I hate to lose Welker's upside, but I can match his point totals from one of the back ups. McCoy would start at Flex, pushing Bowe to the bench. Not a bad back up.
The other guy has P. Manning, which is why the trade is being discussed.
Tough one. However, McCoy will get a tad more touches and the way Kelly runs this O it is hard to just focus on McCoy and neutralize him so I see him continuing to have big games. Manning's boy is Welker and he will run that well dry and I trust Manning's targeting him.
Stay with Welker I say until you see Shady continue his success then do the deal. Also see if you can pick up J Bell the handcuff RB to Bush. Bush is already hurting even after a good game and it's just a matter of time IMO until Bush pusses out with injuries.
