I was loving Titus Young until week 1. Didnt see the game but it looks like he was an afterthought. i'm keeping him for 1 more week before dropping him. I'd pick up McCluster and Young if i were you. If young doesnt do anything for the next couple of weeks i'd dump him again.



Aside from the extra TE, who else would you drop for these 2 receivers?

Offer both Fleener and LaFell in a trade for an upgrade at WR. Don't drop Fleener outright. Seek out a team in your league that needs help at WR and/or TE and see if they bite. Then grab McCluster out of free agency.

And would it be better for this trade to happen before or after this weekend? I guess im wondering if im just grabbing them and selling high or if they actually have potential. It will be tough to get a solid 1 wr because everyone has good TE's and as im sure you guys noticed...the Offenses kind of blew up this past weekend...everyone was TE happy.

I'd offer the trade now. Don't wait. You want to upgrade your roster now and take advantage of one-week performers with no past preferences to gauge by.

Yea, that will be difficult. Most if not all TEs did well...as a matter of fact, Gates (which is mine) was one of the TEs that had least production so Lafell and Fleener for a top WR will be tough unless they prove themselves again.

I would grab the other WR on the wire that's playing tomorrow night...Alshon Jeffery. Lifelong Ill. resident and Bears fan and can say I feel VERY confident in him this year. As much attention as Marshall is garnering, you have full time single coverage on the other WR and that will soon be Jeffery. Sharing time now with Hester and Bennett but that wont last but a couple more weeks if you can wait that long. Was 1st round talent before character issues came up....supposedly has all that in the past and have not heard anything to the contrary. I think if I were going to grab a Packer, it would be Cobb. Thanks for the help with mine! :)
