Footballguys staff members discuss players whose sum is more than their individual parts

There are some pairs of players who are worth far more when they are both on one fantasy roster than they are as individuals. Name some of these pairs. Why are they more valuable together? Are you specifically targeting these players?

Chad Parsons: My first reaction to this question is thinking of unsettled running back depth charts - or ones where a committee approach is the preseason projection. While both (or more) options has some fantasy appeal, the true value comes from getting the most valuable (or last man standing if there is an injury) correct down the line.

For example, the Patriots backfield has been tough to project weekly, but Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead could both be relevant at times in the interior or power role. Collecting both when the depth is adequate can offer starting-lineup clarity when/if one is out of the lineup.
