I'm cruising at 6-1 and have scored the most points by far. However, it looks like my win streak will probably end this week due to week 8 byes (Bradshaw, Hillis, Boldin, White). I knew this week would hurt me, but it's compounded by the injuries to Floyd and McCluster. I've hung on to McCluster for his dual WR/RB eligibility in yahoo leagues and was planning to use him at my RB2 spot this week, but he is likely out this week with a high ankle sprain. I'm starting both Foster and Ward at running back but I have nobody else to start at my third receiver spot alongside Harvin and Evans.
Jacoby Jones is available on the waiver wire, has recovered from his calf injury, and is going to return kicks. Should I drop McCluster for JJ to improve my chances this week, or should I just ride out Dexter's injury and hold on to his upside and dual yahoo eligibility?
Realistically I won't be counting on either one of them as a starter once the byes are finished, but wide receiver depth is critical in this league. Who is the better guy to stash?
Damn this is actually the first I'm hearing about Dexter's injury. I've had him stashed on my money league (ppr, point for every 20 return yards) bench all season and he was just starting to come around.
This could very well be the time to cut him loose especially in your situation. Does your league give a point per 20 return yards? Is Jacoby returning punts and kicks?
