It's risky. If the boys or dal play a tough d, you could be pretty boom or bust on a week to week basis... Could be critical come fantasy playoffs wk16. Bye week could be brutal too.

That said, draft the best talent available regardless of team. You can make trades too.

Not at the cost that it would take. You'd be investing too high of a pick and most likely not be getting points from both each week.

I would only do it if it were the case of a very low cost flyer later on for the 2nd WR from 1 team, such as Steve Smith and Lafell.

Ive never tried 2 receivers. I have steve smith and olsen though. But id take jones and white if it came to that. The risk i see is it could be hard to get big games out of both receivers in the same game...id be a lil worried about that. Id probably do more research to find the pros and cons because ive never seen someone with both 1 and 2 receivers from the same team

As this comes down to value, I would more inclined to only do with players who both catch a significant amount of passes. Not one pass catcher and then a boom or bust type player, i.e. Maclin Djax.

Another way of looking at it......when the QB goes for the end zone, 1 of your guys is definitely not going to score.

I'd do my best to avoid this scenario, however... If you get great value in picking the second WR, I think that's more logical than passing on him. You can always trade one of the two also if you do get the good value.

How is it that “fat chance” and “slim chance” mean the same thing?

In PPR it can work just fine.

There are a few teams where it might make sense, depending on the value:

DAL - Dez and Miles
NEP - Welker and Brandon
NYG - Hakeem and Salsa
GBP - Jennings and Jordy
ATL - Roddy and Julio
PIT - Wallace and Antonio
DEN - Decker and Demarius
NYJ - Santonio and Cromartie

Granted, in some of these cases, it's not likely you would end up with both since they're ranked close together.

But I've done it in the past. It never seemed to hurt me.

A couple years ago I routinely started Wayne and Garcon among my 4 WRs. In a way it was good because I didn't have to worry about deciding between them. If one went off and the other didn't, it was OK. At that time they tended to sort of trade off as the go-to guy.

imo... this is a little more extreme than going QB/WR on the same team. At least then you're getting points for all passing TD's, regardless of the catcher. Even with 2 Saints WR's this would be a gamble. Maybe the only team you'd do it on would be the Packers (Jennings + Nelson). Then again, my league isn't PPR, and thus TD heavy.

EDIT: Reading the previous poster... I'd add Nicks and Cruz to that list.

Hakeem and Salsa!

Yeah, PPR makes this more doable.

Passing games are so prolific now it's not a huge risk, especially if you can play 4 or 5 WRs in your league.

I would rather to draft qb/wr on the same team before going for wr/wr on the same team.

I would...at worst, you get a handcuff!

I just wouldn't take the second one over something else that I really needed.
