Just been offered Kamara straight up for Dalvin Cook in a full PPR league.
My other RB’s are:
Cook; David Johnson; Josh Jacobs; Sony Michel
Worried about Cook’s injury history but he has such a high ceiling. Is it worth the risk, or should i just take Kamara?
Get Kamara while you can!!
Wow thats a tough call. I think, while Brees is out, Kamara falls from a top 3 RB to a bottom half RB1 (8-10 range). I think is running volume will increase while the offense relies on him more, and Teddy TwoGloves is infamous as a dump-down artist so his passing work should stay steady. He falls because his TD upside takes a big hit.
Cook is in the same situation: the offense will roll through him, he’ll get work in the passing game, and his TD upside is dependent upon Cousin’s ability to lead an offense (shaky at best).
I think both RBs are going to be RB5-12 week in and week out depending on TDs. So, give me the less-injury prone player in Kamara and then in 6-8 weeks you get Brees back and a top 3 RB
I would stay with Cook personally. It’d be hard for me to trust Kamara without Brees. If youre worried about Cook, just handcuff him and exhale
