Bowe vs. Vincent Jackson

Can keep either Bowe or Vincent Jackson; non-PPR, 10 yds = 1 pt; TD = 6 pts. Who do you like?

Depends on how Jackson acts now that he's going to be stuck with the Franchise tag. If he doesn't act like last year and sucks it up I think he's in for a big year. I had Bowe last year and his numbers were sick....but KC has a very tough schedule and I still don't trust Cassel.

VJax over Bowe. Better offense, much easier schedule.

I would take Jackson. Him and Rivers have a great report with each other and plus Rivers is a throwing machine.

I'd go Jackson as well. Bowe had a beast season but I just don't see it happening again with Cassel. Much tougher schedule this year.

I personally throw the schedule angle out the window. It is just to difficult to predict defenses year to year, especially with the 2 million free agents changing teams we will have this year.

For me it comes down to Bowe was incredible for 6-7 games, than averish the rest of the year. Plus he lost his O-coordinator who made Cassel look better than he was and Charles is set for more of a role this year. If Jackson is in SD he has more upside and more consistency. If he isn't in SD, than keep Bowe.

It seems Jackson is the consesus pick here so let me add something to the question: Would you be happy with either guy as your WR1?
QB: BREES, Cutler
RB: TURNER, MCGAHEE, R. JENNINGS, Leshoure, D. Williams, Hillman, Hunter, Dwyer
WR: CRUZ, GARCON, Amendola, Edwards, D. Baldwin
TE: GRAHAM

At first I thought no, but upon review I'd say in a lot of situations, yes. To me, the top WRs are split into the first tier:

Andre Johnson
Calvin Johnson
Roddy White

And Second Tier:
Nicks
Bowe
V. Jax
Fitgerald
Jennings
Austin
Mike Wallace
Reggie Wayne, etc.

Maybe be some people I'm missing, but in a 12 team league Bowe/VJax have to be someones WR1. So I'd say yes.
