The only reason DHop didn’t go in the first round was bc people were concerned about his usage in Arizona. He was the clear #1 target, meaning that he will be a top 5 WR again for the nth time. the WR’s in this trade aren’t even close – you clearly win.
As for the Henry/Taylor debate, here’s the scoop: Yes, Henry will get touches. Guaranteed usage. You know who will also get guaranteed usage? Jonathan Taylor. Remember, Taylor was supposed to ride the bench in week 1, with maybe some usage later in the game is the Colts were winning. When Mack went down, he became the unquestioned starter, behind one of the best O-Lines in football. Also, he got 6 targets in the 2nd half alone. I did some quick research on this:
In the second half (the game was close at this point, 17-14 colts), Hines had 6 touches: 2 rush, 4 rec (on 4 tgts) while Taylor had 14 touches: 9 rush, 5 rec (6 tgts). While the colts were down (last 12 mins of the game), Hines had 4 touches (3 rec, 1 rush) while taylor had 3 (3 rec). For reference, the colts rushed 10 times and passed 25 times in the second half total. While the colts were up, Taylor was the bell-cow. When they are down, he still gets his in the passing game. And remember, Taylor was not part of the game plan. So to see so much usage so soon, especially in the pass, is extremely encouraging.
Taylor is gonna be a monster this season. Even if you come to the conclusion that this part of the trade is ~fair, the WRs should be easily push you over the edge. I hate the thought of giving someone the CMC/Henry stack, but i fear the CMC/Taylor stack even more. But, it’s your team and your decision after all, so do what you feel is the right call.
