fantasy football thursday?

The guy who had held onto AJ Green since day one finally decided to drop him today. I've been holding onto DeSean Jackson. Would you drop Jackson for Green? Neither is playing this week.

At RB I had D. Freeman, K. Johnson, D. Singletary, Ekeler, Jamal Williams, and James White, but I dropped White for Darrell Henderson because of future upside. Was that a mistake (it's PPR)? I'm 5-1 in a 12-team league and thinking ahead. White has a high floor and low ceiling. Henderson is just the opposite and given the rest of my RB group, I thought it made sense.
Not likely, but DJax MIGHT suit up.

He didnít practice today, but if he does tomorrow in some capacity, he may give it a go Sunday.

You donít have anyone else to drop? I like both guys when theyíre active, but Iíd rather have AJ Green if you think heís coming back soon.

If I had someone else to drop, I wouldn't've dropped James White for Darrell Henderson. My other WRs are Tyreek Hill, Davante Adams, and Robbie Anderson. I'm confident I can be one of the four teams to make the playoffs with my current starters, so I'm looking to improve the upside of my bench.

That's why I preferred Henderson to White. There's a chance that come weeks 15 and 16 Henderson could be the Rams starter, but White will always be part of a committee. Same with why I picked up Jamal Williams. I won't be starting Williams, but if Aaron Jones gets hurt, Williams becomes an RB1.

I drafted Henderson Jr., had to drop to fill a spot in a given week, and recently picked him up again because I see the upside. So, don't know if I'm a fool or not but to me he is trending up again. He looked pretty good with Gurley out and if that were to remain the case he's like having a change of pace or third down back.

He was an early 3rd round pick (70th overall), so you know the Rams believe in him and he outperformed Malcolm Brown (who missed practice yesterday) on Sunday, so he could be a top 10 RB by season's end if the right dominoes fall into place.
AJ Green almost back

but looks like their going to hold him out another week. Since this is week 7 and Bungles have a bye in week 9, am starting to think we're not going to see him until week 8. Very frustrating as I've been holding onto him too.

What's up with Jackson?
week 10, not 8

Some kind of abdomen injury. I decided to put in a waiver request with Jamaal Williams as the drop instead of DeSean Jackson. I'm last on the waiver wire right now, so chances are I won't get him, but people can be asleep at the wheel when it comes to mid-week drops, especially when it's a player who won't be playing that week.
