In a .5 PPR league, who would you rather have? A couple of weeks ago, I would say Knox. However, Knox is a deep threat guy. If Cutler can't get more than a second to deliver the ball, Knox's value takes a hit. Williams is a great talent. Run-oriented team, but He's the number 1 guy.
I'm asking because I might have to give one of these up in a trade. Who would you rather have?

12 Team League. We start 2 QBs and get .5 PPR, otherwise standard scoring QBs: Stafford, Fitzpatrick, Collins RBs: Charles, Mendenhall, Best, Starks, Carter, Karim WRs: D. Jackson, Marshall, S. Smith, Green, TE: Hernandez, Cook
That's a really tough call. As a Knox owner, I tend to favor him. If I'm thinking about it objectively with what we've seen thus far in the season, I'm not sure if Williams has more upside.
I do, however, think Chicago will straighten things out along the O-Line. Martz runs a complex offense as we all know, and it's going to take some time for it all to gel. If they do, Knox will benefit, as will his fantasy owners.
I know I'm not offering much help, but it's a really tough decision. If you have any faith in Martz or Cutler, I think you have to go with Knox though. If not, go with the rookie. He'll be inconsistent like Knox, but I suspect he's going to have a good season.
QB: Eli Manning, Favre & Kitna RB: Charles, Tomlinson, Forte & Greene WR: Andre Johnson, Randy Moss, Floyd & Knox TE: Daniels K: Longwell D/ST: Seattle & Chicago 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 D/ST (Non-PPR 12 Team)
I much rather Williams. Coming into this year there was a lot of hype and I haven't seen anything from him to think he doesn't deserve it. Knox is a good player but the Bears offense isn't really that stable.
