Hakeem Nicks or Julio Jones

Postby bradleyk » Sat Aug 11, 2012 4:26 pm

I drafted Julio Jones and a friend offered Hakeem Nicks for him. I had Julio Jones higher (#8 vs #10) on my big board, but now that I think about it, Manningham leaving might affect Nicks more than I thought. Plus Stephanie Bell seems sold that Nicks will be healthier by week one.

12 team. One point for one reception. I also have Jeremy Maclin and Mike Williams along with a few late round fliers.

Thanks.

I prefer Julio Jones. I think he has a little more upside and less of an injury risk.

All things being equal, just look at Nicks' past, and you'll see that he lands on the injury report every week. He's a headache worth avoiding, especially when the price is a potentially better WR like Julio Jones. Honestly, when you're looking at 2 guys ranked this close to each other, if you're trading away the healthy player, you're not winning the trade.
