Ryan or Cam?

Postby jfarrell24 » Sun Jun 09, 2013 7:50 pm

I have a trade on the table where I would essentially be getting Cam Newton for Matt Ryan. I know Ryan is the "safer" option but Newton has more upside. This is dynasty league. Who would you rather have? Can you tell me how much better Ryan or Cam would be than the other?

Thanks, leave me a link and I'll help in return.

I have Matt Ryan a little better than Cam mainly because of the certainty but they are both very close. If Cam can get back to what he was I feel he can put up more overall points than Ryan but I really like Ryans floor more than Cam's.

I prefer certainty over risk/reward. If you were a risky type you would probably go the other way and put Cam first. ;-D

I have Cam well ahead of Ryan. Even though Cam had a "down" year last season, he still was fourth for quarterbacks in scoring. He is just 24 years old, so I see plenty of potential in Cam Newton. I do not think he is a big risk at all, especially at that price. I don't see much upside with Ryan. He is a mid to low range QB1.

YEah, Cam started slow but finished stronger than pretty much every QB in the league. The rushing TD's alone make him more valuable. Matt Ryan still has a tonne of value, that offence is way more consistent and high-octane all the time but if they can get some weapons in around Cam his upside trumps Ryan by a fair margin. I'd go Cam, but I have a man-crush.

I'd say Cam. Ryan is definitely 'safer', but I think Cam has much more upside already, and especially if he develops a little more (assuming 4 pts for passing TD's and 6 pts for rushing. If it's 6 points for all TD's its much closer for me)
