Assuming (I stress this) that Rogers is out for the season, or at least a long time, how much does Roy Williams' value rise?

Assuming that it's another collarbone break, as has been reported, I'd raise Williams's value significantly. He was already a potential starter, depending on how deep your league is, but he now appears to be the #1 threat. I'd also say that Hakim's value and Tai Streets's values have both gone up, making them worthy of a snatch off the ww, for those in need of a #3 or #4 WR.

Maybe it's only me, but simply moving up to the #1 wideout doesn't up his value. Sure, he's going to get the first look when the QB does his checkdowns but if he's the only decent threat out in the backfield the secondary is going to key on him. That means he's not going to be as open as he might be with a real threat on the opposite side of the field.

I don't have high confidence in Streets or Hakim, so I would say while their values increase (due to the increased playing time) I would either keep Roy the same or even decrease it slightly.

This is also going to adversely affect Kevin Jones' value if the passing game stalls, which doesn't help because he didn't exactly look good today.
