    Drop B. Lloyd?

    Brandon Lloyd has been disappointing this season, but I'm thinking that his targets could go up now that Gronkowski is injured?

    I'm considering dropping either him or TAM's Mike Williams for T.Y. Hilton (whose combined receiving/return yards could give me a boost) or Justin Blackmon. Thoughts?

    • If you do go for Hilton and keep an eye on Blackmon. He needs to prove it wasn't a fluke. As for Lloyd I am in the same boat as you. Apparently vs the Colts he got dropped to the 3rd receiver in favor of Edelman and Welker. I am giving him 1 more week to see if things improve or I am dumping him.

      This is the latest update from rotoworld -

      "Lloyd did not play in the majority of two-wide sets, leading to the first time this season that he has been third among wideouts in snaps. Wes Welker led the way with 57 snaps and Julian Edelman recorded 52. Lloyd ended up with just four catches for 45 yards, a familiar line for a guy averaging just 52.5 yards per game on the season. The only glimmer of hope here is that the Patriots figure to use three-wide formations more often now thanks to Rob Gronkowski's forearm injury. Still, we can't trust Lloyd as anything more than a WR3 against the Jets on Thanksgiving."
