Personally i think Cohen is trending up. Word out of Chicago is they are going to start opening up the offense. This will mean more targets for Cohen. He's so dynamic that they guy seems to find a way to score 10 PPR points a week with as little as 3 touches. If Trubisky starts throwing even modestly like 20 attempts a game that's more than double what he's been doing so i think Cohen should get more targets. We haven't seen how the Bears plan to use Inman yet but should get some idea this week coming out of the bye i would think.
Lastly if Howard were to get hurt he inherits a huge workload so there is that upside as well. Howard's usage has been high and he's had shoulder issues already. Would not be surprising if he were to miss some games.

I agree with a lot of what you're saying on Cohen, however I don't think a Howard injury immediately = a huge workload for Cohen, as he definitely doesn't profile as a feature back (listed at 5' 6", 181). He'd see an uptick in value, sure, but not 20-25 touches again. If you had to pick 2 of my RBs to drop, who would you drop?

@WBFFLchief I prefer Coleman, Burkhead, and Woodhead over Collins and Lewis. (Lewis is really interesting, and while this could certainly change, he's a little too squeezed on both sides for high value touches.) I agree with @Will and would probably go with Doctson, although it's difficult not to want to see what Golladay might be able to do. (In an enthusiastic scenario, he's basically Marvin Jones but with size and athleticism. Probably more of a 2018 play, but sometimes these changes happen fast.)
@kdenigris Good stuff from @jmeek2244. I prefer Cohen to both of the Denver backs.Since Tyrod has such a beautiful finishing schedule, any chance you could trade Mariota (to shore up the roster and/or create a roster spot; maybe send Tyrod/CJA for something)?

@FF_Contrarian how much would you pay for Woodhead? Would you give up something like Aaron Jones (poor playoff schedule) for him in .5 PPR?
#25 By: kdenigris, November 9th, 2017 12:34
Yep, been working on moving Mariota for 2 weeks but no bites as of yet. I sent out a Mariota/CJA for T Coleman out there but not sure he'll take it. Any other recommended targets for a similar combo of something like Mariota+CJA or Mariota+Duke?

@kdenigris Not sure if this helps you, but am hopeful of swapping Abdullah for Tevin Coleman straight up in my PPR league. Hoping Coleman has another quiet week because we've agreed not to trade before we play on Sunday.
I think it depends on your league and how the Coleman owner values him. If he knows about Zero RB, he'd surely be mad to do this (!) but if not then they might be frustrated at the rushing inefficiency/lack of overall ATL opportunity and go for it.

Thanks, @FF_Contrarian. As my only QB is Dalton and may dump Collins anyway, proposed a Collins and ASJ for Cousins and Doctson trade. We'll see what happens.

@FantasyNerd I'm not sure I'd give up Jones in a 0.5. Woodhead has hinted that he might not be full speed, and he just has no value as a runner. More of a Powell level acquisition? (Although Powell has plenty of value this week with Forte out.)
@kdenigris I hope the T. Coleman trade works. That would be perfect. Maybe Mariota/CJA for Ajayi? Maybe Henry? (The hope would be to get someone who hasn't done that much yet but might be in position to really explode in the playoffs.)

Interesting development now that fellow leaguemate dropped Cohen. Now, among Coleman, Burkhead, Cohen, and Woodhead--which is the favorite if I have to drop Collins in 0.5 PPR?

Well boy was i wrong on Cohen. The Bears apparently are determined not to give their best play maker the ball. Cunningham got way more work. I'd say he's droppable, usage is way to unpredictable and he had only 10 targets total in the last 4 games. Time to read the writing on the wall. Sad face emoji!!

Interesting... in one of my leagues, someone just dropped T.Y. Hilton. He seems like an obvious pickup, but I'm actually pretty happy with my current team and am not sure I want to add his volatility to the lineup:
RB: L. Bell
RB: M. Ingram
WR: D. Hopkins
WR: L. Fitzgerald
WR: M. Lee
TE: T. Kroft
Flex: A. Cooper (WR)
BN: ASJ (TE), M. Jones Jr. (WR), D. Funchess (WR), A. Abdullah (RB), S. Watkins (WR), D. Lewis (RB)
Would I drop ASJ? Watkins? Jones? Lee? ASJ is better than Kroft (but I need Kroft for the bye), Lee seems locked in to too big and consistent of a workload, Jones seems to have at least as much upside as Hilton but was racking up huge target loads until this past week, and Watkins is an enigma.
Maybe I drop Watkins? Whom would you drop for Hilton, if anyone?
