Honestly I like Ertz more but I don’t see how you can let Cooper go.

Are you able to make keeper trades and offer them both to someone for another stud?

Ertz...positional scarcity for top end TEs wins out over the WR2 of Cooper

Very close, but since you already have the two best WRs in dynasty, I'd rather have a stud TE to go along with them. Can you trade Cooper for a pick or package him with Kamara and go after Zeke or Bell?

Ertz. Not close. He’ll likely outscore Cooper in raw points at a position that is much more difficult to replace.

Cooper. It’s like people forget he had two 1000 yard seasons... I remember when people were down on Gurley last year too....

With only 5 keepers I’m assuming there’s plenty of talent in your draft. I’d be comfortable keeping Ertz over Cooper in this format

Go with Ertz. A top-end TE over a guy like Cooper for sure.
