This move is basically for bench strength. Kerley has the Pats again on Thursday, who he torched earlier this season. However, Hilton has looked pretty good and if Avery's out with a concussion, he stands to benefit big. Plus, Blackmon finally showed he can perform. If Henne remains at QB, he could be decent the remainder of the season.
Should I do it, and if so, what should the priority be for Hilton and Blackmon?
Tough call, both of them are really good adds right now. I might even try to add both if possible, but if I had to pick one, I'd go T.Y. Hilton. He's more likely to get work with Avery out and the Buffalo D is very friendly overall. Blackmon is a good add in the short term.
On a question related to this, would you drop Maclin for Hilton or Blackmon? Would you even consider picking up both and dropping Maclin and Ryan Fitzpatrick? I'm in a 2 QB league and my primary QBs are Brady and Matt Ryan, so Fitzpatrick isn't particularly useful to me with bye weeks done.

Thanks. I really only have one spot available for a receiver, but I think I'll put Hilton on top priority, followed by Blackmon and hope I get one or the other.
As for your questions, I'd let Fitzpatrick go if you don't need him. You're pretty set with Brady and Ryan in a 2QB league, so open that roster spot up for someone - perhaps Hilton or Blackmon.
As for Maclin, I'd say hold out for one more week. If you have a better option (or if you drop Fitz and can pick up Hilton or Blackmon), I'd bench Maclin until you know if Vick is coming back or not.
