Matt Stafford, Andre Johnson vs Drew Brees, Mike Thomas

Which would be the better of the two pairings? I got Stafford and Johnson and I'm being offered a trade of the two for Brees and Thomas. I'm afraid of hurting my WR support with the trade. Anyone have thoughts?

Depends on what the rest of your team looks like and your lineup rules.

Just on it's own, I would stick with Stafford/Johnson. I'm pretty high on Stafford this year, but there is the injury risk with him. No, I don't expect him to do as well as Brees. But, I expect the difference between Stafford and Brees to be less than the different between Johnson and Thomas. So you are giving up more in WR points than what your are gaining in QB points.

Counter with Brees and a better WR if he has one that you like. Otherwise, stand pat. Stafford looks primed to have a huge year, and Andre Johnson is.... I can't even describe how awesome he is. He's the Adrian Peterson of wide receivers. All Day. No matter what. Hurt? Bad team (in the past)? Going against a tough D? Doesn't matter!
