I hate to do it but I have to drop someone for a kicker. I think Gaffney and Williams are the safer picks but without significant upside. I really like Jones' chances for a breakout year and think he has the highest ceiling but he also has a lower floor than the other two. He should also do punt returns which increases his value a little in my league.
I'm leaning toward dropping Gaffney right now. Thoughts? I'll probably pick up Tynes but Rackers and Vinatieri are also available.

Mike williams has alot of upside, im sure you know...hes a guy who probly couldve been drafted the first round this year on his talent alone, but Additude and off the field issues made him fall to the 4th, now he is the No1 guy on a team that is likely to be trailing behind in games whichis a nice recipe for Top25 WR production
We have seen what WRs with immense talent can do coming into their rookie seasons when given the starting Job.
Desean Jackson, Eddie Royal(smallish), Crabtree, Nicks.
All of these guys mentioned lit up CBs when they became starters. Mike Williams is the No 1 guy, and full time starter...WR2 numbers by midseason are very very possible.
Jacoby Jones shouldnt be dropped in any format, im not getting into it with him...he is just da man to own in late rounds, there is no reason to drop him.
Gaffney is the oddman out, and is easily the worst man on the team...drop him
Mike williams has a great matchup week 1 against cleveland. Im starting him as my WR4 in one of my leagues. You should start him too.
It might be a long shot but i noticed you have Sproles any chance he could/should be on the chopping block instead? I mean your fairly deep at RB and sproles wont see much work this year with Matthews in town. As far as the kickers go take Tynes, Vinatieri is pretty irrelavent in terms of fantasy

Thanks for all the replies. I made the move I've been leaning toward and dropped Gaffney for Tynes.
I'm intentionally deep at RB since we can start up to 4 and it's a 12 man league. I think Sproles would have been an option to drop in a standard league but not with return yards. I still think he has value as a change-of-pace RB and is one of the top return options.
Would you really start Williams over any of my current starters? I've moved Cribbs in as my WR2 since we do count return yards at 25yd/pt and Wallace will have Dixon throwing to him. I don't think Williams is a better option than Floyd, Cribbs, SJax, Charles, Foster, or Forte. Maybe he'll prove me wrong but I don't think I'll start him week 1.
