Drop Hernandez or Henne for Fred Davis or Keller? WHIR!!!

Postby liono123 » Wed Sep 21, 2011 2:49 pm

I have Vick as my starting QB and Freeman as a backup. Henne is my QB3 and I dunno if I'd ever start him over Freeman or Vick.

I have Antonio Gates on my roster, but we can start a second TE in the flex. Hernandez was very good for me before going down (this is a PPR league). Do I drop Hernandez or Henne to pick up Keller or Fred Davis?

This is my starting squad this week:

QB: Mike Vick (Freeman if Vick is out)
RB: Jahvid Best
RB/WR: Darren Sproles
RB/WR: Roddy White
WR/TE: Jeremy Maclin
WR/TE: Antonio Gates

Bench: David Nelson, Jordy Nelson, Ladainian Tomlinson, Reggie Bush, Mark Ingram, Aaron Hernandez, Josh Freeman, Chad Henne
12 Team $ (PPR + Return Yardage):
    QB: Tom Brady, Andy Dalton
    RB: Charles, Lynch, Martin, Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, Rashad jennings, Joe McKnight, Leon Washington
    WR/TE: Antonio Brown, Brandon Lloyd, Randall Cobb, Ted Ginn
    K: Bryant
    DST: Bills

I would strongly consider dropping Henne for Fred Davis. Fred Davis is really looking good and, with Vick and Freeman, I don't think you need Henne all that much.

Would you mind taking a look at my trade? http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=498215

The first question is easy: Should you drop Henne? Yes, like a bad friggin' habit.

The second one is tougher. I'd be happy with Davis or Keller on my team, or even both. Whether you trade them, play them in a flex spot, or just hold onto them and see how they progress, possible top-5 TEs are always worth having on your team, especially this early in the season. If I had to pick one, I'd probably go Davis for the higher upside. We know what Keller has been able to do in that offense the last few years - not a whole lot. He definitely looks good this year, though...

I would drop Henne. Vick and Freeman should do the trick. Fred Davis has been great.
I know he's injured but Brady loves those TEs.

No Question. Drop Henne for Fred Davis.

Once Hernandez comes back, you may want to trade FD at his peak before Cooley gets healthy and starts to cut into his targets.

This. No need for a 3rd QB in a league where you only start one. Don't drop Hernandez, unless we hear much worse news about his injury.

I agree with RedBird in getting Fred Davis for Henne, then trading for someone better. I would try to trade Davis and Best for a top RB and pick up Keller if he's still on the waivers. It's only a matter of time before Cooley reaches full strength, so I'd do all of this within the next couple weeks or so.

Honestly though, I think Keller can be better than Davis even with Cooley all busted up. Keller is Sanchez's safety blanket, who is still trying to gain some consistency in his passing game. If I had to choose between the two, I'd pick Keller.
