Supply and Demand for WR....


Every year it seems like there are a handful of WRs that step in and immediately make a impact. But for every Justin Jefferson there is a Denzel Mims. WRs can be found throughout the draft Puka is a great example of this and with the frequency of these WRs coming into the league and the rising cost of veteran WRs should we gamble on a rookie or trade for the sure thing? Yes a rookie contract is valuable but the development of AR could be more important.

I'm not a Salary Cap wizard but from my understanding all bonuses stay with the team that trades the player and the new team is only responsible for base salary.

Honorable Mentions

Davante Adams

Reason why he's not included is because I doubt he wants to restart with a young QB (especially when A-Rod is out there)

Stefon Diggs

Reason why he's not included is because of his dead cap cost if he is traded.


WR who maybe available for the right price

AJ Brown


Stats

2023) 106 rec/ 1,456 yds/ 7 tds

PFF: 90

2023 106 rec/ 1,456 yds/ 7 tds

Cost

2024 1,1M/ 2025 15.25M& 2026 30.25M

Why

Where's there is smoke there's fire.... Rumors has it that he's unhappy in Philadelphia

Trade Proposal

1st round

Flight Risk

3 out of 5 (low) 10.6 million deadcap if post June-1st

Indy Fit

Deep separation and sure hands. Two physical WR (MPJ and Brown)that will beat up on outside CBs all game.

Similar find in Draft: Rome Odunze

Similar find in FA: Mike Evans

George Pickens

Stats

2023) 63 rec/ 1,140 yds/ 5 tds

PFF: 75.3

Cost

2024 1.3M/ 2025 1.6M

Why

Lately the Steelers haven't been shy about trading. This organization hasn't had any trouble hitting on WR. We seen them let Juju-smith-schuster walk and trade Claypool. Using Pickens to get a pick (for a trade up for QB) could be more valuable long-term than just having Pickens.

Flight Risk

3 out of 5

Trade Proposal

2023 2nd round and 2024 4th round

Indy Fit

The possibility of still selecting Brock Bowers and giving SS and AR potentially a top offense for years to come. George Pickens has all the talent in the world and hasn't had the QB to date. He can separate, block and be a game changer as long as he is involved in the game.

Similar find in the draft: Adonai Mitchell

Similar find in FA: Tee Higgins

DJ Moore

Stats

2023) 96 rec/ 1,365 yds/ 8 tds

PFF: 89.4

Cost

2024 15.85M and 2025 14.85M

Why

Is DJ Moore a WR1 or 2? The Bears could trade him away without any deadcap. Flipping him similar to Bradin Cooks who was traded for a 1st round pick several times.

Flight Risk

1 out of 5

Trade Proposal

1st round

Indy Fit

Every year he has had a different QB but has been effective. Speed, routes and the balls to go over the middle is his bread and butter.

Similar find in Draft: Malik Nabers

Similar find in FA: Curtis Samuels

Brandon Aiyuk

Stats

2023) 75 rec/ 1,342 yds/ 7 tds

PFF: 92.3

Cost

2024 14M

Why

49ers are against the cap and we may reap the benefits again

Flight Risk

4 out of 5

Trade Proposal

1st round

Indy Fit

Aiyuk will take the top off defenses. He has expanded his route tree since entering the league and has carried the 49ers in Debo Samuels absence. He will force defenses to choose between loading boxes for AR and JT or playing deep.

Similar find in Draft: Xavier Worthy

Similar find in FA: Marquise Brown

Jerry Jeudy

Stats

2023) 54 rec/ 758 yds/ 2 tds

PFF: 67.8

Cost

2024 13M

Why

Disappointing career as a 1st round pick.

Flight Risk

5 out 5

Trade Proposal

2023 4th round

Indy Fit

Jerry Jeudy is a route mechanic. We have complained about our WR separation and not having a quick separating WR. Jeudy is the answer for these problems.


Similar build in Draft: Jermaine Burton

Similar build in FA: Calvin Ridley


Tyler Lockett

Stats

2023) 79 rec/ 894 yds/ 5 tds

PFF: 78.1

Cost

2024 16M/ 2025 15M

Why

Seahawks need defense and Lockett effectiveness has diminished without Wilson moon ball.

Flight Risk

4 out 5

Trade Proposal

4th round pick

Indy Fit

Beyond being a sure handed WR thats a threat on all levels, its always good to have a vet that has seen almost everything and can show the young guys how to be a professional.

Similar build in Draft: Ricky Pearsall

Similar build in FA: N/A

Should we gamble on a rookie or trade for a proven commodity?


Which WR do you want or would fit best with AR?


How do you rank these guys with the incoming draft?


Are my trade proposals to high or to low?

Should we pay top dollar for 2 WR to accelerate Anthony Richardson development?


Any names I miss?
