    Who would you keep?

    This is a PPR league and you lose the round the player was drafted in. Not really caring about the round because they're both very late but who will have a better year. RIley Cooper might be the number one guy now with Jackson now and Foles loves him. But now Goldan Tate is in a Pass happy offense and will be covered one on one a lot with Calvin on the other side. Who would you keep and why? Thanks for your input.

    Golden Tate (Lose round 22 out of 28)
    Riley Cooper (Lose round 28 out of 28)

    • Golden Tate by a Mile... More Talented and is in a better situation.

    • Between the two, I'd go with Tate. Jordan Matthews may very well beat out Cooper for a starting job. He may even become Foles' #1 target. Big, strong, and fast. More gifted and physical than Cooper or Macklin. Tate will be a bona fide #2 and see lots of single coverage.

    • Neither figures to be all that strong. Tate as the number 3 option behind Calvin and the RBs should be at or close to startable. I doubt that The Bigot reaches startable level. He had trouble gaining coverage separation WITH DeSean last season and the Eagles did nothing to replace the deep threat DeSean posed. I doubt Cooper reaches WR4 level.

    • Riley Cooper did a nice job last season all things being considered, but I just don't know if he's a bona fide #1 guy. I think he may have been the beneficiary of having a vertical threat like DJax keeping safeties honest.

      I think Tate is the more talented (albeit diminutive) option. He also has the huge advantage of having Megatron draw double and triple coverage. I think you'll see him flourish in that offense. Hell, he had a good year in Seattle last season and their passing game is pretty weak compared to the Lions.
