He has been frustrating as heck watching his play this year. I know a lot has to do with the QB play but still he hasn't looked great at all. Has anyone traded him yet or even benched him at all?

Better to let players go a year too soon than a year too late. I think this is his year too late.

Julio Jones, Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas. What do they all have in common?

I'm benching him this week for Hogan.  I'm hoping he has a decent game so I can possibly trade him for someone decent.  If not, I'm dropping him. 8 - 10 pts per game (1 in week 4) in PPR just doesn't cut it.

Not sure, Dez has scored multiple tds this season.

Yeah, but that's just because the other options are lacking on that team, and Dak is really good. Look at his receptions and yards. Nothing special for a top paid receiver

Dez was never a super volume wr. He IS slowing down a bit so the deep shots catch + yac plays aren't there as much. Dez was always a risk for 2 for 20 games. Injuries were the excuse provided, but it's the same when he's healthy. He's a td machine jumpball winning receiving option.

DT is going to end up with a decent season somehow. The DT who feasted off of Peyton's last ride as a presnap maestro and occasional deep shot maker is all but gone. So, 90, 1100, and 6 tds is something around what will happen if he plays and is even kinda sorta healthy.

I'd trade him if someone is still thinking they're getting a top 5 fantasy wr in DT. As it stands, stick him in your lineup and roll with it. Don't get cute, bench him, and miss one of his 10 for 140 games.

Sell high after this 10 catch game. He only had it because I was facing him and his owner is one of those Golden boy types who always have their team go for career bests vs me. Sounds silly but its reliable like the tides, every year. No more than 6 a game all year now 10, he will be back to 6 next game.

I would agree.

What a sloppy performance from the Broncos last night.

With Sanders injury, I'm holding.  Maybe if he has another big game with Sanders out I'll look to move him.  But honestly he is who I thought he was, so I can't say I am disappointed with his performance so far other than the lack of td's.

Hey but if someone else's see it the same way, you might be able to upgrade.

Maybe?

True, with Sanders ailing DT is even more attractive. Hes a high floor steady guy at worst, he wont kill you. So many times a game comes down to just needing a solid 7-10 points instead of a 2.

I don't know that he's a guy to give up, he had a big game yesterday

You just have to temper expectations, he's an okay WR2 or flex guy, not a top tier WR1
