I would do that. Marshall actually was the # 1 WR in PPR just barely beating out Megatron last season. But Megatron is considered the best receiver in football so he gets the slight edge here.

Then you have to compare Shorts to Johnson. Johnson is aging and has lost a step but he still is a top #5 PPR receiver. Shorts is a great talent on a crappy team with a crappy QB throwing to him.

So, I would make the trade. You would come out ahead.

Just be warned that Marshall is still not 100 percent due to the hip surgery he had in the off-season. He said that today. But he was not clear if it is just a conditioning issue or a sore hip.

I would still make the trade. You would have two top # 1 PPR receivers on your squad. And there is great value in that.

I like the trade as well, I'm not too worried about Marshall's hip. And your team should get better bc of the huge upgrade to shorts.
