Thinking of going Ridley (Tamp Bay this week, then Giants then Washington - 3 good defences) > Kupp (just looked excellent/ good chemistry with Stafford & suits my bye structure perfectly) & Jarwin > Hockenson who I was keen on most of preseason till the final week.... regret that change. Leaves me looking looking this :-

Ridley and Pitts will probably smash it against all odds :p

Why the rush to get rid of Ridley? Or Adams?
Every WR has a down game now and then.
Adams had scores of 18 and 15 last year. Ridley scores of 13 and an uninjured 0. Plus there is no Julio
It's Week 1. Only one game,

26 trades sounds a lot but it might take up to 4 (or more) trades to upgrade a player.
And I think you'll probably need 4 for wks.17 and 18. Last year I scored 606 and ranked #7 in wk.17 because I had trades when many didn't.

This. I don't recommend trading based on one round unless there's a clear reason for it, such as injury - been burned by players turning things around after one bad game way too often.

That said, I am considering getting rid of McLaurin this round, mainly due to the injury to Fitzpatrick, however normally I would give him at least a second match to show something.

I’m gonna trade McLaurin to Waddle and Jarwin to Hockenson (leaves 3mil in the bank) and putting Pitts on the bench. I have the non playing RB Sermon to potentially trade in week 3.

I was going to do Sermon to Swift and play him on field over Harris but on second thought that’s not very worthwhile

Think there's a legitimate worry about Matt Ryan this year and Ridley was overpriced by 750K after not having a playing donut added to his average last year.

If you include Ridley's zero he averaged 31.2 last year. Good enough for his rank to remain at #4 WR on the year.

I think the Falcons' new head coach, Arthur Smith, should be considered.
He was offensive co-ordinator for the Titans the last two years.
In that time the Titans were #5 in points per game, #5 in yds per game and #1 in red-zone TD percentage,
Admittedly Smith had Derrick Henry but he also did pretty well with Tannehill and his WRs.
In 26 games under Smith, Tannehill completed 67.3% of his passes for 6,561 yds, 55 TDs to 13 Ints and a passer rating of 110.6.
Last year, the Titans' #1 WR A J Brown, in his 2nd season, averaged 29.1 in RDT.

Admittedly Ryan may be on the down slope. And the Falcons' OL may have issues.
But I still think the first game of a season - particularly one under a new coach - is insufficient to draw any conclusions.

Good counterpoints but I think there's enough concern with the Falcons to make that trade if you want to move some pieces around. They're my team and the players on offense look like they could be a huge problem, even with a good coach. I still think Ridley would be top 8-10 but at his price could be traded.
