    Assuming Theilen and Adams play, I would have to bench Mike Williams to play one and either Andrews or H Henry to play the other.  What do you recommend?

    I don’t like Williams this week and I like Henry.

    I can tell you this about Williams going forward in the season-long games. I have him in the avoid column due to too many of his passing attempts ending with apparent injuries. After seven games, he’s the 57th ranked WR in PPR leagues (8.40 FPPG) with no impact games or TDs. Last year he scored ten TDs with strength in his catch rate (65.2). Williams should see a lot of CB Jaire Alexander, which points to another boring game.

    With two excellent games (8/100/2 and 6/97) after missing four games with a knee injury, Henry had a step back in value in Week 8 (4/47 on six targets). Over four games, he has 22 catches for 304 yards and two TDs on 112 targets, which is on pace (88/1216/8) for a Travis Kelce type season. His catch rate (78.6) commands more looks. The Packers fell to 26th in TE defense (14.45 FPPG – 42/445/4 on 60 targets) after the Raiders dusted them at TE in Week 7 (11/172/2). In their other two games vs. top TEs, Green Bay also showed risk (PHI – 9/81/1 and KC 4/63/1). Henry comes into this week with a high salary, which will make him tougher to squeeze in, especially for Fantasy owners looking to roster an elite RB. I’m going to give him the green tag with this game expected to have a battle on the scoreboard.
