AJ Brown or DJ Moore?

Postby McCafsteez » Fri Oct 30, 2020 9:00 am

Gator Sens and myself recently discussed who we would rather own on our latest podcast episode.

Gator Sens chose AJ Brown
I chose DJ Moore

I would like to settle this based on the DLF community.

Who would you rather have & why?

What would you need in return on top of the player you DIDN'T choose to make a swap?

If Robbie Anderson would move along I'd rather have Moore. Coaching staffs and how players are used matters, and I don't think either player's situation is likely to change in the foreseeable future. I own Moore, like his talent better, but I'd trade him straight up for AJ Brown.

AJB pretty easily for me. Not sure it is reasonable to expect anything added to a trade between these two. Pretty simiiar and a preference thing

Love both players, but would choose AJB straight up especially in non-ppr leagues. He's the top option on his team whereas DJM seems to be second to Robby. Also, Tannehill is a massive talent upgrade over Teddy.

Long term both of these guys are young and have talent to be top end WR in the NFL and fantasy for a long time. I'd expect whoever is going after the other to have to add to their side.

Own both, like both.

I'm a talent over situation guy but if the talent is even like in this case give me the guy in the better situation, AJ.

DJ Moore for me. I made a thread on why I am so high on him awhile back. Im headed out so not enough time to dig it up.

Man I'd love to hear some rationale behind why DJM is preferred to AJB. It's AJB and not close to me based solely on performance.

But genuinely if people are as bullish on DJM as they should be on AJB I'd be really interested to hear some takes.

AJ Brown and not really close. DJ is a good player but he doesn't have great burst or instincts. He doesn't cut equally off either foot and you will see if you study him closely.

AJB is prototype WR1. DJ is a solid WR2 and should have a solid year here or there. Moore isn't even the best WR on his team IMO.
The clock is running and there are no timeouts

How does DJM lack burst? I think thats a strength of his.

Super high on DJM but I think AJB is going to have a strong argument for the dynasty WR1 by end of season. If DJM were in a better situation I might lean DJM based on longer track record but AJBs situation just looks so much better right now.

AJ Brown for me. Not close.

Was high on DJM since he was drafted, but he's looking like an elite #2 rather than a true alpha. Hard for me to overlook him getting usurped by Robby Anderson.

I have them valued fairly close. If I had to chose between the two, I'd lean AJB. I own both in different leagues and wouldn't add much to either - but likely wouldn't trade one for the other anyway. DJ however is still 23 and has all the skills needed for a long productive fantasy career.

How is that your takeaway from his post?

I love DJ Moore, but its gotta be brown, both are very young, both are very talented, but Brown is producing more. Obviously Moore is in a terrible spot (low targets, and terrible QB) and isnt producing nearly as much as Brown.
