Every week we will come up with our add/drop list where we’ll try and find players less than 50% owned that are worth a spot on most teams. Here’s this week’s list of top add/drop candidates.
Julian Edelman – if you need a receiver for the next couple weeks, Edelman has a chance to be a huge add. With Amendola and Gronkowski almost certainly out for week 2, Vereen already ruled out, Dobson still questionable, and Thompkins struggling mightily in his first game, Edelman is the obvious choice for double digit targets in week 2. His value will decrease over time as Amendola gets healthy and Gronkowski returns, but if you’re in need of some wide receiver points now then look no further.
Terrelle Pryor – if you’re not in a deep league or 2 QB league where Pryor is already owned, I would definitely add him. Indy’s defense is pretty bad so he probably won’t be as good as he was in week 1. He also seemed to lean more towards a run-first mentality vs using his arm to make plays so I think his ceiling is pretty much what you saw in week 1, but I think he’s a strong QB2 option and possible matchup play if your top QB isn’t elite.
Leonard Hankerson – a few things make Hankerson an intriguing pickup this week. First, he had a pair of TDs thrown his way last week. Second, RG3 looked far more hesitant to leave the pocket due to his injury which could mean more pass attempts aimed the way of the receivers. Lastly, Pierre Garcon’s injury history means that at any moment Hankerson could be thrust into the #1 role.
Kellen Winslow – Winslow set a goal to catch 100 receptions this year and he started the season off in good fashion going 7 for 79 with a score. I don’t see him catching 100 balls but he did appear to be Geno Smith’s favorite target and with Jeremy Kerley out with a concussion, Winslow should continue to be in line for double digit targets.
Dallas Clark – Clark was very inconsistent last year, but had some solid games down the stretch in Tampa last year. Part of his inconsistency could’ve been due to the ineptitude of Josh Freeman. Ed Dickson dropped a few balls and didn’t look very good last week either, so Clark could continue to partially fill the Dennis Pitta role. I wouldn’t start Clark just yet but he might be worth a bench stash.
