Kamara vs Dalvin

Postby cweds » Tue Nov 14, 2017 10:55 am

Who holds more value moving forward? Kamara has looked really explosive and since AP left he's been producing quite consistently. Who would you rather have for the 2018 season going forward?

Cook.
Kamara's been great, but give me the workhorse back. Cook was a stud before he got hurt.

I think it's still Cook, but it's much, much closer now.

Prefer Cook. Appears to be less dependent on surroundings. Feel like Kamara is at peak now and is in perfect situation but that won't last long. Not sure I see him being successful if/when Brees or even Payton leave.

Cook. let's not forget how great he looked and produced very quickly. Kamara is great - but NOS might have finally started liking Ingram - whom I personally love for redraft and got him on my zero RB team in the 9th round.
Team 1

Start: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 2 RB/WR/TE, K, DEF - 26 man roster

QB: D. Brees $9, C. Newton $20, P. Mahomes $5, B. Mayfield $2
RB: D. Johnson $54, D. Henry $14, T. Coleman $4, N. Chubb $4, I. Crowell $3, B. Powell $4, J. Allen $6
WR: A. Robinson $41, T.Y. Hilton $24, J. Landry $25, D. Thomas $25, C. Davis $4, C. Godwin $4, M. Goodwin $9, K. Cole $2, D. Jackson $4, S. Shephard $10, R. Anderson $3
TE: E. Engram $4, D. Njoku $2, K. Rudolph $3
K/DEF: Irrelevant

2019 Changes coming: SUPERFLEX, + 2 roster spots, 1 mandatory rookie draft starter, no more K/DEF, HARD cap going from $200 to $220.

Team 2

Start: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 2 RB/WR/TE - 25 man roster + 4 TAXI

QB: T. Brady, M. Ryan, N. Foles
RB: K. Hunt, C. McCaffrey, T. Coleman, D. Johnson, S. Ware, Ito Smith, D. Sproles
WR: AJ Green, A. Robinson, A. Thielen, E. Sanders, DJ Moore, T. Pryor, T. Smith
TE: J. Reed, J. Butt, M. Roberts, V. Davis
TAXI: S. Darnold, D. Fountain, D. Cain, Jaleel Scott

As an owner of each of these guys I would agree I still prefer Dalvin long term because it seems like he'll be used as a workhorse. Unfortunately Dalvin is on my playoff team and Kamara is on my building team, wish I could swap them this year.

What really intrigues me with Kamara is the possibility of NO cutting Ingram. There's an out in his contract this offseason and with Brees needing an extension (or a FA QB) they may need the cap space. Ingram has played well but maybe they think they can get by With Kamara and Jonathan Williams? Also, it's important to remember that Kamara is actually listed at 5 lbs heavier than Dalvin so maybe he could handle more touches?

Give me Kamara. Can't deny whats he's doing in his rookie year and how great he's been playing. Cook looked good too, but played like, what, 3 games?

It's still Cook, I think.

I own Kamara- and saw this thread. I'm in full rebuild and basically tanking. I offered Kamara to the Cook owner, who has a great chance to win it all.

He wouldn't even hear me out.
I don't really blame him... I love Kamara, but would rather have Cook long term.

I tried the same trade in the same situation and I was also turned down. Seems like the market still values Cook significantly more.

If we are not including this season, then Cook's value is safer and I would take him. But in a league where Kamara is putting me over the top this year, I am not trading him for Cook.

i love them both and there isnt a wrong answer here.. Kamara did this while def tried to game plan for him.. he is a rare talent that will be succefully even when brees is gone.. cant teach some of the things he does.. and cook is a stud in his own right i wish I had them both.

I sadly sold Kamara during my devy draft before the season started. But I would take him over Dalvin all day. Dalvin has a pretty solid injury history and I wasn't a fan of him when he was drafted.
