Romo/Welker or Freeman/Holmes?

Postby RAMFantasyFootball » Sun Sep 11, 2011 1:22 am

Current starting lineup:
QB: Sam Bradford
WR: Vincent Jackson
WR: Anquan Boldin
WR: Nate Burleson
RB: Ray Rice
RB: Mike Tolbert
TE: Lance Kendricks

What is the better trade for me:
- Bradford and Jackson for Josh Freeman and Santonio Holmes
- Bradford and Jackson for Tony Romo and Wes Welker

neither, i don't think the downgrade from V.Jax to Holmes or Welker can be justified by upgrade to Romo or Freeman

but if you must pick one, i'll take Romo/Welker
Romo should have decent year, as Freeman is still unknown even everyone is expecting Freeman to become stud QB, but it's not proved yet.

Welker is WR1 in NE, and despite how talented Holmes is, i trust Brady more than Sanchez.

Santonio Holmes averaged 62 and .5 TDs a game last year. (12 Games)
Vincent Jackson averaged 50 yards a game and .6 TDs. (5 Games)

77 YPG .55 TDs for Vincent Jackson in 2010
79 YPG .31 TDs for Holmes in 2010.

They look even to me. Santonio looks like a big red zone option for a good team(much like VJax), with a better YPG average. Freeman should have a better year than Sam Bradford. Holmes was the go-to in the red zone this pre season. I think You can expect about 8 TDs from both Holmes and Jackson.

I'm high on Holmes and Freeman, and would seriously consider making this trade. It gives you a more serious starting QB situation while giving no signs of a significant drop-off from a WR standpoint.

I wouldn't hate standing still, either. None of these options are terrible; but this Holmes/Freeman move could have some serious upside.
