Housh really never did anything vertical with the Bengals and I'm not sure he's going to do that this year. He'll kill you in the slot and the red zone and he's got sure hands, but at this point in his career he's not going to be the kind of guy who you'll be afraid will kill you for 6 if you make a mistake covering him, be it on a deep play or after the catch. That's a #1 guy to me. Housh is a classic, prototypical #2 guy. It's possible he'll excel there but without being a classic #1 guy along with the question of what he'll do without somebody to play off of I wonder how he'll do.
Really though, it's tough to compare them. Ocho is a guy who will explode for you, Housh hurts you in the short passing game and is a lot more consistent. They're completely different guys. I'd be surprised if one of the two has more catches, yards, and touchdowns this year, so at the end of the day you have to figure out what matters the most to you when comparing them.
I did vote for 85 though. One of my favorite players in the league, if not my favorite, and I think he's going to have a monster year.
