Tough one for me, I'd prob lean Kupp for the "better to build on WR's than RB's" rule . . . plus age difference and MGIII uncertainty for landing spot next year.

Kupp. Looks the part of a legit top 10 -15 WR. Still young. Gordon is a toss up on where he will land.

I probably would have said Gordon prior to the season, but has to be Kupp now.

I was offered Melvin Gordon and Alshon Jeffrey

For

Kupp and Chris Herndon

I really like Kupp and agree with all the responses on his value

I like Alshon over Herndon, so if i am contending this year, I like the Gordon+ side.

Really close tho.
BOTH TEAMS BELOW ARE 1QB

TEAM A - 12 teams (19 R/U, 18 Champ, 17 R/U)
HERBERT, Brees, Tua, Wentz
COOK/JACOBS/MIXON, Dobbins, Swift, Hunt, Singletary, Bell, B Hill, Wilkins
NUK/HILL/GOLLADAY/K ALLEN, Diontae J, Hollywood, Ruggs, Pittman, Hilton, G Davis, Snead
KITTLE, Waller, Akins, H Bryant
-
Not listing my IDP, but they matter as much as offense in this league. Joey Bosa, Buckner, Sweat, and Cam Jordan are my main studs.
///
///
TEAM B - 32 teams, double copy - TEs get 1.5x bump in scoring
LAMAR, Cousins, Rivers, J Love
SAQUON/MIXON/CARSON, Dobbins, Lindsay, Mattison, Ingram, D Freeman, Clement
NUK/K ALLEN/JULIO/AROB, Evans, Thielen, DJ Moore, Lamb, Boyd, Coutee, Alshon
KITTLE/L Thomas, Ertz, Reed
Danielle Hunter, Aaron Donald, and Chris Jones are the cornerstones of my IDP squad.

Kupp side for me because I'm not huge on Jeffrey. He seems fragile and not enough upside for make up for it. And lots of unknowns with Gordon.

The gap between Alshon and Herndon is maybe a 3rd at this point? And I'd rather have Kupp than Gordon + 3rd.

I’d take Kupp as well, but keep in mind he’s also 26, only two months younger than Gordon, there is no real age difference.

26 is much different for a WR than a RB. That is definitely a real age difference for fantasy value.
