In early and mid position, they are only worth a call if it is cheap (ie, the big blind without a raise). At that point, you are looking for trips. If trips doesn't come on the flop, you drop.
In late position, you do the same, unless nobody bets the flop. Then you throw a semi-bluff bet out there. If someone calls, you can pretty much consider your hand dead, but at least you tried to take it down when nobody else wanted it or showed strength.
