Puka + Dallas Defense for Joe Burrow

In a non-ppr, two WR, one QB, normal flex league, would you trade:

Puka Nacua + Cowboys Defense


Joe Burrow

Current starting QB is Trevor Lawrence, with Sam Howell as backup.

Receivers available after the trade would be:

  • Davante Adams
  • Mike Evans
  • Calvin Ridley
  • Nico Collins

I am trying to offload the Dallas defense because I also have the Chiefs and Jets defense, and prefer taking the soft matchup between those two because Dallas has a rough schedule in the fantasy playoffs.

You haven’t told us who your current QB’s are, but I suspect they aren’t as good as Burrow. Assuming that, I like this trade.

Burrow is playing lights out and a good upgrade over Lawrence this year. Do it.

That’s definitely in there. Starter is currently Trevor Lawrence, backup is Sam Howell.

My bad. Gotta be honest, Lawrence is playing better lately. If you look at their numbers this season, sure Burrow has some 20+ point games. He also has some single digit games (3 to be exact). Lawrence only has one single digit game, against KC The rest of his games are all 15+ points. You have to say Lawrence has the better floor, with Burrow having the better ceiling. It’s up to your own risk aversion.
