Drop Blackmon for Givens? WHIR

Postby dawson94 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 12:56 pm

PPR. I have Justin Blackmon, while Chris Givens is available on the waiver wire. Blackmon is the #1 guy in Jacksonville and is probably more talented. Givens has a much better quarterback and is on a pass-happy team. He's also been get the most targets there. What do you think?

It really depends on who else you have at WR. If you can afford to be sitting Blackmon for the 4 weeks he's suspended then I think I'd keep him. Not sure I can trust any St Louis WR's even with Bradford at QB and playing from behind most of the year. You saw last year what Blackmon can do and he won't be double teamed with Shorts, Lewis and MJD on the field. Where Givens will get the defenses top corner guy.

I like them both but Givens a little more because of the suspension and the QB situation. Blackmon is a superb talent stuck in a bad situation.

How many guys on your bench? Blackmon is the superior talent and if you ca get through the first 4 weeks he's a big addition.
