Anyone that has Henry put the C on him this week. Dont know that stats but can tell you he absolutely slaughters the Jags.
Good call! Currently sitting as the 3rd RB in this week's consensus rankings behind CMC and Zeke in half PPR. Banged out 55pts in his last outing against them so seems a fairly safe captaincy selection.

I'm also not sure how I feel captaining CMC this weekend so surprised he's still listed No.1. The Buccs are brutal against the run and were the only team to stop him last year with just 12 RDT pts. Yes Kamara scored well on the weekend against them but that was only because he managed to get in the end zone twice. Only registered 16yds from his 12 carries.

Michael Thomas: Diagnosed with high-ankle injury
Thomas suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's 34-23 win over the Buccaneers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Thomas reportedly believes the injury is something he can play through, so he can't yet be ruled out for next Monday's upcoming tilt in Las Vegas, but high-ankle issues have a notorious tendency to linger and curtail fantasy production. The superstar wideout was held to just three catches for 17 yards Week 1. If Thomas is indeed hampered for the near future, or even forced to miss time, the Saints will count on Emmanuel Sanders and Tre'Quan Smith to pick up the slack at wide receiver.

If you haven't got Jonathan Taylor he is probably a must-have rookie now that Mack is out for season, so that's an easy trade. Other than that, not sure if it's worth it.
Yeah I’ve got him already, all the other RB rookies all seem to have unpredictable usage amounts heading forward. JK Dobbins, Malcolm Brown and Hines might all be better but it’s hard to know.

Yes as I said yesterday I expected he would need to be traded with that high ankle sprain and Hopkins seems a likely replacement, especially if you already have Davante and Julio. Could miss several weeks according to Michael "Fabs" Fabiano.

Michael Thomas to Hopkins looks alright to me.
My Hopkins POD not looking as unique now.
Think I'll bring in Adams for Thomas. He still looks like getting a lot of targets.
Hopefully Golladay is in this week too, his DNP was not ideal in week 1.
Hopkins vs Adams, hmmm, both look good trade ins. Not sure which to trade in yet.

Very tough decision and ideally you would want both eventually and very quickly.

As others have alluded to Hopkins has a good draw but Kirk, Fitzgerald, etc were rarely featured in the opening game and I'd expect them to receive more targets. Adams missed several games through injury last season and the form of A Rodgers was slightly down from his lofty standards last season.

Depends on your preference as it is extremely hard to separate both and bar injury it is very unlikely that either will greatly disappoint or a large difference between both.
