  1. Corey Coleman is on IR until week 10... if I were to think about adding him and reports are good that he's on schedule to return on time when would you consider picking him up?

    are there any more obvious guys u have in mind...would u prefer say julio> Evans > Mike Thomas >Hopkins > to take down a league in about that order?
    does jameis' shoulder make u pause? OJ howard emergence? hopkins' tough matchups?
    I was wondering what some of your favorite teams are looking like or your ideal team maybe something like:
    Hunter Henry
    (with some e. sanders stashed or Corey's on the bench+ Foreman, D. Henry, Tevin, mack...) on ur bench
    ive gotten some offers for Hopkins recently wondering what i might want back
    any names u love for 14-16 not named

  4. I guess I'm not as excited about Julio. At this point, a lot of negative trends are coming together.

    His targets, expected points, and points over expectation are all down, but the volume is a mult-year decline. Last year's extreme yardage efficiency (he was again not a big TD factor) covered up some of this decline, but without that extreme efficiency this year, it's much more obvious.

    Some of the discussions about buying low seem to assume he's going go back to his 2015 opportunity level, which is a more difficult argument to make.

    Also, the schedule-based argument is getting weaker.

    Atlanta has already had their bye - which is huge right now - but their schedule is below average prior to the playoffs. And suddenly the New Orleans matchups are starting to look more neutral, with the Saints playing strong pass defense on a per play basis and their offense skewing more to the run than in years past.

    It's not that I wouldn't take Jones - he's still a clear WR1 - but I wouldn't pay top 2 prices. I really like the other guys you've mentioned.

    I currently have Julio in 2nd place. Would you trade him for Keenan and CJA? Or just stand pat with Julio and hope he has a dominating performance in week 15 or 16?

    A preferably route may be to try to trade for something like Julio + Aaron Jones for Mike Evans and Brees after this week if Julio has another big game to a team in pretty dire RB need.
