Drop Rob Kelley for Gio Bernard? PPR

Recommended Posts

This team I would be making the move has Melvin Gordon, Carlos Hyde, Blount, Rob Kelley, Jamaal Charles

 

I consider Charles and Kelley about the same value. I also will be starting Blount over Kelley in most situations, unless the matchup is too lopsided. I just hate to let go of a starter when healthy for a purely receiving RB in Bernard. It seems like they are behind and playing catch up a lot though.

I’ve dumped Charles even though he’s looked pretty good he’s barely even a flex I just went after Gallman and Kamara, I like Charles but in 4 weeks never once felt compelled to start him maybe a bad move but what do you do with a RB4ish guy.  I think GIO as well holds more value PPR.

I own Kelley in a standard league, and am not high on his prospects.  Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson steal carries, he's not out there on 3rd down.  There's even another RB I think who gets carries, I don't even know his name.  If Perine or Thompson got injured, he'd probably have value, but not startable essentially now.  I don't know much about Gio, but I am pessimistic about Kelley

Gio has 5 catches combined the last 2 weeks and 24 touches in 4 games.  That's a whopping 6 touches a game. Sure he took a big one to the house against Cleveland, but since Lazor took over that is Mixon's backfield.  Fat Rob is at least still the starter and Perine hasn't shown anything to take the early down work away from him when healthy.  The reason he lost so many carries last week is because he got dinged up. He's not going to be flashy and probably won't have a lot of huge week, but I'll still take the starter with more volume in that situation.

Yeah I absolutely would not drop Kelley.  You're looking for guys with volume and when he's healthy he will get it.  Between cuffing CJ with Charles or Bernard, I'll take Charles.  Gio's big game this week was mainly off of one play.  Neither are particularly attractive or startable in 12-teams or less as long as CJ is healthy.
