In a $200 salary cap PPR league which do you prefer:
Calvin Ridley $4
Tyreek Hill $36
I currently own Ridley. I have the workings of a deal to acquire Hill for Ridley (along with a couple first round rookie picks, nothing’s set in stone yet). On paper I prefer Tyreek - he’s consistently ranked as a top 5 WR - and Ridley is consistently ranked #17-22. Here’s where you have to look beyond what looks good on paper. At $36 Tyreek costs 9x more than Ridley at $4...but it’ll be nearly impossible that Tyreek will score 9x more points than Ridley. I figure at $4 there’s lots of room for Ridley to outperform his salary and he wouldn’t even have to do much (if he even finished as 15th overall for WRs that would be phenomenal for a $4 guy) but at $36 Tyreek would *need* to have scored at least top 10 numbers. $35 in my league for a top 5 WR is phenomenal value (top WRs go for about $55-$65 in my league).
Just thought it’d be a fun to discuss.
