Titus Young or Justin Blackmon? Dynasty league PPR

Postby erdmanski1341 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 10:20 am

I have the fourth pick in a dynasty league and the top 3 picks likely will be Richardson, Martin and Luck. I need a WR, so who would you take in a dynasty league, Young or Blackmon? It's .5 PPR, so I think the edge goes to Blackmon there, but Young has a better quarterback and is in a better offense. I'll help in return

thats a tough call. i think Young will have better numbers this year, but Blackmon is very talented, he could suprise but i dont like his qb situation and if mjd comes back they are primarily a running team. I think he'd be a better keeper long term though, just based on his talent.

With PPR, Blackmon might be the best bet. Young will likely be the no.2, but they'll still use Burleson some. He isn't dead yet. Whereas Blackmon is the no.1 receiver on that team. He'll probably have a low reception percentage, but he'll be more likely to be thrown to 8+ times per game simply because he's the best target.

Sometimes run-first teams can be good situations for the number 1 wideout on the team. The safeties hedge in and an athletic WR like Blackmon can outjump a lot of CBs. Worked OK for brandon marshall at Miami last year, people think it will work for Andre Johnson this year.

Although I don't like Gabbert he has looked better during the pre-season and Blackmon is clearly his favorite target. I give Blackmon the slight advantage because I think he's a better overall wr and he's their number #1 threat in the passing game.
