    I think I’d cut Shepard for him

  2. I would like your input on my WR issues. 10 team standard; 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR,/TE). I’ve got Julio & Cooks, but after that it is DeSean Jackson, Travis Benjamin & Sterling Shepard. Jackson has been a train wreck. He hasn’t topped 55 yds in the last 4 weeks. Benjamin is the guy, but the ball gets spread around a lot & keeps him with a WR2 ceiling. Shepard looked like a steal in the first 3 weeks but his production has come back down and no big plays. Are any of those droppable to take a flyer on Corey Coleman? He could still be a legit third option for me in the coming weeks. I was leaning toward dropping DJax. Thanks!
