12 team PPR, start 2 RB, 3 WR, no flex (plus QB, TE, DST, K). My roster:
QB - M Ryan RB - R Rice, F Jones, B Jacobs, M Bush WR - M Wallace, S Holmes, K Britt, D Amendola, J Ford TE - R Gronkowski DST - Chicago K - Bironas
Rotoworld says Holmes is questionable, heading for game time decision status, and Jets signed a WR off their practice squad this morning. With Amendola and Ford both not playing (Amendola for sure, Ford likely to be out), I need to pick up a WR in case Holmes can't go (which would suck, because it's a plus matchup against a bad Jags secondary). Two questions:
1. Who's the right drop? I love Ford's upside, and can't let Amendola go in a PPR league. Do I drop M Bush and worry about RB depth later? Or drop Ford and give up that upside?
2. Which WR to add? Available WR's include B Gibson, G Salas, J Gaffney, A Brown, E Sanders, B Hartline, E Decker. I don't much care for the two PIT receivers since I have Wallace already, leaning toward Gibson because I just don't trust a rookie coming out of nowhere to fill Amendola's slot position. Hartline and Decker are interesting, but Gibson seems to be the biggest upside of the bunch.
Amendola is out for quite some time & Ford is dealing with another injury, either are safe drops IMO.
I'd drop either & pick up Gaffney (he & Grossman played together at Florida) and Arizona just got torched by a rookie QB at home.

1. I agree you should drop bush. You have jacobs backing up right now which should suffice.
2. I would grab Gaffney I think. Targeted a lot last week by Grossman and he has a favorable matchup with week vs a weak ARI secondary. If not Gaffney, Id prob grab Gibson since he'll be a #1 wr for Bradford
I would drop Bush and grab either Gibson or Gaffney. If Amendola somehow comes back to play, and does so at a similar level, then Gibson's value will drop off. On the other hand, the circus in Washington has me wondering about the consistency of those targets.

I like Gibson of the ones you mentioned. I am intrigued by hardline this week, but much prefer Gibson over the long haul.
My thoughts exactly. RB depth is always at a premium, so even though DMC is rolling now, Bush still has value. I love Ford's upside, but he is the odd man out here. I'd look at either Gibson or Gaffney
