Colston (to go with Brees) or Steve Smith (the good one).

Colston is younger, and on one the most potent offenses ever.

Steve Smith is a freak of nature, with a very good, young QB.

It's really a tough call, so I say flip a coin.
Remember, its a deep league, and both could very well be late 1st to mid 3 round picks. Very well worth a 2nd.

I do not think any of these options are worth keeping if you lose a 2nd or/and 3rd round pick. They are not truly 2nd round or 3rd round value mostly due to their upside. I would rather have a Nicks or Jennings then a Smith or Colston. good luck! ;-D

See I don't know if it sets me back the first 3 right off the bat or if it sets me back on whatever pick they were / are

Remember, its 16 teams, and everyone gets to keep 1 WR, so the chances of a Jennings or Nicks being available, are slim. For every player you keep, you lose picks in order.
You keep Brees, Bradshaw, Colston, Witten, then you lose your first 4 picks. Regardless of position, or where they were drafted. You can keep 10 players total, so that means you lose your first 10 picks if you keep all 10, if you keep 9, you lose your first 9 picks, but that goes for everyone, and I hope most people are keeping all 10.

No chance of Nicks or Jennings being there. If most teams keep ten then that drastically effects the players available to select. I would keep Colston and Witten but Smith isn't far off. Do some research and hold off as long as you can before making a decision

No brainer, Colston and Smith...I like Ballard, but Written has had more good seasons than Ballad, so i go with track record and choose Written.

i'm going to take another spin on this.....if you expect most to keep 10.....I would throw most of these guys back....that way you can get some of the young guys coming out......instead of camparing these guys.....would you rather draft Richardson, Wright, Blackmon.....thinking I would go young......

But I do like Smith.....Colston is a Free agent so depends if he stays or goes...and remember his knees are bad.....

Which part of this didn't you understand, "I can keep 1 WR and 1 TE."

I would keep Smith most likely and probably Witten, but it all depends on who you think will be available.
