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.

Thanks. Stacy does seem like the safest option here.
I alsmost forgot that I also have Percy Harvin on that roster (I'm in too many leagues). He definitely has the most upside here, but his health issues make me uneasy. Would you take him over Stacy?

If Harvin is healthy, then he's a steal for a 12th round pick. He's easily the best WR on the Seahawks roster, but as you eluded to, their run-first mentality might possibly limit his upside. On the other hand, Wilson has never had a WR like Percy Harvin to throw to, so maybe the Hawks offense gets a little more balance with Harvin in the lineup.
All this being said, Jordy Nelson has been money for the past few seasons. He might not seem as great of a value when you have to give up a 4th rounder to get him, but with Rodgers back in the lineup he should give you WR1 production levels.
Due to our idiotic league setup, we are required to select one keeper each season. We can't pass - everyone has to select one player to keep and nobody gives up a draft pick. For the record - I didn't make the rule and I've been trying to changed it for three seasons now.
Anyway, Josh Gordon was going to be my keeper before he decided to tank his career. I also had Julio Jones, but dropped him when he got injured since I was still in contention at the time and needed the roster spot (no IR position in our league). Anyway, this is a long-winded way of asking which of these lackluster options you would choose for a keeper (full point ppr): Zac Stacy, Keenan Allen, or Jordan Cameron? None of these guys would be worthy of a first round pick, but unfortunately they are the best options that I have from last year's roster.
At first look, Stacy seems like the obvious choice. However I worry about the Rams marginal passing attack and them having to lean on Stacy all season in a division that includes Seattle, San Fran and Arizona. Plus, our league is PPR and he really didn't factor much in the passing game last season.
Allen looked great, but again - I just wonder if he can do it again in a tough division.
Cameron was great for most of last year, but the QB situation in Cleveland is fluid. He did have good chemistry with Hoyer, but there's no guarantee that Hoyer will start. One thing in his favor is that pass catching TE's are like gold in our league.
