Kupp or shepherd

Who to start this week? I have Michae Thomas , Golden Tate as WR1,2 and need flex help.
I like Kupp’s red zone targets and slot action. And I love shepherds situation with engram out and the horrible saint defense.

Full PPR

Thoughts ? :metal:

Between those two, I would go Shepard, who has quietly been very consistent over the last couple years and is in a great spot as you mentioned. Kupp is going against a good pass defense, and has been the third option in his own wr corp so far. However, I would go Kerryon over both probably .

I was leaning Shepard too.
I like kerryone a lot too but for PPR the targets Shepard will get are better and I feel that kerryone needs a week or two to fully be their workhorse and get more targets.

Hey man all you can do is make the most informed decision at the time. Before the game, Kupp and Shepard are both pretty close plays. I would’ve told you Kupp is safer floor and shepard higher ceiling. With Engram out and Saints losing their starting slot CB, I think there’s still a really good shot of shepard balling out for you. Hang in there buddy.

I just traded away Kupp tonight for Cooks in a combo deal haha and I’m starting shepard in another league so hoping for same as you :wink:

I tried to get Cooks in every league I could this past week but was unsuccessful and he we are, the passes are connecting now lol.

Yeah the buying window for cooks has closed.

I’m just happy I got him in one of my leagues finally. Cost me the week probably cause I had to give up Kupp but I’m fine with it.

Oh well there will be windows for other players to buy low on. Hell, the only trade I finished this week was the Hilton for Gronk trade in my main league.
