Does the Priest injury kill Green's value?

Green vs. Red, White & Blue

Overall, Blaylock's starting doesn't hurt Green's value, except that Holmes is the better receiver of the two.

THIS WEEK, however, the Pats will likely focus their defense on Gonzo, and that could have a big impact on Green's value. I honestly don't believe that KC's WRs are going to be impressive against the Patriots.

The Pats like to take out an opponent's biggest weapon, and that's Gonzo. Even if Priest were at a hundred percent, the Pats would focus on Gonzo, because he's the guy that really kills you. Holmes always gets his numbers, and the Pats can see that Blaylock will be the same way. Therefore, they take away the possession, third down, and red zone threat of Gonzo, knowing that will stall most of the Chiefs' drives.

Tynes might see a lot of action this week.

Thanks for the responses guys.This was my point all along.I just wonder if it isn't a domino effect,taking the whole team down with him.Priest is a nice outlet receiver,leaving Tony open for more catches.If Blaylock can't fill that role,will they force Gonzo out of the game plan causing Green to rely on the wideouts?We know they aren't exactly reliable,as they showed early on in the year when Gonzo was getting heavy coverage.Maybe it's overanalyzing,but with this crazy season,anything that happens is bound to make you a bit jumpy.

In an overly sarcastic response, I don't think Priest being hurt doesn't hurt his value. Green does that all on his own with his sacks, picks, and poor decision making under pressure.

Haha.. all joking aside I feel Green can still put up good numbers. But expect some sacks and turnovers too...FYI, bomb to Kennison as we speak.

He is very inconsistent and any pressure he panics. He will throw passes that one hop into the receivers arms or overthrow them.

I think he will actually have to throw a little more with Blaylock in.
