For me, I was excited about the idea of what Dionte could do this season with the full attention of Big Ben. The first few weeks DJ was peppered with plenty of targets, but didn’t do much to capitalize. However, I felt his value was still there based on his high volume and market share, but what he did with them was pretty underwhelming. Injuries aside.
Now Enter Chase Claypool. Even as far back as week 1 Chase has stood up and shown how talented he is on a per target basis, not only this last weekend, but since week 1. He’s been making incredible plays all year, just on very few targets.
Unfortunately, I own a ton on Dionte Johnson and only a few shares of Claypool here and there.
So what do we do now?
I say this is no time to be stubborn. Instead, let’s go HARD after Chase Claypool if he’s still on the waiver wire. He is a legit special talent and there is no point in being left behind holding onto what we thought Dionte Johnson could have been in the preseason.
I see Juju and Dionte being secondary pieces to Claypool from here on out. This new emergence doesn’t help Dionte. It only takes away more of what made him valuable, his target share. Target share he did very little with. I still think DJ is capable of big games in the offense, but it’ll be Claypool’s show from here on out. Everyone else is just a compliment.
Stay objective and choose wisely.
