Who would you rather have:

Rivers and Brandon Lloyd or Schaub and Dez.

This is a 2QB league, 6pts for pass TD, PPR, 3WR, 2RB etc.

I have Eli as my qb1 and other receivers are Nicks, Colston and Maclin.  Interested to see what you all think

Very even IMHO, but I'd rather have Schaub and Dez, not a fan of Lloyd with all the options on the Pats O.

what he said. Lloyd will compete with Hern, Welk, Gonz for looks. Lloyd will be decent.  In Dallas, it's Dez, Whitten (inj) & Austin. IMO Dez becomes the #1 this year as long he stays committed. I also think Schaub is better than Rivers.

Thanks for the input.  I was actually on the other side of this trade getting Rivers and Lloyd.  I have Gates as my TE and I see a big year out of him and hope to gain a lot from that hookup.  I'm also from Boston, so I let my heart play this one a little more than my brain.  I am interested to see what Lloyd can produce, but your points are very valid.

Appreciate it

Rivers and Lloyd are MUCH safer IMO.  Schaub has injury issues and Dez has idiot issues.  I would have made that trade in a second.

Rivers and Lloyd are better tandem. For starters Schaub will be throwing less. Andre Johnson is getting old and seems to have health issues ever year. Secondly they have the best run zone blocking scheme in the game with the BEST running back. This is a running team that will be playing from ahead in the 4th quarter most of the year. I love Dez but who knows with his off the field issues.

I love Rivers to have a bounce back year. He`s a proven fantasy stud who had a bad year last season. And I`m not buying into Lloyd having too much competition for touches. Brady will throw for over 5,000 yards. Give Gronk, Welker and Hernandez 3,500 of those. You still have many more yards to go. Besides, we know Brady LOVES to throw deep. Remember, he had Moss and broke all sorts of records with him. I just think Lloyd will have a HUGE season.
