Better Value?

Postby wtr23 » Sun Apr 28, 2013 11:47 am

Which TE would you rather have and why... Tyler Eifert (CIN) or Zach Ertz (PHI). .5 PPR, 6 pt/TDs, 1 pt/15 rec yds

I'm assuming this is dynasty, so I always lean to the better player and take situation out of the equation. Eifert is better, I take him. If it is a redraft, I like Ertz more this year.

Yes this is dynasty (thats why I posted in the dynasty forum :-D )... I figured both were going to teams that may try to incorporate the 2 TE offense we've seen in New England, Baltimore, San Francisco, etc. Would you consider either in the first round of a rookie draft? My other TEs are Heath Miller, Brandon Myers, and Delanie Walker.

Part 2... Montee Ball or Marcus Lattimore? Both teams had older RB1s at the start of the season. McGahee is all but out of the picture in Denver, and Gore battles injuries and constantly plays banged up. I imagine Ball has a chance to land the starting job in Denver, moreso than Lattimore in San Francisco. I think Lattimore rides the bench awhie, allowing him some time to get back to 100% after multiple injuries in college.

That being said, who do you like going forward? I'm the Frank Gore owner in the league, so it'd be nice to have a handcuff even if he isn't producing this year. Then again, Ball could easily start contributing this year in a weak Denver running game. Bernard, Lacy, and Bell are off the board, and I got the next pick. Is there another back I didn't mention that you'd rather have in this situation?

I would take Ball over Lattimore. I think Ball can produce right away in the Broncos system. I think it is close though. I prefer Eifert over Ertz, but I do not like either much.

Good pick. Easy choice. Lattimore has too many questions with the 2 knee injuries one devastating.
