Who to cut? Louis Murphy or Jacoby Ford?

Postby onnestabe » Mon Jul 18, 2011 5:58 pm

Dynasty league, Standard scoring, non-PPR, 6 points for RETURN Touchdowns, Start 2 or 3 WRs

I also have Roddy White, Percy Harvin, and Vincent Jackson, so just looking for a depth and future upside.

I think Louis Murphy is the best pure WR in Oakland, which isn't saying much, I know. I like Jacoby Ford because of his big play ability. His return ability insulates him from the concerns about the so-so QB talent and inconsistency on offense in this league.

So which Oakland WR do you cut?

IF it is our Flex league drop Ford, if it is any other league drop Murphy. I love Ford, picked him up in every league I could last year and got him most. Will either ever be a WR1 for you, probably not, but I can actually see Ford putting up top 20 numbers if things fall in the right place for him.

Thanks for the quick response, guys. I was leaning that way, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't being silly (it's still hard to believe the third WR of the Raiders is rosterable).

And bungle, it's not Flex, but I'll trade my rights for Ford to you :-D

Not sure how long he will be considered the WR3... I think he is the leading WR for the Raiders this year.

I'd be cutting Murphy, and I don't think it's really that close ...
