Hot takes - Lamb or Cooper?

Postby jtk1234 » Fri Sep 10, 2021 5:42 am

Small sample size but it looks like the Cowboys are going to be throwing a lot in negative game script with that atrocious defense.

Who do you prefer long term, Lamb or Cooper?

Bonus question: I know that Bucks line is stout but Elliot was not making much happen on his own last night, do you think we will see more of this Zeke or does he return to top five form? Personally I’m not optimistic, I think he will still get volume but I don’t think we will ever see a dominant Zeke again.

Cooper is an alpha WR but he and Lamb can both thrive. Lamb from a value and age standpoint but Cooper is a great WR. I think Zeke will get better. Tough game for him last night for sure.

Cooper is the better player, but Lamb is so much younger, in Dynasty, he holds more value.

If you're in you're in the running for a championship now, Cooper. If you're out a few years, give me Lamb.

Lamb for sure - they're close in redraft so in dynasty I'll take Lamb by a fair margin
TEAM A - 12 teams 1QB (20 R/U, 19 R/U, 18 Champ, 17 R/U)
HERBERT, Fields, Ryan, D Mills
COOK/JACOBS/MIXON/GIBSON, Dobbins, Pollard, S Perine, Ahmed
TYREEK/DK/NUK/AJB, Diontae, Hollywood, Golladay, Swaim, Hilton
WALLER, Kittle, Akins
-
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. Zero-LB and Zero-DB, baby!

TEAM B - 24 teams, double copy - SF, TEs get 1.5x bump in scoring
MAHOMES/CARR, Big Ben, Fitzmagic, Dalton, Lock
SWIFT/MIXON/GORDON, Conner, Mattison, Damien W, Stephenson, L Murray, Lindsay, Coleman
TYREEK/GOLLADAY/COOKS/OBJ, Shepard, Pascal, Tyrell W
WALLER/GOEDERT, Everett, Alie-Cox, Ebron, Granson
Donald & strong DEs are the cornerstones of my IDP squad.

I have both and struggle who to place in my lineup every week. I think I get it wrong 60% of the time :/ last year cost me the championship (lost by 2 in semifinals when I started cooper over lamb and he had one catch vs lamb who had double digit points 0 had highest points in finals week:/).

I think if you are contending Cooper, rebuild longer term Lamb - both are great pieces.

Maybe it is the early career Dr. Jeckle & Mr. Hyde routine. But I was so happy when I sold Cooper a few years ago. Yes, he's turned it around in Dallas. Gimme Lamb in the future. Gimme Lamb now.

I'd take Coop when he's healthy, right now, in a redraft mentality. He's better. Lamb gets the slot most and Cooper draws coverage away from Lamb. I don't think Lamb's nearly as good as most do. I can run straight down the field and catch a pass right in my hands with nobody covering me, his big play from last night. It's not that Lamb doesn't have talent, he does, but people seem to think he's this alpha WR and he's not. Not yet. Maybe some day he will be, but when both are 100 percent, Cooper is just a superior player.
