Kittle is listed as doubtful for MNF against Seattle. I'm planning to drop Ty Johnson to find someone to replace Kittle in case he doesn't play. Below are what I see as my three options, any advice appreciated. I need to win this week to stay in the playoff hunt.

1) Pick up Ross Dwelley, Kittle's backup, and start him if Kittle doesn't play. Dwelley hasn't done much so far, but with luck might take on some of Kittle's role if the latter is out.

2) Pick up Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister, who scored twice last week. Problem there is that this was likely a fluke and this week Seattle will have Luke Wilson and possibly Ed Dickson also back at TE.

3) Assume Kittle is not going to play and pick up someone else and play them Sunday. I'm in a super competitive league so the only candidate is probably O.J. Howard, who I drafted and dropped weeks ago because he did zilch. Worst scenario here is that I play Howard, he does nothing, and then Kittle ends up actually playing.

I’m in the same boat. My only option is gelsecki. I’m leaning hollister.
