PPR League... I get Bowe, I give Wayne/Burleson WHIR

Postby JohnnyBighead » Thu Sep 29, 2011 11:43 am

Yahoo League with 1 Point PPR Scoring....
1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex RB/WR/TE, 1 K, 1 Def

QBs- Cam Newton, Josh Freeman, Matt Hasselback
RBs- LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, Ryan Mathews, Joseph Addai
WRs- Roddy White, Reggie Wayne, Steve Johnson, Nate Burleson, Devery Henderson, Danny Amendola
TEs- Jimmy Graham, Fred Davis

I was offered Dwayne Bowe for Reggie Wayne and Nate Bureleson. I like this because the Colts look unbearable, especially if Painter is throwing the ball... Also, Burleson is getting his looks eaten up by all the up and comers in Detroit. The Chiefs really look bad, but Bowe is getting his looks and really is the only thing in town now....

What do you guys think?

your pretty deep at WR, so you can afford to make the move...but its a little steep.

Wayne and Bowe are both in hit or miss offenses this year...and Wayne has slighty more fantasy pts this year than Bowe.

You should be able to get Bowe for Wayne alone.

Agreed, but it seems like Titus is taking most of Burleson's targets anyways. I honestly don't see this trade as a huge improvement, but its not a terrible one to take if you like Bowe's upside.

the chiefs offense has me really worried right now.
granted bowe went insane in the 2nd half last season.
with your depth, you can easily afford to do this.
but i would kind of hope you could get a better wide for wayne and burleson.


thanks for the advice on mine.

This is a tough one. I think I like the Bowe side. You can grab someone off waivers to replace Burleson for depth. But it's really just flipping a coin.

its a tough one for sure.... i like having Burleson, but i dont see him playing unless somebody gets hurt.... my 3 WR spots are filled with guys better than him, and my flex spot is usually going to be Ryan Mathews or Frank Gore... I am really scared by the QB options in Indy.... Wayne got 13 targets and 3 catches last week... I know that means they are looking to him, but it also means they cant get him the ball.... hmmmm...
