Drop Meachem for Jerome Simpson, Kendall Hunter?

Postby FattyMcButterPants » Tue Aug 28, 2012 1:17 pm

I'm pretty stacked at WR, but I don't know if Meachem is going to be that great this year. Should I drop him for Jerome Simpson, or Kendall Hunter?

Or should I just stick with Meachem?

Thanks! WHIR post a link!

I would drop him for Hunter, I don't like Green-ellis as a starter this year

I definitely disagree about Green-Ellis, I think his floor is 1200 yards and 8 TD's.

As far as Meachem, I like him more than Simpson, so I wouldn't do that. Hunter is solid for upside, but you have plenty of that with the RB's on your bench. I would stick with Meachem

help me if you have time:

That's his FLOOR? 8-o I think he has the chance to breakout this year, but Cincinnati's offense is not going to be what it was last year (don't have a lot of confidence in Dalton) and Leonard will steal some touches as a 3DB..

Definitely agree about Meachem over Simpson - Simpson will be gone the first 3 weeks and no one knows where he will be at in his return (could see him screwing up again very easily)

I think your WR corps is much deeper than your RB though, and Meachem hasn't been connecting early on with Rivers as a deep threat..Hunter is basically better than Gore right now IMO, it's only a matter of time...

Should I drop Meachem? or is there another player on my bench that I should drop instead?
