Higgins for Akers?

Postby dvpkwys » Tue Jan 12, 2021 10:04 am

Looking to round out my RB's - have Cook and Taylor locked in. Would like another young back. I have a lot of WRS. Is Higgins too much? I have Burrow as well. NON PPR. Start 4WR, 2RB, 1FLEX

The other option I was thinking was 12th + Gabriel Davis - is that too low? He has Allen and is a huge Bills fan.
10 Team - NON PPR (5 Round Rookie Draft) - Start 2QB, 2RB, 4WR, 1TE, 1FLEX, 4DB, 4LB/DL/DB

Adams/Godwin/Allen/McLaurin (DJMoore, Boyd, Higgins, Gallup, GDavis)
Hockenson (SmithJR, Gesiki)
Budda/Abram/Hilton/Davis (Elliot, Simmons)

I would try the 1.12 and Davis first in case that gets accepted being a big Bills fan. Davis has big upside but it's likely light. I would hold Higgins over Akers but I prefer to build around WR's.

I think 12 and Davis gets a reject and no counter personally. Higgins for Akers seems fair to me.

I think Higgins for Akers would be a solid move for you given your respective RB and WR depth.

Of course Davis +1.12 is preferable, but as others have said it feels a bit light.

I have Akers and Higgins pretty close in my ranking. Slight edge to Akers. I only play PPR tho

In non ppr I think Akers is considerably more valuable. However, the face that you must start 4 WR and only 2 RBs might even it out.

I realize this wasnt helpful but if you want Akers i say go for it.

I missed this was non ppr. 10 team non ppr Akers pretty easily over Higgins for me, even starting 4 WR.

I have Burrow, so Higgins is a nice connection. I love DJM, but the QB play there is frustrating.
