It's not, but I don't own Reed anywhere. I don't disagree that they both have chronic injury issues. But Reed was dominant when playing. Brown was a solid but unspectacular play when healthy, so that's where I'm drawing the distinction. Saying Brown is the WR version of Reed is too generous, so essentially I'm agreeing with your low valuation of him.

Ekeler easy for me. particularly in ppr which is all the leagues I'm in. I've owned Brown for some time. I'm done holding and waiting. I cut him loose just a few days back in favor of M.Hollins. Brown can be someone else's headache. I don't think he'll be in the league long. Has the talent but not stability of health. Feel for him as he was an exciting player in flashes.

I would rather take Ekeler. The relationship that will continue to grow with Rivers will be great. Rivers loves RB's that can catch out of the backfield, he loved Woodhead and now he has Ekeler. Stick with Ekeler.
