Thanks. I meant to say RB, but may have a lot better luck with a WR. That might be a much better idea actually.

I offered Tyler Boyd for Antonio Gibson a couple weeks ago, before Gibson had shown much, to a very weak WR team that could spare the depth. I got a counter for Tyreek Hill, so either he was offended or deluded. Go figure

guys, if for some reason you have Todd Gurley, I think it's time to sell high

He looked ok last night but he isn't the guy he use to be. He's getting zero passing work and is getting bailed out by touchdowns. It's not sustainable. Maybe hold another week as they play Carolina but I'd start floating some trade offers to those teams hit by the injury bug.

lol...

I agree ezv, my issue is I've been shopping him, even pairing him with Julio or another WR from the start of the season and I can't get anyone to bite other than getting ridiculous counter offers.

Maybe some team will decide there's something real there after that game, but the underlying numbers are bad (or at best mediocre) and the league I have him in doesn't have any coaches who don't look beyond just the point totals. Which is nice for competition, but sometimes annoying because we all fixate on some metric for our guys and not for other guys.

But that's a problem generally where you like to think your guys are better than they are and the other teams guys are worse than they are. Until you covet someone in a trade and then that logic flips.

LOL to all this.. Probably like this in most leagues. I think the point total fixation is the most annoying particularly when it's the result of a big week or two out of 8-10. Hard to overcome

Dynasty Trade Question: Start 2 RB, 3 WR. 0.1 point per carry; 0.5 point per rec; 0.1 yard carry/rec

Give: Kamara
Get: Aaron Jones, Allen Robison; Drew Lock; 2022 1st round rookie pick

Current Team:
QB: Aaron, Big Ben, Jimmy G
RB: Kamara, James Robinson, Mostert, McKinnon, Murray, AP
WR: Julia, AJ, TY, Cooks, Keelan Cole, Adam Humphries, Zaccheaus

Does adding Robinson and a 2022 pick help me out by going Jones instead of Kamara?

I probably would. Don't care for Drew, but you get 2 quality players there and a 1st round pick.

Yes. Kamara is fantastic, but that's an outstanding return, and Robinson is worth more than the small difference between Kamara and Jones, especially with your desperate need for a quality WR.

14 team - PPR

My Team
QB: Dak Prescott
RB: Alvin Kamara, Chris Carson, Jerick McKinnon, Phil Lindsay, Alexander Mattison, Jamaal Williams
WR: DJ Moore, Robert Woods, Devante Parker, Deebo Samuel
TE: Hockenson (bye), Austin Hooper
IR: Goedert

His Team
QB: Tom Brady, Jared Goff
RB: David Johnson, Darrel Henderson, Zack Moss, Cam Akers, Gus Edwards
WR: Tyreek Hill, Davante Adams (bye), Trequan Smith, Darius Slayton
TE: Jonnu Smith, Evan Engram

Carson/Deebo/Hooper for Adams/Engram/D. Johnson

What's your guys' opinion on this trade? He wants a RB1 and I want a WR1. However, I like my balance/depth and not sure if it would be a wash to my starting lineup.

I had high hopes of landing a big fish but have this offer to consider in a standard. I feel like det rbs are similar to ne ones and edmonds has a shot to take that job with higher potential ceiling But woods is pretty great. pass or take?

swift, woods for lamb, edmonds

Possible swap of lamb for chark

PASS...without carson in your lineup your 1 injury away from disaster at the rb position,david johnson is an rb3 and your wrs look fine to me,maybe try and add a tee higgins to your lineup and youll be strong
