Drop someone for Branch? WHIR

Postby eric281 » Sat Sep 24, 2011 1:19 am

Branch just came off waivers in my league, and I feel like I should be grabbing him, but having trouble pulling the trigger on dropping anyone. I guess at this point it's Julio Jones I'm leaning towards, but am I giving up too much potential?

You can probably drop Devery Henderson now for Branch if you want. Lance Moore is back and Colston will in a couple of weeks which will further bump Devery back on the depth chart.

i don't think you need to make a change, but agree that if you do, dropping henderson is the call ... he will never dominate receptions or stats in that offense ... too many mouths to feed - but henderson's speed in that offense means you'll see alot of 3-70-TD lines. branch is brady's safety blanket ... but lacks explosiveness and not a primary red zone option .... More likely to see 8-70 line.

In a PPR I like Branch over Devery also.
