Man that tough.
I'm not entirely loving Landry or thielen in standard. Landry's value is eight receptions game with like 40 yards.
Watson could totally come down to earth but his legs give him a safe floor each week. Allen gets looks in the Red Zone. I want to lean that way but obviously Antonio is Antonio.

It's fair if you're asking. As far as who gets the best of it? It's hard to tell unless we knew the team getting Antonio needs a receiver for the team getting Watson need to quarterback.

I would make the trade for Antonio, dependent on depth

so, the only other context missing here is i'm Watson side AND i'm holding two other QBs that i believe to be pretty stable in Rivers and Mariota

i felt real dumb for claiming Watson without dumping one of those two but i see this trade as my ship sailing in

does holding those two qbs make it more palatable?

I would be happy to switch between rivers/mariota instead of watson to pick up antonio

i kinda want to go with Thielen over Landry but Landry is already past his bye

they're both getting big target numbers.

10, 6, 8, 8, 8 (0-3 red zone targets) no TDs for Thielen
15, 11, 7, 10 (3-4 red zone) 1 TD for Landry

obviously Thielen ypc > Landry ypc

Look at it this way, the point difference from Allen to Brown should make up for any point difference you lose from Watson to Mariota. Watson will not be putting up for to five touchdowns a week. That's like MVP Brady pace.
This is the classic point in every fantasy season that a player like Watson emerges and owners have to decide what they're seeing is real and ride the wave or cash in the chips for a proven stud like Antonio. If you have quarterbacks I would lean on taking the proven stud.

Yes and that's the thing. In standard you need to be conscious of yards per catch. Targets and receptions are nice and all but they need to lead to touchdowns or significant yardage. The one thing I can say is Diggs gas some groin thing so if he misses time thielen gets a big big boost.

Yeah I snagged him in my main league to just put in my one bench spot I save for dudes who may have one blowup game and then try to trade them immediately

Anyone in Globey looking to offload a tight end? I’ve got a concussed Kelce and Witten with a bye. Waiver wire is looking bleak currently

Yeah I dont think I can give up either of my starters and my bench RBs are unlikely to interest you

I'm on the fence with your offer atm. Not looking for anything in particular but no one else on your team really interests me.

5th Circuit rules for NFL paving way for 6-game ban for Zeke Elliott. NFLPA will likely appeal, but it's unclear what is going to happen.

Pick up McFadden and Morris as lottery tickets

how many of you folks carry two quarterbacks? i snagged cam from waivers before the pats game in anticipation of russell wilson's bye week. am weighing value of injury insurance (wilson hasn't missed a game) versus trading for WR help.

also, duke or jerick this week for PPR?

in a 1 qb league theres basically no reason to roster 2 qbs if you can get a good trade out of moving one.

i'm in a 2 qb league and starting case keenum this week.

at this point, i'm just glad this zeke shit is finally over and i don't have to follow @WALLACHLEGAL sports law twitter anymore. i'm 4-1, have both alf and dmc, they should be at least RB2-level productive behind that line and an easy run-D 6 game schedule, and zeke will come back fresh right as fantasy playoffs begin

I guess there is a slight chance the NY court rules on the injunction, but for my own sake i'm just gonna pretend like that scenario is out
