There's a bad way and a good way to look at this stragegy:

The good way is that you figure you're locking up most of the touchdowns scored through the air of a certain team. The bad way is that rarely do two receivers on the same team have a great game.

I'm going to attempt to argue the bad way to look at this strategy.

Everyone knows that WRs in fantasy football are the hardest predict. Say you have a number 1 receiver from one team, and a number 2 receiver from another. With this strategy you have a better chance for both receivers to have great games. However, with this strategy, you have a better chance for both receivers to have poor games. So this strategy could be viewed as a more high risk/reward than using two receivers on the same team.

In the end I don't really think it makes a difference in what you choose to do. If I already had a number one receiver on a team, and then later in the draft the number two receiver on the same team was the best player available for me, I would draft him no question.

Rarely if ever do they both score TDs in the same game or even blow up together which is what you're looking for in the dynamic. You're basically giving yourself an average team on a week to week basis. I would say the same about WRs and TEs on the same team.

I am gonna have to go with Wicked on this one. Here, and on his next post he makes very good points.

I think having Wayne and Harrison on your team is the only combo I would like. They are on a powerhouse offense, with one of the most prolific and consistent QBs to ever play the game. Plus, they both finished in the top 5, maybe top 4 in yards last season, I can't remember, and combined for 21 TDs. 2600/21 for a starting WR combo is very nice. It's not like you're starting Bush/Deuce at RB, it only takes a dozen catches between these two to both have very nice games. Wayne and Harrison scored 37 points for owners last night.

Edit: sorry, 35 points because of the fumble.

I agree with this. The only combo I would go with would be those two that I can think of.

Well, I would have gone with TO and Terry Glenn, but just because you could get Terry Glenn pretty late in drafts and he would act as a bye week filler as well as a type of insurance for TO.
