Hey guys, big fan of your site. Apologies if this isn't the right place to post this, but in my fantasy football keeper league I just made a trade to aqcuire the first overall rookie pick. I've narrowed my choices down to Moreno or Wells pretty much, but I wanted to get some advice from fans who know more about the team and player than me. I can keep rookies for up to five years, so immediate impact isn't the only criteria, but my team is expected to be a contender so I do want a player that will help this year.
My question to you is who would you take in this situation, bias aside, for your fantasy team? I have basically standard scoring except there's .5 PPR, plus 3 bonus points for 100 yards rushing or receiving and 2 more bonus points for 150 yards rushing or receiving.
Moreno should be mostly a full-time back with some good receiving value, though McDaniels rotated backs a lot in New England, Moreno is probably not as explosive as Wells, and the Broncos shouldn't be nearly as good as the Cardinals.
Wells has a lot of ability, but may not start right away and Tim Hightower may steal third down/goal line carries, Wells has durability issues, and is in a pass first offense.
I'm leaning towards Moreno but I just wanted some more opinions. I'm posting this on Mile High Report as well to see what Broncos fans think. Any help is very much appreciated. Otherwise, keep up the great work on the site!
Which back would you rather have in fantasy football for the next few years?
