Dwayne Bowe or DeSean Jackson

Postby Slim Pickings » Sun Jul 29, 2012 6:41 pm

Same draft different round now.

It's a PPR league.

Who would you guys take Bowe or Jackson?

I'm leaning towards Bowe


thanks in advance

I would take Bowe and its not even close. I think D JAX is one of the most overrated players in fantasy football. He really only has value in leagues where you get a bonus for long TD's. He is no better than a #3 WR in PPR leagues, IMO.

The thing about Jackson is I think he's going to play with something to prove, he just got his new contract too.

DJAX didn't play hard when he was trying to land a huge contract. Usually, guys bust their butts when they want a new deal. What makes you think he will be motivated now that he got paid? He has a bad attitude and I don't think he is that good. If he dosen't catch a bomb for a TD, his stat line will probably be 3 catches for 30 yards. Go back and look at his game by game stats, they weren't good.

Dwayne Bowe not even close. Had Cassel not been hurt he could have been top 2-3. Jackson is not all that great as an all around WR, Bowe is.

If we're talking about players who have something to play for, it has to be Dwayne Bowe. He'll be playing this season begrudgingly on a franchise tag and will most likely be entering free agency next year. That's motivation for a guy who wants to get paid.

I'd take Bowe and never look back. Macklin and McCoy will be the PPR guys on the Seaguls

I just don't like DeSean Jackson. He seems to show up big in some spots while completely disappearing in others. Now that he got his fat paycheck, I don't see him lighting the world on fire. He's often come off as a very selfish player and now that the $$$ is of no motivation, will he play? I don't see it. I like Bowe's track record a bit more. He's also the clear #1 fantasy target for touchdown production on the Chiefs. I think LeSean McCoy, Maclin and Celek all will chip away at Jackson's scoring chances. Bowe had 15 scores two years ago and I do agree that were it not for injuries, he would have hit double-digit scores again in 2011.

You could do worse than DeSean, obviously. But I'd stick with Bowe.

It is a 50/50 toss up for me who is the most overrated WR in fantasy land. Is it Vincent Jackson or Desean Jackson, either way Bowe is more talented and better than both of them
