Baker or Danny Dimes? *POLL!*

Postby lukkynumber13 » Fri Oct 18, 2019 10:22 am

I’ve had verbal negotiation with an owner in my league, he may be willing to swap his D. Jones for my Baker (team A).

Obviously 7 weeks ago, this would have been beyond laughable, but Mayfield AND the Browns O have both been so bad. Daniel Jones has looked good as an NFL quarterback, but as a fantasy QB, could be a QB1 with his running ability.
TEAM A - 12 teams (2018 champ, 2017 R/U)
BREES, Jimmy G, Rivers, Dalton, Keenum
COOK/JACOBS/GURLEY, Shady, AP, Gio, Gallman, Ollison, D Washington, M Davis, Laird, Scarlett, Ware, Rodney A
NUK/HILL/EVANS/GOLLADAY/K ALLEN, Edelman, Alshon, Sammy, P Campbell, Wims, Dez, Hardy
KITTLE, Waller, Herndon, J Graham, Eifert

Not listing my IDP, but they matter as much as offense in this league
///
///
TEAM B - 32 teams, double copy - TEs get slight bump in scoring (1st year league, tanking this year to build through 2020 draft)
DARNOLD, Carr, Rosen, Eli, Tyrod
SAQUON/MIXON, Hines, Gallman, L Miller, J Williams
NUK/EVANS/OBJ/K ALLEN/HOLLYWOOD, Coutee, Latimer
KITTLE/NJOKU, Ian Thomas, James O
-
Danielle Hunter and then a bunch of stashes for IDP

1QB or SF/2QB?

Baker has way more upside than Jones imo. Jones also has shown a penchance for turnovers. Since his great start, he has thrown 6 INTs in 3 games and, although he does not have a recorded fumble during that period, I believe he has fumbled a couple times too. His pocket presence needs improvement. At the end of the day, I think Baker is a better prospect and has better talent around him.

Single QB league.

What is it about Baker that causes you to say he has higher upside? - I’m asking sincerely, btw

baker is leading the nfl in interceptions tho? i'm genuinely curious why we're all (including me..I think) convinced that baker has more upside. he doesn't run, doesn't seem to have a very good coach. sure, he was drafted #1 overall rather than #6 but #6 overall from Duke is in some ways *more* impressive than #1 from OSU, is it not? maybe the giants got this one right? idk.

I've got them ranked similarly, but I'm a homer Giants fan. Figured I'd chime in after a 4 TD day for Jones.
