he fares, might have an issue once Donte Stallworth returns from injury later in the season.
Houshmandzadeh also makes for an interesting dynamic in the Ravens passing game. Neither Anquan Boldin, Derrick Mason nor Housh possesses the ability to stretch the field. They're all reputed possession receivers, though good ones at that. This could actually stand to help Ray Rice, as the team may have fewer big plays in the pass game until a deep threat emerges.â†µ
